chunky monkey

When I saw this chunky monkey I had to have it and knew it was the perfect layering essential.   This vest is the perfect amount of chunkiness for a late summer/early fall piece over summer dresses. It will work well when the weather gets a bit more chilly and you can layer on even more chunky sweaters!!!

 I did a little dance as we walked to Shake Shack for dinner because the weather is perfect. Time to pull out the boots and the scarves!!! 

 I found this vest at the back of a Second Time Around, $29. For those of you who are not familiar with STA it's a consignment shop and the one close to me has the best finds. They have a few vintage pieces there as well. I bought this vintage dress the same day. 

Since I have so many dresses, I'm starting to layer all of them with sweaters to transition them into fall looks. 

 My fall love boots, peep toe booties. 

Thank you so much for reading!
