I need a vest


shirt – H&M (last worn here)
dylana blouse – c/o Rada Priya (also worn here)
skinny pant – H&M (also worn here)
sandford boot – H by Hudson via BrandAlley (last worn here on the most beautiful sunny day)
belt – French Connection
watch, bracelets – Michael Kors,
Kurt Geiger, Warehouse
tribute bracelet – Stella and Dot
sequin clutch – Zara
rainbow nails – from yesterday’s post!

leather lead – vintage Oakberry
coat – model’s own

No, I really really do!  Not the kind of vest your Grandpa wears to stop from getting a chill.  The cool kind.  You know?  Those tailored jackets with no sleeves (not to be confused with a waistcoat – totally different).

Anyway, in the absence of a vest, I rolled my shirt sleeves as short as they would go and, as painful as it was, I made do.

Some of you might be wondering what the point of a jacket with no sleeves would be.  What can I tell you?  This is not an issue of practicality…  I NEED ONE.

    Such a convenient strategy to roll up your sleeves!! It creates a cool and effortless safari chic look! You always source fashion with your personal styling integrity and you know what? You shouldn’t mind if you can’t locate “the one” sleeveless cool blazer or vest because this construction is just as creative! 😉

    Hi there ! Just discovered your blog. I went to Zara yesterday and I found a kaki sleeveless combat jacket. I’ll try it in a day or two, if you want to have a look at my blog.
    Nice Sunday, Françoise.
