A Lace Vest, Sunglasses & Exclamation Points

I've had this lace vest for a while now and I think I've only worn it once or twice... But at church on Sunday, I saw a cute friend of mine paired one with a printed dress and I thought . . . I can do that!  So, I did. =)

Halftee: c/o Halftee (purchase here)
Lace Vest: Maurices ($6, similar here)
Dress: Target ($20, similar here and here)
Sandals: A Boutique in New Orleans ($10, similar here and here)

I felt a bit like a hippie in this outfit. The gladiator sandals, the breezy dress, the lace vest and the aviator sunglasses . . . It all really made me feel like I should have long tangled hair with a headband woven from fresh picked flowers. ;)

Sunglasses: Daisy Fuentes, Kohls ($10, similar here)
Leather & Chain Bracelet: Gift
Gold Freshwater Pearl & Citrine Bracelet: Won in a Giveaway (purchase here)
Blown Glass Ring: Glow Salon ($5, similar here)

I got these sunglasses this weekend from Kohls and I love them. I've had the hardest time finding a pair of sunglasses that complement my face and haircut and these really seem to do it. Yay for aviators! ;)


I was commenting on a blog yesterday and realized that I use a lot of exclamation points! Ha, see there. =) It reminded me of the episode of Seinfeld where Elaine breaks up with her boyfriend over his lack of exclamation points in a note that he left her.  I tend to use them everywhere and all the time! I'm kind of an animated person and I like to try to portray my exact feeling in my text as I do in conversation. Or maybe I'm just making excuses for sounding like a cheerleader. ;)

How about you? Are you a lover or exclamation points, too?

I'm linking up today with Monday Mingle!

Oh, I really like this outfit. Yes, it does remind me a little of open fields on a sunny spring day, but that's why I like it. It really channels spring. Little vests like that be hard to style, but I love how you put this together. And that pop of color from the Halftee underneath is really wonderful. Lovely, Tiffany! And no worries, I adore exclamation points!!

I also tend to use multiple exclamation points when posting or commenting...but I rarely use them in daily life!! I love the addition of the lace vest over the dress! Those sandals are my favorite!!

The lace vest is so pretty. I really love it. I use a lot of exclamation points when I am posting comments too! Ooops!!!

silvergirl said...

I am the exact same way with exclamation points!!
I just really need people to know I mean something i guess.
love the idea of the lacey vest over a sweet dress!

Hehe I use a lot of exclamation points too. Mostly because I think it gets the post across better :) That floral dress is so pretty...Target has done it again!

I think that vest is adorable!

Bravoe Runway said...

Vests are the most trickiest piece for me to style! And just like you I probably use a lot of exclamation points as well :) and emoticons. I think you did a great job styling this outfit and I see the hippie vibe.

Great vest and terrific styling. I love the mildly hippie-chic look; it looks good on you.

Melissa said...

I tend to overuse emoticons. A LOT. But yes, also exclamation points! I'm the same way, you can't hear vocal inflection in text so I try to get my exact emotion across with emoticons and punctuation marks. I think I have a real problem. :)

You look adorable! I'm not a huge fan of lace for myself, but on you, it's fabulous. :)

I'm an exclamation point junkie too. Ha! Love your avs and sandals!

Carrie Teal said...

I love your new glasses, they look great with your short hair, by the way I love! I also tend to use exclamation points a lot. Thanks for stopping by my blog and leaving the sweet comment.

Between Terri's lace shirt at Rags against the Machine and your lace vest, I'ma hafta get me a lace topper, too! (See, I can use exclamation points, although I mostly had them beaten out of me as an English Lit major :P)

Love the aviators. They do suit you very well.

Heather said...

You are totally hippie chic! I am loving that lace vest - so much fun! You look great!

Lookin' great, Tiffany! The vest is adorable. It looks like the little cozies my grandma used to make--but in a totally good way. :) I love semi-colons; they are my favorite punctuation. Is that boring or what?

I use exclamation points all the time. I am constantly thinking to myself that ending every sentence with an exclamation point may not be the best idea, but I do it anyway! I love the lace vest layered over the printed dress. I have one from Maurices I need to break back out. Thanks for the inspiration. You look adorable!!

You look darling. Love the dress and lace vest. I sometimes have a bad habit of using exclamation marks too much, but I try not too - haven't used any just now so far - yess :) Hope you have a sweet day :) x

Tinfoil Tiaras said...

I love exclamation points too! I think they make everything sound more exciting and upbeat! :) Love this outfit- the lace and the sandals and the aviators, need I go on?

Megan said...

I love this vest, so romantic and vintage looking :) I would want to pair it with everything!

oomph. said...

this is such a pretty lace vest. it reminds me of a doily, and i mean that in a good way!

i'm not so much an exclamation person...more of a three dot person...

[oomph.]

Kish said...

ohh, Tiff! You look adorable. I love the lace with the print, plus the pop of color.

And are you a pilot? Cuz those aviators are too fly! :)

(Cheesy, I know...just couldn't help it!)

Very cute outfit! The lace vest is so feminine and looks fantastic with your dress. I use a TON of exclamation points too!! Like you, I'm very cheerful and peppy and I like to portray that when I write ;)
