Avoiding the Closet Blues: Mixing Plaids

January 27, 2016

Vest: JCrew, Skirt: JCPenny (old), Bag: Rebecca Minkoff, Shirt: Tj Maxx, Scarf: RSVP Greensburg, Shoes: DSW, Bracelets: Jcrew 

Have you ever just got the closet blues and felt that you needed to spice up your wardrobe? Well, this is what happened the other day for me. The outcome was actually pretty good! This checkered puffer vest has been sitting in my closet for a little over a year and has been staring at me. So I finally decided to pull an outfit together with this Jcrew vest. Originally I was very nervous and worried if this looked alright. After a few simple touches, it dawned on me that this outfit actually, was really chic! Who would have seriously thought, not me? I guess to sum up this post go out and experiment with your fashion! Something fabulously chic can happen! 
Happy Thursday to you all!
