{SAHM Style} Glam Safari

I love to match unconventional pieces together. A glam metallic gold blouse underneath an animal safari jacket is probably the most daring pairing to date. I like safari style jackets. I like animals on clothes. Therefore, finding this 70s vintage Abercrombie & Fitch hunting jacket equals thrift gold! It's that "cute ugly" I like. It's very unique with impeccable stitching, quality fabric, and even coconut shell buttons. You don't find details like this anymore!

The gold metallic top was found a while ago. I never wore it because the neckline was too high. It took me all of a year to do a 60 second diy on it. I popped about 5 of the stitches with a seam ripper and tied a knot with the lose threads. Now it's perfect for a little decolletage action.

Topped the look off with a faux fur vest for a tad extra warmth and a pair of jeans. I pulled out my cute tall boots which I haven't worn in a while. I've ruined a couple of pairs already this winter with all of the salt and snow slush mix we're having. I will not lose another pair.

This was the perfect SAHM attire for getting errands done. In and out of store and car without being to hot or cold. The balmy 38º temps also brought on another round of snow. I had to go back in and swap out my good boots with the salt destroyed snow boots but I also got to wear the cutest snow pants ever.

Love! Sometimes it just takes a little playing around to get something b that most people wouldn't wear paired correctly and then it looks amazing.

Balmy 38º! Hah. You know it's been insanely cold when 38º feels balmy. Love the jacket!

Definitely a great running-around-town outfit and I love the boots.

That is the best 'ugly' jacket I ever did see. And, to boot, it's not even ugly! Love the touches of the gold and the fur. Inspired!!
