I hope you had a great weekend!  It was a little chilly and gloomy here, but I can't complain since it was nothing compared to what my friends are experiencing in other parts of the country.  

Do you ever have outfits that come together by accident?  This is an example of one of those outfits for me.  I rediscovered this faux fur vest in my closet and threw it one over my jacket on the way out the door since I wanted a little extra warmth.  I fully intended to switch the vest to wear under the jacket later.  However, I ended up liking up so much I kept the vest over the jacket.

Just a warning, when I took off my vest and jacket, I almost forget my vest at the bar since  don't normally layer the two.  Don't be forgetful like me!

Thanks for reading and have a great day!
