I had wanted a faux shearling vest for so long. They are so versatile. On warmer winter days, you can wear it alone with a comfy sweater… and on those really cold days you can layer it under your winter coat. A clever friend of mine took two IKEA sheepskin rugs and sewed them together to form a super chic shearling vest (still not quite sure how she did it!) but I’m not quiiiite that inventive. This one from Joie is amazing (and it’s a great price). Note: it keeps selling out. I found it in grey here and here, but I also found some other really cute faux shearling vests here (my fav option and it’s under $100!), here, here, and here.
I originally was going to share some goals for January today, but I got really sick yesterday! My parents were in town on Monday night so I went out for the most incredible sushi-family-dinner, only to wake up at 2am sick as a dog (and continue to be sick all day). No one else got sick so I don’t think it was food poisoning(?) but I don’t remember the last time I felt this rotten!!! A stomach bug, an allergy to one of the fishes maybe(?)… not sure, but it was pretty awful either way.
So instead I wanted to talk to you about another great passion of mine… television. Specifically, The OA. Did anyone else watch? It’s the latest series from Netflix and has gotten so much buzz (not necessarily for the best). It’s a really weird show. I won’t say I loved it, but I am glad I watched the whole thing because it’s all anyone around me can seem to talk about! I watched the whole season in all of two days and afterward I felt like I was in a little bit of a trance. I also felt a little depressed! And now the big debate – was she telling the truth? (I kind of thought she was!!!) Talk to me guys. I’m dying to hear what you think!!!
Outfit Details: Joie Vest (wearing size S) // Sanctuary Sweater (c/o, wearing size M) // Good American Jeans (wearing size 4) // Franco Sarto Booties // Chanel Purse // Red Beanie // Ben-Amun x The Stripe Cuff // Karen Walker Sunglasses
I know it’s hard to see but this Sanctuary sweater is the coziest thing ever — and it’s under $100. I love that it has a v-neck… much more flattering than a crewneck for a chunky sweater!
