closet inVESTments

If you are looking to buy a statement piece this winter that will last for seasons to come, I have found it! Right now vests are taking over my closet. I have them in so many colors from black, brown, white and even fake fur! I love the way they make an outfit look, it’s warm but without the bulk! When I have to run errands I hate to wear a big puffy coat because then I start sweating in my big coat, so I always throw on a vest when I do a Target or Wegmans run.

J. Crew Vests

Right now I am working at J.Crew part time to make extra money to hopefully move out of my parents house in the next few months. Getting my own place is a really big financial responsibility, and I know that I like to spend money. I am taking steps to grow my savings so when the time comes I can live the type of lifestyle that I want to. However, everyday I come home wanting to buy something or caving in and buying something at the store. My most recent purchase was two vests I have had my eyes on for a while.

These vests have become my new favorite pieces in my closet. The herringbone vest is a J. Crew staple and right now at J. Crew Factory it is sooo cheap it’s silly not to get it.


I normally would not buy a hot pink vest, but it was on clearance, and with my employee discount it was $20. I decided to wear it to work, but I wanted to dress it up a bit. I wore it with a J. Crew peplum top, black jeans, and black suede boots. I didn’t want to add too many accessories, but for work I need to wear a necklace for the store uniform, so I wore a hot pink necklace and my Kate Spade pink bracelet to keep the pink theme going.

You can’t go wrong with a classic black vest! I have an old one from Gap that I still wear every season, but the J. Crew Factory black vest with the gold detail has me wanting to donate mine and get a new one! I have vests in every single color and wear them regularly at work and running around doing errands. With a vest and a simple t shirt, an outfit can be casual or chic with some accessories and boots.
