A versatile vest

So I got this vest and I’ve been wearing it pretty much constantly since the moment I brought it home. The weather is perfect for it, where I live, and I know in just a few short weeks we’ll be hitting temperatures in the 80’s and it will be too hot for it!

Thus, I will maximize wear while I can!

I would argue that you can pair this vest withΒ pretty much any outfit, but below are a few ways I’ve loved to wear it!

I am a big lover of vests year round and I live where Summer’s are hot and humid, They work since time is spent in airconditioning… I agree this one is extremely versatile and adds a great touch to any look. I love the idea with the coral dress you pictured. I too am styling a vest today on my blog, the longer style..

This vest is great! The neutral color makes it go with everything. I have a jacket similar ot this, but the vest would probably be able to be paired with a lot more!

I bought a vest very similar to this last spring from Target, and love to wear it on our casual Fridays with a simple tee, skinny jeans and my Sperry’s. It’s more a green than this lighter army green (which I do love)… but still feel that it’s neutral enough to wear with other colors than just white, black and gray. Love the ideas!

I’ve been wearing your vest’s identical twin CONSTANTLY! And I agree. You really can pair it with anything. I’m nervous people will just start referring to me as “the girl with the green vest”….then again that sounds kind of cool…. πŸ™‚

That vest is awful! And no, it does not go with every outfit. You need shopping help.

I bought the target version and get lots of compliments. It does go with a lot… Jeans, skirts, dresses, spring scarves…!

I dig it. The vest itself is really intriguing & detailed. It has versatility. Regardless of price, if you can utilize it a lot, it’s worth it. :]

I don’t own one of these because I totally don’t know how to style it! But I think the tshirts and jeans gives a nice relaxed vibe. Love!

I also bought a similar vest at Target, but it’s different than the one Joelle posted. I love the fit and color, and I’m excited to try out Kate’s outfit ideas! Link below:

I second the question about your necklace!! The necklace in the link is cute, but the one you’re wearing is FAB! I love it! The vest is cute too πŸ˜‰

Ahhh I have been hunting for a good lower-priced dupe of this vest! Love all the outfit ideas and I’m going to need to stalk Target until I find the one everyone is mentioning.

I bought one of these from Marshalls and I love it. I pair it with black leggings and a loose fitting T-shirt and its the perfect “styled yet casual” outfit for me to wear while chasing my kids around

This vest will definitely find its way into my shopping cart very soon! I love the many options you have when styling it! Xo, Stephanie

Bought this vest in the tan color yesterday at 40% off. I’m hoping the tan will pair as well as the army green! So cute!
