Plaid & Fur

by - Wednesday, March 27, 2013

Today's casual outfit is heavily inspired by this Pinterest photo. The fur vest, plaid shirt, and ripped jeans make me feel like I'm all set for a day in the outdoors. Alas, I sat behind a desk instead.

Hope you had a good day!

  1. Love the fur and plaid combo! Great look. :) I might have to try this!!

    xo – Sheila
    Find me on BlogLovin!

  2. I have been following your blog for years, and every time I see these jeans I want to purchase them! They always look so great on you! And I know you get a ton of use out of them.

    I don't have a Hollister near me and they don't do free returns, which is why I keep hesitating..

    I think we might be near the same size? I'm 5'-5", 110 lbs - I know it's weird to talk about height/weight/sizing, so I totally understand if this is an awkward question, but do you mind sharing what size those are? I've never worn Hollister and have heard they run really small!

    Anyways, love everything you do! I wish I could clone your wardrobe for myself. :) xoxo

    1. Ahh, wish I could edit this, anyways, I think I'm probably bigger than you, normally wear a 0, but I've never bought petite and never have fit into a 00.

    2. Hey Bethany! Of course I don't mind. I'm half an inch shorter than you and a few pounds lighter, and I'm wearing size 3R in these Hollister jeans. I typically take 00/24 pants in stores like LOFT (petite pants are too short for me). I also have a flat butt, so that's why I wear juniors pants, lol. I'd say a 5R in Hollister should work for you, but as always, jeans are so hard to judge without trying them on. Do let me know if you give them a shot!

    3. Thanks Cee!! I was thinking 3R, but I am a 25, so I think 5R would be a better fit - that is super helpful! I will let you know how it goes. :) Thanks again!!

  3. I love your outfit. I have the same pieces and never thought about wearing it together. Since I have found your blog I have been experimenting. Also I like your Loft jeans so I picked up a pair too.

    1. I'm so glad to hear, Sue! I feel like I go through cycles with my experimenting... I can go weeks where most outfits are slightly cringe-worthy, but then there are also stretches where the experiments pay off. So don't give up even if you hit a rough patch!

      I also couldn't resist the LOFT 40% off sale and ordered white jeans to try. I figured given my past luck with LOFT jeans, the odds of them working out should be in my favor, haha. Would love to hear your thoughts on your pair once you try them on.

  4. I adore the way that you styled the fur vest! I would have never guessed that it wasn't an adult piece. What size are you wearing? I like some of the Zara girls pieces but hesitate to purchase them due to sizing questions that I don't know how to answer. :)

    1. Hey Chloe! I'm wearing a size L in the fur vest. I have a photo of the vest in a different print from last year where I compared L vs XL. The great thing about Zara is the free shipping and returns, so don't hesitate to order extra sizes to try. Hope that helps!

    2. Thanks! That is very helpful. : )


I'd love to hear from you. Constructive criticisms welcome!
