Growing up, Summer was by far my favorite season. I was always in water; pool, beaches, lakes- you name it, I was probably swimming in it. Nowadays, it’s probably a toss up between Fall and Spring, Summer is just too hot in Texas and I don’t have as much time to swim. Not to mention, it gets really hard to dress cute when your every instinct is telling you to remove as many layers as possible. Finding lightweight, breezy but still chic pieces is key.
If you’re like me at all you love a good layered outfit; reaching for a blazer or cape just completes a look for you. This is where vests come in, having that extra layer without the extra warmth gives you that “complete” outfit without much added fabric. I’m especially a fan of vests in the longer variety like this beauty from The Lily James Collection. I prefer longer length vests for a few reasons:
Blush and white couldn’t be more “of the moment” and this darling color combo has quickly become a go-to for me. Paired with the neutral colors of my snakeskin mules and cross body bag this vest gets to be the star of the show.
