Our Take On - Getting Vested

After we both in-vest-ed in these similar items a couple months ago, it was about time they made their debut. Read on to see how we chose to premier our respective white vests!
Have a wonderful weekend!

I got this vest about a two months ago at Zara and it comes with a great ROI! It's super versatile. In fact, I actually wore it with jeans to work and then changed into shorts when I got home since it was 99,999 degrees. I could also imagine wearing it with my black tuxedo pants {when it gets a bit cooler} or those floral lovelies you saw last week.
Also getting a lot of mileage? These Sam Edelman sandals. They go with everything! And add a bit of flair in the process. It was also a nice little treat to resurrect this ancient Rory Beca silk top from my closet {though with the vest on you can't see the cute roped strap detailing :( } All in all, the hubs should be happy because nothing I am wearing is that "new."

It was a wee bit windy!

This outfit is definitely a change for me...this is about as "office-y" as I get. When I was wearing this outfit the other night, I felt more like Caitlin than I did myself. But nevertheless, I loved the outfit. This J.Crew skirt - with an awesome color combo - is, surprisingly, I might add, a piece I've come to love. To continue to the mature {in my definition of the word} feel of this outfit, I added the Forever 21 vest. After purchasing it a few months ago while at school, it was about time I wore it. I've put it on {and proceeded to take it off} many times, never being able to find quite the right occasion or outfit for it. But I think this works. While this look is outside my typical boho/hippie/eclectic realm, it was a nice and welcomed change. Sometimes you just gotta switch things up for some unexpected and adventurous wardrobe satisfaction.
