Shearling makes me happy!

            In the fall and winter it can be difficult to stay warm and look fashionable.  This is where a coat, vest, or jacket can make a big difference in your look and keep you cozy.  Faux fur vests and shearling are currently all the rage.  Shearling mixes a couple of hot trends right now:  the nordic look and outdoorsy chic.  At this time of year I do not recommend any one go bare-legged like this cute model above.  But I do like the mix of the striped shirt (would be great in black or navy stripe), then the shearling and leather accessories.  The outfit above would be great paired with slim black pants or jeans.  I found some great looks on a couple of sites.  Some budget friendly, some not so much!   

This beautiful, real shearling vest hails from Boden, in their Limited collection for $518.00, Shearling Gilet.

This gorgeous little number from Boden, the Snuggly Shearling Jacket retails for $774.00.

For a similar look for a little less cost...

consider your faux options!

     This coat from Nordstrom is  $118., Bernando Faux Shearling. This is a fantastic statement piece for the price.

 If you are petite and can wear a juniors size, try this Jou Jou Faux Shearling vest for $44.00 from Nordstrom.

Here is another Boden top, at $138., the Winter Warmer.  I have seen a lot of 15% and 20% off Boden offers with free shipping by email and catalog.  Check it out.  There are some good deals to be had!

Stay warm!


  1. This is a fabulous idea. I have so many things in my closet that are lonely and need to be fixed up with other lonely items. I keep the high quality items, hoping to find a way to use them. I look forward to further posts!

  2. Me likely! Very cute.... I am feeling the need to go shopping!
