Wardrobe In"vest"ment & A Guest Post

You know those pieces you always want to get but never actually end up buying them? The jean vest has always been one of those pieces for me, but then I saw this picture on Pinterest and just about died. See, I always thought once I bought a jean jacket, I would put it on over a dress, feel really nerdy and then just shove it back in my closet, but this look is perfection!! Now I am on a mission to get a jean vest and hopefully look at least 50% as cool as this lady looks!

Zara Sandals |  J. Crew Eyelet Dress | Proenza Schouler PS 11 Tote
P.S. I love the shoes in the original look, but I've had a hard time identifying them. They look a little like Surface To Air sandals, but they aren't. Hmmmm...

P.S.S. I'm also over at Ashley Nicole Catherine so come check it out!!!!


Happy Weekend! xoxo e

Love your version of the look! I agree, a jean vest is such a must-have right now!!!! I'm debating about DIY-ing an old jacket to get the vest!

Agreed! Love the look. I know what you mean about thinking the jean jacket/dress combo will look perfect, then feeling totally nerdy. Ha!

Yea girl, I have always LOATHED jean jackets but find myself thinking jean vests are very hip.

I also totally dig those Zara sandals!

I think the dark wash is what makes the denim vest 'work' in this outfit.
