Vest Dressed

September 30, 2015

I’m so excited to be sharing this amazing vest from Free People. As my mom would say, “That’s a piece you will have the rest of your life.” All wool, classic, and tailored: it’s, the perfect investment piece, especially for this season when long vests and trench coats are so in style. Be sure to check out Free People for all their amazing fall pieces. I want it all! I wore my vest as a dress with my tie blouse this time since it’s not quite cool enough to pair it with pants. I love that it provides that versatility! You can rest assured I’ll be styling it all fall and winter. I did realize the first time I sat down that next time I’ll have to pin it to save myself an embarrassing slip…

I have the awesome opportunity to speak at my work today about blogging. I’ve never talked for 30-45 minutes in front of 60+ people. I’m nervous! Wish me luck. free people vest, bow blouse, black heeled booties, fringe bagfree people vest, bow blouse, black fringe bag free people vest, bow blouse, fringe bag free people vest, bow blouse, heeled booties, fringe bag, karen walker sunglasses 1 free people vest, bow blouse, heeled booties, fringe bag, karen walker sunglasses free people vest, bow blouse, heeled booties, fringe bag free people vest, bow blouse, karen walker sunglasses, fringe bag

    I had to laugh at the ‘pin’ bit in order to save embarrassment! I know exactly what you mean. Your Mum is wise, this is a great investment and looks wonderful with the boots.
