Fake Fur Vest With Gold Accessories

I've had this furry vest for 2 years now, but it still feels new because I haven't worn it very much.  I do love it though.  My goal (as I've stated many times, ha) is to #1 drastically curtail the thrifting, #2 over time eliminate more things from my current wardrobe, #3 thereby owning fewer pieces but getting more wear out of them.
One thing I have been wearing a LOT of lately are these black jeans.  I actually have two pair of black jeans (in same size) by Forever 21 that are nearly identical.
I've put on a few pounds over the last few months (will be working on that come the new year) and so these jeans are one of the few pair that I like on me at the moment.  I feel like they are in just about every outfit post these days, haha, but I'm just going to have to get used to that if I'm wanting to become more minimal.  The bottoms will seem much more repetitive than the tops because I've got lot of tops, scarves, accessories, and cardigans that can be used to create many outfits...even if the bottoms are frequent repeats.

Cold Weather Casual + Dinner (Trader Joe's Style)

 Two new (to me) Trader Joe's products made it into this dinner....Vegetable Fried Rice and Chickenless Crispy Tenders.  I loved both of them and will buy them regularly.  I did add a bit of shred carrots to the rice (and maybe soy sauce or stir fry sauce, I can't remember?).  This made for a really good meatless meal.

OOTD Brown Plaid Scarf + Dinner

We had lots of leftover rice from the night we had burritos with mole' sauce so I used another new Trader Joe's product to add to chorizo.

Yum!  I was surprised at how good it was!  And spicy!  It's a winner and will be going on my regular shopping list.  It's only 160 calories per serving.'s only $1.99 per package so each package will give us 3 meals each.  Wow!  Can't beat that.
We'll be having this in taco salads, fajitas, with eggs, over potatoes and yams, and much, much more.
