It probably isn’t too obvious from the photos, but I was sweating throughout the majority of this photoshoot a lot more than I thought I would because of this outfit and also the weather app’s inaccurate and misleading forecast. When I checked the night before, the weather app predicted it would be 6 whole degrees cooler than the actual temperature. I regretted my decision to wear jeans the moment I stepped out of the house, but I was in a rush and I had to commit.
The denim-on-denim look is not one I wear that often, but when I do, I always try to incorporate different shades of denim to break up the outfit. I have two denim vests, the one I am wearing in the photos (from Forever 21, similar) and another one made of heavier denim and lighter in wash with silver hardware instead of gold. I chose this particular denim vest because I was really feeling for gold at the moment. And because I didn’t have much time to accessorize, I quickly threw on these gold Tory Burch studs, which I received as a graduation gift from my boyfriend. I find that bolder studs such as these are great for the days when you don’t feel like accessorizing much, or, in my case, don’t have the time to think of which jewelry pieces to layer together.
