I spent the weekend on the North Shore of Chicago with my sisters and mom. We did lots of eating, laughing, talking and wait for it…shopping! I wasn’t looking for anything in particular. But sometimes, if there’s good retail mojo, clothes seem to find me. After poking around in a couple of boutiques, we ended up at Nordstrom Rack where I found what may be the perfect layering jacket. It met all my criteria: black, a lighter fabric and a modern cut. Plus it was a steal of a deal at under $50! I will rock this stunner all year long-it’s the perfect piece to pair now with jeans & a tee, over summer dresses or with pants for work. The moral to this story? Keep an open mind while shopping, you never know what finds may find you!
