Stripes + The Belted Trench Vest… an Outfit with L

Happy Friday Lovely Readers~

Today’s post is a quick “hello” to show you how I styled my new striped dress (a style steal for a mere $7 at the Gap outlet). This is one of the shorter dresses I own (wow, white legs!), so I wanted to add some ladylike features to off set it – queue in the pearls and patent pumps.  The tan trench vest is one of my new items that I’m finding so many different ways to style. It is really something that can be worn year round.  As you know, W and I love when we can get many uses out of a single item.  It’s all about maximizing what you own rather than having to spend money on new items.  

What do you think? Would you have fun wearing this belted, sleeveless trench over your dresses?
