This vest has been around quite awhile. I purchased one in 2014 but ended up passing it along to my oldest daughter because I just could not make it work for me. Seeing it everywhere this fall had me longing for it again so I picked on up from Gray Monroe. It literally hung in my closet from November until this past Saturday when I decided enough was enough!
It was a rainy Saturday here so I pulled out my red wellies and decided I needed something on top that was fun. I love the Halogen sweater I picked up last summer during the Nordstrom anniversary sale and it has been in the rotation a lot this fall and winter. See how I styled it with stripes here.
I have had my eye on this Clare V leopard clutch for at least a year but could not justify the price. Thankfully I was one of the lucky ones to snag a very close look alike from Gray Monroe in November. It is currently sold out but if you visit the website you can sign up for a restock notice and they should be available again soon. Totally a bargain as the quality and price are super!
I decided I loved the casual look so much the vest deserved a chance in the workplace. I paired it with a softened denim shirt, my very fave plaid scarf and a black skirt. For kicks I decided to throw in one more pattern and sported my leopard heels. I’m thinking this works!
While this could tackle work as well, I’m thinking all black calls for a girls night or a a date with my man. Every once in awhile it is so fun to go back to my old ways and a monochromatic look! The sweater from J. Crew Factory still has a few sizes remaining. I also have it in red with gold dots and shown here and it is also on sale. Of course the Stella & Dot rebel pendant always makes it’s own statement.
My pants are ponte leggings from White House Black Market. I love them because they are comfortable and actually button and have pockets so they are more like a pant than leggings. I always feel great when I wear them. And what can I say….splurging on these Ugg boots during the anniversary sale was a total win. They are so comfortable!
This purple dress made itself at home last February (similar here) and it has been a year round favorite. Here is how I originally wore it here. Pairing it together with the herringbone vest and a long forgotten scarf gave it new life.
