Layered Outerwear

Fur vest - DIY'd from thrifted coat
Moto-jacket - thrifted
Tee - gift
Jeans - One star, thrifted
Boots - Fly London

Pinterest is full of so much inspiration. From food to style to interior design, I'm constantly pinning new things. This look was inspired by a pin of a girl who had layered a fur vest over a moto jacket. I don't know how well this translated, but I was toasty warm as I had lunch with my in-laws. See that satisfied smile? That's banana-pudding tummy. One thing I'll miss if I ever move from the South is the food.

These boots haven't seen the light of day since February 23, 2011. I was initially in love with them for their small calf circumference, rocker details, and low heel. And a year later, the love affair has waned. Their color makes me struggle - it can't decide if it's grey or a weird taupe-brown. The ankle isn't flattering, and the lack of full zipper inspires so much rage. I think they're up on the chopping block.

Have you tried layering your outerwear? Leave a link here - I'd love to see.

  1. I haven't tried layering outerwear yet, but this outfit really makes me want a fur vest to layer over my leather jacket!

  2. Any layering I've ever done hasn't been in attractive way - usually it's adding a fleece or a vest under my coat. I like what you've done here, makes outerwear less boring!

  3. Love the DIY vest. Still searching for the perfect one. This is such a cool idea layering outerwear and perfect when its cold. So jealous you had banana pudding! Kayla made some not too long ago and it didn't even last a day!

  4. Oh no! Don't do it! Those boots are awesome! I have been addicted to Pintrest. Addicted in an obsessive and borderline unhealthy way (especially with wedding stuff). I LOVE your layered look and I hope you don't mind if I borrow it soon!

  5. Oh, I adore the DIY you did on the fur jacket to make it a vest. I really like the boots too - are you interested in selling? Are you a teeny tiny shoe size? : >

  7. I've tried it, but it wasn't pretty. You look great in your layers. I see what you mean about the boots, they are a bit different in color. On my monitor they look kind of khaki green. Also, if they irritate you, it is best to be rid of them.

  10. I have yet to layer outerwear. But I don't have a furry vest. Yet.:) I love this look! I agree with you on the boots. You have better to choose from in your closet.

  12. Awesome idea to DIY a vest! Like your boots, I have a few pieces that I struggle with because they are a weird in-between color.
