Not a Poet (See Jane Wear)

Gap cords + turtleneck, BB Dakota vest, necklace c/o Spike the Punch,  Karen Walker sunglasses, Enzo Angiolini boots, Zara socks, LV neverfull
...And I'm actually not wearing all black here; my pants, that don't seem to photograph well (I've tried to toy with the colors so you can actually see them!), are actually a dark burgundy/purple (worn here).  Anyway, it's been quite brisk in Chicago the past few days and I made the mistake of wearing lightweight fabrics the day before.  Yesterday, I deemed it necessary to pull all the stops: cords, turtleneck and fur (I think my co-workers are sick of seeing this vest).  My recipe must've worked because it kept the chill away and I wasn't shivering during my commute to work.

Oh I love it and I'm crazy about that necklace! I don't think it would have been that weird if the pants HAD been black. Did you wear a jacket on top?!

Your messy ponytail looks so good! Love this entire look and that vest is the one I've been eyeing!

Tiffany Elam said...

Great outfit!! Ugh, I want your purse. It's been on my must have list for far too long. I did notice Michael Kors has a similar one that I may have to settle for to fill this LV void...

LOVE your vest! I just bought a similar one from New York & Company and have yet to wear it because I have no idea HOW to! It's got to get warmer in NJ before I can wear it with a simple outfit though.

I love the touch of fur! I'm actually in Chicago right now for a conference and spent part of last night wandering around the Magnificent Mile area and it was definitely chilly.

Very pretty! It's so cold in Tampa today (35*) and I also chose cords and layering a cardigan over a cowl neck sweater. I love the fur but don't know how functional it would be to own in FL. I wish, though!

I visited Chicago for the first time this week and the weather was crazy cold! You're probably used to being outside without a coat! But I love this outfit.
