Twelve Ways to Wear: The Herringbone Vest

You all know how crazy I am about my herringbone vest,  Meghan suggested I do a re-mix with this vest and I thought it was an amazing idea. Now the J.Crew, my Coldwater Creek, and the Shopko versions are all sold out but Kohl's has a similar one out that is sill available.

 Today I'll show you 12 ways to wear my favorite vest! To do this I used 20 pieces to create 12 looks.   Many of these pieces I used today were interchangeable, so it made creating outfits pretty easy.  Now a few of them are Pinspired, but really I think this vest might go with everything! Also, I think bloggers like Audrey have the right idea, taking blog pictures inside is so much easier!!! Here are my twelve looks and I've added details about each one down below.





Have you entered my giveaway for $200 in Amazon cash yet?

This first look is actually the first way I wore the vest and I love it with the pop of red on the scarf. 


  chambray / scarf / bracelets / jeans / boots

Buying this scarf was such a great piece to add to my closet this fall and I love how it goes together with the vest, you wouldn't think it would work, but it totally does! I got the idea for this combo here.

This outfit was the second way I styled this vest and I love the pop of color with my Stella and Dot necklace.

I love this outfit! I got the idea to add the plaid scarf from Whitley and I love how it came together!

I got the idea for this look here. I love everything about my red jeans and am glad to get to wear them with my vest.

I also got the inspiration for this look here, I switched it up and wore a buttoned-up cardigan and a chambray and can't wait to wear it!

This look has been my go-to weekend look....I think I've worn it the past three weekends, really.  I love the ease of it and really need to invest in some more great striped shirts like this one.

The sweater here is actually more pink and I added the pop of neon with my necklace to give this vest a brighter look.  I love how it came together!



I wasn't sure about this vest with a skirt, but decided the shape of my red one would be worth trying with this and I LOVE it.  My naked legs might cry as I walk into school, but it'll be worth it. : )


  chambray  / scarf  / bracelets / skirt / shoes

I decided to try this vest with a different skirt and I ended up trying the trifecta of pattern mixing: stripes, leopard, and herringbone.  I kind of love it. The pop of teal with the skirt is fun but this is totally translatable to jeans for another look too!

When I tried this vest on in the store I happened to have this shirt on and like the unexpected combo.  I decided to try these booties with it instead of flats and love the way it looks!



Lastly I tweaked the outfit above to add my infinity scarf  and riding boots. This casual look will be a great on for weekends!

Overall, I had so much fun creating different looks for this vest and I know I'll be able to create a ton more too.  So far I've only had the chance to wear three of these in real life, so I'm so excited to have an excuse to wear this vest every week until I've had a chance to wear them all. : )  So, what do you think?  Which one is your favorite?

  14. It's crazy how different it makes a look feel zipped versus unzipped. And I LOVE it with the tealy/turquoise skirt! I can't pick a favorite though. The herringbone with stripes is way up there though. So many great ideas!
