feather vest outfit

Well hello there new week and hello icy temperatures. Winter’s definitely upon us right now and with the first snow comes the struggle to turn out the warm and comfy bed in the morning and get ready for the day. While I’ve been successfully avoiding to step out into the bitter cold during the weekend, except for a quick stop at Sephora, I can hardly stay in my favorite sweatpants and comfy socks for the five coming days. So time to get dressed.

Preferably wearing a thick roll-neck sweater, chunky boots and a huge wrap-around scarf during winter, I challenged myself on Saturday for a more dressy look. That is a pair of jeans with holes ( do i even own a pair without?!) my sales-find booties and this grey fluffy vest with a pussy-bow blouse underneath. The Valentino Rockstud tote was also part of the game and this not only because it’s powdery pink goes so well with the rest of the look. I just find myself very drawn towards the bigger bags in my collection once the temperatures hit rock bottom. Thermos bottle, gloves, cashmere hat and hand-warmers are the essentials in my bag these days and these things sure need space. Nevertheless the Valentino even had some extra room for my itty bitty Sephora haul. So yeah, huge totes are my favorites right now.

PS: My sister thought that this feathery vest made me look like a little penguin and I guess I can live with that comparison because penguins are adorably cute,aren’t they?

    I always struggle to get dressed with this weather. One part of me want to be fashion, nice and chic, the other one needs to cover up to avoid being sick for the following month… I always had the feeling I resemble a Michelin man during the day – I have to walk to get to work – while during the night I can easily still go bare legs (holy cabs!). This outfit is a very nice option to be chic during the day without getting frozen :) I love the colors combination and the shoes!

      I totally get you, I find myself torn between the Michelin-look and the ,,I still want to look pretty”option each and every morning :) You’re pretty brave for going bare legs,wow, I guess I wouldn’t even make half a step outside haha :)
      And thanks for the nice words,I’m happy that you like the look as much as I do :)

    Yes, penguins are adorably cute. So are ostrich. But I don’t think they feel that cute when their feathers are pulled out of them while they are alive. Any open wounds resulting from this are sewn close with a needle, no anaesthesia. Every 6-7 months, over and over again.

      Hi Kristiana,
      Oh seriously??I didn’t know about that,thanks for letting me know. I’ll make sure to avoid these in the future then.
      I just learned about how fake fur is obviously dogs and cats fur and was pretty shocked as well.

      • Reply Kristiana January 19, 2016 at 12:25 pm

        Yeah, I’ve heard about that too, and it’s really scary. It kinda sucks, when nowadays you can make great fake furs that still look good :/

    What a great look. There’s elements of casual and then there’s European elegance. The black neck tie scream Karl Lagerfeld. Not to mention the booties are so cute. This is a great look on you.
