How great is that double breasted sweater jacket? As I was shuffling past the Forever 21 storefront this weekend, I saw a similar jacket. I went in and started hunting for them on the racks. I went back to the display section to find the mannequin wearing my beloved jacket, and of course, it was nowhere to be found. My husband asked me what I was so anxious to find and I kept telling him "they have a double breasted knit blazer somewhere and I have to find it". At this point, I am sure he thought I had lost my mind. When I got home, I hopped on my computer and felt vindicated as I found jacket below on their website. I also found some other goodies to make this outfit work for less:
Casual Knit Blazer - Forever 21 - $29.80
Scoop Neck Striped Top - Forever 21 - $10.90
Flat Front Skinny Pants - Forever 21 - $22.80

Auburn Patent Pump - Payless Shoesource - $22.99
Baby Pearl And Ribbon Necklace - Charlotte Russe - $12.50
