An outfit full of basic pieces, worn for a weekend of playing tourist. I almost didn't even post these photos (yes, there are some looks that don't make the cut) because it felt a little boring to me, but I figured that it would be fair to admit that I don't always feel like my style decisions are spot-on.
After the jump you'll find a few more photos, this outfit's details, and what kind of activities warrant such plain pieces...
My Mom and Aunt (who are both more like my sisters) were here for a visit a few weeks back, and these shots were taken on our adventure of walking across the Brooklyn Bridge (which was so fun, BTW), brunch & shopping. Those storm clouds you see in the background were basically the start of what ended up being Sandy, but we didn't let them stop us from having an amazing few days of some MUCH needed girl's time.
Oh, and the more I look at these pictures, the more I realize that the olive-green-final-layer really carried the whole look. I wear vests quite a lot, and I think it's because the extra texture, color and details can add so much interest, with little to no effort. Check out some of the very best vests from years past on S&P, and tell me in the comments - is this an item that makes an appearance in your own wardrobe every once in a while?
