Day 29: Vested Interest

For those of you in the land of places that have actual seasons, you should know it's 83 degrees right now. Yup. That's happening. Who says spring's a couple of weeks away? It's already here in Texas! I had a completely different outfit planned out for today, there was a sweater involved and perhaps some ankle boots, obviously that would not have worked out well. Instead, I whipped out my thrifted vest and a shirt that I realized I had only worn once this challenge! Funny, how I forgot about an item when I've only go thirty to choose from -- this is clearly a sign that this challenge is just what I needed. I have so much, and I take all of that for granted when I peer into the closets (or blogs) of others. I want what they've got, and I forget about what I already have. I hadn't even put this combination together yet, so I was pretty pleased with myself last night as I stood in front of my mirror admiring my handy work while singing loudly to some Fleetwood Mac.

The more I wear this vest, the more I like it, which is good..because having something in my closet for almost two years and never wearing it isn't okay. I'm glad I threw it into the 30x30, and I'm still coming up with ways to wear it. I'm gonna go take a shower, I can't handle temperatures above 80 apparently, ha. Oh, and uno mas, uno mas, uno mas! I have no idea what I'm going to throw together for tomorrow..but I'll try to make it good!

  1. Love this outfit - so cute! Those are awesome jeans.

  2. Cute outfit! I really like your shoes. I tried on a similar pair recently but didn't really like them that much. If they had the contrasting piping like yours, I def would have got them!

    1. Thanks, Inge. I really like them, but I don't wear them when I have to walk a ton, the sole really isn't meant for that. They are fun though!

  3. that vest is seriously fantastic!


  4. I love this vest! Such a cool piece. LOVE Fleetwood Mac too...

  7. i wanted a vest so badly yesterday! i stepped out to take photos before work in my denim jacket and thought "this would be the perfect time for a denim vest, darnit!" so now i'm officially looking for one. the vest makes the outfit feel more put together without adding extra heat when it's already burning outside.


  8. Love your outfit. I find your blog by Jess (, i'm so jealous that your wearing a top!

  9. I have so much to say here... I LOVE that vest, and it looks super cute with the purple top. Also, Fleetwood Mac? Yes please, forever and ever. Also, 83 degrees? Holy moly! And I thought San Francisco had ridiculous winter weather.

  10. Love the entire look. That is a great color on you. I also want a fun little vest to wear.
