stripes & fur

Today I’m mixing it up with stripes and a faux fur vest…loving the contrast between “traditional” and funky! These are pieces I’ve had in my wardrobe for years but they still work. A stripe slouchy turtleneck will never steer you wrong–look for different color combinations to update the look. I saw a perfect light gray furry type sweater vest at Festoon this past weekend…it would give you a similar look but a longer line which would be very flattering. They only had one that I saw so get there quick!

I still love my distressed jeans. These are faded, distressed and above the ankle–tripe score! These types of jean are perfect for highlighting a great pair of shoes or boots. The ones I have on today are olive suede and are so comfortable. I wish I could spring for another pair in black because I don’t think this style will ever go out so they would be a good investment piece.

I added my favorite Mio Studio earrings–these are a classic and I truly love them! Paired up with a green crossbody saddlebag this outfit is ready to get me through work but would also be a great weekend day look for running errands.

It’s going to be a wonderfully warm weekend in Lancaster so I hope to see you out and about…I will be running around trying to snatch up some great finds for my family this holiday season. I am so behind! Enjoy



So today is the first day of Spring! I am looking forward to tulips, birds waking me up in the morning and warm sun. But, today, the forecast is snow. I’m hoping if we are going to get this that it is the slushy, goes away by tonight kind of snow! “Spring Snow” I think I’ve heard it called.

I had planned for a dress today but instead I’m layered up to keep warm. This vintage sweater is one I’ve had for seasons. I love that the colors are not your typical argyle combination. It pairs perfectly with one of my favorite t-shirts and a cotton striped scarf. Instead of just tucking in my skinny jeans I decided to cuff them today for a little different look. This look would also look great with a funky pair of flats. I’ve worn these boots in numerous posts and continue to love them. They also work great with skirts and dresses so you will see them again! For an added pop of color I’m including my red leather tote.
