I know, I know- I was just talking about holiday cheer, and here I am again with a pumpkin! It made me so happy to see this little guy standing proudly on the sidewalk the other day, bravely withstanding the Thanksivingistmas frenzy. I’m now considering adorning our soon-to-arrive Christmas tree with little pumpkins. Who says pumpkins have to disappear come December? Not I.
I found this fabulous leather vest at a little designer resale store when I was in LA covering fashion week. My friend Stacy (aka the best host/tour guide ever) recommended that I stop by Buttons & Bows, and a quick peek inside quickly led to several hours of blissful styling with Roderick, a buyer with a heart of gold. Although the beautiful decor was serious Instagram candy, the real treasures hung on the racks. Roderick nudged me to pair this vest with a diaphanous Zara dress, a look I can’t wait to wear again this spring.
For winter, I love layering the vest over a light sweater and adding skinny jeans or slim pants to balance out the vest’s bulk. I was in a bit of a sparkly mood when I put this look together, so I had fun layering a sequined top underneath to add a little bit of fun to the greyscale outfit. What do you think? I may try it again soon!
