Vest Repeat

A base of white topped with a colorful flowing vest creates a look that is a step above a tee and jeans but just as comfortable. Tying the vest up in the front looks a bit more polished with the bonus of hiding the tummy area. I can wear this look with flat sandals and carry a straw bag to make it even more casual and appropriate for summer.

The “Lize” straight leg pants are by Lior Paris from My Fair Lady. The discount code for this month is August18 to get 15% off your purchase. The gray bag is old, but a similar style is on my shopping site here. The I.N.C. Kivah sandals are here. The French Kande necklace is here and here. I switched the pendants so that the strand would include only neutral gray/white gemstones. Affiliate links in my posts may generate a small commission for Susan After 60 Inc.

I wore the look above to a business meeting. A few weeks ago, I wore the same vest (as shown below) out to dinner with a V-neck white top and black pants here. I thought it might be helpful to see how I wear the same piece in slightly different ways.

  1. I absolutely love this vest Susan. The colors, the shape, and the fact that you can wear it a couple of different ways makes it so perfect.

  2. Here’s my Susan story.

    I started following your blog about three years ago. The day this was posted, I was wearing something similar: a white crocheted sleeveless shell top, white slim-leg pull-on jeans and an lightweight ombre turquoise kimono top.

    Today, I returned to an office I visited yesterday, and one of the younger staff said, “I like what you’re wearing today, and what you wore yesterday. I like your style.” Wow. Then I got another compliment at the next business I visited. This doesn’t happen to me.

    I wouldn’t have worn white pants, or all white with a third piece before I found your blog. Ah, yes, the column of color can be white. I was struggling with what to wear as my hair color and skin tone changed. Thank you for the inspiration. I feel better and look better. (My weight hasn’t changed,) The compliments are a bonus.

  3. Susan, you mentioned in another video that your jeans were poking out of your shirt at the the waist. Someone told me about Invisibelt on Amazon. It is super because it makes that belt area lie flat. I have one in black and white and wear them whenever I don’t want that pooch. Check it out.
