A vested look

It's always a good idea to invest in a good pair of jeans. The kind that hugs you in all the right places and looks better with age, but do you ever stop to wonder about investing in another jean piece? It's trendy, versatile, flattering, and adds an edge to the girliest of outfits: The jean vest! 
There are plenty to choose from, whether you like dark, light, color, cropped or waist length. There's one out there for everyone and many ways to wear them. They can provide a great contrast to a feminine summer dress or a bohemian look.

    1. We love jean jackets, especially when you can roll the sleeves. Super cute!

  7. A jean vest is a great piece if you know what to pair it with. I love it in the first photo the best because the vest is short and hard, while the dress is soft and long. The contrast goes together so well.

    1. We love the first look too and the contrast is perfect! We love a girly dress with the edgy vest; it's like rock and roll meets pretty in pink.
