This is one of those outfits that I thought about weeks ago but then I had a Dory moment and forgot all about this idea. But then this morning I had an 'Oh yeah' moment as I stared into my over cramped closet.
Vest: Old Navy (similar here), JCrew Factory Classic Button-Down Shirt in Gingham, Denizen jeans, Shoes: JCP (similar here)
When I originally thought of this outfit, I didn't plan on wearing the vest with it but I had been missing it. You see, the zipper is a piece of junk. You see where this is going? Because it is a piece of junk it got jammed and I could not get the pull tab to go down. So since it couldn't go down, the only other option was to make it go up. I ended up having to remove the top stop with some pliers and slide the pull tab all the way off. Then I put the top stop back on. The vest had two pull tabs so it wasn't the end of the world that I took one of them off. The zipper is pretty much useless but I can at least still wear it open with sweaters. I do love this vest so I'll probably have the zipper replaced next fall. But until then, I'm going to wear it as long as I can before it's 100 degrees. Which will be in like...a week. Ha.
