Casual Friday



The frequency with which I wear this vest on weekends is somewhat embarrassing.  But it really is the perfect layering piece and adds just the right amount of that rugged laid-back vibe to my look (see the other ways I've worn it here, herehere & here).  And, in my opinion, it never hurts to add some high impact jewelry - though these Capwell Co. pieces are fabulous enough to stand alone, I couldn't resist layering them together for a serious statement.






What I'm wearing:
Simply Vera Vera Wang turtleneck (on sale here), Old Navy vest (similar), Xhilaration skinnies (here or similar here), Merona booties (here), c/o Capwell Co. necklaces (here and here), R&J handbag (here), Dockers aviators (similar), Nails: Essie Berry Naughty

Jenn, definitely recommend the bag - for the price, the faux leather is really nice and it has held up quite well so far! :)

I totally agree. I've been wearing mine a lot on the weekends. It really is a great layering piece. I think they look really cute under blazers. I am wearing mine in my outfit post today too. Check it out if you get a chance! Would love to hear your thoughts. :)

I love the fancy, over-the-top jewelry with the casual vest. So chic! I have to say though you look like your legs are leather, with the pants running right into the boots!

Those necklaces are SO great. Love how you styled them!

Amber Rehm said...

Thank you so much for this post. Before 2 kids, I was such a fashionista. Now with the lack of time and tight funds my style has gone down the drain. Makes me sad :( I am having a very hard time finding the balance between fashion and mom clothes that are functional, easy to wash, not over the top dressy and cheap enough that I won't kill my children if a piece gets stained, torn, broken, scratched or lost. Ugh!! Anyway, I love that the vest dresses it down without being old or frumpy. I so have to go get my own now.

Thank goodness for being able to shop online from my phone! Lol . Love the blog- don't ever stop girl ;)

Kimberly said...

Amber,

Thank you so much for your kind words - I am glad that you've found my site helpful and I can completely relate to trying to find that fashionable & functional balance while being a mom. Feel free to email me anytime if you have questions or need help finding something! Thanks for following along :)

xo,
Kimberly
