Vest Weather

Vest: Dena Products (Nordstrom) (option, option) | Top: J Crew | Bracelet: Forever 21 (option) | Purse: Kate Spade | Jeans: 7 for all Mankind (option) | Boots: Coach

It's funny because last season, I bought this vest on the eve of spring, so I didn't get to enjoy it. I ended up only wearing it once here before the weather warmed up. This year, I wanted to make sure to bring it out early. I honestly don't really understand the idea around vests, but I'll say that today was perfect "vest weather." It kept me quite warm - if not *too warm* - the lack of sleeves evened out my body temp. I had a feeling I'd be too hot to wear it indoors all day long, so I was sure to wear something that could function on its own without the vest. I adore this shirt. It's just a tee shirt, but better. I love the stripes, I love the fit, I love the necklace neckline. I decided to go with white jeans today because I rarely, if ever, do white jeans with boots, but yet I love it when I see other people do it. So why don't I do it? No idea. Perhaps this will get that ball rolling.

You really have no idea how excited I am to write this post, to take these photos this morning, to wear something that didn't come out of a suitcase. It's so fun! I wish blogging was my day job... except with my real life salary :) Otherwise, how'd I be able to shop?!
