Style Diary: Inspired by Olivia Palermo’s Vest
Ever see a celebrity photo and then get totally inspired fashion-wise? It happened to me the other day when I ran into this shot of Olivia Palermo. Olivia is probably my favorite style star. I think she achieves a great balance between being classy and edgy, trendy yet classic. I’m often inspired by her as you can see in my other style diary post which was inspired by an Olivia Palermo outfit.
Seeing Olivia in this black vest reminded me of the black Bebe vest that I had sitting in my closet. It was a piece that sort of dumbfounded me. I got in a styling rut with it and it has sat in the back of my closet yearning for attention. That is until now. I layered it over a feminine dress that hit the knee similar to what Olivia paired her vest with and wore it with a pair of fall booties.
My booties are from Aldo, the dress is from H&M and the chain necklace is Express – all pretty cheap finds proving that you don’t have to spend a lot to create a stylish outfit. Looking at this now, I wish I had a pair of black leather motorcycle gloves to go with the outfit.
