I can’t believe we’re already halfway through December and Christmas is less than 10 days away! It doesn’t feel like Christmas to me even though I see Christmas-y posts on social media nonstop. I think because I’ve been so busy and tired that I haven’t had the time to really enjoy it. But hopefully, this last week before the big day I’ll have time to slow down and take it all in.
But on to today’s post. Faux fur vests are everywhere these days and I’d been on the lookout for one I liked that was reasonably priced when I saw this dark blue drawstring vest a few months back. I really liked that it had a drawstring and was long enough to wear with leggings as you don’t often see those 2 qualities in a faux fur vest. What really sold me on this Vince Camuto vest is that it retails for $320 and I got it on sale for $79!

I was going to wear a solid colored long sleeve tee underneath this vest, but I couldn’t figure out exactly what I wanted so I opted for the light purple and white lace tee instead. It doesn’t look as cohesive as I think it would’ve with a solid long sleeve, but I still like it and I think the purple works with the dark blue.
The faux fur is so incredibly soft and the best thing – it has pockets! It’s really warm, although when it’s really cold out it probably wouldn’t be a good idea to wear since it’d leave my arms vulnerable. But on the milder days it’s definitely a warm, stylish piece to wear! The drawstring waist is definitely a different look than I’m used to seeing in faux fur vests. I’m loving the more waist defined look with this vest and am happy I got it for such a great price!
