Bayshore Sun and a Saved Denim Vest

The weather warmed to 85 degrees and I was so excited to be invited for a walk on the bay. . . and some ice-cold tea!

One trend I adore this spring is the denim vest, but until recently this one was in a little bag destined for donation. It is slightly tight when closed but after seeing the trend I noticed how much more I liked it open anyway! Pairing wide leg, white linen pants and a billowy, nude silk top highlights the vest and creates a more sophisticated look. I suggest looking for a more fitted vest with a few details: zippers, buttons, stitching or a great collar. This helps denim vests to avoid looking childish or too grungy.
Another great way to wear the denim vest trend is very Americana, pairing it with a floral summer dress and a long vintage necklace, feel free to throw in booties and a cross body bag as well. They also pair great with patterns, including this season's stripes and abstract patterns. Have an amazing weekend!
