So Nice to See You...Who Are you Again?

I am in a darn good mood today...not sure why...but I don't question it...I run with it!

I must say I love my outfit today!! Love the fuzzy knit vest, button shirt (yeah I can wear one!!), belt, and cool tree earrings.  Confession...I lusted this vest from Banana Republic and stalked it until it went on sale.  About 2 months ago I bought it, but it hung with the tags on it until this morning.  I was never really sure how to style it.  But after being inspired by different looks I have seen out there in the blogosphere I decided to belt my new button shirt and throw on a pencil skirt to make it office worthy.
Viola...an outfit to be proud of...at least in my silly brain.
Another confession...I just discovered what Breton Stripes actually are...I wanted to post a striped shirt outfit on the wonderful new website Everyday, Everywhere.  But, I am still not sure if they qualify as Breton Stripes...they are thin black and blue horizontal stripes...Am I good??...What do you think??

I TOTALLY had to google Breton stripes too!!! I was bumming that with all the bajillion stripes in my closet, I didn't own ANY "breton" stripes. Geesh!

Love the fuzzy knit vest. Love how you styled it. Love that you stalked it until it went on sale.

Leaving the House in THIS?!?!

So cute! Reminds me of my faker version of a faux fur vest - go team chunky sweater vest!

I'm glad I'm not the only one who didn't know what Breton stripes are. And to be honest, I'm still not entirely sure!

This outfit does look great on you, I love the way you belted the shirt but not the vest. Super chic!

And from what I've heard, any kind of stripes will work!

I say you're good....and lookin' good! Very office worthy outfit!

I absolutely had to google Breton stripes...apparently my fashion terminology needs a little work :)

That vest is adorable, and I love that you sale stalked it before you bought it. Sometimes, that's half the fun of the purchase!

I think that would qualify:) Your fur vest looks so cozy and would put me in a good mood too:)

I love your studdded belt - and I only recently learned about what made a stripe a breton stripe as opposed to just a regular horizontal stripe recently as well.

Chic on the Cheap
