This weekend, I finally felt that cool chill to the bone at night. It's about that time to start transitioning! And that means getting excited to wear some of your favorite pieces that you haven't touched in months. Like this sleeveless trench, which for whatever reason, I keep seeing referred to as a sleeveless vest. Except vests are already sleeveless. Just pay attention, you shall see this error incessantly now also. Perhaps they mean sleeveless trench? Or trench vest? Or trench dress is another thing I've seen them called.

Regardless! It's a fun piece to have and I wish that Ann Taylor's version still existed because it's the perfect amount of structure. I realized I hadn't worn it with jeans yet, so I had to change that immediately. I'm kind of excited to wear all of my vests in general again!! Is that bad?

  1. I'm so excited to wear all my vests too, love this look.


  2. Ah, I'm so excited to wear my sleeveless trench coat again too!! I think I wore it every possible way last year so I need to start thinking of new ways on what to pair it with lol. Love this look, the purple goes great with the trench and I just love the added pop of leopard! Gorgeous girl!

  4. I love the tassel necklace & your shoes! That trench is such a great piece!

  5. I just pinned an outfit with a vest...now I am all paranoid that I labeled it a sleeveless vest in my caption!! Wouldn't that be amusing! Anyway, I LOVE the color of this top and how great it looks with leopard! Plus, that tassel necklace and any solid Portofino are pretty much a match made in fashion heaven!

    1. Phew. I just checked. I only called it a beige oversized vest. Not sleeveless. :)
