Happy Wednesday! I am so happy it’s hump day because it’s already been one hell of a week and I am already mentally & physically exhausted.
I did most of my shopping the day before Thanksgiving since sales had already hit the stores. Although there were a million and one sales (and every single one of them tempted me) I just had to go to J.Crew. This season I’ve definitely been leaning more towards Banana Republic than J.Crew. I barely purchased anything from their fall collection and just about purchased everything from Banana’s fall collection. But, with J.Crew’s new arrivals, I fell back in love.
So on Wednesday night I made my way to the SoHo store and went a little crazy…and of course justified everything. I picked up two pairs of jeans (girls got to wear pants!). A bunch of button downs (I can wear them to work and layer them under everything!). A gorgeous skirt (Perfect for the Holidays!). And a new vest (I collect them…).
Ok, I’m totally being dramatic, but I consider it a talent being able to justify every purchase as if I really needed another vest. I have to say though out of all of my excursion vests, the buffalo check is proving to be my favorite. I love the red & navy color and I love that it’s a printed vest. Definitely not going to be the last time you see this on the blog.
Vest: J.Crew. Sweater: J.Crew (old, similar here and here). Shirt: J.Crew. Denim: J.Crew. Shoes: C.Wonder. Bag: Botkier. Earrings: BaubleBar (bottom pearl linked, top stud sold out, similar here). Sunnies: Ray-Ban.
Thank you so much for reading L.A Style, N.Y Smile!

I'm so glad I'm not the only one who justifies my clothes and accessories hoarding! I know I didn't NEED to buy five dresses last week, but they were FOUR DOLLARS each! Lol!
Loving this outfit, you have a fantastic handbag collection!
I have been stalking this vest online for weeks and I LOVE it on you! Great bag and booties too. Perfect layered look.
That vest is amazing! Well I am with Stacie, I know I didn't need to buy all the stuff, but I am a collector, see (that's sounds so much better than hoarder, lol) You look great and I love the layering here.
I love how you styled this vest with a statement necklace and a button down! Such a cute outfit and you look so pretty!
It's easy to justify purchases when they're as great as those! Love the vest and the sparkly top!
