Layering is an important part of every wardrobe. You want to make sure that you can always mix and match and layer your clothing so that you have endless options! I love these two outfits because they are loose and monochrome, but the different textures, fabrics and shapes really make the outfit what it is. Just because something is comfy and loose, doesn't mean it has to look sloppy.
I'm obsessed with this vest from Chance & Fate - it's so gorgeous! I'm planning on wearing it also over black shorts with a tube top and slides too. It's just the perfect versatile piece for summer layering. I especially like wearing long pieces over shorts because as I'm getting older, I'm less and less comfortable wearing shorts and a tee as is....it's nice to have something to cover my bum sometimes so that I feel more appropiate, and less exposed.
Also, this bag. The shape of it just kills me because it's so gorgeous. Check it out at Xnihilo
