Striped Turtleneck and Fur Vest

This outfit from a few weekends ago isn’t exactly what you’ll need for today’s weather, Pittsburghers. But, you might want to reach for it on Friday! We’re currently having some unseasonably warm weather for February, here in the city. It has been lovely. Monday and yesterday, I didn’t even need to wear tights and finally got to break out some skirts I’d been avoiding (I plan on sharing those looks with you guys next week).

Today’s post is perfect for those cold weather days where you want to look chic while feeling comfortable.

Specifically, these faux leather leggings have been a nice piece to pull out of my wardrobe hat. They add edge, yes, but they’re leggings. Ladies, I think we all share the same love for our leggings, especially on weekends. Adding to my “chic but comfortable” favorites, this striped turtleneck from J.Crew is making yet another appearance. If I’ve said it once, I’ve said it a hundred times, this turtleneck is a staple. It can be preppy, chic, minimal, feminine… it’s so versatile. You can really have a lot of fun with this one.

And, because I needed some extra warmth, I pulled out this fur vest. I honestly debate getting rid of this vest each season, because I don’t wear it enough to consider it necessary. Yet, each season I end up holding on to it for one more year. When I see outfits like this, I don’t know why I don’t wear it more: I really like this look: minimal, easy, chic. You know that’s what I’m all about.

How are your weeks going, girls? I’m honestly not sure how it’s already Wednesday–or how it’s already the end of February for that matter. Life has gotten so busy over the past few months; I’m fearing that the blogging may become less frequent, simply for the sake of my sanity–which makes me sad because I do love searching for new things to share with you guys. Blogging is a great outlet in many ways, but it is also a lot of work. I’ll leave you with this post I just recently read on why you should start a blog; I couldn’t agree more.
