Decree Utility Jacket c/o jcpenney | Ralph Lauren striped cardi | Sunny Leigh silk rosette blouse (Macy’s clearance a few years ago) | Lucky Brand Sundown jeans | Tipper Braided Hobo c/o Handbag Heaven | Revlon Colorburst lipstick in Fuchsia 

Meet my favorite safari vest’s cousin, the utility jacket. I’ve very nearly worn that vest to death, so I thought she could use a break. When I was at jcpenney a couple weeks ago shopping for an upcoming collabo (stay tuned) I came across this cute little number in the juniors department. I usually don’t venture into junior territory since everything’s cut for 2×4’s, but jackets I can do.

I will wear this utility jacket at least once a week. Consider yourself warned.

  1. Check the clearance rack. I had my eye on this jacket and went back to get it and it was 19.99 plus I had a $10.00 off a $10.00 purchase. Score so I bought new earings as well!

  2. Love the jacket, especially paired with the stripes underneath. I think the *real* star here is your lipstick though…amazing. Your skin is looking flawless these days too!

  3. OMG, I’ve been obsessing over the safari vest for days (weeks really, but that sounds embarassing)….I’ve googled, even ebay’d. I’m buying this asap. Can I ask how the Juniors sizing compares to regular people sizing? I’m a small in women’s sizes, but worried I might need a medium. Help?

  4. Love this vest! If I remember correctly, the vest you speak of is the one from Old Navy? I have the same one. And . . . I’m wearing it today. And I wear it all the time. Should we indulge in a little ONVA? (Old Navy Vest Anonymous) ;-)

  5. I have a utility jacket & cargo vest and I’m so glad to know I’m not the only one wearing them non-stop! They are so easy to layer over other pieces and perfect for fall – love this look :)
