Just A Little Extra

Am I the only one that appreciates looking good to go do the most basic stuff? No? Good. With the moody weather and new goals of self improvement, I’m all for staying indoors lately and with…a book. A post is coming later about my new found desire to read, so I’ll save all that and get to this look.
I recently, um yesterday, celebrated the Founder’s Day for my sorority which led me to want to be extra for most of the weekend. No, I didn't want to wear a coat, I needed a fur vest. No, I didn't want to wear a cream sweater or button down, I needed a cream pussybow blouse.  These two together made me so happy because they’re pretty simple pieces that can be versatile and aren’t doing the most.
I took advantage of Zara’s end of season sale and scored these jeans for less than $20, which is a such a deal. Although they’re a bit long, they look good in boots and come with a raw hem. Darker washed denim is my go-to, so I was happy to score a nice pair for cheap. Sidenote: That book was originally a prop, but the first page I read had me interested. Honestly considering making that purchase...plus, I just simply adore Joe Biden! 
Accessorizing was pretty easy. I am a true southern girl and I like my bejeweled crosses and big belts, so that's what I put on. My mother had this pretty ring with a brown stone that went perfectly with the vest and I added the gold watch to give some simple arm candy. Because the vest can be a bit much, I didn't want to over do it!
