21st Century Little Bo Peep

Light pink seems to be a hue that I will forever be in love with. From wearing it as a young child to dance class to wearing it as an adult I love it more and more every time I wear it. This top is half-peplum which I ADORE because I feel like peplum makes me look large sometimes so the half-peplum still showed that I have a figure.light pink, topshop top, peplum, little bo peep

Moth-Esque Fashion

I can always count on my Dad to tell me the truth about what I am wearing and with this shirt I KNEW he would have something funny to say. He told me that it looked like some moths had gotten to my shirt ~crying laughing emoji~ Shirts with holes in them are very in right now. Everyone is making them from extremely high end fashion brands to cheaper ones! I am wearing one that I got from the BP section of Nordstrom and I love it! The shirt looks just like the super expensive ones as well!holy shirt, summer outfit, summer outfit ideas, reeboks, valentino

PHARRELL X ADIDAS

Adidas is back and bigger than ever. While I couldn’t get my hands on the monochromatic adidas by Pharrel I did happen to get my hands on this shirt that was part of the collection! adidas, pharrel, asos, sporty spice, topshop, jean skirt, athleisure IMG_6436Adidas Shirt//Adidas Shoes//Topshop Pom-Pom Hair Tie//Jean Skirt

When I wear a sporty outfit I still like to add some girly touches to it to make it Haley-esque. I paired my adidas shoes and adidas shirt with a button up jean skirt and a fun Pom-Pom (fendi inspired) Topshop Scrunchy!

This look is perfect for a spring/summer day and it’s especially ideal if you’re a lakers fan! Wearing sporty gear can be for anyone and with these tips you’ll be sure to be Vest Dressed!

Blue Jean Baby

Boyfriend jeans and an everyday t-shirt believe it or not IS fashionable. Not only is it super fashionable but also super comfortable. To me there is nothing better than throwing on a comfortable pair of jeans while looking like a dime piece! This spring make boyfriend jeans and a soft tee a staple in your wardrobe!

Flowy dresses are a must for the spring time. They are the perfect go-to outfit. My favorite color is purple which makes this dress a hundred times better. The lilac dress also has detailed straps that are flowers which makes for a very delicate touch!

Playful Patterns

Today my sister and I went to the Arts District to see all of the amazing street art that is covering the streets from head to toe! It was so neat to see all of the art and to explore another part of downtown Los Angeles. Of course while going to the Arts District I thought it would be a perfect opportunity for backdrops for one of my blog posts! This post is all about patterns, patterns, and MORE patterns!! I love mixing and matching patterns, keeps my style funky fresh!IMG_3073

Vacation Wear

Happy 2015 everyone!! I hope you like the new additions to the website!  My amazing sister helped me fix it up and I added some topics that I will be discussing a lot on my blog.  Be sure to check out her instagram for the prettiest scenic photos (@ktakesla)

So I am back home and more depressed than ever. If you all have been following my instagram (@vestdressed_) then you would know that I have been in complete paradise for the last 14 days! My family rented a villa in Saint Martin on the French side (I will be showing pictures of the beautiful island in my travel section of my blog later today!) and it was the most amazing vacation to date! I would highly suggest the French side of the island to anyone thinking about visiting! I thought I would show a few outfits that I wore while on the island!

So first before I went on vacation I went crazy on ASOS! They have the most amazing outfits for vacation wear and their website is even organized for vacation wear so it is all very easy to find!

The first outfit from ASOS that I sported was this outfit where I channeled my inner Kim Kardashian! I absolutely love Kimmy K so this was everything I wanted and more!  Also you all will notice that with all of my outfits I have Flash Tatoos on!  I cannot rave enough about these Flash Tatoos!!  They are so fun and a MAJOR vacation essential!

I wore this Kimmy K outfit with my Rebecca Minkoff envelope clutch (that my sisters got me for Hanukkah!) that I absolutely love. I also paired this outfit with a turquoise necklace and earrings that I got in Marigot at the Bazaar in Saint Martin. For those of you who don’t know, a Bazaar is like a huge flea market but they sell lots of Caribbean items and it is a lot of fun to look around at everything!

This lilac (fav color!) shift dress is from ASOS as well and it was the perfect dress for the carribean. It is so flowy and I love that the straps are flowers! So cute and elegant!  My sister who helped me fix up my sight is with me in this photo!

The second outfit from ASOS that I wore were the cutest pom pom shorts in the world. These shorts are SO comfortable and they have pineapples and flowers all over them. I paired this outfit with a crop top with an open back that I got from Nordstrom a few years back. This was a great combo!

The next outfit from ASOS I wore was a matching two piece set that I have been dying to get! I have wanted a matching set for quite a while and this one is absolutely perfect! It is so fun to wear and I love the fabric.

For my last outfit I FINALLY got a pair of funky pants!! I have been wanting some funky pants for a while and I found some on ASOS (of course) and even on sale (score!). These pants are by seafolly and I absolutely love them. They are extremely comfortable and extremely fashionable. I paired my seafolly pants with a Brandy Melville t-shirt and Jack Rogers! It was the comfiest combination possible!

Phew, I know that was a long post but I wanted to show a little of some of my outfits!  I will post another vacation post roundup next week with some other outfits I wore!

Did any of you go on an awesome vacation over your winter break?  Let me know if you did, I would love to hear where everyone went!

Channeling My Inner Blair Waldorf

These last few days have been so exciting and emotional! I have officially graduated from college (so exciting) but unfortunately I have had to say goodbye to so many good friends. To all my beautiful friends out there, it wasn’t good bye it was see you soon <3

I thought putting this outfit together was perfect because now that I am a graduate I have to start dressing business casual for interviews and future jobs! This would be a perfect business casual look while still being able to show your full personality! Let’s get to the outfit details! And of course, there is plaid, because well, I am just MAD for PLAID!!

IMG_0298 IMG_0428 IMG_0483Plaid Skirt//Ruffle Cami//Blazer//Kate Spade Sunglasses//Tights//Steve Madden booties//midi ring// David Yurman Ring//David Yurman Bracelet

I have to start by saying that I was SO thankful for my sister letting me borrow her awesome new Kate Spade Sunglasses!  They were a lifesaver.  For some reason I could not keep my eyes open for the life of me (it was tragic) so I slipped these diva Kate Spade Sunglasses on and I was set!  I am completely jealous of these sunglasses and want some for myself!  I love how big the frames are on them and how fun they are to wear!

Of course my skirt is plaid, which I love!  Not only is this skirt plaid but it is also scalloped at the bottom making it the best of both worlds!  This skirt is from ASOS and I would highly suggest it.  Pairing a white ruffle cami with this skirt and a nice blazer like I did hear makes for a very fun yet sophisticated look.

Let’s talk tights!!  I have received few questions about what outfits to wear tights with and where I get my tights so I am going to discuss those questions!  The tights I am wearing are from J.Crew and whenever I want some new tights I always go to J.Crew to get them!  The tights that J.Crew sells are really great quality and they last for a really long time.  I love wearing a thicker tight (like a sweater tight) as well, it just depends on what type of outfit I am pairing with the tights!  Most tights are footed which is nice because if you are pairing tights with an outfit it is so you can stay warm while still wearing versatile outfits in the wintery months and staying chic.  So don’t be scared to try some tights with an outfit because it could make all the difference!

I am a complete Gossip Girl fanatic (hopefully some of you are too??), and I have to say I LOVE Blair Waldorf so whenever I can I try to channel her and I think this outfit did a pretty good job at channeling my inner Blair Waldorf!  If you have a Gossip Girl inspired outfit be sure to comment and show me!
