This denim vest is my new favorite piece, but it’s really not new at all. It used to be a child’s denim jacket with a large stain on the sleeve; I really had no choice but to cute the sleeves off because it wouldn’t fit otherwise. And it was free, which is always a pro. I wasn’t every very partial to polka dots but this dress was too darling to ignore. I love knits and it was inexpensive so I thought I’d try something new. I had the same mindset when I purchased these sneakers. They’re really basic and versatile and also so inexpensive, and I don’t have any other casual shoes to wear. So I guess this outfit is the beginning of my new expanding wardrobe. It’s time to step outside the box a little.
