Feels like Fall

Well, Michigan football is terrible. 

At least we can dress like it's fall. Or if you're me, just dress like a head-to-toe J.Crew model. 

Not so original, but wildly comfortable.

But guys, I have to tell you something. 

I haven't been doing much shopping lately. Yes, this is a fashion-ish blog and so therefore you probably expect a lot of new-new-new. But that's not my thing. Since I got out of college I did a fairly good job of accumulating the things that I knew I wanted. 

Classic boots? Check. 

Perfect jeans? Check.

Dream bag? Check. 

Basic button downs? Check. 

And yes, sometimes I asked for them for Christmas. Sometimes for Valentine's Day...I certainly didn't buy it all myself (but let me tell you something, sometimes a man needs suggestions). 

So now I'm done, right? 

No need to shop?

Well, not quite. 

But, as I approached this fall, I was pleasantly surprised to feel like I didn't need to buy much. I love my jeans, I have a solid collection of boots (rounded out nicely by my birthday gift) and I have more jackets than the coat room at The Plaza.

So, when J.Crew was having their 25% off sale this weekend, I wasn't that interested in anything. However, when my friend Julia and I stopped in Saturday, we were both shocked at how nice the new vests look in person. Yes, I blogged about them. And yes, of course I assumed they were fairly nice. However, when I saw it first-hand I was blown away. We both commented that it looks exactly like a Moncler

So, I bought it. 

(obviously)

Because sometimes in life, when you realize how great something is, you can't pass it up. 

Even if you don't particularly "need" it.

Anyway. I have worn it two days in a row and received many a compliment. 

I highly recommend it if you're in the market. 

…or if you're not.
