Throwing on jean shorts and a basic tee in the summer is an easy go-to outfit when you're in a rush to get out the door. But wearing the same basic outfit just because it's easy is a bad habit to get into; that's why having statement pieces, like this sleeveless vest, are always a good investment. Adding this vest and some lace-up block heels take a basic summer look from casual to edgy in under ten seconds (and side note - these are the comfiest heels I've ever owned!!). I can't even count how many times I've worn this vest over various outfit combinations - it goes with everything! Wear it to the office or to brunch on a Saturday morning - you really can't go wrong. Many retailers are coming out with more sleeveless vest options in their fall lines. Check out this bright pink sleevless jacket or baby blue drapey open front vest at The Limited! I personally have my eye on both :) The "third piece" is going to be huge this fall! Happy shopping loves! xoxo
