Serendipitous

Here's my amazing 5-in-one flight suit, worn without the sleeves and shorts, and looking very much like one of the trendy moto vests I've been seeing all over the place. Another serendipitous pre-trend purchase, just like my convertible boots.

I've also worn this piece as a jacket/vest combo for a Girls' Night Out, where I went outside with the jacket sleeves on and then once inside I removed the sleeves and wore it as a vest for the rest of the evening. The best part is that the sleeves can be folded up and fit into a medium-sized purse, which means I don't have to haul a jacket around when I go out. This is truly a phenomenal piece of clothing.

The vest has a small, subtle plaid pattern, which goes nicely with the busier and larger pattern of the dress.

Vest: Shawna Hoffman
Dress: Tulle
Boots: Fly London

I love the idea of just storing away the sleeves until you need them again. How cool.

Great boots. I have boot envy.

Ooooh! We are denim vest buddies! I have mine on today. Twinsies.

AND....my word verification was "ovest."

Oh, vest, how I adore thee.

I am so jealous--that convertible flight suit is just. so. perfect. And that dress is charming; it brings out your highlights so well... Also, I love those boots. In summary, I love your entire wardrobe and would kidnap it if I could.

I love this! It's totally fun, and creates a pretty silhouette while still being functional. Best of all worlds!
