Fur sure

Another cold snowy day yesterday called for a faux fur vest.  Well, I don't know if this is a vest or a little jacket, but either way, it felt appropriate for the weather.  Of course I had a co-worker teasing me "is that sheep or llama? Did you steal it from the Michael Jackson ranch?"  It was all in good fun, he and I have a good working relationship, he actually filled in for me a bit while I was on my maternity leave in fact.

Every time I wear these pants I say I'm going to be done with them - they're so old and one of the pockets has a hole in it.  But you can't see the hole and I just can't seem to quit these pants I guess!  I am so tired of pants - been back at work two weeks and no skirts yet.  I hear the mercury is going above freezing this week though - so I just might pull a skirt out yet!

I had a gift card to Target thanks to singing for a funeral vigil, so I treated myself to this cute little bag - I know I have a problem, I never said I didn't - but was also able to get a couple of little things for Oliver too. And a sweatshirt or two for myself because they were way on sale.  I might attempt a DIY project with one of them, you never know!

Sweater - Ruff Hewn, consignment
Vest/jacket - Swap
Pants - Maurices, very old
Shoes - Mudd, Kohls
Purse - Merona, Target
Necklace - Bead for Life 

Still got the shaggy hair going on.  My hope is to get a haircut before Oliver's baptism on Sunday.  It will happen!  It's funny the things you really struggle to find time for when you have a baby!


  1. What a cute faux fur vest...I love that it has cap sleeves! It's going to warm up here this week too (allegedly, ha) so I'm also dying to wear a skirt/dress.

  2. I love the jacket!!! I had a cute fur gilet and then in a fit of madness, gave it away last year, in fact 2,of them! Darn!!!

    You look lively, I like your hair longer! X

  3. THAT jacket is adorable!!! I so adore those cap sleeves, Beth!

  4. So snuggly! Does Oliver like it? I can imagine once he's a bit older, he's going to love petting it, like a cat that won't run away from him!

  5. I can see why you don't want to get rid of the trousers! They have a lovely pattern and the fit looks like a cool boot cut.

    Killer crop jacket! I like that it looks neat over a long sleeved tee or would be nice on a dress or over a skirt, as well.


Thanks for stopping by and saying hello! It makes my day to hear from you!
