Denim Vest with a Dress

Posted on: October 8, 2013

Another Day of Temps in the 80’s! 

I decided that I am going to take advantage of this heat wave and take

every opportunity to wear my dresses with bare legs before boot season arrives!


This dress is one from Ann Taylor Loft that I found on Ebay.

This brand is always consistent and I feel confident in purchasing it without having to try things on. 

The Vest is one I just I recently found at Cato and love to pair with dresses  or tank tops.


I am wearing a darker brown lipstick here and rather like it!

This combination of the dress with a denim vest really makes dresses more casual and perfect for a Mom on the Go


The background color in this dress is dark brown, hence the touches of brown in my necklace, belt, shoes and purse. 

Shoes are my Aerosoles mules, such a classic and I love them, easy to walk in…

Dear Readers, I love easy dresses for busy days, just one piece, a topper and accessories makes for a quick outfit. 

When I searched this dress out on ebay, i thought it would layer nicely for winter with my creme moto, brown jacket and a jean jacket.  I could also opt for a long chunky sweater for a less structured cozy look.  

I ordered just such a sweater in the Stone color  from Ebay,  and it’s perfect!  This sweater is very versatile and you may get sick of seeing me in this coming season as I love it so much!  Highly recommend a chunky boyfriend sweater for Fall/Winter.


I am grateful that I didn’t have to take migraine medicine today!!!! 

I am grateful to my youngest who touched my shoulders and saw how tense I was and massaged me!

I am grateful to my daughter for giving the dog a bath.  

I am grateful that I managed to get in a quick walk to the store before the heavy downpour began! 

I am grateful for an amazing opportunity to take a lifetime dream trip next October to Ireland!

You have been killing it with some awesome looks lately! I love everything about this outfit. Thanks for reminding me about CATO. I always forget about that store and I always find great things in there.

That’s a great outfit and suits you well, looks very comfortable. I try to imagine myself wearing your outfits (since they look so nice on you) to get more comfortable with the idea of putting together an outfit. Hurray for no migraine today! I don’t know if I ever mentioned before, but I love your gratitude section. And I’m so jealous of your dream trip you have planned!

I hope you find inspiration here and try lots of things on, switchibg things out until you find something pleasing. Taking care of yourself with fashion is a wonderful boost!

That sweater will be good in Ireland , too. Lucky you!

Great idea! My research shows layering is key to enjoy Ireland ,so most definitely on the packing trip. Second is a trench coat.

I am completely on the same page as you…there will be plenty of boot wearing days in the near future. So let’s embrace shoes and legs while we can! Well done with the Ebay find. I’ve not been brave enough to buy any clothing that I can’t try on. This fits you perfectly, and is very flattering! Very hip with the accessorizing too. I love it…the belt, shoes and bag are made for that vest.

Very pretty floral dress. I like the denim vest with it too. Ohhhh, so exciting that you’re be visiting Ireland! I bet it’s absolutely beautiful. We’re already looking forward to our (more local) getaway next July for our anniversary and are counting down the months. ha

Thank you, any vacation plans and the anticipation of them are so good for the soul!
