by Kéla Walker

minimum pieces for maximum style


Happy Monday Kuties.  Today is the first day in a week long series using  just 5 pieces to create 1 week’s wardrobe.  I’m starting off with items 3  and 4 – The Vest and the Dress.  Some people find styling a vest to be a little tricky but it’s really quite simple.  This vest is one of my favorites, in fact you will see a lot of it in this week’s series. Kontinue to see get more insite on styling a vest

maximize your style

I love a a good vest; it’s one of the most versatile pieces you can have. This vest is one of my favorite purchases this year and has established itself as a kloset keeper. It’s a piece that I can style in a variety of ways.  Thanks to Danielle of  The StyleNBeauty Doc  for sharing this find on Instagram. I’d encourage everyone to invest in a dress vest  / long vest  for their own Kloset. This dress is great alone but I added the vest to give a little more depth to the look. I love the contrast of the cobalt blue with the darker color (it’s actually navy but I wear like black).

Forgive me for all this blue.  It was pure coincidental that it was all worn at the same time.  UGH I hate that.
