How Wear Gingham Button Down

J.Crew seems to always been having a sale, am I right? (And thank goodness because otherwise I probably wouldn’t shop with them!) This excursion quilted vest, however, never seems to be included! I had been wanting it so long, I finally gave in and indulged. It’s a classic piece that will withstand fads and trends, so I can’t really say it’s a bad investment. I broke it out over the weekend, and pairing it with gingham plaid for it’s debut just seemed like the right thing to do. Puffer vests and plaid were made for each other, no?

This gingham button down has been a classic piece in my wardrobe for over a year. It’s been perfect for mixing with leopard print, pairing with bright capris, and pattern mixing with stripes!

    I love how you styled the quilted vest with gingham! Yes, I think they were made for each other 🙂

    I think that vest is a great buy–it looks so cozy and warm without being bulky, plus it will go with everything. I love how you styled it here!

    J.Crew put a striped one on sale recently and I decided that was the best it was going to get for me. I love the solids though. The cream is going to be a great piece. I love it!

    A lot of times they will have the vest on a small sale in the store. But either way, its a great vest that you will wear for YEARS!
