TOUGHEN UP

TOPSHOP SWEATER, FOREVER 21 DRESS WORN AS SKIRT, KENNA T VEST, TIGHTS FROM TARGET, SAM EDELMAN 'WILMA' WEDGES, PROENZA SCHOULER 'PS1' BAG, HOUSE OF HARLOW 'MARIE' SUNGLASSES, MICHAEL KORS WATCH

I found this leather vest while browsing around at Nordstrom one afternoon. Last one, my size, on sale... everyone knows those 3 signs can only mean one thing - fate/must buy. On top of that, I fell in love with its super soft texture and how it drapes naturally oh so naturally on my body. It's versatile for layering (as worn here) and toughens up an otherwise feminine look. Expect to see this vest make multiple appearances - it made its way into my suitcase for a weekend in SF, followed by a very brief trip to NYC. Hope everyone has a great weekend!
