Faux Fur Vest + WW Link Up

Happy Friday my friends.  I feel like this week has been a long one, yet it's gone by quickly.  Does that even make any since?  Those who follow me on social media may have noticed that I've been a little absent from Snapchat and Insta Stories this week.  I ended up getting a laser treatment (IPL) on my face this past Monday, and have looked like a hot mess.  I did give a little update on my Insta Stories yesterday, so you may still be able to catch it.  I've had a few people ask me about the process, so I'm thinking about doing a post on the procedure in the near future.  Anyway, now that I'm looking a little less scary, I'll hopefully be back to my normal snapping soon (Rach480). 

In other news, can we talk about how much I'm loving this faux fur vest?  I wasn't sure if the shag style fur was for me, but the second I put it on, I was sold.  It adds the perfect amount of edge to an outfit, while adding a layer of warmth.  A double plus in my book.   I decided to go for a casual, and  slightly boho, look by pairing it with a flowy blouse, distressed jeans, and booties.  My blouse is a few years old, and still one of my favorites.  I love that it works for pretty much any occasion, from a music festival with denim cut-offs, to the office with a pencil skirt and jacket, or with skinny jeans and pumps for a night out on the town.  Although my blouse is no longer available, I've rounded up some great, similar styles below.
