It’s hard to look fashionable when it is 16 degrees outside, and you just want to zip yourself into a sleeping bag and hop your way into work. Guilty.

But other times, you just can’t let winter win.

So in those situations, it’s time to pile on your most fashionable items and pull off your best winter luxury look. And that’s exactly what I did on this particular this day with my camel coat, faux fur stole/scarf, and cozy black earmuffs.

Katie: 1. Winter: 0.*

*Okay, this might be a bit skewed, but we’re going with it.

Fall Capsule #1: Fur Get About It

DSC088221DSC088231DSC088301DSC088271

The best/cheesiest thing I do all day is try to come up with post titles. Because I’m all about the puns, ’bout those puns, no treble (insert Meghan Trainor’s song, “All About the Bass” here), and there’s nothing I love more than a little word play action. Hope you can handle that if you’re new to the blog!

In other news, this outfit was pretty much ripped right off the back of the lovely See Jane (thanks Anna Jane!). See her original look here, and ask her where I can find an awesome stairwell to take photos in during this terrible cold and drizzly weather we’re having here in Indiana.

Good news? A faux fur scarf (scored on major sale last year, but there’s one below for under $15!) and a warm, cozy sweater help to beat the winter drizzle blues. Which I’m already having. Because I’m a big baby.

Fall Capsule #1: Black Top + Tan Skirt – Glam

DSC081471DSC081511DSC081451DSC081481DSC081421DSC081491

So yesterday’s look (here if you missed it) featured this same skirt and tee, but for a more classic look.

This time around, we’re putting a glam twist on it (aka Jennifer Lopez could wear this).

I was inspired by Jessica Alba’s look from Monday’s Target That Look post (here) to pull out my fur vest (reverses to a brown quilted vest). I’m one of those crazy people that love mixing brown and black (and blue and navy for that matter), and I took full advantage of that mixing here. The leopard print helps it all work together and adds a little bit of zest. Meeeeeooooowww.

I’d probably lean to the classic look as my favorite of the two, but it is always fun to step out of your comfort zone and try a different style. Which one is your favorite?

And would you rock a (faux) fur vest?
