My New Favorite Outfit: A Utility Vest Three Ways

A Utility Vest Three Ways



I'm excited to be collaborating with Heather at Style Journey and Inge at This Ever Evolving Life to show
you three ways to style a utility vest.  I've ogled over Heather and Inge's vests for quite sometime, but it just got my recently on super clearance at JC Penney and have been wearing it like crazy! The first time I wore it on the blog I wore it like this, and if you follow me on Instagram you've seen it a few times on there too.  Today I decided to pair it with my new navy striped dress I got from Gap for $6. New for $6. I actually laughed when she told me the total.  I wish a big thanks to whoever returned this gem, so I could get it for a steal. I'm crazy about this combo and love the gingham touch the button down adds too. Make sure to stop by Heather and Inge's blogs to get the details to their great looks too.

  13. Do you ever put together an outfit that doesn't totally rock? Rhetorical. The answer is certainly no.

  14. You ladies look fantastic, and I love how all 3 of you incorporated prints! I really like that you styled yours over a dress, because I think utility vests are so cute and unexpected with dresses and skirts.
