This lovely little piece of denim is my new favorite thing. I catch myself trying to work it into every outfit and have to tell myself, “Audrey, you just wore that yesterday, give it a rest!” Isn’t anything denim just the best? It matches with everything, is a great layering piece, and is one of those things that will never go out of style! I found this piece at Goodwill a couple of weeks ago in the dress section. I pulled it off the rack and instantly knew it wouldn’t fit as a dress. The waist is willing, but the hips are not 😉 . I looked at it for a moment and decided to try unbuttoning it and wearing it as a vest. Needless to say it worked perfectly and it is definitely one of the most functional things I have spent money on in a while. Lesson learned? Take the time to envision something for what it can be versus what it looks like on the hanger. Try things on instead of just assuming they won’t work. Take what doesn’t fit or is too long/too short and see if you can create something new with it to make it work! I know I always quote Ms. Frizzle on Magic School Bus but, “Take chances, make mistakes, and get messy!”

Affectionately, Audrey ❤

P.S. Aren’t these pictures just amazing!?
