Utility Vest

Hello friends~ happy Monday! I'm sorry I've been a bit MIA in terms of blogging/commenting/etc. I'm running out of data on my phone a lot sooner than expected this month, and we've had such nice weather that I'd rather be outside than on a computer! We are hoping to get internet at our house (finally!) in the next couple weeks, so hopefully it will make blogging a ton easier! (and allow us to binge watch new shows on Netflix...)

On to today's outfit post...

I've seen so many bloggers styling utility vests all year round! I've had my eye out for one for awhile now, but they are always sold out of my size in stores. Old Navy had a pretty good sale on them online a few weeks ago, but of course they were sold out in my size! I did the store check online, and it said an Old Navy about 20 minutes away from me *might* have one in stock. I called them, was on hold for forever, and they had one in stock! I actually think it was the last one in the store, because when I picked it up, I saw zero vests anywhere!

Vest: Old Navy
Shorts: Gap
Tank: Gap
Sandals: Target
Necklace: The Limited

 I've already been pinning different outfits to wear my new vest with, and I can already tell it's going to be perfect all year round! I'm very excited for the pockets, because I can just throw whatever in them instead of carrying around a purse or trying to shove things in my pants pockets. They've come especially in handy during dog walks :)

And if you look in the next picture, you can see my streak of white hair! I'm not that fond of it; hubby thinks it's cool.

But, I will look just like Anna, Stacy London, and Rogue!


I've also been wearing this vest quite a few days since I got it last week. (okay... almost everyday) Here is the only other outfit photo I have. I wore it with my striped maxi and fun sandals to the movies:

And here is how I used to smile when I was 2....

  1. I love my ON utility vest! They really are so versatile!

  2. I have had my eye on that vest all summer! I hope it's not too late!


  3. I've worn almost the same outfit, great minds think alike :)

  4. So happy you got your hand on the vest. yay for getting internet in your house.

  5. I love these vests, but you're right - they are hard to track down in the right size! So I've just stuck with my utility jacket so far, but it works the exact same way (loooove it with stripes), just not on the hottest days of the year :) Cute with the denim shorts too!

  6. Beautiful!


  7. This style of vest is one missing from my closet. Hopefully next time I am in the states, Old Navy has a new version of them because I hear the ON ones are pretty awesome. You look great. =)

    And girl I have had gray hair since I was 18. It sucks!!

  8. This vest looks great on you! I've been debating whether or not to get this exact one because I'm not typically a vest person, but your outfit makes me highly consider it! I love the dotted tank you paired with it! And you can totally rock the white streak!

  9. I've been wanting a utility vest (what blogger doesn't), and Old Navy is my go-to - love yours! And this outfit is so adorable!
