About a year ago I was on the hunt for anything and everything mint colored. I adored mint, and I loved all accessories in that color. Enter J. Crew, who was selling waffle sweaters in basically every color…including mint! I was so excited, I immediately bought it. But then this year, I wasn’t as into mint, and I didn’t bring this sweater to school with me. While I was home, though, I wore it, and remembered how much I liked it! It’s also extremely soft, like all J. Crew sweaters.

As you’ve probably figured out, I adore vests. I’m all about the J. Crew Excursion vest look. I usually put a vest over everything, especially since the weather where I go to school is kind of unpredictable. Sometimes it looks warm, but it’s freezing when I go outside. Sometimes it looks cold, but is super warm when I head to class. It can be inconsistent, and hard to dress for, but I’ve found that a light sweater, vest, and jeans proves pretty full proof. For Christmas, I got this adorable cream vest, and I’m so happy to have a more neutral vest in my wardrobe. I previously had navy and herringbone, but I have so many navy tops, I can’t really put the navy vest with them, and the herringbone is more for dressing up (usually). Cream is the perfect middle!

What do you think of vests? How do you style them?
