The Ultimate Autumn Bucket List & Friendship Friday #10

Autumn Bucket List | Fall Bucket List | Fun Fall Activities

While summer doesn’t end for a few weeks yet, lots of us consider this weekend to be the last official big hurrah of the season.  I hope you all have great weekends planned!  Looking back, it has been an amazing summer.

The sweater vest is from Vince Camuto.  It has a fun waffle-knit texture and kangaroo front pocket.  Available in 4 colors and I thought the grey would be a great mix-and-match piece for transitioning to cooler weather.  I saw this piece in real life prior to purchase and thought it ran a bit long so went for the petite version in my usual size.

Most of us are accustomed to seeing metallics in evening wear.  As shown in the look below, adding a metallic top to a pair of jeans is an easy way to create a quick, updated date night or out dancing with the girls outfit.
