I bought this ruffle shell last year and have only worn it once. I was organizing my closet the other day and decided to make wearing this a priority.

Having completely run out of ideas for how to style it, I held it up against everything in my closet and found its match in the J. Crew dauphine jacket. I have to say, I really love them together.

Do you normally build your outfit around one item or does it come together more organically?
