I love the idea of mixing pieces from different seasons. Since we had a rare day of 80-degree weather, I decided to take advantage of what is probably the last day this year that I'll be able to wear my summer dress and layered it up with a faux fur vest and suede ankle booties.
I was a bit unsure of this outfit when I put it on this morning and I'm a bit ambivalent about it now when I look at these pictures. One the one hand, I love the mixture of textures and seasonal pieces. On the other hand, I think I should've paired it with a slimmer dress instead as the poofy-ness of the skirt kinda clashes with the puffiness of the fur vest. Not to mention the fact that these boots come up at an awkward height on my calves... But either way, this outfit was fun to wear so let's just leave it at that. :)
The cold front actually rolled in just as I was taking these pictures too. Can you see the little goosebumps on my arms?
Oh, and don't forget about the JCPenney for Chictopia campaign! I have some trendsetter badges to award to be sure to leave a comment with your Chictopia outfit featuring a JCPenney item so that I don't miss it!
