Although I’m not a huge fan of cold weather, I do look forward to wearing faux-fur vests. They are great for giving any outfit a chic flare. I originally purchased this Jolt Faux-Fur Open Sleeveless Vest last Fall from Julie’s Boutique in North Carolina. Since this vest is a year old and is no longer sold, I have found a few near-identical vests from Nordstrom Rack here, here, and here.
I styled my faux-fur vest with a simple lightweight black turtleneck from H&M (size small) and a pair of high-waisted skinny jeans also from H&M (size 24). When I wear any type of faux-fur vests, I like to wear a lightweight long sleeve top underneath so I won’t run the risk of overheating. Faux-fur can get pretty toasty sometimes and that’s why it’s great to wear on super cold days. To complete my look I wore my favorite Steve Madden mules. These mules are so comfortable I basically live in them!
The other great thing about this outfit was being able to transition it from work to dinner. On Friday’s my office has a more casual dress code and the restaurant I went to with my parents also had a casual vibe. In case you are ever in Philly and looking for a good Asian-fusion restaurant, I highly recommend SAMPAN. Everything is served tapas style so you are given the opportunity to try a bunch of different foods. I recommend the Edamame Dumplings or the Kung Pao Chicken Wings. So good!
