We really are no where near fall down here, and my wardrobe is made up of mostly fall and winter items. I mean sure, I have used the excuse "I have no summer clothes" to justify my purchases the last few months. But, I haven't gone too crazy with the summer items, because after living in Alaska for four years, I actually really like fall clothing. I like to layer. I like the simplicity of a sweater making a whole outfit, I like boots, and I like denim when it doesn't feel like a steam room in my pants.
I can't compete with mother nature, so for now I am just trying to remix pieces until the temps drops.
I LOVE this (faux) leather vest that I snagged from the Nordstrom sale. My original thought was to pair it with a turtleneck, or light sweater. But I couldn't wait for that. So this tank top filled the void.
Although the sweetest lady at Publix who was waiting for her steaks to be sliced just right, and I was waiting for my weekly pickup of cow heart and liver (dog food making), said to me "now that is the cutest vest, but your neck has to be sweating". Ha! Neck sweat is better than armpit sweat right?
Anything to justify an outfit!
