My New Vest Friend

Ok, ok, if you haven’t noticed already, I am completely obsessed with my denim vest. To be honest, I didn’t really think these would ever make a come back, and I definitely didn’t think I would ever be so enamored with them if they ever did. BUT, I suppose stranger things have happened! And so with that, here are a few reasons why I love it so-an ode to my denim vest if you will:

1. It’s denim, and denim rocks

2. It’s an easy way to change up an outfit

3. It’s the ideal piece to layer over a maxi or sundress, and goes with just about anything (with the exception of same-colored denim bottoms, of course)

4. It’s the perfect way to dress down that dress that is just a little too dressy for normal wear

5. The frayed edges give it little edge making it the perfect partner for something super sweet (like lace!)

6. It reminds me of the ’80’s (pretty much the best decade ever)

7. The cropped styling makes it super flattering as it hits at the smallest part of your waist

8.  It’s not just a piece of clothing, it’s also an accessory

Denim Vest:  Macy’s (recent) similar here, here, and here

Chartreuse Lace Dress:  Cotton On

Belt:  Mossimo for Target (old)

Bracelets:  Gold w/ Heart oiajules via Etsy, Gold with Pink Macy’s (recent)

Watch:  Michael Kors via Nordstrom Rack

Caged Wedges:  Crown Vintage via DSW (last summer)

So not only did I want to give a shout out to my denim vest in this post, but I also wanted to tell you how HAPPY I am that we now have Cotton On in our market.  Cotton On is an Australian based company that my little brother introduced me to years ago when my family was visiting him in Australia.  And let me tell you, I fell in LOVE with it while we were there.  So when it recently came to the states, I was ecstatic.  I guess you could say that Cotton On  is similar to H&M, but a little more on the hipster side-a beachy, cool Australia feel, if you will.  And  not only that, but the prices are fantastic, they have tons of great color (my lace dress above came in about 5 other colors) and lots of really fun accessories.  So if you have one near you, make sure and check out-it will be well worth your time.  And don’t forget to pick yourself up a denim vest if you haven’t already-it will no doubt become a go-to summer staple in your closet. 

And good news!  The weekend is almost here!!  🙂 Happy  Thursday, everyone!!
