Outfit: Grandma’s Fur

Vintage Fur // J.Crew Loomknit Sweatshirt // Splendid Layers Tank // gifted Hudson Velveteen Jeans

gifted Banana Republic Heels // Chanel Bag // Karen Walker Perfect Day Sunglasses

I’m really lucky in that my mom has some pretty amazing treasures in her closet that she has generously passed down to me.  A prime example would be this vintage fur that belonged to her grandmother.  I love it, so much.  The thing about a dramatic fur stole like this is that it can be hard to wear in “real life.”  It’s beautiful, but not always the most practical thing for everyday wear.  I decided to challenge myself to use the fur to dress up my usual (far more casual) look.  I paired it with a cozy sweatshirt (new fave), velvet jeans, and pretty heels.  The result is a fun mixture of cozy and elegant.

    I love that fur is trending right now so it gives us a perfect reason to wear something that, you’re right, can be hard to wear in our everyday lives! I have a fur stole from a Halloween costume when I was little that I can’t seem to track down.

    [...]  That croissant… just too good.  You might remember the sweatshirt, which I dressed up here this Fall.    So comfy.  I thought I’d give it a preppy touch by layering it over my [...]
