I Look Like A Garden Gnome

faux fur vest-winter outfit

What I’m Wearing…

* Faux Fur Vest by Free People from last season
* Green plaid flannel shirt from Asos
* Le Skinny jeans by FRAME Denim
* Furry hat from Shopbop last year… also, I need new hats/beanies, like bad.
* Chloe Belladone sunglasses in gray {old}
* Boots are Crocs from last year… but I just got a box full of new ones to try out, which makes my feet & ankle so happy.

I wear this vest out nearly every time I leave the house… and I can’t help it. It’s just on the verge of freezing here so rather than wear a full coat always, I tend to layer up on thermals and flannels and sweaters and just throw this vest on over whatever was last to go on. So nearly every day I wear it. I’m wearing it right now as I type this and it’s 11pm, I’m indoors, at my desk, with a plug-in heater on my legs. Sure we had a fire earlier and the heater set at whatever my husband thinks is the proper house temperature, but I could honestly always be warmer.

I wore this to walk to the village the other day, {or last weekend actually} so obviously A. I needed layers for warmth, and B. I needed my crocs to keep my feet and ankle from shooting me in the face. I am eternally grateful for my Crocs really, since the doctor prescribed absolutely nothing for me to do to fix my ankle, Crocs are my feet’s best friend. Yeah, I said feets.

So beyond all this blabbing, I think I need more vests because this one is getting worn-out… well, not really, I’m just getting embarrassed wearing it so often. Also, these jeans. Always.

    BUT such a CUTE garden gnome! 🙂 I’m all for the layering of flannel and vests and all that. I’m a huge fan of down vests right now. I seriously wear one every other day at the least. I love cold weather!

    Much Love,

    Love that green plaid shirt! And, of course, your entire outfit! Beautiful gnome, for sure! (Hey, it wouldn’t be a bad idea to replicate you and your look into a real garden gnome!)

    p.s. There could be a few artists, sculpture-ists, etc. in your area who can make a Love Maegan gnome, wearing your entire outfit…………Just a thought!

    This vest is gorgeous! One of my favorite things about my job in a creative agency is that we have a very casual dress code. Now that the temperature is dropping i’ve been wanting to wear my flannels to work but I always felt a little too dressed down. Adding a cute vest like this would absolutely take it from saturday morning to work acceptable!!

    As always, thanks for sharing Maegan! Love your posts!
