So the other day I was looking in my closet and couldn’t find anything to wear! Thinking “I have nothing!” Just like pretty much every girl right? So I’m just trying a bunch of random things on. I love layers! So if its cold enough outside the first thing I grab is a jacket and try to go off of that for an outfit. Well I found a jacket that I love and hasn’t been worn in awhile so I felt I needed to rekindle our relationship ha! Here is a similar jacket I chose to wear with this outfit.
Next step for me is to find a top to wear under this. I tried so many on. Some seemed to dull but when I tried to put something bold with this it just seemed like to much and looked like I tried a little to hard. Which in reality I am trying hard hahaha! Anyways I paired it with this light pink and white striped shirt and I loved it together but it just felt like it was missing something. It still seemed a little to plain for me. Here is a similar shirt from the same store I got mine at.
So because this felt so plain I tried on a bunch of undershirts with it. Pretty much a ton of button ups. My plaid ones, my chambray one and some other colored ones. But they all felt a little uncomfortable in the sleeves because it had so many layers. Also It didn’t completely satisfy me. I still wasn’t in love with the look and I didn’t want to walk around all day feeling uncomfortable with the sleeves having so many layers. So I though to myself, “how about a vest!” It doesn’t have sleeves so it wouldn’t bother me and it will still add just what I wanted to make this look complete! I added a denim vest to this look and I fell in love! It was the perfect accent piece to give this outfit just what I was looking for! Here is a similar denim vest!
The denim I put with this outfit was pretty easy to decide on. I found the best pair of denim to match my vest so it wasn’t two totally different denim colors cause that could look a little tacky. It wasn’t a super perfect match, cause what denim really is anymore? But it was close enough to pull this outfit off! Here is a similar pair of denim. It is the same brand as the one I am wearing but not the exact same one.
I put these with my metallic shoes from Vic Italy. It looked so great with this outfit. I feel like the metallic just gave it a little something more and matched great with the hardware on all the denim. I’ve had these shoes for awhile now. (Well I’ve had pieces to this whole outfit for awhile.) But here are some similar metallic shoes I found that look the most like mine. More metallic options are also posted in my previous post “Shine With Metallic”
To complete this look I already had my favorite handbag out, and it went perfectly with it! Get it here.
Here is the completed look! Thanks for reading this post. Hope you enjoyed it 🙂
