Someone commented that this pink vest was my best purchase of 2012. And I’m pretty sure they were right. After buying it in October, I basically never took it off. Wearing in place of a coat, under a coat for extra warmth, and just wearing it everyday around the house to keep me from freezing—this has been my go-to item all fall and winter. And guess what. It’s back online. And it’s on sale. Just thought you should know.
This week, I was in JCrew (my current muse) and these were the first two looks as you walk in the door. I must say, I was a little shocked to see a jean jacket, with jeans, and a chambray top. It seemed a little over the top to me and at the same time absolutely amazing. They have a way of doing that. What do you think about this look? Do you think you could (or would) pull it off? I think I may give it a go. I already have most (though I am buying this top tomorrow) of these items in my closet, so it wouldn’t be difficult to pull off without spending a dime. Let me know what you think!
I’m also totally in love with this dress right next to it. Isn’t it so beautiful! I am a huge fan of dresses with sleeves. I usually get a little chilly and this is perfect for that little bit of chill to keep you a bit warmer. Or, it allows for a fur vest or something else over it. So beautiful.
And while we’re talking about JCrew, I’m obsessed with this bag. Yes. I want another bag. Lord help me!
Well, I finally settled on the perfect pair of white jeans. I know you’ve all been waiting with bated breath . . . Ha!
Anyway, as you know, I bought a pair of the Matchstick jeans from JCrew and asked you all for some help and boy did you help! Your advice was if I wanted to wear them with boots, I should go a size smaller. So I went back and tried on a size smaller. What I finally decided is that they were still a little too wide at the ankle for wearing inside boots. They are for sure more of a straight leg than a skinny jean. So while I really loved them, I just decided they weren’t the right purchase for me right now.
So after looking high and low, I finally found this pair at American Eagle. And while the quality is not as great as the JCrew pair, I can comfortably tuck them into boots or wear them with heels.
