Plaid Puffer + Pearls

 Top: J. Crew     Vest: Uniqlo (similar)      Pearls: J. Crew Factory     Boots: Tory Burch       
Jeans: 7 for All Mankind (altered)     Hair: Irresistible Me 

Is it really almost MARCH?  I've been clinging to my winter wardrobe for the past month or so, as we've had mixed weather.  Cold one day, hot the next.  As much as I love spring, I'm not quite ready to stash away my sweaters and boots yet!

This vest from Uniqlo is so light, packable, and I love that it's not filled with down (just air!).  I don't really use vest for warmth purposes, just layering pieces.  Plaid and stripes is one of my favorite unexpected print combos, and I love having neutrals like these cognac riding boots and my favorite jeans in there to break it up a bit.

And of course, pearls aren't just relegated towards formal-wear only.  I love incorporating this J. Crew pearl necklace into casual and dressy outfits.   Thinking of classic pieces as a neutral (like pearls or a tan trench coat) makes them really easy to transition from day to night.
