Tough and Soft


Top: Old Navy (shop...on sale for $13 right now!)
Vest: Old Navy (shop)
Jeans: Gap
Wedges: Target (shop)
Belt: H&M
Necklace: won from LuLu's (shop)

There's something fun to me about an army vest with a floral top.  Army inspired pieces make me think kinda tough while florals tend to make me think softer, and I think I'm liking the juxtaposition.

Anyway, as you're reading this, I could very well be at Buffalo Exchange, and I'm excited.  Seeing all these bloggers show off their thrifting finds has inspired me to venture out of my beloved chain stores bit by bit.  Are you proud of me?  Wish me luck!

Today my friend and I will eat Pho, come out smelling a little like B.O. (cuz you KNOW Pho makes your clothes and hair smell...), and head over to Buffalo Exchange.  Then I get to help her shop her own closet to hopefully discover more outfit possibilities!  Look out for a post on that sometime.

Anyone up to anything fun this weekend?

  9. The juxtaposition of your floral top with the military inspired vest make this a great look! I know thinner belts are also in style now, but I really love wide belts like yours, they're definitely a classic.

  13. Oh Audrey. I'm sad for two reasons- one I just did a post on this vest and how different bloggers have styled it, I wish I had found this blog sooner, so I could feature your photos- you look great. Also I paid full price for this vest ($34), I should have known better, Old Navy & Gap items always get crazy mark down.

  14. Thanks, Liv!  Thanks for stopping by and for following.  This vest IS totally versatile.  I'm so glad I bought it!  I'm trying to space out the amount I wear it, otherwise I'd just wear it every single day!

  15. I've been following you for a few months now and I'm catching up in your older posts. Your Pho comment is too true. I can always tell when my son has stopped at Noodle 21!
