Faux Leather and Faux Fur

Happy Monday my friends.  I hope everyone had a great weekend.  Mine was good, up until Sunday afternoon when we were on our way to shoot these photos, and ended up getting a flat tire.  Luckily we realized our tire was flat before we left our neighborhood, so I was able to take the twins home while Mike got the spare on the car.  However, by the time the car was drivable, it was too dark to shoot photos, which is why this post is coming late in the day.  Thankfully, I have an amazing husband who used his lunch break today to play photographer, and didn't complain about it one bit.

You may recognize this faux fur vest from Friday's post.  I love the statement that a fur vest adds to any outfit, and how versatile wearing one can be.  On Friday I showed you a casual look, and how this fur vest easily took my everyday jeans and booties up a stylish notch.  Today I'm showing you how to style it for a date night out, or drinks with the girls.  Because the vest is such a statement piece on it's own, I wanted to keep the rest of my outfit simple, so I chose to wear all black.  I paired it with my faux leather pants for a little edge, and dressed up my look with my studded heels.  Although I love the idea of wearing pink or red for a Valentines dinner date, I have a feeling this is what I would end up wearing!

  12. I love this monochromatic look and how it screams power and sass. Just a few weeks ago I was wearing a similar outfit and my 7 year old said, "those are rock start pants and you are a teacher, not a rock star" and I thought, "why can't I be both". You look fantastic!

  13. Loving this whole look! That faux fur vest is a-maz-ing! You look great!
