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 gray bag is old—the I.N.C. Kivah sandals are old. 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 me at no extra cost to you.
I wore the look above to a business meeting. A few weeks ago, I wore the same vest (shown below) out to dinner with a V-neck white top and black pants. I thought it might be helpful to see how I wear the same piece in slightly different ways.
