When it gets all crisp and cold there is nothing you want to do more than make your home more cozy. And the simplest way to do that is to just start tossing sheepskin rugs around like confetti. Draped over a chair, sofa, on a floor, on a bench- they add fabulous texture and a high-end look while upgrading the fuzzy, awesome factor of wherever they land by like, 100 percent. Babies and dogs are BIG, BIG fans too. BIG. Bax and Ollie would fight to the death over a sheepskin rug. Or anything fuzzy really. Our West Elm faux fur blanket has somehow become a dog bed….
Just look at how all these folks used them. IKEA has tons of them for awesome prices, of course. But see the Shop The Post items at the end of this post for more sources!
(They work great in bathrooms on cold floors!)
This might be overkill, but how cozy do these people look???
Nurseries are a perfect spot for these, big or small- babies love to snuggle on them!
I’m so feeling this faux sheepskin tree skirt for holiday decor that doesn’t scream “Christmas!!!!!!!” and make your eyes bleed. Also, these stockings.
Speaking of, during the chillier months throw a few sheepskins over outdoor furniture and get cozy!
How much do you 1) wish this was real and 2) that it wouldn’t be the biggest decor eyesore if it was? I did find a smaller one though. :)

I am not exactly of the Carrie Bradshaw variety when it comes to shoes, but I do remember the first pair I ever really fell in love with. A white fringed pair of short cowboy boots. I was about 9 I was confident I would wear those things forever (or at least until my feet no longer fit in them). I’m pretty sure I wore them every day for about a year- I mean, they really made every outfit SO much better, as white fringed cowboy boots are wont to do. As I grew up I never felt that way about a pair of shoes again, being more of a handbag kind of girl. I never really saw the point in spending over $150 on shoes and kept my collection pretty modest.
Well, now I get it. I acquired my first pair of Louboutins two years ago and while I still think the price is ridiculous and I won’t be collecting them, I can now appreciate a good shoe. When I found a pair of perfect nude Prada peep toe pumps on sale for 50% off this year I nearly threw my body on top of them like I was taking on sniper fire. My fancy heel collection is limited to that for now, the rest being budget friendly as I ruin the heels SO fast on Boston’s cobblestones and sidewalks. But I do see rationale in spending more on good leather boots and flats as they last so much longer and are worn so much more often on a daily basis for actual walking.
So here are my picks for a perfect shoe wardrobe. I’m sure I’ve left out some (sneakers for one) but I feel like I could get by with this collection all fall and winter- heels, flats and boots, oh my.
** Side note- a few of these are on sale today- the gold Chloe flats are 25% off (code FRNFAM) as are the glittery Kate Spade’s (everything is 30% off with code FALL13FF)!
