My best kept shopping secret? Don’t limit yourself to only shopping the women’s section! I very proudly own pieces from both the men’s & children’s sections too. For example, I have men’s camo pants {the perfect boyfriend fit}, boy’s sweaters from Crew Cuts {much cheaper}, & several vests and tanks from the girl’s section. One of my favorite out-of-department purchases? This faux fur vest from the girls section at Target!
 
Chambray: H&M similar here / Faux Fur Vest: Target kids- in stores only similar here, here, & here/ Maroon Skinnies: Forever 21 similar here / Necklace: Bauble Bar / Bar Necklace: Jane similar here / Cut Out Boots: TJ Maxx similar here and here/ Bow Bag: Kate Spade similar save option, splurge option

I stumbled upon this faux fur vest while searching for this polka dot puffer vest {bought that too}! It’s at a perfect price point & is a great fit! This vest is not yet online but I linked several other great options!

Also, I want to mention this fabulous necklace from Bauble Bar. It was my first BB purchase and I absolutely love it! If you’ve never checked out their jewelry, I encourage you to go look!

I wore this ensemble last night to an event at The Limited with my favorite twins from The Double Take Girls. They were so much fun & have such great style!

Enough of my rambling… Enjoy your Wednesday!!

Let’s talk details.
Small outfit details can really make or break an outfit. They can gussy up a look & take it from plain jane to totally complete! Of course jewelry is an easy way to add to any outfit. Details like cuffed jeans & a half tucked shirt are also ways to change things up a bit!

Top: J.Crew Factory / Skinnies: American Eagle / Ankle Bootes: Target {similar here} / Watch: Kate Spade via Nordstrom / Statement Necklace: Mindy Maes Market / Personalized Necklace: Very Jane {similar here} / Belt: Target / Purse: Forever 21 {similar here}
FYI: I will caution you with the fact that my husband HATES this half tuck look. He gave me the evil eye when I asked him to photograph this outfit for me! (thanks anyways babe!) So if you plan on taking this look for a spin, don’t expect it to be a hit with the boys!
On a more positive note, I scored this J.Crew Factory top for a great price during a recent sale. I think it will be super versatile this fall… Wearing it under vests, sweaters, and jackets for a polished look or over a graphic tee for a more fun style!
Tomorrow is the last day to enter my Instagram giveaway!

Unless you’ve been hiding under a rock for the past year, you know just how popular this Zara blanket plaid scarf is! I finally got my hands on it & I’m so happy I was able to snatch one up! One thing you need to understand is just how LARGE this plaid scarf is… Let’s just say they don’t call it a blanket scarf for no reason.
