“She always stood out from the crowd so she decided to embrace it and just be exactly who she was!”
I don’t own a “real” fur, but I have to admit I have quite a few fur coats, jackets and then some with fur accents like the Leather one in this post. I love it because no matter what I am wearing, when I add fur it just elevates the whole look and makes me look and feel classy (not to mention the fact that it also keeps me warm).
Wearing fur can be a little intimidating for a lot of people, because it’s definitely one of those things that really makes you stand out. In today’s post I am showing just a few of the fur coats and a jacket with fur detail so you can see the many ways to wear it. I do realize that not everyone is going to want to wear things exactly like I like, so as well as posting links to shop the coats I am wearing, I have also included some links that are not quite so bold (see the bottom of the page).
Over this Thanksgiving weekend I was speaking with Dalton, my oldest son, and asking what he wanted for Christmas. He said that he pretty much just wanted cologne, shoes and clothes. Right after he had finished telling me, he paused and said “I don’t want all STYLEQUEENIE clothes though!” When I asked him what he meant he said that he’s OK with some things that are flashy but he didn’t want me to buy everything according to what I like, which apparently he thinks is too “flashy”. I had a choice, to get offended or just take it for what it is and realize that not everyone is going to like the same things as me, and just move on. I chose to move on and take it as a compliment – I like being flashy, I like to stand out – there’s nothing wrong with that, I’m just being ME. It’s also OK that he doesn’t want to do that…it’s OK that he is who he is supposed to be as well.
I have always encouraged my kids to be themselves and express themselves how they want to in their style – but this also means that I sometimes have to take them out wherever we are going looking a little less put together than I would like. The good news is that now they are all a little older, there are very few times that they are not presentable, and they feel validated. They feel like they are free to be themselves! This was a lesson I was taught by my dad. I have always enjoyed dressing differently than others, and as I was growing up, my dad always told me “if you look good, feel good and it makes you happy, then you shouldn’t worry about how others view you.” I 100% agree with that statement and it has definitely guided me many times in my life – especially the part about not worrying what others think. I have found that when I like the way I look and I don’t judge myself, then that also is how others see me and there is no way that their view can negatively impact me.
So does fur make you flashy? Well, it can, it just depends on how you wear it, and how much confidence you have in yourself. There is one thing for sure though, it is definitely going to get cold and fur can keep you warm.
Why not add a little fur into your life – and increase your wow factor?
