Closet Diaries

Fuzzy Wuzzy Vest
Please tell me that I'm not the only one who remembers that popular tongue-twister from way back when:
"Fuzzy Wuzzy was a bear,
Fuzzy Wuzzy had no hair,
Fuzzy Wuzzy wasn't really fuzzy,
My sisters and I would sing it all the time when we drove in our little copper car which we, unfortunatley, had named Fuzzy. Yes, we named our cars and yes, my sisters, brother and I all agreed on naming one of them Fuzzy. Snowflake was the other lucky car, a white station wagon to be exact...oh yes, we were high rollers in those cars that's for sure. haha.
Today I decided to finally break out the fur that was purchased at the end of winter last year in a great, great sale at Nordstrom. I absolutely adore this vest, it's fuzzy, soft and so warm and cozy! It's comfortable and effortlessly chic; a combination that, no matter their age or profession, every woman wants in their wardrobe. 
I can't begin to tell you how many people have been petting-yes, PETTING-me and telling me how fuzzy and soft I am. I think it's hilarious and it has yet to fail me that, when someone comments on my 'fuzzy' vest, I will immediately start reciting the Fuzzy Wuzzy poem in my head-hence the name of this's just too perfect.  I layered it over a cute floral tunic dress, rolled up at the waist to create the illusion of being a longer shirt. I wore black leggings and my Franco Sarto 'Ponzi' boots from a previous Closet Diaries (for a more casual look, switch out the leggings for a darker wash blue jean) and, of course, my Michael Kors rosegold watch ties it all together. LOVE. 
P.s. I'm smiling just for you, mother. <3
