AJ Wears :: A utility vest

This was a fantastic weekend. I made a little getaway to Dallas with my mom and sister for a girls' weekend of shopping, eating, and girl time (which included helping my sister box ombre her hair!). So the next couple of days will be recapping the outfits I wore over the weekend - and I'll even throw some wise weekend packing tips your way.

 Tip one :: comfy shoes are key for a weekend of shopping. I picked these sassy little wedge sneakers for a day of driving and then exploring North Park. I had a girl following me around Sephora asking about these things, and I told her what I'm about to tell you - I'm not apologizing for loving wedge sneakers. They're probably dorky and stupid and ugly, but these things are comfy and make me feel cooler than I actually am. When they go out of style, I'll have to find something else to make me look cool like a belly button ring or a pink streak in my hair.

Tip two :: plan your outfits accordingly - or be prepared to buy something to make your outfit better. In this case, it was the vest. I was feeling frumpy after a day of traveling and my outfit was missing the va-va-voom, so I spent most of the afternoon looking for something to "fix" my outfit. I may have never tried on this vest at H&M, or even LOOKED at it, but I put it on and instantly loved the little something it added to my outfit. I bought it and totally became that person who pulls the tags off in front of the store and immediately put it on. I should be embarrassed, but instead I took pictures in it. BLOGGER PROBS.
