You've seen this vest before. The weather cooled-off a bit today, making me want to reach for an additional layer, but not one that would amount to knitwear or some other such non August-like piece, so out came the vest. It's just the right thing to add a bit of dimension to what is, let's face it, just another jeans and a t-shirt. I took the layering just a wee step further with the necklaces, and added a pair of truly amazing Donald J. Pliner shoes that I got at Marshalls while I was in graduate school for….get this…$25. They are beautifully-made (you can see that they are hand-stitched on the inside), totally comfortable, and of course, leopard. I always say there is nothing in life that can't be made better with the addition of leopard print.
