Although it’s still 85 degrees here at the beach in Santa Monica, I just can’t wait any longer to wear my amazing Cotton On fur vest. So I’ve been combining it with practically everything I own and I’ve officially deemed it my Favorite Item.
I am OBSESSED with this faux fur vest. The beautiful cream color goes with everything, including gray, black and red. The “fur” is so soft, I feel like an animal. I could literally sit and pet myself all day long. The satin liner is nice and comfy against my body. And there are POCKETS!!!
So basically it’s the perfect outerwear, especially for SoCal – it is rarely cold enough to require a jacket, and a jacket or fur jacket would be overkill. A fur vest, though, is perfect because it can keep your arms free and it’s easy to take off when it gets too warm.
I combined the fur vest with this gray t-shirt dress from H&M and these gray suede ankle booties from Payless for a day at work. As you can see, even though the dress isn’t long-sleeved, it still works with the vest. AND I kept cool all day. #SoCalWinter.

For happy hour with a friend who is moving away, I paired the fur vest with this flowy maroon blouse from Fashion Rush (maroon truly is the color of the season), black liquid leather leggings from H&M and these awesome black and white colorblock pumps from Payless. I felt SO “fall,” although I did really overheat in the bar and needed to remove my vest. #Bummer.
I’ve also worn this vest out when I legitimately thought it was going to be cold (spoiler alert – it wasn’t). I paired the vest with this thick black long-sleeved sweaterdress from H&M and black suede ankle booties from Payless (the exact same boots as the gray ones from outfit #1!). The Tiffany’s heart charm necklace sealed the “LA Girl in Winter” look. And I drastically overheated but felt adorable.
It’s another 80-degree week here in LA, so yet again I’ll be waiting on my vest. But as soon as the weather cools down (if it ever cools down), expect to see a dozen new outfit creations with my beloved fur vest!
