Trench Vest

trenchvest1

Another Monday! Okay, so I totally thought this was a vest and after seeing it online, I realized it is actually a dress. I bought the petite length, so this being a dress will probably not be happening! I paired it with this tank, which is slowly becoming one of my favorites! Also added a bucket bag (love the shape and comfort of these!) and some colored sandals! It’s my birthday this week, so weird. I will be turning 26 on Wednesday and I plan on just spending some time with family & friends. Also, I have been doing the fishtail quite a bit lately as I have been a bit lazy with curling and I can do this braid in just a few minutes now!

    Wow, NO snow!! I love how you styled this “dress” 🙂 I would have to wear it as a vest too, but I almost think it’s cuter like that! The color of those shoes are so stinkin cute. Might have to purchase… 🙂

    I can’t remember when the last time I see you posting WITHOUT a coat or jacket so this is such a refreshing look from you! I love that you managed to use the dress as a long vest, what a brilliant idea.

    Happy 26th birthday, gosh you make me feel so old. LOL! Hope you have a marvellous celebration!

    This is a very stylish look. The elongated vest, right on trend. Though the vest is long, it’s not cutting off your leg line. I think your legs are looking long & lean. As for the sandals, so beautiful. Such a rich jewel tone. Might I add, 4eva21 did an amazing job with that bucket bag. It most certainly exceeds it price point. The overall look….hot!
