Denim (in)Vest(ment)

As someone who was actually a child in the 90s, I've been actively avoiding a lot of the 90s trends that have been resurfacing. After all, daisy-covered dresses and overalls are a little too "real" in terms of recent memory for me. However, one item I haven't said "no" to is the denim vest. I love vests (proof here, here, and here) so it should really come as no surprise that it's been a go-to piece for me this summer.

Dress: Urban Outfitters (here) / Denim Vest: Talula (Aritzia) (similar)
Shoes: Converse (here) / Hat: New Era (in black)

    1. I don't really think I can either so it's the only one I own -- and only because I wanted something to wear to support my fave NFL team!

  10. I love a good denim vest. I haven't invested a whole lot of attention to 90's trends per se, since 90's fashion was not cool back then lol! Honestly I feel like I'm the only one who cringes at my childhood photos!

  11. I've also been picking and choosing with the 90s trend (although I did say yes to overalls lol)-- you made the right choice with this vest. It's too cute! And love the addition of the hat to the outfit :)

  13. I am super contemplating a denim vest right now (as in it's sitting in the shopping cart... one click away...) and wondering if I really need two denim jackets AND a vest... this post seems to be a sign from the fashion universe that I DO need all those in my life ;)

  15. I feel the same way about the daisies that have come surging back. I loved them when I was in like 5th-6th grade, but I agree that the memory is a little too strong still for me to rock it now. The nostalgia is still there though haha. Love the denim vest and have actually been looking for one that suits me :)
