I’ve been wearing this faux fur vest for a few (Southern California) winters now and can always rely on it as a light piece of outerwear that adds something special to my outfit. And at under $40 right now, it’s an affordable staple piece to add to your winter wardrobe. This vest can take a casual look and add a bit of glam to it without trying too hard as well as take a more dressy-casual look, like this one, up a notch.
I always order size Medium (women’s size 4-6) at Chicwish and would say their sizing is like Juniors. Their quality is comparable to Zara. Shipping is a little slower than maybe Nordie’s or Amazon Prime, but it is a legit website that I’ve been working with for years now and highly recommend for affordable and trendy fashion.
As I’m sure you’ve noticed over the years, I like to mix high and low wardrobe pieces. My silk floral tunic is a gorgeous investment piece I’ve worn to a few blogging events and going out to the movies to see Bad Moms Christmas in the last few months. It’s on major sale right now for under $100! The silk fabric feels so good on the skin, and the cut is breastfeeding-friendly too. It’s a beautiful, special addition to my closet that I can wear for years.
My leggings are another investment pair that’s paid me dividends in the fashion department for years. They’re 25% off today and worth every penny! They have a faux leather effect on them and wash well in the machine (I do inside out and in cold water to be safe). These leggings are high-waisted and suck me in everywhere I need a little extra mom support. They’re my favorite black leggings for dressier looks because of the finish and how they make me feel in them, but they can totally work for athleisure looks with a more casual sweater on top.
My suede over-the-knee boots are Stuart Weitzman Lowland’s in the color “Currant” from last year. I have 4 pairs of suede OTK boots now (black, dark grey, light grey, and this burgundy) and can’t stress enough how much I love them all and how much fun I have with the different colors. Over-the-knee boots make an awesome Christmas present to yourself!
