Last week we had a few more days when winter decided it wasn’t done with us yet. I decided that was possibly my last chance to bust out my faux fur vest. I’d been wanting to wear it with my olive green shirt and leopard wedges ever since I pinned a similar look from Christine at The View from 5 ft. 2 (who I have actually met in person when she lived in Chicago).
Vest – Express via Poshmark (similar) | Shirt – Nordstrom Rack (similar) | Jeans – American Eagle Outfitters (same) | Shoes – TOMS (similar) | Necklace – Gorjana & Griffin via Rocksbox (free month with code looplooksxoxo)
When I walked into my boss’s office wearing this vest he exclaimed, “Nice jacket!” Considering my boss wears dress pants and a polo shirt 4 out of 5 days (and on the fifth he wears jeans and a polo) I wouldn’t say he’s the paragon of fashion. But, ever since I told him I needed to leave early to get my photo taken for Crain’s I think he’s been keeping an eye on my outfits.
But let’s talk about this necklace for a minute. I have a very similar one from The Limited but I’ve had this one from Rocksbox for a week or two and I want to wear it all the time. I don’t even know why! In fact, I might just decided to replace my one from The Limited with it.
Interesting side note: I wore this shirt (and that similar necklace!) on my very first day at my current job and featured Chewie in that post, too. Crazy to see how much we’ve both changed in that seemingly short amount of time! I never thought I’d be wearing jeans as much as I do and I never thought Chewie would get as big as he has!
