And a hearty welcome back to my old friend -the trench vest! This little lady has been with me since.... 2015? 2016? Roughly. And she has always come through for me. In fact, it has stayed in pretty close to the same condition as it was when I first got it.
Regrettably, I have not styled it a lot lately. Then I had an idea for this pairing! I was excited to pair it together and low and behold, it went together perfectly! :D
I feel like it serves several purposes for this look: it ties together the black-on-black pairing, it serves as an extra layer to keep warm (it is surprisingly warm!) and finally, it ties in the layered pearl necklaces!
This is one of my favorite styling techniques! I do this quite often with smaller gold necklaces, but those are of course not the statement piece that layering these pearls are.
This is three separate necklaces. It is just a fun way to spruce up a look. It adds a dash of drama that people will not see coming!
I still like the contrast between them! So, win, win! =)
When I went to shoot this look, I went to a small shopping center -we will go with that since I am not sure what else to call it- where all of the businesses were closed for the day. I started taking pictures and noticed a Sherrif car drive by, stop for a minute, and then circle back around and park nearby.
I don't know for sure if he was keeping an eye on me, but it sure felt like it! He never did come over and ask me to leave or anything. But since I was not 100% sure if I was allowed to be there, I cut my shoot short and headed out. For all I know he was just curious as to why a random girl was doing taking picture after picture of herself! xD Or -most likely- he probably was just parking to take a call or a break or something and not paying me any mind at all! xD
Everything in this look is pretty old, so I won't link them. But for those interested, the trench vest and bag were from Forever21!
Thank you for reading and have a great weekend!
