Recessionista: Utilitarian Sweet


Get ready for khaki and nude and beige and blush to make a major comeback this spring. This is a good trend in theory, but need my nudes to be feminine.

This Simply Vera cinched jacket by Vera Wang -- on sale for $60.99 -- just fits the bill. I really love the cut, the style and the detail of the bow which is not too cutesy. There's something about a painter's smock silhouette that always makes me excited. Pair this with a nice pair of leggings, tunic or a pretty dress.

Remember: Buy Simply Vera quickly because all of her cute stuff flies out of the store!
