Oh my, is this outfit Re-Create a little comical in the making. Of course I found myself another anorexic model to re-create my look. What I loved was all I had to buy for this re-create was six dollar clearance fur snood ( I call it a fur neck wrap) online from Target.
Similar one from Target HERE for $12.

Time for another Two-Fer with this recreate for our Fashion Link-Up with The Blended Blog and ShayMel and Sheaffer for What's Up Wednesday.

 I already had the faux leather leggings, booties, my favorite of all time by Karen Scott and this cute little Cardi that my son's got me for Christmas. I absolutely love the drape of hers, but mine was not big enough to do that and not an asymmetrical front. However, I feel like it got pretty darn close and our sweet youngest son agreed to take these pictures for me on a crazy blustery wind, snowy kind of day. So much so, I couldn't edit it out from the pics.

I truly don't know if I can wear this "snood" on a regular basis as I feel like there is an animal choking me, lol and Gawd.....it's HOT!!!

And so here comes the comical part. After we took these pictures, I threw the snood onto the bed and forgot about it. A few hours later I walked in the bedroom and screamed thinking a cat got in and was taking a nap on the bed. Duh, that stupid snood thingy.

                        Now, time for some What's Up in the Nine neck of the woods......

  2. You are queen of recreating pinterest looks!! I watched the first episode of BLL on HBO (you apparently can stream the first one for free if you don't get HBO -which we dont) and I can already tell that I need to have HBO at least for the length of this season!! Happy Wednesday! xo, Biana -BlovedBoston

  3. You nailed this outfit & are looking super chic and glam with the fur! Beautiful as always Andrea!

  4. You looks so chic! Your "cat" picture cracked me up - that is something I would probably do.

    Daily Style Finds

  5. Your re-creations are so good, you look amazeballs! So funny about the snood - it does look like a cat curled up on the bed! And I really love all of your dresses - perfection! So much goodness in this post, love,love,love!!!!

  6. You nailed this recreation and look so chic! You look gorgeous with your hair up! Cetaphil has been my go-to cleanser for years too! Have a great day!

  8. That fur stool is adorable!!! You look awesome in all your outfits... Still jealous of your snow! Im adding those frozen yogurt bars to my list for the store! They look amazing!

    Brittany :)

  9. You look so SO gorgeous! I love your recreation of this look--especially your super adorable top knot! So cute and cozy but still chic!


  10. Ha! So funny that you scared yourself with your own snood! Dang furs ;-) Have a great day!

  11. I am obsessed with this outfit!! So chic and you look beautiful as always :) yay for Easter decor- I want to put mine up soon! Hope you're having a great week!

  12. Love your outfit! You need to come reinvent my style for me! Definitely going to try those tacos, too!

  13. Your recreation! SO SO Good! You look even better than the skinny model (and you are skinny, too)! And you have me on the edge of my seat as to what you are doing this weekend!

  14. I could totally see why you thought it was the cat, Andrea!! That really made me laugh!
    I have one of these fur scarves, and I love it for the fact that it really keeps me warm! But then again, I'm always cold!!
    I think you're recreation turned out fabulous!

  15. You are the best at re-creating looks!!! Haha, oh my goodness, I probably would have jumped too. I get startled easily by things like that. I have a hard time with things close to my neck so I probably wouldn't wear this often either. At least it was a reasonable price and you looked great for the pictures :) Beautifully Candid

  16. That Fighter song is literally my fav current jam! LOVE the outfits and faux fur! Super cute and chic!

  17. What a cute recreate, Andrea! I always love these posts. I have a similar faux fur stole that I have only worn once this winter since it has been so mild for us. I hate to complain because the weather is gorgeous, but I would like to wear it again haha! Happy Wednesday!

    xo, Rachel

  18. I seriously almost spit my coffee over your opening!! You look adorbs with the top knot. I love eating healthy but I am going to have to leave the chips and hot sauce completely out. I can barely fit any of my pants and I'm dreading pulling my shorts out..blah. I'm loving how that dress looks with leggings and I had not once thought to add that scarf. Happy Wednesday!

  19. Girl... I thought that model was you. When I read it, I was like, What model is she talking about? I just see pictures of her... you look EXACTLY like her!!!!

    I want HBO just to see Big Little Lies! Hoping it comes out on Netflix or something later.

  20. Another great outfit recreation! The snood on the bed is too funny!

    Happy Wednesday dear Andrea!

  31. Whoa, hey hot mama in her faux leather leggings! Love this on you, so cute. And I think you look better than that model. We are super excited for Chicago Justice to start, which I am assuming the Lawyer that has been on PD lately will be on it. Big Little Lies is going to be awesome too!

  32. Oh my goodness, so incredibly chic looking Andrea! Gorgeous! :)

  33. HAHA! It DOES look like a cat laying there! I'd think the same thing! Well done with another look!

  34. Your story cracks me up!! If you just glance at it, it really does look like a cat curled up on the bed! I was eyeing those earlier this year but couldn't pull the trigger. I need to check them out now they are marked down so much! What a fun piece and I love how you wore it!

  35. Fabulous look!!! Haha, loved reading about the fur wrap...you are too funny!!! You pulled it off so well though! Love your hair styled like that - so pretty!!! xo

    Trendy & Tidy

  36. That is such a cute winter look!

  37. Looking super fabulous, as usual, sweet friend! The story of thinking a cat was on your bed totally made my morning! I'm still smiling! lol. Too funny and I'm sure I'd do the same thing! We don't have HBO, but I caught just caught the first episode of Big Little Lies during a free HBO preview weekend and now I'm wishing I could continue to watch ...maybe I should just pick up the book since I was pretty much the only one who hasn't read it yet it seems - lol! I binge watched This is Us up to the current episode while I was sick and wow, I'm so hooked! Fixer Upper is always a great watch too! Thanks for sharing this fun post! *hugs!* xo - Brenda // ChattingOverChocolate.com

  38. Like I always say - you are the ultimate QUEEN of recreating looks!! And we please take a moment to chat about your hair like this? My top knot never turns out this good (whah..). I love the snood and how warm and cozy it looks. It's been freezing here in CA, so I would definitely get some good use out of one right about now! Love this, love you, and hope you have the best weekend, girly! XO



  39. You look gorgeous!! You really made me laugh when you thought it was a sleeping cat on your bed!!!!!!!!!!!!! It really does look like that!

  41. Haha, we have a commercial on the tele were a vet wants to do surgerie on a cat ....And then it turns out to be a fur hat! So funny!

  42. Hahah, I've mistaken some of my furry accessories for my dog in the past! You did a perfect job replicating the look, and it does look so very cozy.

  43. I love that look. I think you did a good job on recreating it. I just downloaded Big Little Lies so I can read it before starting the series!

  44. You do look fabulous! Funny story about the snood...my little dog would like that for a toy... xoxo
