Today I am teaming up with Becky, Meghan, and Whitney to show you some fall fashion. Specifically how we’ve been wearing our utility vests lately.
Before I say anything else I want to take a second to tell y’all how much I stepped out of my comfort zone to do this post. When Meghan reached out to me with the idea I quickly agreed without much thought. It wasn’t until the day I went to take photographs that I had the “what in the world were you thinking” thoughts pop into my head. I can’t even tell you how awkward and uncomfortable I felt standing there… in a random alley… with a tripod, my girls, and a camera remote. I totally have a new-found respect for fashion bloggers who do this all the time.
Okay, moving on now.
A long, long time ago (aka 6 months) there was a girl who wanted a utility vest. She searched high and she searched low with no luck. She had almost lost all hope until one day, by a random chance, she stumbled across the perfect vest at Sam’s Club. It was a happy, happy ending indeed.
In an attempt to make me feel less awkward about this post I am trying to make light of it. But seriously, I still can’t believe I found the perfect vest for under $20 at Sam’s. I had almost settled for another vest when I finally found exactly what I wanted in a very unexpected place.
I chose to style my vest in three different ways. All three ways are wearing the same jeans (there was no way I was changing pants in that creepy alley) but each look is unique in its own way.
Jeans / Vest *Sams Club*/ Top / Shoes *Walmart*
I kind of just want to point out a couple of things that are HUGE for me #1 I am wearing mustard #2 Hello baby step into pattern mixing. Both of these are really big fashion moments for a girl who only wore gray not even a year ago.
Shirt / Boots
My girls were both insistent that I took this shirt along. I have shared it on the blog before and I still love it just as much. The floral pattern and baseball style scream fall and look perfect with the vest. I see myself wearing this outfit A LOT this fall.
Shirt / Booties
I think of all the looks this was my favorite. I had meant to bring a scarf along to show another layer, but I totally forgot to grab one. This shirt is amazing, the fit, price, and softness are unbeatable. This is also the first pair of booties I ever purchased and now I am convinced I need more.
So there you have it, 3 ways I plan to live (yes live) in my vest this fall and these are just a few ways I can wear it with jeans. I haven’t even got around to leggings, dresses or skirts yet?!
Make sure you check out how Becky, Meghan and Whitney styled theirs.
They are bound to be more inspirational than myself :P.
Thanks for letting me play fashion blogger today friends.
