Spot the Real: Lucy Paris Shaggy Faux Fur Vest

Can you guess which fur vest costs $95?
Truth be told, I wasn't exactly sold on the shaggy faux fur vest look until I saw this outfit idea, which I posted on Instagram. Sometimes you just need to see something in a new context to fall in love with it, and that's what happened with this cozy white layering piece. Having said that, this might not be a piece you wear a ton. And keeping it clean seems challenging at best. I'm going with the look for less that's $34.99 at Target - the designer version is $95.

Fall Outfit Idea: Preppy Duck Boot Inspiration from Pinterest

Duckboots outfit inspiration
Thanks to Pinterest I discovered this preppy-chic way to wear your duck boots this winter, and thanks to Instagram I learned that the "model" behind this outfit is @mh_bennett, as seen on Back Down South (yay social media!). I pinned the look and immediately set to work looking for items I'd need to recreate this ensemble for myself...and judging by the number of "likes" I'd say many of you are feeling inspired by this look, too. It's sporty and practical but oozes classic New England style. Meredith is wearing a J.Crew jacket, Levi's shirt and jeans and L.L.Bean duck boots (you can get all the details on her exact outfit at Back Down South). Read on for my "look for less" picks...
