Plaid, Fur, and a Giveaway!

Happy New Year! I’m excited 2015 is here. So far this year will be bringing us many changes. We’ve just started our remodel, I’m traveling out of the country next week, and who knows what else is going to happen!

They say the way you spend your New Year’s is the way you’re going to spend the rest of the year. We played it low-key and went over to Dave’s Aunt’s house to eat fried chicken from Ezell’s and celebrate with family. I mean, if eating good food and being entertained by a 2-year-old is how I’ll spend my year, I guess I’ll take it. ;)

What I’m not looking forward to, however, is going back to work. Today is my first day back at work since December 23rd, and I’ve enjoyed the time off. The good news? I don’t have to phsycially leave my house (work from home, woohoo!) but that doesn’t mean I’ll be enjoying it. And the fact that I didn’t quite get everything done that I wanted to on my break will continue to haunt me. It’s always a bummer when you don’t quite make your own goals. Oh well, such is life.

How to Wear a Fur Vest / Plaid Shirt and Fur Vest Outfit / hellorigby!

You may recognize this fur vest from last week’s post. I’m basically obsessed with it, and wore it again on Christmas Eve. I liked the outfit so much that I thought I’d share it. I know some struggle with how to wear a fur vest, so you may see it again soon. And the fact that it’s super warm and it’s been in the 20s? Yeah, I’ll probably be wearing it every other day. #SorryNotSorry

What I’m Wearing
Shirt: Olive & Oak
Vest: Vintage, thrifted (last worn)
Jeans: LC Lauren Conrad
Booties: Frye, thrifted (similar)
Necklace: BaubleBar
Ring: Forever 21

    That plaid shirt is so pretty, you can’t go wrong with a good plaid shirt.
    I rang in the New Year in bed watching TV, and complaining about what felt like a million people near me finding fireworks fun. Seriously, the first few are fun but after 20 minutes it gets old.

    1. Jenn Post author

      Thanks Rosie! Haha, I know what you mean about the fireworks. Neighbors near where we were celebrating were doing the same thing!

  2. Cynthia

    All of it! But especially that Chloe perfume. It would just be fun to try new products outside of my “tried and true” ones I alllways buy. Maybe I’ll discover something new :)

  3. LaTanya

    the Chloe rollerball

    I accidentally left out one letter in my answer to the youtube- I follow via this name 82sweetums

  4. Julie

    I’m such a lame-o, I slept through it! I made it until around 11pm but I fell asleep before the ball dropped. lol! I would actually love to try everything in that gift set! lol! If I had to pick one thing I would say, the surf spray! I’m always looking to try out something new on my hair because it doesn’t really do much. haha!

    1. Jenn Post author

      Haha, I totally could have fallen asleep before midnight, but there was enough noise from the kids that I probably would have woke up again! ;) Good luck, Julie!

    oh no, i hope how i spent new years is not how the rest of the year will go. the boyfriend was sick, i was annoyed at the change of plans, and i moped! but, i was happy in my home with him and my cats…so that i’ll take! have fun out of the country, and yes, i am at work now. but…we are getting out at 1 (and still being paid all day!)

    i so want to try the pore stuff. thank you!!

    1. Jenn Post author

      Ha, I don’t think it’s really true. I spent New Year’s with Strep a few years ago, and it was the only time I was sick that year! ;) Hope he’s feeling better though! And thanks – work was a bummer, but makes me more excited to take a vacation next week! Good luck, B! :)

    I love this vest and the Forever 21 ring! I’m stuck at work today too. :( The bright side is it seems like everyone else took off, so I have a slow day. Safe travels!

  7. Kathryn

    You look great!!

    I also hate when you don’t get everything accomplished over a break that you had hoped for. But it tends to happen so don’t beat yourself up about it. Good luck with work today! (Although working from home is sometimes harder than going to the office, I find!)

    xx Kathryn

      Thanks Kathryn!

      Ha, yeah, it’s definitely an interesting battle working from home. I often find myself trying to get chores done when I should be working. Oops!

  8. andrea amy

    most excited about the smashbox bb cream :) I accidentally hit submit on the instagram entry and I think I typed my name wrong lol (and we can no longer edit our entries once we submit). My actual instagram name is andrea_hockeygirl ( I think I spelt girl wrong lol)

  9. Christy Peeples DuBois

    It would be between the Porefessional, the Nars blush and the Stila eyeliner. This is a wonderful giveaway. When I first saw it I started to buy it but decided against it. I just hated to spend the money on myself until after I had bought for my daughters and others then of course it was sold out. Thanks so much for the great opportunity.

    1. Christy Peeples DuBois

      And as for ringing in the New Year, I spent a quiet evening at home and enjoyed it. I love your top and vest-so stylish. Thanks again.

  10. Kelly Minyard

    I’d love to try the surf spray! I just love your blog…. the outfits, the posts. Everything. You’re so classy and beautiful!

  11. Kim Pincombe Cole

    Everyone raves about the Josie Maran Argan Oil!! Dying to try it. And the Benefit They’re Real mascara is my favorite!

    1. Jenn Post author

      Hi Marta! Yes, it is open internationally. If its cost prohibitive to ship to your country (this set contains liquids), I’ll provide a gift card instead. :)

  12. Alex

    I love the fur vest, so keep the outfits coming!

    I would love to try Benefit’s They’re Real Mascara! It’s been on my wishlist for so long!

  13. Kati Rose

    I love the plaid/fur look that’s popular right now. I just wish I could find me a faux fur vest that was form fitting! I’ve struck out multiple times now! Luck has gotta be on my side soon.

    1. Jenn Post author

      I know what you mean – I had a hard time too. I liked this vintage one because the fur is so much shorter than most of the ones I’ve tried on, which helps it not look too crazy bulky, and it’s cropped a bit which works better for me since I’m short. Hope you find the perfect one soon!

  14. Sarah

    I really love your outfit! It’s so comfy and cute. I would be most excited to try the mascara because I’ve been looking at it, but never buying it for a long time!

  15. Natalie Brown

    Happy New Year! How do I choose?! One of the products I’d love to try is the Nars blush. Thank-you for the awesome generous chance!!

    1. Vickie

      I mean Nars not Tarte..all these products are the bomb!!!! I have smash box and sugar now and love them..and after seeing Josie on the Q have wanted to try her line for over a year..thanks doll.

  16. Miri Weiss

    This set looks A-M-A-Z-I-N-G !!!
    I’m most excited to try the Benefit ” They’re Real ” Mascara and after that , Nars Cosmetics Blush – both of them seem to be really good for me ♥
    Thank you for this lovely giveaway, dear Jenn, I wish I win :-)

  17. Tammi L.

    I am most excited to try the Brow Wiz… it is the one product I am completely unsure of so would never buy. I’ve always been so curious to try it though! Thanks!

  18. alicia szemon
