OUTFIT// THE VEST AS A SHIRT

Let me be the first to say that this look ain't for everybody. But let me quickly remind you that showing your midriff is NOT a requirement - it's just what happened here today. I was getting dressed today when a voice inside myself said

"SELF... what about wearing a vest as a shirt? It's such an underrated piece in layering to begin with and it just about never (outside of being a trend in the 90's) is given the proper time to shine"

So I listened to that inner voice and gave the only vest I own, it's moment in the sunlight. 

Full look: 

Nothing deep happening here. It's a vest with charcoal boyfriend jeans. 

I'm thinking a vest with interesting design elements is a must. This one, has an inner and outer layered design. I was able to snap shut the inner piece and let the outer hang for "style".  Could have buttoned it all up. BORING!

Oh, hi girl. 

Since the vest is the pulled together piece, I went with baggy boyfriend jeans to bring some edge. If I chose skinny jeans, it would have been too much "sexy" 

Kept it sporty from the waist to the toe with these NIke Lunarlon kicks. Why the neon? Why not a black shoe? That's a bigger conversation developing in my head about the cycles of personal style. 

Have any of you tried the vest as shirt look? Tell me, tell me!

OUTFIT // TOUGH ALL BLACK SUMMER LEATHER

Here's a super practical idea! Sike. But truthfully, what if you're trying to pull of a tough and casual summer vibe? Enter the summer leather short. Yes, it exists and there are tons of faux leather options too.

Here's a look at an all black moment. 

Meet my favorite leather shorts, they're from a men's Japanese brand Remi Relief.

When picking your leather shorts, I recommend a loose fit, casual cut. This pair has a drop crotch and looks like they could be sweat shorts at first glance. And then BAM! They're the sickest, softest leather. 

Since the shorts are "heavy" - why not wear a super thin racer back tank? Yup!

A few black and gold POPS for good measure! 

These Nike Lunarlons are from the fashion week pack from a few years ago. The black and white color way was for NYC.
