On my one shopping trip after Christmas it seems like I hit up all the stores at the factory outlet mall near us. As soon as I walked into Banana Republic this faux fur collar cardigan was displayed right by the door. I didn’t have eyes for anything else once I saw it and as I made my way around the store, I knew exactly where I would be heading back. Unfortunately they only had this available in a large. As I went to try it on I wasn’t deterred and reasoned since it had a belt I could cinch in the waistline for a more defined fit. Well, it is still larger than I would ultimately care for, so I may see if I can have it altered or try wearing it open instead. I love its glam, old Hollywood vibe and will find a way to make it work!
Originally I was planning to wear my white Barcelona cami with this, but since it was in the laundry I pulled out my white Portofino instead. The cami would have given me cleaner lines (especially at the neckline), but in a pinch the Portofino worked for the classic look I desired. Slim black ankle pants, my favorite leopard pumps, and quilted bag completed the chic look perfectly. The faux fur and leopard certainly prevent these basic neutrals from being boring!

I have a couple of more photo shoots to get through posting here on the blog before I can debut my new hair here. So hopefully hopefully next week!

My favorite post from last week was Karen’s of Lady in Violet. Not only do I love this color combination, but I also enjoyed her post on how to wear over the knee boots when you’re short. Now head on over to Amy’s blog and see who she is featuring as her favorite!
