OOTD - Long White Vest


If there's one thing that remains constant in my personal style for the spring and summer, is that I love long layering pieces. Be it the oversized blazer I was obsessed with in Spring, and now to this long white vest - layering pieces are key, especially when you seem to be outgrowing the majority of the hemlines in your closet (now that I'm in my thirties.) When I saw this long white vest from Le Chateau, I knew that it had to be mine. All of a sudden my pale pink mini-dress takes on new life with this layering piece over top.  Paired with a pair of nude heels and my favourite silk neck scarf, this is 100% the type of outfit you will catch me in for after-work drinks and events.

Vest - Le Chateau, Dress - Forever 21, Scarf - Aritzia
Shoes - c/o Stuart Weitzman, Bag - Chloé (Style: Mini Drew in Cement Pink)





I honestly cannot get enough of the silk neck scarves this summer: flight attendant chic, as I call it! It's amazing how little details can make the most impact, and solidify themselves into your personal style.  In fact, I forgot to wear a silk necktie one day and my buildings concierge asked "no scarf today?"


What do you guys think?  Are you into the long layering pieces?  How do you mix up an old favourite summer dress?  Let me know!

  5. I love laying longer pieces over my shorter pieces that may be a little too risqué for the office otherwise. Such a great wardrobe trick to have up your sleeve. Looking great Joelle!
