Ever since I saw this Rebecca Taylor Denim Vest, I knew I wanted to style an outfit around it. I think it is a really versatile piece that can be worn a lot of different ways. Overall, my look for this week was a bit on the casual side, but could easily work for a low key night out as well.
I chose to layer the vest over this form fitting green Reiss Dress. I think the vest adds a nice edge to the simplistic shape of the dress. I accessorized with these flat sandals from Calypso and added some color with this gold and neon necklace from Dorothy Perkins and some pattern with this Stella McCartney python bag.
For my weekend going out look I decided to mix both casual and smarter pieces. I have been a fan of these Rag & Bone Rally Cargo Jeans in Blue since they first came out many months ago. They give me a casual and dress down vibe which is why I chose to pair them with this Wildfox Love Me sweater which fits quite loosely. I kept the colour scheme neutral by adding these Marc Jacobs Nude & Black Leather Pumps.
For the accessories, I chose a Rebecca Minkoff Mini Mac in Lilac to add some colour, but not too much as it’s spring and I wanted to have a pastel tone. I also went for a Pippa Small 18kt Gold Ring to add a little dazzle, a Dorothy Perkins Cross & Heart Split Ring for some edge and then finally a Saint Laurent Antiope Polished Gold Tone Cuff to liven up the wrist if you have the sleeves rolled up a little. I actually own the bag and the sweater and they are great pieces to pair with jeans!
Spring break is a time for a little R&R and memory making adventures. Each destination creates a different experience with endless possibilities for outfit choices. I’ve chosen 4 hot Spring break destinations to show how to incorporate denim into each type of look, there’s always room for a little denim in your outfits.
Coachella is this weekend so I thought it would be appropriate to do another look. This is not a look that will just work for Coachella, but can also work for a warm weekend. Lace-up shorts are one of my favorite styles that has been brought back in the past couple of years. It is a great departure from the classic shorts and adds a bit more interest and a beachy vibe to a look than a usual pair, I believe.
I chose an affordable pair of shorts by Billabong, their Reckless shorts (similar here), because the color is a great shade of pink. The color with the lace up makes them easy to play around with for someone who is girly or more of a tomboy. I kept everything else simple with a white t shirt by T by Alexander Wang and Golden Goose sneakers because it’ll be a hot weekend with a lot of walking. But since it is a festival, I still wanted the vibe alive by adding some fringe with a Love Heals necklace and Cleobella bag. So how many of you are excited for the weekend ahead?
