Rule No 1 : Don't be scared to rock a vest!
It's new, you don't have one, you've never worn one, will it look right on me?
Let's do this together. I had some of the same thoughts and then I stumbled upon these adorable herringbone vests and knew that I HAD to have them for the shop and if I HAD to have them for the shop, I'd have to get over my fear and learn how to wear one as well!
And I survived! And it's actually really fun and a great addition to my Mom-robe. (My Mom Wardrobe.)
The first and most popular way to wear our herringbone vest is with a solid top underneath. I chose our Mustard Cozy Top as an example, and also threw in some brown boots, a fringe scarf and completed the look with our Black Stone Choker.
The final look I put together is the most daring but can be totally pulled off and ADORABLE, don't be afraid to try it! Pair our Herringbone Vest with a PATTERNED blouse, in this case I chose our Black & White Office Hours Blouse. LOVE IT! Since the patterns are a statement in themselves, I kept the accessories simple, just a pop of color with our Royal Blue Clutch. VOILA!
I hope the vest is a liiiitttle less intimidating after seeing the outfit inspiration and I hope you give it a shot! If you do, I'd love to see how you style it! Send a pic to firstname.lastname@example.org to receive a special coupon code!

Last year, I scoffed at the bootie trend. I admired them on everyone but myself. I think it took a year of seeing booties on other fabulous ladies before I got comfortable with trying them myself. This year I took the plunge with these bootie beauties. The key to wearing them? confidence. Booties were way out of my [...]

Fall. Let’s be honest it is my favorite. Pumpkin patches, apple cider, cooler temps and leggings. There are so many things I love about leggings; their slimming nature, the comfort factor, the way the waist stretches to hide the fact that you just downed half a pizza at lunch hiding under your chic tunic top. But like anything there [...]
