Hope you made your mom feel special yesterday for Mother's Day. I know mine was happy to see me (and didn't mind being spoiled with gifts.)
Monday's are sometimes the hardest days to dress for (in my opinion) because you need to get out of weekend mode and try to think about work. I especially struggle with waking up, and getting out of bed for that matter. When I do, putting an outfit together at the last minute usually results in me scrambling to get ready Monday mornings and potentially arriving a little late. When in doubt, through a vest on it. That's what I discovered with this Alice + Olivia button down. I wore it with a black and white sweater vest in a recent post and now paired it with a military/Victorian inspired vest and it still looks put together. Instead of pairing it with some plain black pants, I opted to wear these black pants with a brocade/demask print. If you ever want to make your outfit a little more interesting, playing with texture is another way to go besides color and print.
The vest is listed for sale in my +Poshmark closet, and I even spotted the same pants listed in another user's closet here. I found my boots and button down on +Poshmark recently, so it is completely possible to buy this complete outfit through the app with a little patience and by keeping an eye out for similar items. If you haven't used it yet, you are missing out on some cute clothes. Download the app and start out with $5 credit by using my referral code HAEWR. You'll see soon enough why I am such a fan.
Hope you are having a great start to your week!
