Texture upon texture

I mentioned yesterday that I was racing around town all weekend trying to find a dress for my company Christmas party and, like a huge dingbat, this is what I decided to wear.  Cute? Um, duh.  Warm? Perfect amount of layers.  Practical? B*tch, please!  Who wears three shirts, knee high boots, and the skinniest skinny jeans with zero stretch ever placed on planet earth to the mall while speed shopping for a dress in an hour and a half timeframe?  THIS GIRL.   It took way longer to get undressed and redressed than it did to try on the 15 or so dresses that caught my eye.  Silly little blonde girl...

Anyways, I've been loving the look of the jackets that are out with canvas bodies and leather sleeves.  Instead of running out and buying one, I decided to create the illusion of one with a vest and faux leather jacket.  I think it actually works!  

Vest: J.Crew (old) very similar for $18.97!
Jacket: Sammy Dress, awesome alternative here for $34
T-Shirt: H&M, similar
Clutch: Kate Spade Harrison Street Travel Wallet - ostrich option here
Bracelets: J.Crew Classic Pave' Link, Kate Spade - look at this one!!  Love it!, Banana Republic (in store only)



  1. In the non-weirdest way ever, I saw you at j crew in th galleria on Friday! I adore your blog and I would have said hi but you seemed busy! We also share the same name :) please keep on posting your fabulous outfits, you are my style inspiration!

    1. AHHH! You should have said hi! I love it! I was definitely in a tailspin, going a hundred miles an hour. My Christmas party was about an hour away and I had to dress my man in addition to myself. Thank God for Billy!!


  2. Love that vest and all your layers! Perfect outfit
