Must Have Trans-seasonal Piece

 

Can you believe July is nearly over! We are more than halfway through the year how scary is that!!  On the bright side for everyone who is over this cold weather there is only one more month of winter to go!

The period in between when the weather isn’t freezing but not yet hot enough for shorts and singlets can be a wardrobe challenge.  This is why I purchased a sleeveless vest.  It’s such a great trans-seasonal item.  I’m going to share what to wear it with to get your monies worth.

Sleeveless vests are right on trend at the moment and are in shops everywhere but I’m going to share my recent purchase because I’m in love with it.

I found Billy j. on Instagram, this is why I love Instagram it’s so easy to find great shops I, otherwise wouldn’t have known about.  They have $5 express shipping and free shipping on orders over $75. I received my order the next day which really impressed me and made me very happy.

This beautiful vest I’m wearing is called the Pursuit Vest, it’s 65% cotton, 35% polyester.  It’s so light and comfortable to wear and perfect to throw over a jumper without feeling heavy or bulky.  It does come in a couple of other colour options but I’m personally loving grey this season.  I can hear my mum in my head saying “What colour’s would you wear with grey besides black?”  I love grey and white, pink and grey and also navy and grey together.

It’s really easy to stick to what we have always done in the past but don’t be afraid to try something new.  If you’ve never worn a long sleeveless vest before now is your time too.  As it’s so light and comfortable to wear and while the weather is still cold you can wear it over a long sleeve top or jumper like I have.  As it gets warmer you can wear it over a t-shirt with jeans or shorts.  Personally I’m looking forward to wearing it to an event over a sleeveless knitted dress with heels once it gets warm enough.  You can purchase this great versatile piece from Billy j. for only $54 http://billyj.com.au/collections/best-sellers/products/pursuit-vest-grey.  I’m wearing a Large.

I have to mention the gorgeous knit I’m wearing known as Daylight Knit that is also from Billy j.  I love knits but I have a habit of pulling a thread within minutes of wearing them and this is why this one is great, it’s made from acrylic, it’s durable and comfortable.  It has a sexy split down both sides as well.  It is currently on sale for only $47.20 http://billyj.com.au/collections/winter/products/daylight-knit.  I’m wearing a size 12.

Dear readers, what do you think of this sleeveless vest? Do you own one or are thinking of purchasing one?
