Since I naturally gravitate towards more tailored pieces, I tend to have a difficult time in the warmer months putting outfits together that are both comfortable & polished. So, this denim vest has become my new favorite layering piece because it adds just the right amount of structure that I crave with summer basics, but I can still wear it on 80-degree days without getting overheated. And how amazing is this quilted bag? I’ve always said that I’ll never own a Chanel (as beautiful as they are, I could never spend that much) but this one has that same classic style and is just over $30!

I have been on a hunt on denim vest. I had one in my hands at Target and decided to wait and the next day, it was all gone.
Love this outfit from head to toe!

LOVE your hair! I am hoping to get a similar cut in a few weeks, and hopefully this time I wont chicken out! Totally hear you on the Chanel bag, but if I had the money I think its the one thing i would run to splurge on! Have a great weekend!

I usually just throw my denim vest on top of my outfit to top if off, love how you made it part of the entire look by buttoning the top and putting a necklace OVEr it…so cute!

I simply cannot get enough of my denim vest lately! I find myself reaching for it, but have to remind myself that my readers probably don't want to see that thing again… Love how you layered the necklace over the collar. Great look!
Amy Shaughnessy says
I'm with you on the whole layering thing. I used to hate fall/winter because I never knew what to wear and then it quickly became my favorite because the layering possibilities are endless. It's so hard to layer in Louisiana in summer! But I love the look. Love the necklace over the vest!

Love the pleats in that skirt
Kamikaze Nadel says
I love this skirt!
You look lovey! I love the combination of denim vest and pleated skirt.
I like how you layered the necklace under the collar of the vest. But I'm not sure I could rock a denim vest, let alone in the summer! I tend to stick to the basics when its so warm.
Leyla Wright says
I love the look, especially the colour of the skirt!
Allie Emme says
I have the same dilemma with finding comfy and polished clothes to wear during the summer months! I'm not a t-shirt at all.
