Comments I’ve gotten today on my faux fur vest and plaid shirt outfit include “Nice vest!” “You look very ‘Nanook of the North today.” and “Cute vest!” I’m going to go with the idea that the Nanook comment was a compliment. Turns out this is the perfect outfit for the first day with temperatures hovering around freezing while I wait for the train. My core is nice and toasty therefore the rest of me feels just fine.

I recently purchased this skirt from The Limited and even though it’s described on their website as a “mini” it hits me at a perfect length. I bought it a size larger than normal so that it would sit lower on my hips and I suppose it also helps that I’m only 5’4”. But I have long legs! So, if you’re eying this skirt (which is currently on sale) and thinking it might be too short, I’m here to say it’s probably not. And, as you can see, it totally dresses up a Nanook of the North outfit.

    What a cute outfit! And that vest looks sooo warm! I adore the belt too..that bow is a nice feminine touch! I love the booties with it and want to buy a pair but am never sure what they would go with…there’s a “You Pick Wed” idea for you unless you’ve done it already and I missed it! 🙂

    Wow, this is a really cool outfit! The shirt would be so casual on its own, but paired with a fur vest and the dainty bow belt, it really gets dressed up. And I just like the look of the vest and belt together. Very cute!

      Even just putting this with jeans instead of the skirt and tights would make it perfect for a more casual outfit. And, yeah, this vest is pretty bulky and square so the belt helps keep it from looking too ridiculous.
