OOTD: Warm tones.

I thought the title, "Warm tones," was better than "This shade of green sorta reminds me of boogers." Right?

 Sweater: J.Crew Dulphine open cardi (here, in other colors)
Shirt: The Limited sequin tee (here)
Jeans: J Brand Lovestory (here, different wash)
Shoes: CV for Target wedges
Belt: Forever 21

In all seriousness, I heart this sweater. I spotted it when it was full price on J.Crew's site but I rarely buy online because of their crazy-ridiculous shipping prices (no, I don't want to add another $100 to my cart to save $15 in your insane shipping prices. Grrr). When I went into the store after Christmas I saw it on sale for $49, but I still just wasn't biting. After many a passing thought about it, I saw it yesterday for the $49 plus 40% off so I finally bit. Yay! The color is such a great warm tone despite its boogery-ness. And with pink, it's perfect. Good thing I have a few more shirts in the same pink/mauve tone to pair it with.

Also, I realized all of the things I'm wearing were bought on a good bargain, making this outfit come to about $150 rather than the full price, which I calculated to be around $500 (that is when you consider what an original pair of CV wedges cost! OK, so I cheated.).


  1. Totally cute! I went to JCrew after Xmas and the sale racks were really picked over. You got a great deal on that cardi.

  2. You look adorable Justine! I love the color of the sweater and the sequin tee. Good to see you back again with outfits!

    So cute Justine!! You look great!

  4. Such a cute outfit! I was wondering if you would share where you got your wreath. Love that!

  5. It's Martha Stewart Home Living collection-- I purchased it before Christmas
    at Home Depot, actually! I'm sure you could still find them online. I love
    it! :)

  6. Great deal on that sweater!! I love the sparkles under it too...
