Going West in the Shearling Vest

Linnea White

We're going west(ern) with this faux shearling vest - the perfect layering piece for this transitional autumn weather. Because vest weather is upon us.

Shearling lined vests will forever be fashionable, says I, because they're comfortable, versatile, and chic. Fashionable and functional, the right vest can be worn as an extra layer under a jacket, or by itself for a lighter layer. Find one that fits your frame, and wear it close to your heart. Try layering it with soft, flowy fabrics for contrast, like this boho pattern dress or a floral number, or wear it over denim and a sweater for a casual, daytime cozy look.

Another Fall necessity for every darling gal - the lace up bootie. These leather beauties by Madewell carry the lug sole with a more Victorian heel and shape, perfect for dressing up or dressing down.

And if you aren't wearing tassels yet this season, get on that train - and do it all while supporting locally made jewelry. New artisan in the shop, Pan & Tea, is killing the fiber tassel game, from necklaces to earrings, she's your gal.

How are you styling vests this season? Loving the tassel trend as much as us?

Friendsgiving Style |Dressing Up with Darling

Linnea White

Friendsgiving - the autumnal celebration of harvest and all things delicious with your dearest friends. It's Thanksgiving with a casual, cozy spirit. When thinking about any feast, I always reach for comfort (no belts, no tight waistbands, it's feasting time). This Sienna Sky printed dress is perfect for Fall, from the color to all the layering possibilities. I paired it with the coziest vest (already sold!) and the warm cognac leather of these J. Crew boots. The raw crystal jewelry by Owl Ridge Farmstead complimented the look perfectly. And, of course, I had to feature some of the amazing new products coming soon to the shop by Kitsune's Closet! The rich Noir Red nail polish is a hot color this season, and the brand new lipstick color, Mulberry, brings a rich, dark plum color to the ensemble.

Get inspired for your upcoming Friendsgiving fête, and stop by the shop to shop the look (and so much more!).
