Wearing a vest for the first time

I have never worn a long vest. I actually owned a short vest once! The longer ones make me feel like this. The nice thing about a collaboration is that you can choose something, and sometimes I like to choose something to try. To see if it works for me. Because if you buy it and you find out you actually don’t like to wear it, it ends up in The Bad Buy Book! That is good for Shelbee and me, but it still is a shame! Lol.

A vest on a pencil skirt

I wear this pencil skirt almost always with brown and sometimes blue. I always thought it was a bit of a difficult color. But lately I saw a lot of black and white with ochre and I was inspired to try it too. I have also seen a lot of very nice sweaters in this color, but when I wear ochre in my face I look very sick. So let’s not do so! But it is a beautiful Fall color. I also got to choose a top and you know I love wraped stuff. Wrap skirt, wrap dress, wrap top, wrap with lots of guacamole! Lol. So I choose a basic black wrap top. I am wearing the grey boots with it because the vest is not black, it’s dark grey. The grey boots are somewhat softer with this outfit. Of course I’ve adapted the colors of the accesories. And check out this lovely necklace! I have it for years now, and it’s still one of my favorites.vestvestvestvestvestvestvestvest

    The long vest with a pencil skirt makes for a flattering and slimming silhouette. You’ve done a great job in putting together a fashionable and chic outfit.

      Thank you, I wasn’t sure about it. Because I never wear a vest.

    I adore this look Nancy, possibly will have to use in my style steal! Ochre is certainly the colour of the season, I’ve bought a pair of wide leg crops that will be a great starting point. x thanks for sharing this great look. Have a super week Nancy. x

    where can i get that necklace?!?! if you wouldn’t have told me you were wearing a vest i don’t think i would have known, since it went so well with your shirt. it looked like one piece. i have a long vest that i won from a blog, and i have yet to give it a go.

    I remember that I had long vest many many years ago. And never again. I don’t know why. It’s great piece. I love how you style it. The bracelet was a nice touch too. Thank you for linking up with My Red Carpet.

      Perhaps you ve got the same feeling as I have when I wear them.

    I am a fan of gray as a colour, as I find it easier to wear than black for some reason, I also like how you have matched the colours, looks fantastic #brillblogs@_karendennis

    • September 28, 2017 / 12:09 pm

      Thank you very much! Yes, grey is somewhat softer then black isn’t it!

  10. September 28, 2017 / 9:51 pm

    This is a great colour combination Nancy, one I’d definitely wear myself. The pattern on the skirt is a lovely addition making me covet it even more – I so love that colour! A great transitionl look, fabulous!

    I love the long vest and the way you styled it! That mustard skirt is just beautiful and the gray boots really are a knock out! Thanks for joining our Style Wise Link Up party. I hope you will join us again next week!
