Denim Vest Take Two

Denim outwear is timeless and fabulous.  This is not my first post dedicated to the denim vest (check the other post out here) and I don’t think it will be my last (sorry I’m not sorry).  I love this piece because it is perfect for layering, enhancing an outfit and adding a little spice to any ensemble.  Throw a denim vest over a dress, pair it with some more denim or let it stand alone as top, however you decide to wear it make sure you rock it with confidence and it will undoubtedly be spectacular.

The vest is no longer an accent piece or accessory, but instead the main attraction

Summer Head Scarf

I am slightly obsessed with scarves!  It is actually kind of shocking that this is my first post dedicated to them.  I live in scarves in the Fall, Winter and Spring but have had a hard time incorporating them into my ensembles in the stifling summer heat until now.  The easy and perfect for summer solution: the head scarf!  Why I have not embraced the head scarf sooner I do not know.  There are so many ways to rock a head scarf allowing you to elevate your look to a whole new level.  The gorgeous scarf featured in today’s post that inspired me to experiment and ultimately embrace the head scarf was a gift from none other than Tadashi Shoji.  Not only was my interview with him life changing, this gift was as well.  The head scarf adds vibrance to any outfit making it the perfect finishing touch!  As I plan to incorporate this into as many looks as possible, I highly recommend you experiment and find the wrap that suits you best!

Can’t Get Over Overalls

I have to admit the last time I wore overalls was when I was in grade school, but boy do I miss them!  As I get older (it’s almost my birthday) it is refreshing to remember that fashion and trends are not ageist and do not discriminate.  What matters when it comes to fashion and personal style is that it reflects you, your mood, the person you want to be that day and is, of course, flattering.  With all of this in mind, I can’t wait to embrace overalls and pay homage to the days when things were less complicated and comfort was all that mattered.  For years I have been in the market for the perfect pair of short overalls and while my search is (sadly) still ongoing I think this is truly the season I will rekindle my love with this classic wardrobe staple of the 90s.

These overalls are my dream! Love the casual look & textured tee.

Perfect way to dress up overalls is pairing them with heels, blouse & blazer.  Unexpected and fabulous!

A great way to make overalls your own is by adding a statement necklace and an unexpected pop of color

Jean Vest

My new favorite accessory that isn’t really an accessory is the denim vest.  Adding a denim vest to any of your “go to” outfits is the perfect way to update your look and an some edge to your wardrobe.  You can seriously do no wrong! I recommend experimenting with washes (dark or light), studs, rips, or frayed edges and of course layering to reach denim perfection.
