best fall/winter wardrobe investment

Broke?
Feel guilty shopping for yourself when you should be saving for Christmas?
Hate shopping {p.s. we can't be friends ;)}?
Good news!
Even if all those things are true, there is just one item you MUST buy to update your fall/winter wardrobe. In my humble opinion anyway.

A vest.
Invest in a vest. 
Or several.

 I own several vests and they have quickly become one of my go-to pieces in my closet.
Second only to my beloved scarf collection.
A vest can be practical - keeps your bod warm on days you don't feel like wearing a coat - but it can also add an interesting aspect to an otherwise plain outfit.
Here are some of my favorites:

Vests


1. Military inspired {similar}
2. Denim {similar}
3. Patterned
4. Sophisticated {similar}
5. Cozy knit
6. Faux fur
7. Puffer
8. Studded

I dress my vests up and down.
I wear them to work, out with friends, running errands, on a date with the hubs - pretty much everywhere and anytime the mood strikes me.
Throw it over an old sweater, a plaid or chambray button down, a t-shirt, anything!
Seriously, I treat a vest like I treat a scarf.
They go with EVERYTHING!

 My favorite vest is one that I recently purchased from Old Navy.
Here's how my chipmunk face and I wore it this weekend:

{vest {similar}, shoes, jeans {similar}, button down: Old Navy; watch: Kohls; bracelet {not available online}: H&M}

I was a walking Old Navy advertisement!
You're welcome, ON :)

So, what are your thoughts on vests?
What's your favorite way to rock one?

Vests are like the best wardrobe addition ever. You still have your arms free, but your core is warm. You just reminded me I need to get a few more (I just shrunk a sweater vest in the dryer...oops). I love how you wore the vest and flannel with those boots and jewelry. It's casual, but really cute.

You don't have to sell me! I am sold! Love my khaki one I got from ON. I am now on the hunt for a fur one! :) Love the walk advertisement you put together!! :) So adorable!! And isn't that shirt the best?

Niki Caron said...

I love a good vest! I am dying for a new faux fur one!

Chelsea said...

GIMME THAT OUTFIT. Holly, I need it. I might have to go find it and become your clone. Do you like how I said I was going to go to ON for that sale and then I didn't go? S.O.S.

You're SO right about vests! They're practical but they also add more interest to an outfit and can really pull a look together!
