|I have been wanting both a faux fur vest and riding boots all winter, but couldn't bite the bullet without going over budget. Post holiday sale time may work in my favor. This is definitely the time of year to buy these items, most are half off! They aren't trendy and won't go out of style. A faux fur vest is timeless, suitable for any age, and can actually work into many outfits. Check out one of my new fave fashion blogger wearing it here. I have always thought of myself as too preppy for this look, but with these prices I am going to shake it up a bit. Riding boots are also a classic, and are totally functional for walking in the city or suburbs pushing a stroller or chasing after little ones. Just don't forget a pop of color on the lip, and you won't even need makeup! Remember the stretch pants so you can squat down to play with your little one, or pick that toy up off the sidewalk they threw for the 100th time! The J crew Pixie Pants are some of my favorites because I don't feel naked wearing them, yet they are as cozy as leggings. What are you buying on sale now?
