Spring Camo

Jacket: Gap (sold out but similar here) , / Jeans: Old Navy (old) / Heels: H & M / Tee: Vintage J. Crew / Bag: Kate Spade Maryanne (on sale now!) / Necklace: Christmas Present

I wasn't sure about buying and wearing a camo jacket until I Google searched images of "camo jacket style" and saw tons of stylish and even Parisian chic ways to wear it (like all black with cat eye sunnies).  I have seen it on some of my favorite bloggers like Blair, and also on the site Suburban Faux-Pas and fell in love with their way of styling it. Then the fact that Gap had only a few left with an extra 30% off helped me commit. I wasn't sure initially about my spring purchase of camo jeans and find I wear those constantly. Lesson learned here: If you buy something and find you have to wear it immediately - it is a keeper. If you buy something and find it hanging in your closets a few weeks later - return it - you are probably NOT going to wear it to make it worth the purchase. sometimes we fall in love with an item because it is amazing (or on sale) but find it is not practical or work with our existing wardrobe.  I always leave the tags on until I wear something so that if I later realize that it really doesn't fit in with my lifestyle, it can be returned! Do you find yourself doing this too?
