The Trend I Never Thought I’d Love

Chelsea28 Faux Fur Vest

Faux fur. We’ve talked about it before in this post, but when faux fur first came onto the scene, I thought I would never jump on board. And then I laid eyes on this Chelsea28 vest. And the rest, is fashion history.

I love that this vest isn’t too bulky, so if you’re looking to try the trend, this is a good option. And it’s soooo soft. A little note on the sizing of this vest. I chose the x-small; however, I also tried on the small and thought there wasn’t a big difference between the two sizes.

I am so relieved that this week is almost over. I woke up thinking yesterday was Tuesday, only to realize that it was Wednesday, and that I didn’t have a blog post up. I’m heading to a young professionals networking event after work, and the theme is an ugly sweater Christmas party. I think it will be a great way to unwind after a long, exhausting weekend. Anyone who knows how to bounce back after break, I’d love to hear your secrets. This girl has been riding the struggle bus for sure.

    I’m glad I’m not the only one riding the struggle bus this week! But I’m sure glad not to be riding the struggle bus and preparing for final exams, so I guess that’s one perk of post-grad life!

      Definitely a major perk. So glad I’m not worrying about finals and papers right now. Hope your weekend allows you to recover. Thanks, Rebecca!

    Wow, I really love it on you! I bought a faux fur scarf last year and still haven’t worn it, I find it a little intimidating to be honest.
