Wear Now, Wear Later - J.Crew Ruffle Vest

This weekend I accidentally popped into J.Crew. I didn't even mean too...I was shopping for a b-day present and it was just right there and I couldn't resist. I don't think I've ever been in that store without buying something...and this time was no different.

I picked up a few great sale items, including this Dream fluted ruffle vest in antique stone, on sale now for $49.99 plus an additional 20% off when you order online now through 9/10 with the code: EXTRA20 at checkout.

Today I wore this super soft vest in a warmer climate:

Over a blue-striped button down shirt (mine from Gap last year, with more subtle ruffles), with a black skirt from target, black rosette peep-toe heels (mine were Franco Sarto from like 6 years ago, I've had them resoled and fixed several times, I love them) and pearl drop earrings.

This cozy sweat can easily transform to cooler weathers...

Layered over a bright pop of color, like this yellow long sleeve T (only $10!), another bright piece in a teal pencil skirt (this one on sale for $18), dark gray tights and gray heels, maybe even with a coordinating color?! Remember these cute yellow and gray spectator pumps from a post a while back? Then for warmth, throw on a navy blazer or jacket. This outfit should brighten those dull winter days!

Hope you had a great day!
