My Game Changer: Shearling Vest

Having versatile pieces in my mommy-on-the-go and work wardrobe is very important to me, so before buying something that catches my eye, I always think of how I can incorporate it into my existing wardrobe.

I love this French Connection sweater dress that I bought at TJ Maxx for only $30.  The color just brightens my day.  I don’t like wearing it only by itself though; everyone has something they want to camouflage and I am no different. But, I know how to make it work best for my body shape. Layering it with a completer piece is the solutions. In this case my Vera Wang for Kohl’s blazer and my Vero Moda shearling vest as my Game Changer. Black tights and cut out ankle booties from Nine West complete the two looks and elongate my legs.

The blazer gives the outfit a sophisticated but cool touch, which makes it also work appropriate. I like rolled up sleeves and this way everyone can see the pretty lining as well. On the other hand, the shearling vest totally transforms the look, making it romantic & feminine. I also added a waist belt, so it doesn’t overpower my petite frame, but also to accentuate my waist. Even tough this outfit is totally covered up, I feel sexy in it, mainly because it creates great curves.


















Alongside with other things, both pieces are my wardrobe staples that can be paired many ways. Just by switching the dress with a skinny jeans and a white T, I have two more outfits; simple and put together.

Now it’s your turn to tell me about your Game Changer!
