Beauty & Style with Jill {week II}

Welcome back to my weekly new column, where I share my favorite ensembles from the prior week to help you create new looks with all the clothes you already own.
My first look is directly inspired by this sweater jacket that I originally found on Pinterest. 
I fell in love with it months ago.  But the jacket was just too expensive for me to rationalize buying it.   I waited and waited for a sale.  Hoping it would still be available. When the email arrived that everything was 40% off I quickly looked the sweater up and the site said sold-out.  BOO!  But I decided to take a chance and drive over to our new store here in town.  I showed the salesperson the jacket and she said, “we have ONE left in the store”.  It was not only on sale but was already marked down.   Major score!   It was in my size and fit me perfectly.   This will be a staple in my closet for sure!
