Versatility, Mixing + Matching // Faux Fur Jacket + Ruffle Sleeve Top

I’m guilty of being a chronic over-wearer (not sure if that’s even a word) of entire outfits. If I don’t plan on seeing the same people, two consecutive days in a row, then no one knows, right (well, actually, that’s not entirely true…. sometimes I don’t really care if I am seeing the same people…)? You see, when I find something I love, I just can’t let it sit in the closet for too long…. that’s why I follow one simple rule. If its worn the tags for over 3 weeks then it goes back. Period. Things I love have a way of working themselves into regular rotation quickly. Example? Pretty much every piece here. The jacket was purchased on a whim… “I’ll see if I like it,” kind of buy. The next day, I wore it. This ruffle top? Bought it on a Thursday, wore it Saturday…. and then a few consecutive days after that. These mules? Well, if you’re not tired of seeing them yet, I’m glad…. because I own them in two colors.

I guess it just speaks to their individual versatility…. perfect pieces to mix and match… or, perfect pieces to dress up and down. I wore this outfit on my birthday, when TJ and I headed up to LA for the night. It was a dressier occasion, and the jacket added just the right touch. Then…. two weeks later, I wore all these pieces on our trip up to Los Olivos…. I mean, they were the most comfortable pieces to keep me cozy while doing a little pinot sipping (and the jacket kept me so warm… it was freezing that weekend)….

A few other items that make it into heavy rotation, and pair with each of these items here, include this cozy pullover (which is currently on sale… perfect layer under the jacket), my favorite camo jacket (you’d be surprised how much goes with the print… and a fun option to top off the ruffle top), cold shoulder tee (alone with the jeans and mules… or layered under the jacket too… currently on sale),  and my favorite thermal top (paired under the jacket, or alone with the jeans and mules…. I am currently loving it in the taupe and black).
