Unexpected Combinations

Sweater: JCrew Factory; Shirt: JCrew Factory; Necklace: Chanel; Pants: JBrand; Shoes: Chanel; Watch: Michael Kors; Bag: Kate Spade
Pearls and bows and ballet flats... and plaid? This outfit could have been completely girly, but to add an appropriate level of quirk and to balance out the felinity I added this plaid button up from the JCrew Factory. My oversized Michael Kors watch furthered the balance. 

This sweater is also from the Factory... That place is amazing! So many cute things for such good prices. I had originally discovered it while in Pennsylvania for a friend's wedding, and kind of forgot about it for a while until I recently rediscovered it while searching for this sweater. It is definitely my new go-to.

I bought this Chanel pearl necklace after saving up my paychecks from one of my first part time jobs. I worked at this amazing boutique in college that sold Marc Jacobs and Dolce and Gabbana, so saving my paychecks was always pretty hard! One of my college friends and I were going to New York for Spring Break, and so I saved for MONTHS. This was such a splurge, but I wear it all the time, and can completely see myself passing it down to my future daughter or granddaughter someday.  

Last but not least, my classic Chanel flats grounded the outfit... There was a lot going on on top so I kept the bottom of my outfit simple with my favorite JBrand skinnies and these flats. I might have a slight Chanel obsession... Matt always asks why I couldn't find a less expensive brand to love.  But that's kind of like asking why fire is hot, isn't it? 

Until next time,


  1. I really like this outfit, especially the bow sweater!


    1. Thanks doll! I kept kicking myself for not getting it at JCrew last winter, and then I found it on the factory website. Yay!

  2. Nice outfit ;)
