The Covered Perfectly vest

Tuesday, February 07, 2017

 I love it when clothes have more than one use, just like this Covered Perfectly cascading vest.  Here I'm wearing it with leggings and a Covered Perfectly black tee (LOVE their tees!). It's a super simple outfit, but the vest gives it pizzaz.
I accessorized with large gold hoop earrings and a stretchy gold cuff (similar HERE and HERE).
My boots are by Joan and David--I scoffed them up for just $15.00 at Chic Consignment! Score! Similar HERE--they're not $15, but still a fabulous price!

Now here comes the double duty. This vest easily turns into a scarf! It's super lightweight so there's no bulk or bunching.
It comes in a variety of prints, but I'm a sucker for animal print. I particularly love the rich colors in this one.
Aviator sunglasses keep things sporty.
I also love this scarf for accessorizing a lounging outfit. I'm wearing a Covered Perfectly leisure suit---so comfy for relaxing (and I wear the top separately too!).  By the way, I'm reading The Lady and the Panda, written by my dear friend Vicki Croke. Her new book Elephant Company is next on  my "to read list".  
There's another reason why I love Covered Perfectly so much. The owner Pauline has a heart of gold and has contributed boxes of clothes to Uncommon Threads.  I truly love to support businesses that give back. Thank you Pauline!
