One of my favorite items in my closet is this black sleeveless vest. Whenever I wear it I feel chic, on trend and well put together. Like my collection of kimonos, a having at least one sleeveless black vest in your wardrobe is a must. This kind of vest is a timeless garment that can be dressed up or down. It can also be styled year-round.

On this particular day, I styled the vest with one of my go-to summer tops, as well as my favorite pair of jeans. Becuase I was headed out for a day date with hubs, I decided to wear a red lip. A nice pop of color on the lips is the easiest way to kick a basic outfit up a few notches. Adding an armful of bangles or beaded bracelets is also another way to amp up a basic outfit. So, I pulled out my beautiful Kambaba Jasper bracelet, c/o Joseph Nogucci, and layered it with a pair of bronze beaded bracelets I’ve had for years.
Hubs was happy that I finally decided to style my latest pair of platform flats. He picked them out for me a while back and I’m so glad he did. I LOVE them! I’m telling you, platform flats and oxfords have become “my thing” this season. As I mentioned previously, I don’t wear heels that often. However, I like to have a little height every now and then. Opting for a pair of shoes with a slight platform is a nice compromise.
So tell me, do you like how I styled my sleeveless vest? Do you have one in your closet? Let me know!
