Style Collaboration: Faux Fur Vest

March 5, 2015

fauxfurvestcollabToday I am excited to bring back another style collaboration post (see my holiday wear collaboration here, and mustard cardigan one here), this time with Grace of colorandgrace.com and we will be showing you how we styled our white faux fur vests for the spring weather coming.

I have known Grace for only a short period of time but I had originally started following her on Instagram but liked her style so much I just had to follow her blog and things have been great since. Grace blogs on outfits and her past travels and adventures everyday (even on the weekends). This girl is dedicated to her blog, fashion and her readers.

Today she has styled a great street or work wear outfit appropriate for spring. Although her vest has a touch of black at the bottom I just love how she incorporates little touches of black in her heels as well.  I also love how she incorporates the trendy marsala (burgundy) color through her lovely pants, and chambray with just the right amount of sparkle through her accessories as well. To view more on her vest and meet her go here.
IMG_0005I choose to style my white faux fur vest with a vintage floral boho blouse of mine (I mean vintage shirt in that this thing has been in my wardrobe for almost 8 years or more, and I still wear it each season). I topped off the look with white cropped pants and blue suede flats.

IMG_0009If you haven’t already read it before then you will know now. I LOVE wearing BLUE and will be incorporating more blue throughout my spring and summer wardrobe for sure, so of course this had to be a staple color with the vest, especially with spring around the corner.
IMG_0013The right amount of sparkle in the jewelry adds some fun and flirty elements to the vest, giving off an extra oomph of sparkle and light.

IMG_0017Don’t you just love photo bombs- that cone just ruins these pictures. But my hubby who took these pictures didn’t factor in the obvious, haha! God rest his soul!

Ways I have worn this same vest before are here and here for the winter season.

Fun fact: I now own a Cannon Rebel T5 EOS 1200D DSLR camera (used to take these photos). My hubby and I saved money in an envelope for this very camera since before Christmas and I ended up getting a HUGE package deal off of amazon for this Camera, tripod, lenses, filters, mini-tripod, strap, carry bag and more for only less than $500 on sale- It WAS WORTH IT! Any tips you might have on how to use this intimidating camera would be helpful!

    Great outfit! I always feel like I look like a total dork when I try on one of those fur vests… but yours looks great! Maybe I’ll have to give them another try.
    Look me up for some style collaboration any time!

    Fun post! Love the white faux fur. Mine is the most natural looking type, but I always love the white when I see it on other bloggers.

    I love this vest of yours and how you styled it with a pretty blue and white look!

  • Carrie @ Curly Crafty Mom March 7, 2015 at 1:11 am

    You are going to LOVE your new Canon Rebel!!! I have had one for… awhile… it is maybe over 5 years old? It still works AWESOME! They are really a lifetime investment in my opinion… I did break the lens on it after 3 yrs. Autumn kicked it when I was holding her… a real bummer, but I got a nicer lens for it over the factory one it came with and it actually worked out good! I have never seen this other blogger I need to go check out her blog and IG! You both look great in your white fur vests! I so need a fur vest eventually, not sure what color I’d want it in!

    Happy, happy Friday! You are going to love that camera girl!

  • Dawn Lucy March 7, 2015 at 11:48 am

    You both look lovely! Grace is fab and I love your cool look too, Rachel. One of my favs on you! Blue really is your color, Girl! Trying not to over-schedule but maybe we can do a collab this summer! (Teachers love summer!) That would be super fun!

    I really like how you paired the vest with the white and blue! I think this is a great way to transition a fur vest to spring. So pretty!
