Chambray Drape Vest

Summer OOTD Chico's Draped Chambray Vest |

When a shopping mission goes wrong, but turns out alright. 

Chambray vest: Chico’s sale
Camisole: Lou & Grey (I love the fabric, and want this silky cami in every color!)
White Skinnies: Earl Jeans via TJMaxx
Leather ballet flats: Kohl’s (found on major sale, also bought black and cognac suede)

I ducked into Chico’s on my way into LOFT a few weeks ago. It was my first visit; I popped in on a whim, remembering a friend’s cute leather ankle wrap sandals that I thought she bought there…

I quickly realized I was in the wrong place for shoes, remembered the aforementioned sandals were from Talbots, and made a note to find them online. But the entire store was 30 or 40% off, so I figured a quick lap around couldn’t hurt.

I spied several cute things while I browsed, like a black and white striped off-the-shoulder top, a long sleeveless tunic (that would be great over skinnies with a long necklace) and a relaxed pullover dress.

I found this chambray drape vest on the clearance rack, and thought it would be perfect to add to my growing collection of “completer pieces” for easy outfits. Remaining sizes are limited online (I bought their ‘0’, and I’m usually a size 6 in tops) so if you need a small, Shopbop has a cute version from BB Dakota on sale under $40.

    What brand are those flats? They look cute and I’m better they’re comfortable too if you bought several pairs!

  • Our blooming crepe myrtle + pink sunset skies. 💕
She was just a little baby tree when we planted her by our front window 13 summers ago, and now she’s as tall as the roof! #crepemyrtle #ihavethisthingwithpink #acolorstory #summernights
  • To file under Unexpected Wardrobe Staples: a snake print duster; I found this one at @topbuttons last month and put it in my #30x30remix as a wildcard. I wore it for the first time yesterday, and now I’m totally on-board the kimono/duster/light-and-easy-layering-layering-piece train! #ootd #instastyle #whatiwore #shoplocal
  • Hey, girl! 👋🏻 We have a handful of these hand-painted face vases available at @lasaterflowers that are perfect for fresh flowers, succulents, or even a catch-all bowl for keys and hair ties. (We all have one of those somewhere in our home; it may as well be cute. 😉) #floraldesign #shopsmall #summerblooms #flashesofdelight
  • I jumped on board with @kendieveryday’s #30x30remix! For the next month, I’ll mix-and-match 30 pieces from my wardrobe into 30 weekday outfits and share them in weekly roundups on the blog.

My first week of remixed outfits + my thoughts on the challenge are in today’s post at 👖

  • Back to work after a relaxing weekend! But with *zero* tan to show for it; I’m never not fully-shaded and SPF’ed, wearing a giant sun hat and some kind of mumu situation on a beach.

  • Found our new favorite beach getaway spot this weekend! 🌴 #lovefl
