Outfit Post: The Vest

Aug 17, 2015

Last week my little guy went back to school. The first {sad} sign that Summer is winding down which frankly, is the worst. I am not even remotely ready for it to be over. I’ll take a couple more months of pool days, super late sunsets and backyard barbecues – thank you very much. Okay so I know that’s not going to happen but as long as it’s 90+ degrees outside, I’ll stick with the summer clothes. I may start doing a little shopping for fall but I won’t be dressing that way for a little bit longer.

Maje Embroidered Vest * Summer Style Inspiration (9)Maje Vest – found at the Gilt Pop-Up Sale | Lace Tank c/o The Mint Julep Boutique | Joe’s Jeans Denim Shorts | Hipanema Bracelet – also found at the Gilt Pop-Up Sale | Banana Republic Leather Tote (old but LOVE this one, seen before here) | Ray-Ban 55m Aviators | Dolce Vita Wedges (old but love these, seen before here)

Thankfully I’ll be able to transition my best buy of the summer to fall pretty seamlessly. I stumbled upon this Maje vest at the Gilt Pop-Up Sale and snagged it for, no joke, $30. I think it was originally something like $600. Yup, best deal ever. I feel like it’s a shopping trophy which is totally sad I know but seriously, it was a true sale victory. I may not have found the Kitchen Aid mixer for next to nothing but I did find this vest. Unfortunately, only one makes cookies so maybe the mixer does win.

I wore this layered look for a dinner with friends mixing it a couple new finds with some old as mold favorites. Inevitably I ended up spilling on both of the newer things – the vest and this lace tank. Condiments are not my friends. And since I hate to take this new favorite out of rotation for too long, I headed straight down to the basement to clean this puppy up. Yeah, yeah, yeah I know it needs to be dry-cleaned – I’m not a total dummy. Earlier this year, Dryel hooked me up with a bunch of their dry-clean at home kits which came through in the clutch to tackle a massive ketchup stain. The kits are super easy to use, really inexpensive (under $10, take that dry cleaning bill) and work with your dryer. I just treated that stain, threw the vest in the dryer bag and tossed it into the dryer on tumble. In 30 minutes it was good as new and back in my closet ready for another week of wear.
