Utility Vest + Suede Lace Up Sandals

The other day while grocery shopping I saw a woman who I thought just oozed style and grace. She was wearing a simple outfit, khaki chinos, a tank top, sandals, and a scarf draped over one shoulder leaving one shoulder bare. She had just a few simple bangles and some pretty earrings and a leather tote bag. The thing is, she must have been over 60, but I saw her and was immediately like – I need to wear that outfit! She just had an air about her that made it look amazing. The longer I’m in this fashion world, the more cemented the idea becomes to me, true style has no age, size, price, or limitations in general. You can be wearing thrift or designer, but wearing it with confidence is the only way to, (in my Tim Gunn voice) make it work.

Today’s look is my fail-safe weekend uniform. My Levi’s 501 CT jeans, which I have in several washes, are probably my most worn jeans in my closet. I also have not stopped wearing this utility vest since I got it – it really goes with everything – and bonus: it’s under $40!

Side note: As we were shooting this, Adam picked me a dandelion – something he’s been doing all summer long – and I just love the sweet gesture. I decided to keep the picture in the post 🙂
