Monochromatic Brown: Fur & Tweed

It was gorgeous out yesterday, but cloudy and rainy today.  I wore this to lunch with a friend and to stop by one of the kid's school to pick up the prep list for his upcoming choir concert.  It wasn't cold out, but it was cool and this was the perfect amount of layers.
Sweater: BCBGMaxAzria; Skirt: The Limited
Faux Fur Vest: Banana Republic
Earrings: Blue Nile; Necklace: Old Gift From Dad
Bag: Chloe (Borrowed)
Shoes: Marni
I bought these Marni tweed shoes at Buffalo Exchange last summer for $55 and then put them away with all my winter clothes.  Recently I was looking for all my closed-toe shoes and I was happy to pull these out and get to wear them finally.  Also, I think the first photo is the most accurate representation of the color of this bag.  I've mentioned before that the flash makes it seem redder, but that is not how it looks in real life.  I need a photography class.  I noticed when I was editing that all of these photos look very grainy and it's because I had the wrong ISO setting.

Happy Tuesday!


  1. That bag! Those shoes were a score too! I just picked up my Nikon for Dummies book, so I'm hoping to get some test shots soon! :)

  2. I love the fur vest! Great heels too!


  3. Ooh! the shoes are awesome! and what a steal!

    And photography class? sign me up too, I am a total photography n00b.

  4. Thank you, ladies! I'm so relieved that I am not the only one struggling with my camera. I hope to get better because I figure that can only make my blog better, right? :)

  5. Thanks for stopping by my blog - I'm following yours now too! :) I love this outfit...a brown fur vest is definitely on my list of things to snatch up as soon as I find the perfect one!
