A Touch of #Plaid & A #FauxFur

Just two of the many prints I adore for the fall and winter seasons!

#plaid#plaid1 I can easily transition this outfit from Sunday brunch to a night out in the town. Because the dress is sleeveless, my little faux fur jacket comes in handy. Instead of piling on the layers, this is all I need to stay warm and at the same time add a little glamour.#fauxfur7#fauxfur1#fauxfur2The suede pumps blend everything well together and gives me the extra height I’m always in need of.blackpumps#blackpumps#fauxfur(Dress, ATLoft, on sale now! | Faux Fur Cropped Jacket, old, H&M, similarPumps & Ring, Express | Earrings, old, J.

I’m so glad the #fauxfur thing is alive and happening, no pun intended. There was a time you wouldn’t dare to be seen with a fake anything let alone a fur coat! But today’s fashion standards have lapsed a bit, so no faux pas here. Hail to the #faux! It is all the rave and for good reason. The average girl just can’t go out and splurge on a mink at the toss of her tresses, hence the wannabe. But its all good, I like the idea of no animals getting hurt by my purchase…

Back to the outfit; the small detail of plaid on the dress makes it old school and classic, sans a string of fresh water pearls (I thought it would be a bit much on top). The faux fur is totally chic and modern. Together I’ve created a very simple and elegant look.

What’s your take on faux fur?
