Outfit Details

So like I said, this is an adorable everyday look. 

Take some basics from your closet, like a striped turtleneck or tee, or even a plain black top or sweater, and some skinny jeans, and top with a plaid vest. 

I wanted to show you that I found some other similar vests:

Since I mixed some prints, I chose to add some more black to the look with some gorgeous wide calf over-the-knee boots from Duo.  They’re available up to about 20″ circumference.   

If you’re not sure what size you’d need, please read this post all about measuring your calves and shopping for wide calf boots.

Then I added a bougie bag, one of my favorites by Celine, the Micro Luggage Tote.  

And lastly I added a black beanie with faux fur pompom.  So cute!
