Casual Chic… Style in the Snow

What I’m Wearing…

* Gray sweater with heart elbows from Asos a few years ago, still a fave basic
* Le Skinny Jeans by BLANK DENIM, another fave… I almost want to get a second pair but worry as soon as I do, I’ll stop wearing them, lol.
* Oversized wrap/scarf from eBay… also seen here
* Teal coat with leather lapel & details by BB Dakota {from a few years ago}
* Furry hat by Bop Basics {also from a few years ago}
* Oversized ‘Vara’ sunglasses by Ferragamo
* Balenciaga classic town bag
* Furry tassel boots by Tory Burch… and yet another example of me assuming everything is faux fur these days and not reading the details online before buying. I couldn’t send them back once I got them though :/ Don’t pour red paint on me please.

This outfit or a version of this outfit has quickly become my winter uniform… and it’s not even technically winter yet -well I suppose TODAY is actually the beginning {but it’s COLD AF and we’ve already had more snow this year than last!}. I tweeted about wearing these boots, via my snaps, which are now on sale LUCKY YOU and have worn them with numerous jeans and sweaters since… which you have seen if you follow my snaps!

December has been one of my busiest months this year and FINALLY this week feels like it’s slowing down a bit, which is obviously, so nice. I love the work, but I love the time and space in between it as well and since Christmas is at the end of the week, I’m trying to allow myself to be even more relaxed about work this week and take it nice and slow. My type A-busy-mind though occasionally wins simply because getting up and “doing” is the only way to shut it up, and so I do. But the goal is to relax and enjoy and you should allow yourself to do so as well, if you can, because HOLIDAY…CELEBRATE!

    Maegan to say that you made a mistake while buying the boots (not for the first time either – remember the beanies: https://lovemaegan.com/2015/02/i-cant-control-my-fingers-i-cant-control-my-brain.html) while straight away stating the said same boots are on sale “lucky you!” is hypocritical to the extreme. You either support the industry or you don’t.

    It is the ‘fashion’ of fur – fake or not – that creates demand. Your business is fashion and people buy what you like and recommend and if you want to recommend fur, then you go ahead and do that but please, this is not the first ‘oops’ you’ve claimed. You wield a lot of influence with this blog, so please either be more conscientious of your power to inform and direct choices, or don’t pretend to be an animal activist.

    Just my 2 cents.

      It’s true, I have made the same mistake in the past, that’s why I mentioned that it happened to me again… and I’m wearing the hat in this post as well.

      I’m not a vegan or vegetarian and I don’t claim to be an activist, but I do generally stay away from buying real fur whenever possible, though I buy vintage fur without hesitation -because that’s different, in my opinion, but yes, I am promoting it by wearing it… and I’m on the fence about it every time. We all seem to have no problem wearing leather {except true vegans -which I am not, I eat meat}, which comes from animals as well, but fur gets everyone up in arms, and I get it, I generally avoid buying “real fur” whenever possible, but the truth here is that I assumed they were faux fur, even when I got them and tried them on, I still thought they were faux… so that was definitely a stupid mistake, but again, I don’t claim to be an activist, but I do mostly avoid purchasing and promoting it because it saddens me… again though, leather goods, cowhide rugs, etc., seem to all get a pass simply because they’re cows and we eat them as well, that’s all I can guess… but it’s a matter I do think about often and waver back and forth over.

    You don’t have to be an activist to silently do your part to defend animals. This is why I have so much admiration for Stella McCartney. She has been incredibly successful in the business of fashion while still maintaining her high standard of personal beliefs.

    P.S. I love your blog Maegan and just want to add my two cents to this important issue.

    Thanks for the heads up Maegan on the boots, I prefer not to wear real fur nor real leather, my choice. x
