Last year I limped through fall and winter fashion. I wore the same thick gray sweater dress with black leggings and cognac riding boots every time it was cold, which felt like 32 days... in a row. So this year I'm doing the opposite. I'm trying tons of new things, getting creative and I even saved up some budget so I could use a larger portion this season. The sky is the limit, so I didn't hesitate to pick up this interesting vest at H&M. In photos I don't think it's super flattering. It may look better with the belt off and letting it hang open completely though. I'll also try it with more outfits and if I can't make it work... I'm happy that at least I gave it a shot!
