Vest:  Banana Republic (from a few years ago) // Scarf:  H&M (my daughter bought this for me about 10 years ago) // Top:  Ralph Lauren // Pants:  INC // Clutch:  LRL

This is the first week where I am posting more than one post in a week.  This is super exciting for me, because I am co-hosting the monthly Your Own Twist Linkup that my daughter and her friend from Shelbee On The Edge host.  This month’s theme is to wear a red dress.  Now, I do not own any red dresses, but I didn’t want to participate, so I came up with my own little twist.  This long red vest from Banana Republic came to mind.  I thought it would be the perfect alternative to a red dress, especially if you aren’t comfortable wearing a red dress.

The perfect thing about this vest is it can be dressed up and down.  Add a few more accessories and some heels and you are in the dressed up version, whereas here I’m showing you how to dress it down and casually.  This is an outfit that I would definitely wear out to go shopping or to go to lunch/coffee.  Make sure to join the linkup below and follow along every month.  The ladies are announcing their new schedule for 2019 during their January 17th linkup, so stay tuned for more information.

Today we have another guest blogger!  Ewa from 60 Plus Experience is joining us with the red dress theme, with a little bit of a twist.  Why not wear a red long vest instead of a red dress if you don’t have a red dress!

Our Featured Bloggers from last month’s linkup are Chez Rama and Living on Cloud Nine.  We loved their outfits!

  3. What a great, versatile piece. I can see that worn just like you have here, or with a straight black dress or jeans and boots. Super cute. Congrats on two posts in a week!

  4. This vest is such a great option in lieu of a red dress. I was just thinking I need my own red vest to “Christmas up” a variety of outfits.
