A Vest

 Dress: Amour Vert, Vest: H&M, Boots: Ross (c/o), Accessories: Karen Walker sunglasses, Forever 21 hat, Free People sequin crossbody bag

This vest is an old H&M purchase based on a whim. A sporadic shopping splurge I have gotten my wear out of (1, 2, 3, 4, 5...and then some). I didn't even realize I have worn this piece as often as I have. It seems so ordinary among the other things in my closet yet, it has been represented quite often. The vest has done well as a layering piece and also in making outfits more visually interesting. Despite being an inexpensive item in the wardrobe, I definitely feel I got a big bargain out of it.

  11. I love this look! I love pairing long blazers or sweaters over tighter dresses to make me feel more comfortable but I love the idea of a vest! Thanks for sharing!
