These boots were made for walking...

So, I was looking at Nordstrom's site yesterday, and I noticed that they were having a clearance sale on shoes. I saw these BP. boots, and my mind began to wonder and daydream about going on a winter hike (in a snow covered woods), a weekend get-away at a cabin, skiing, a crackling fire, hanging-out with friends and family... and thus the inspiration for this post.

The Staples

I thought I would share a few favorite staples of mine -- the seamless cami from The Limited and the jersey tank from Old Navy. These items are a go-to in my wardrobe. Over the years, I have collected an assortment of colors, and it will be a sad day for me when they are no longer available. If you have been looking for a cami/tank, I would suggest giving these a try. [Note: I have found that if I wash them on cold (with Woolite) and air dry them, they retain their color (even the black).]

Faux Leopard Fur Jacket - 2 ways

My post today is about how to wear a piece of clothing -- a Faux Leopard Fur Jacket -- two ways. On the left, I paired the leopard jacket with a red top and ivory skinny jeans. To accent the tan color in the jacket, I paired it with the camel pumps. On the right, I went with all black -- skinny jeans, top, and knee high boots.

Citizens of Humanity Thompson Skinny Jeans sold @ Piperlime
Nine West Moveit Peep Toe Pump sold @ Nine West
Gallery Faux Leopard Fur Jacket sold @ Nordstrom
J Brand 11" Denim Legging sold @ Piperlime
Nine West Aggy Boot sold @ Nine West

I would like to acknowledge one of my favorite style blogs, What I Wore, for the inspiration for the outfit on the left, and Kate Moss for the outfit on the right.

To put this outfit together, I used Polyvore, a fashion community site, where you can style different outfits. It is a lot of fun, and there is a chance to win prizes. (I won Smartwater for a year and was a finalist in the "Be the Next Big Stylist" contest for Piperlime. Thank you Polyvore & Smartwater & Piperlime - what an honor!)

Also, I might suggest adding a necklace to the outfit. The black necklace paired with the red/ivory outfit to bring out the black leopard print. The red necklace for the black outfit to add a pop of color. I always like red paired with leopard.
