Inspiration Monday: Vest + Tank Top

This time for Inspiration Monday I'm going with Kate Hudson in a red vest paired with distressed jeans. This outfit caused a lot of negative comments because her saggy-ass jeans were paired with hot Christian Louboutin ‘Air Chance’ slingback pumps and a sophisticated vest. Most people don't like a mix of luxury polished and trashy items. I don't know what to say; I kind of like the combo of the opposing styles.
Anyway, I was more impressed with the vest and tank top combination.
Since I don't have any bright vests I decided to swap the colors and put on a tweed vest with neon-orange jeans. Next time (because I love the feeling that the vest covering the tank-top gave me...I didn't have to think about the bra straps crawling out of the tee!)
I would like to try a vest + tank top outfit with distressed jeans...and then I will be more confident if a classy vest can go with distressed jeans.









What I'm wearing:
vest - thrifted // similar
jeans - Express // similar
boy's tank top - Aerie // similar
pumps - Calvin Klein // similar
tote - DSW // similar
sunglasses - Target // similar
metallic tattoos - Walmart // similar  

I found that for some reason I couldn't reply to a comment on my own blog. My reply button just disappeared. I want to let you know that I always appreciate the time out of your day for visiting my blog and every comment that you leave here. I can't thank you enough,

Oh Alena, I love this. Way better than the inspiration. The soft coral looks great with the olive. I am also mixing+matching some green with coral today, with my accessories. Happy Monday!

Hi Alena
I love this look. I like how you take inspiration. The peach jeans with the vest looks like an amazing sillouette on you!
