I'm seriously not a huge fan of winter weather, especially if it dips below 25 degrees. So I have to get creative to help keep my style #onpoint, otherwise I find myself falling into a dull style rut. Enter fun winter fashion pieces like: faux-fur jackets and velvet shoes to help make everyday life a little more exciting. What do you currently have in your closet that helps make the winter a little more brighter?

I have owned this faux-fur jacket for over a year now, but I had only worn it on one occasion - a friend's winter wedding [back when I first purchased this]. Crazy thing is, I didn't have the nerve to wear it out-and-about Indy last year. So when I found the jacket buried in the back of the closet, I decided to pull it out and try wearing it more on a everyday basis [like with jeans on a casual Monday]. 

Do you have something in your wardrobe that just sits there, but you don't have the nerve to wear?
