Put a Vest on It

- Outfits

I wore this to work last casual Friday and it was super comfy.  I honestly was running 20 minutes late that day so I didn’t have a lot of time to decide what to wear… then my bright gingham blouse looked right at me and said “CHOOSE ME” so I did.  But something still didn’t feel right.  Too blah, too plain, I needed another layer of course and just as I was about to give up and deal with my outfit the way it was I saw my sleeves sweater vest hanging all by itself.  It had been awhile since I had worn it and I knew it would keep me warm, add another layer and be great for a Friday in the office.

    Layering the sweater and shirt was the perfect way to dress it up. And I love the bright pink paired with your neutral grays and blacks. Perfect for a casual fall day!

    I love it when running late days actually turn into cute outfits rather than boring or weirdly mismatched ensembles, haha. Love this combo, it’s slightly punk with the black, gray, and pink, and the color looks great on you!

    I am a huge fan of vests, they’re such a great layering piece. (and extra warmth for winter!) I love the bright, punchy look of the bright pink and black together, it’s very striking.

    Rachel, I made the experience when I run late I picked the most cute outfit :-), so is this look. That colour of your gingham shirt flatters you and layering with the vest makes it perfect :-)
