She’s Not Over Chenille

She's Not Over Chenille

Alright, friends, let’s play a game of “spot the goosebumps on Stephanie’s legs in these photos” because it was for real one of the coldest days when we took these, and when you’re downtown in a shaded area, the wind chill is no joke.  A mini skirt may be a great idea for an indoor event, but let’s be honest – you’d be nuts to wear one outdoors right now (and apparently I had to figure that out for myself).  However, I couldn’t resist the appeal of this cute, star-print, faux leather mini that I picked up on megasale at H&M, and good for you: it’s still in stock online (for now)!  I just suggest that if you purchase it, you be smarter than I was and layer with some tights and OTK boots – or stay indoors!

Chenille has been all the rage this winter, and I had to see what all the hoopla was about, so when my future mother-in-law gave me this sweater for Christmas, I was pretty excited, to say the least.  When I think of all the softest materials in the world, chenille is definitely at the top of the list.  It feels like you’re wearing a cloud – if that is possible.  My darling fiancé has a sad aversion to ridiculously soft or fuzzy clothing – like, if I’m wearing a furry jacket and he goes to hug me, he feels like he can’t breathe.  However, he can pet a Pomeranian, so explain that.  Needless to say, this is not his favorite sweater, but because he loves me, he still says it’s pretty on me and fights through his inability to function just so he can hug me (thanks, babe).

I am not in the same boat as Brandon (thank goodness) and I absolutely adore oh-so-soft clothing.  So, this particular sweater is right up my alley.  Unlike my skirt, it provides ultimate warmth and protection from the bitter cold.  I’ve gotten into the habit of wearing it at least twice weekly, and I guess you could say that I finally understand why chenille is so on-trend at the moment!  That being said, I did a little web browsing and found some other totally swoon-worthy chenille pieces that I think you should shop right now (and I should as well)!  Let me know what you think about this cozy material!
