The J. Crew Herringbone Vest



Vest: J. Crew Outlet (sold out, save/splurge)|Dress: Target|Booties: Forever 21 (recent, save/splurge)|
Bag: Phillip Lim for Target|Sunglasses: Charming Charlie|Nail Polish: Essie "Bikini So Teeny"

So... I am a little ashamed to admit how I tracked down this "sold out" J. Crew Herringbone vest. After seeing this amazing vest online and trying on my friend's, I fell in love. To my dismay it was sold out in my local (and regional) J. Crew Outlets; so, the amazing sales lady called around until they found one a few states away that was willing to ship it to me. {Hey, a girl's gotta do what a girl's gotta do.} Since it is still so warm in the South, {and I couldn't wait to wear it} I decided to pair it with one of my favorite LBD and booties. I can't wait to wear it with skinny jeans once it cools off! Let me know what you think!
XO, CHRISTINA
