The weather here in Orange County has been really mild (it was 85ºF the other day), so I apologize in advance to anyone living in frigid climates — I hope it warms up for you soon! That’s why I’ve been able to wear sleeveless options such as this long black Topshop vest (as you’ll also witness on my Instagram). I paired the vest with an H&M faux-wrap dress (which are generally great for nursing mamas such as myself), my Tory Burch double zip tote, and comfy Kate Spade black suede pumps.
My signature red lip makes me feel instantly put-together and a top bun is one of my quickest out-the-door hairstyles.
I recently heard a good tip on wearing a sleeveless vest: have the article of clothing underneath it pop out just a bit over your shoulders. For colder climates, sleeveless vests can act as a layering piece underneath heavier outerwear — or you can wear it on top of a sweater, making it a versatile closet staple year-round. I also love the longer ones, because they hide some not-so-glamorous imperfections on the back of my legs when worn with a shorter dress. Not to mention, they also make you feel like a boss.
Have you seen my Shop sections above? I regularly update my Women’s, Men’s, Baby, Maternity, & Home sections with items I either currently use or would love to try and think my Bond Girls would enjoy as well!
