for someone who often finds herself cold, i’m not a huge fan of outerwear. living in san diego, i can kind of get away with it, but there are certain times of the year when a light sweater just doesn’t cut it. so over the years, i’ve collected a few closet staples –a faux leather bomber, a denim jacket, a classic trench. but noticeably missing was an all-purpose light-weight neutral number that could pair just as well with a simple tee as it could with a summer maxi dress.
for this “non-jacket wearing” girl, it has become the perfect layering piece to throw over a chambray button-down, cashmere sweater, or in this case, a sleeveless blouse to not only cut the chill, but to add an extra element of dimension to an otherwise simple outfit. what i love most about this particular style is that it’s slightly cinched at the waist so your shape doesn’t get lose beneath it. i also love the fact that it’s under $50, because you know i love a bargain.
