Happy Wednesday!!

Even with the hopes for Spring to come soon.. the winter weather is still lingering around and the rain/cold isn't going anywhere especially in Seattle! I wore this outfit out for Sunday brunch with good friends and I just wanted to layer up and stay comfy from the cold. I bought this olive vest not too long ago at Forever 21 (not in stores, online only) which I've been searching high and low for a utility vest like this! I just love how you can pair it with just about anything in mind. I kinda wish it was a tad bit shorter since I am pretty short.. but can't complain since it took me a while to find it. lol! Also, I've always had a thing for bows (it just adds that girly touch) so I couldn't pass up on this cute sweater that I found at H&M. It was just sitting there calling out my name! I even told my husband that it was meant to be..... like all my other stuff! hahaha... ;)

How would you style a utility vest?

  3. I like the vest! I don't have any vest actually so I would not have clue to style. Most of the vest I have tried on are a little too long for me :(

    I wouldn't mind a vest with a loose short sleeve top and a flower skirt. I think that might work...:)

  4. I've been wanting a utility vest too and I just couldn't find one that wasn't too expensive. I might have to check out this F21 one but it would probably be even longer on me!

  5. I totally believe that sweater was calling out to you - it's lovely! I would probably style that vest with blue jeans too but I'd pair it with a beige top instead :) xx

  34. Your utility vest is awesome and I love the cute bow sweater! I really like the contrast of girly and tough. Hmmm if I had a utility jacket, I would wear it with a dress although if I also had a bow sweater, I would wear it with that too :D
