Pinspired: Utility Vest

Happy Monday friends! I hope you all had a great weekend! (And happy March! How the heck did that happen so fast??) Before I get to today's post, it's time to announce the winner to my Gordman's giveaway! The winner is...

Valerie Petersen!!

Congrats!! Check your email! And thank you to everyone who entered and who follow my little blog :) It really means a lot to me!

For today's outfit, I decided to copy this pin which encompasses two of my favorites, stripes and vests! I love my utility vest, but for some reason am having a harder time styling it during the winter. Maybe because it's much thinner than all of my other vests? No matter what the reason, Pinterest to the rescue and to give me new ideas!


 Vest: Old Navy (similar)
Tee: The Limited (similar)
Jeans: Loft (similar)
Boots: Just Fab (similar)
Scarf: Thrifted (similar)
Necklace: Groopdealz (similar)
Earrings: Old Navy (similar)



Here are a few other ways I've worn this vest:

  1. Love how you recreated the look! I don't wear my utility vest much in the winter either, and it's definitely because it's not as thick and warm as my puffer vests.

    1. Thanks Inge! I'm hoping now that the weather is starting to warm up a bit I'll be more inspired to bring this vest out more!

  2. This is seriously adorable! I haven't broken out my utility jacket since it doesn't provide any warmth at all! Stripes and leopard are my favorite combo. I'll have to copy this once the weather warms up!

  4. I really wanted to wear my military vest today but it was just too dang cold. I plan on wearing it with my striped top as soon as the weather warms up.

    1. It's too bad it's a thinner material, but I'm sure it will get lots of use this spring!
