    I love how the last look could be easily changed to skinny jeans/jeggings type thing. I’m not big on skirts but this would be just as cute with jeans.

    Hi Ashley,

    where can you buy that red button-down shirt? I can’t find it at JC Penneys…

    Thank you!

    Hey Ani, I did a quick search of the site, but couldn’t find that red button-down either. However, there are similar JCP plaid tops here and here. If you really want that exact top though, I’d suggest contacting JCP (maybe via Twitter or Facebook?) and asking for specific product info. Hope this helps!

    I love that vest! I got it myself on Black Friday when I spotted it!!
    Protip: if you have a larger chest, opt for a size up~

    I got this exact same vest last year, except it’s blue plaid. Brittany is right about sizing it up if you’re a larger chest size.

    Great vest! I love the versatility. I have a black puffer vest that works well in fall and winter and I can wear it with pretty much anything.
