Fur & Bordeaux

Hi loves! We’re halfway through the week and am I the only one who feels abnormally exhausted? I’m talking heavy eyes and sluggish movements, I hope I’m not the only one who feels this way. I think after having a four day weekend, it’s going to take a little while to get back into my normal routine. 
I actually wore this look on Saturday to do a little shopping with my family. I kind of felt overdressed, but I’ve been really wanting to wear my faux fur stole, (one of my birthday gifts from J) and I love how it worked with the printed maxi (seen here) and Bordeaux turtleneck (seen here), underneath my trusty leather moto jacket (also seen here). It was a funky yet edgy look for me and I loved it. What do you think about this look? 
Style Guide: When wearing a printed maxi that is in a different color than your top, throw on a nude skinny belt to pull the look together and give it balance!
Linking up with The Pleated Poppy, Rolled Up Pretty, Because Shanna Said So, and Transatlantic Blonde today!

THE LOOK: | Leather Moto Jacket: Target (Very old) (similar here)| Faux Fur Stole (love this option) & Ankle Booties (another cute option) : Birthday gifts from my Fiance | Cowl turtleneck & Belt: H&M | Maxi Skirt: Gap (great fall option) | Bracelet: Target | Purse: Vintage Dooney & Bourke- my Mommy’s |

Thanks so much for continuing to take the time to read, comment, and follow my blog! It doesn’t go unnoticed and I am so thankful to have all of you along for the ride, have a fabulous day!

    Your outfit is fabulous! Love your skirt. I think it's a good idea to dress up when you go shopping. In fact, I was just talking to someone about how differently the people working in the stores treat me when I am dressed up as opposed to when I am not, but that's a whole other topic.

    You look wonderful.
