the denim vest.

Friday, June 20, 2014






||Kohls MUDD denim vest| J.Crew Factory striped bateau top| Alex and Ani gold initial bracelet| Target tortoise sunnies | Express earrings | Born Pretty Store necklace c/o | Born Pretty Store cross bracelet c/o | Born Pretty Store leaf bracelet c/o | Bearpaw jacinta sandals c/o| Express white shorts || 

The first person I ever saw with a denim vest was Mary-Katherine of The Gold Hatted Lover. I found it while rummaging through her closet when we were intern-roomies two summers ago. At first I just thought it was cute, but as soon as I saw her wearing it I was like, "Yep, I need that in my closet." I have wanted one ever since, but for some reason never purchased it until this Spring! I did not want to spend a fortune since I wasn't sure how much I would actually wear it. Most of the ones I liked were over $80, but eventually found this one at Kohls for less than $30! If you have been on the fence, I highly suggest you add one to your wardrobe! Kohls has a bunch for under $70 if you want some options.

Also, most of the jewelry in this post is from  Born Pretty Store. They make a lot of my every day pieces, such as the cross bracelet. Definitely check them out if you are looking for good, but cheap, jewelry. You can use code DST10 for 10% off, too!

Also also, it was incredibly windy when we were taking this pictures. It was annoying, but eventually you just have to go with it ;).



I would love it if you would follow me on GFC or Bloglovin'!
