I think a suited vest is a very good alternative to a blazer.
I’ve already got several black vestes, so now I would like a navy one. I’ve got my eye on this classic navy one from Helmut Lang.
I wear it like I would wear a blazer, but the ekstra benefit is that you can also easily wear it in warmer weather eg. over a dress and look more suited up. Compared to wearing a blazer it’s more obvious when you change the top underneath and you can play with that in your looks.
I like to mix the more high end brands with the cheaper highstreet ones. The cropped jeans from Weekday, a top from &Other Stories, Asos western belt- and bandana is all quite inexpensive selections from highstreet brands.
I love the green color of this Marni Trunk Bag – I would call the color for French Green. It reminds me of the color of vintage painted French furnitures.
These shoes from Aquazzura are beautiful and they would last several seasons in my wardrobe. I would wear them with cropped jeans to show of the shoes.
I like chain earrings and I’m on the look for a minimal pair, that I can wear with other earrings. These gold ones from Melissa Joy Manning are quite nice.
I think the western belt and the bandana ad a bit of edge to this outfit. I would wear it to work and for dinner with my girlfriends tonight.
