Layering Pieces

Yesterday I shared top posts from the past year in honor of my blogiversary. Today I wanted to share a personal favorite post that I hadn’t published yet! Although this outfit was snapped in the fall, I love that it would be versatile enough for almost three seasons, with lots of other ways to style the suede vest beyond jeans and a T. (In fact, here is the suede vest with a skirt.) This vest was a bit out of the norm for me, as it’s more boho than my typical preppy/classic look. But I think it’s always good to have a few pieces in your closet that can change the look and feel of others pairings. This vest elevates jeans and black shirt from bleh to boho-wow!

You might be noticing that my hair seems a bit longer here than in other photos you’ve seen. If so, you’re right about that! I purchased extensions to use in wedding photos and have had fun playing with them in everyday life. There are a lot of good wig/extension shops in the Chicago area and once I started talking about my extensions I’ve heard lots of other brides-to-be, etc., shop them for their hairstyles. I won’t bore you with more details now, but I feel a blog post coming on!
