the beautiful things


{things i wore} draped vest


If I could, I'd wear this vest every day–eventually someone would try to stop me from being so repetitive but really it's the sentiment that counts. I'm sure you know what a perfect knit feels like–so soft and cozy without being itchy or too heavy–and that's exactly what Vkoo managed to capture with their cashmere. I've worn this piece in the winter but right now I'm content to throw it over a light shirt and just head outside.

{things i wore} eyelet pencil skirt


Sandy earth tones are one of the easiest color palettes to work with. When layered together not only do they match effortlessly, they complement each other too. This skirt is one of my favorite hues, a purple so deep that it’s almost brown. I also can't get enough of this cashmere drape vest. It’s amazingly soft, falls just right, and is a perfectly neutral color. Plus it is light enough to wear on just about any day that isn’t sweltering and yet still keeps you comfortable indoors where temperatures always seem to vary.
