It has been freezing here the past couple of days! And when I say freezing, I mean about 50 degrees (yes, I'm fully aware that as a socal girl, I'm extremely spoiled and the least bit of cold makes me turn into a total baby).

I threw this on and although I love my Missoni for Target scarf, I needed something more for warmth.

Time to bust out the fur! Faux of course, because I would never wear the real thing.

(Minus the)  fur vest and slouchy white top - Express,  Jeggings - Banana Republic,  Boots - BP "Runway" Nordstrom, Earrings - F21, Bag - MNG Mango JCPenney, Nails - Essie Cocktail Bling, Engagement Ring
I also added a rose gold watch and my Tiffany's bracelet after I took these pics

I never thought I would like a fur vest on myself, but my horizons have expanded partly because of reading blogs and partly because of Rachel Zoe. Who doesn't want to emmulate their fashion icons? The key is finding something that works for you, and not trying to look like a carbon copy of someone else. The fact that I made it through the weekend without taking the vest off is a sign that I made a wise choice in buying it. I also stayed very warm. I lit some candles, sipped on a peppermint mocha, curled up with my honey, and watched re-runs of The Rachel Zoe Project. He likes Rachel too :)

  1. Nice outfit! Love it!

    I'm the same as you, 50 degrees is waaayyy to low for me!

  2. I totally know what you mean about Faux fur, it's something I didn't think I'd wear a few years ago and now I love it and you're so right, I'm in Nor Cal and it's extra cold so you guys must be freezing. Have a good night, you look great in this and your missoni for target scarf too.

  3. The fur vest. I contemplated whether or not I should purchase on ea few weeks ago...and now i'm hitting myself. Such a simple and chic look :) Hope you had a great weekend! xo, tasha

  4. At first I wasn't sure how I felt about faux fur vests but I've been seeing them on everyone these days and now I kind of want one! I like all the shades of brown in this outfit :)

    xo, alison*elle

  5. I love the boots & purse - I just sent the link to my husband (hint, hint!) =)

  6. Wow - that fur vest is the perfect finishing touch to your outfit...since I read your post I've started noticing fur vests EVERYWHERE lol...I think it's a sign that I need to get one soon!

  7. LOVE the faux fur vest! Express seems to be the place to buy one! It looks great on you!! :)

  8. I love this outfit. It's so simple yet chic. Love the faux fur vest :)

  9. I am in love with your pants.. I've been thinking of adding a pop of color to my wardrobe with colored pants

  10. I do like Rachel Zoe. Fabulous vest.


  11. You look so luxe in that outfit! It definitely looks like your style, not RZ's, so you succeeded in making it your own for sure!! xo

  12. I've been dying for a fur rest! Can't find one I love, but yours is so cute!!!

  13. You look fab in this outfit Noelle! Love the vest, great buy!

  14. Ahh, Noelle this is gorgeous! I wish that I could wear a fur vest, but I feel like I'd stick out too much here. I've already had to tone down my style since coming to a big university :/. I really love that you paired this with a slouchy sort of top it gives it a different feel, and I usually see fur vests paired with tighter tops. Your boots look great as well, I love that color leather!

  15. I understand your pain with the colder weather! When I lived in TX I was the same way! I still am!
