Gorgeous Floral & Wubby Vest


Hello my friends. Remember all those remarks I made about how unseasonably warm it's been in Georgia? Well, scratch that. It's cold (or cold for us with temps in the low 20s). I left my house in these heels and my feet were like, "excuse me?"! But I ignored them, knowing that we'd be indoors shortly. And the top half of me was layered to perfection.

It all began with this gorgeous, print top with a flattering length and comfortable cut from my friend and online boutique owner, Shannon with the Southern Blue by Piphany. I own another in the same style, but in a more neutral grey. (Have a look!) Funny thing, she loved the print so much she purchased one for herself. I told her that if she was going to have the same shirt as me, she would be appearing on the blog as well. (Scroll down for pics of how the lovely Shannon styled hers.)

Have you heard of Piphany clothing? I hadn't before Shannon.



From there I added the wubby vest, which was one of my Christmas gifts. Admittedly, the wubby texture makes me think of duck boots, jeans and a sweatshirt but it's so soft and cozy, I decided to dress her up.  The pants are an old pair of slacks that are almost leggings. What would you call that? Sleggings? Or Peggings?


All that remained were the accessories. I knew I would pull out the matching heels I picked up for $6 at a warehouse. (yes, you see them a lot on the blog.) Then it was a matter of jewelry. I decided to break out of my long necklace streak and instead reach for a statement piece! That's where blanca, some gold fan earrings and then a simple flexible cuff bracelet (only $19!) came in, which is my featured jewelry piece for the day. Why? Simply because it's new. 

Outfit Breakdown:
Floral Top: Piphany Clothing (The Southern Blue)/Wubby Vest: Francesca's (Exact)/Black Pants: Old/Shoes: WHBM Warehouse Find (Amazon Option)/Saddlebag Purse: Vince Camuto (Last Year)/Statement Necklace (Blanca)/Flexible Cuff Bracelet (It Girl)/ Leather Jacket: Michael Kors (Most Recent)

***Meet Shannon***

Meet my friend Shannon! She is a sweet, caring, hard working and motivated individual. I am blessed to call her friend and I hope you will check out her Facebook page. You'll love her, as well as the great clothing finds she has to offer!



Well my sweet friends, I hope you're New Year is off to a great, goal oriented start. ;) We are 3 days in!! So far, I'm continuing to drink more water with my new water bottle! Hey, it may be small but I was only drinking about 1 to 2 glasses of water a day!!!! I know!! Terrible! On the bright side it's not hard to improve on that, right?? Wink. Wink.

Much love,

Chrissy


And if you made it this far....This backdrop was suggested by my comedic hubby. ;)

  1. Oh, I love your hubby's sense of humor, lol!!! I also love your floral blouse and that wubby vest! I wouldn't mind having a vest like that at all to layer over a beautiful floral top. Love how Shannon styled her top too. And girl, those $6 shoes are CRAZY good - what a find. The other day my black cardigan arrived from WHBM that you showed last week. What a great deal, thanks for sharing it, I couldn't be happier with my purcahse. These colors suit you so well my beautiful friend!
    Oh, as for the weather, it's freezing and raining here - holy cow, the weather literally changed overnight! Stay warm friend!

    1. Thanks Ruth! Do you remember when the "wubby" style was out years ago?? I never owned a pullover myself so it's fun to have one this go round. :)

  5. haha, I laughed out loud at the last photo, what a sense of humour your husband has! I much prefer the backdrop in the first set of photos better! That's a beautiful floral tunic too and it's so nice to see two different ways to wear it with your friend starring on your blog too :)

    Happy new year! Hope that 2018 is going well for you! We've been enjoying the warmer weather with some pool time, as it has been a particularly humid summer so far the pool has been a good idea!

  9. That IS such a gorgeous floral top and I love the fit and length of it. I didn't know what that type of material was called, so now I know it is called wubby (which my autocorrect keeps trying to change to hubby! lol). I actually have a wubby vest and I need to style it with one of my floral tops, thanks SO much for the inspiration!!!

  11. Yes! To the portapic! Hahaha! You know that is right up my alley as far as humor goes. And sleggings? I laughed out loud at that one, too. Wubby vest and sleggings! But on a less funny note, this outfit is amazing! And those shoes...LOVE! Sorry your feet were cold, but they looked hot, hot, hot! Hehe. And such a cute blouse. I love the way you both have styled it. Thanks for linking up with me On the Edge!
