Happy Wednesday lovelies! A couple of pieces I bought for this summer are waistcoats, I have the one featured in today’s post and also one in navy. I found trying to get the sizing right a little tricky when ordering this, as I didn’t want it to be too fitted nor too large. But thankfully after a lot overthinking, I managed to get it right and I was more then happy with the fit. The one I’m wearing in today’s post was from COS and I think it’s now sold out but I did link a similar one in the photo above.
What I love about waistcoats is that they are such a great alternative to the summer blouse or the basic tee and even though I’m a fan of both of those, the waistcoat is refreshingly chic and wonderfully androgynous, which if you’ve followed my blog long enough, you know that I’m a fan of androgynous styling. Waistcoats can look great layered over simple tees for a paired back look or over blouses for some bohemian flare.
But whilst the summer heat is on, I’m loving wearing mine with nothing underneath. It’s surprisingly cool and for this look I kept things simple with just my favourite pair of navy wide leg pants and my strappy and slightly flatform sandals.
The oval sunglasses lends a gentle retro feel to the waistcoat, whilst the tote bag keeps to those clean and contemporary lines of the outfit. I hope you like today’s outfit, let me know what you think.
Sending you my love and light,
