Happy Monday friends!

I hope you all had a great weekend and are ready for a wonderful week ahead!

The weather has been extremely fickle here in Connecticut. Last week was in the high 70s, low 80s, and now we've dipped a bit into the low 60s. This makes having easy to layer pieces a must and I feel the sweater vest is one of those must have staples because you can easily switch up your look, depending on the weather by adding or removing a layer underneath (you could even layer it over a long sleeved dress, such as a shirt dress!) without effecting the overall vibe of the outfit; you'd look put together either way. 

Today, I decided to go sleeveless, but the next time around, I'll opt for a long sleeve or perhaps even a white button-up for a more preppy vibe. I love this one because it's a neutral green shade, making it ideal for both fall and spring. I love that these earth tone shades can be worn during both seasons, which is why I highly suggest you consider them when adding pieces to your wardrobe, to ensure you'll get the most wear and your money's worth. 

I personally love the way earth tones look paired with animal patterns; I think they blend and make sense conceptually and thus, make for a perfect pairing. Here I combined the sweater vest with these leopard pumps I've recently added to my shoe collection and have worn quite a lot. It's so funny because I, thankfully, have quite a lot of shoes, but when I love a pair, I just seem to wear them on constant repeat, as if I have no other options, lol, do you do this, too?! If you've been reading these past few weeks, you know such as been the case with these burgundy ankle boots, lol! Yea, they'll be making another appearance soon.

What did YOU do this weekend? I'd love to know! Thanks so much for stopping by, my dear friends, and I hope you're having the most amazing start to your week so far!
