Although I certainly have my favourite “go-to” looks – usually something leaning in either a boho or a rockerish direction – I also enjoy putting pieces together in rather more unexpected ways.

My boyfriend jeans, for example. At first, I was going to style them with a moto jacket…but then I remembered this adorable, chocolate brown “fun fur” shrug that was a gift from my mom-in-law; and I thought, why not?!

It was errand day today, so I didn’t need to wear anything especially warm just for jumping in and out of the car. Ditto for the shoes…and my husband kindly found a spot of bare pavement to deposit me for this photo shoot, so I wouldn’t ruin them in the slush!! 🙂

And yes…I truly do sometimes “dress it up” like this just for picking up groceries!! Trust me, when you wear scrubs to work every day, you often relish an opportunity to step outside the “expected” box!!

    I love the unexpected pieces together. Faux fur is always so much fun!

      I agree, Shara!! Who needs the real thing when faux fur is just as pretty…and just as cozy!! And I definitely think that the "unexpected" in an outfit is also what can take it from a nice look to an unforgettable one!!
