how to style a vest part 1: casual weekend

Wanted to wish a happy (late) mother’s day to all the mamas out there!

Today’s post is a reader request. My friend Pam owns a black vest but needed help figuring out how to style it. Because I’m a visual person, I wanted to SHOW my styling ideas for this vest instead of just describing them. I do not own a vest like hers so I used the only vest I have as a substitute.

My idea for this outfit was something casual, easy, comfortable. An outfit that you can wear on the weekend for running errands or thrifting (which is what I like to do, hehe). A white v-neck tee with the vest worn over, a pair of comfortable jeans rolled up a little bit, your favorite shoulder bag or purse, and flats or flip flops.

Check it out and let me know what you think…

Thanks for reading and stay tuned for the next installment in “how to style a vest,” which will be a bit more “dressed up.”

Top: Forever 21 V-neck white tee + OLD vest
Bottom: David Kahn Jeans, old from ebay

Bag: Vintage Coach shoulder bag, thrifted
Shoes: Lands End suede ballet flats, also worn: my lovely worn in Rainbow Flip Flops (gifted from my husband many years ago)
