My love of vests started just a few years ago. Prior to that I just didn't know what to do with them. Now I wear them all the time! I'm not sure what changed. Something about moving to LA just unlocked the secret of vests for me I guess - haha! Now they're a major part of my layering wardrobe. This particular sweater vest might seem like more of a holiday staple, but I wanted to show that it can be transitioned into warmer weather too. By layering it over a sleeveless dress, you instantly add interest (and a print) to an otherwise kind of boring outfit. Throw on a gold and black metallic scarf and you're ready to take on the world...or the rooftop bar. You know, whatever you happen to be trying to do that night.
