My Threads: Shirt: H&M, Jeans: Hollister, Vest: Old Navy, Belt: Target, Clutch: Nordstrom Rack, Necklace and Bracelets: Forever 21, Wedges: ?, Watch: Michael Kors

When this vest appeared at Old Navy a while back, I was pretty bummed I didn't manage to snatch one up before they sold out. Then I sulked for several months, sighing every time someone styled one on their blog. I have no idea why I wanted a simple utility vest so much, but I did. A few weeks ago, the khaki color reappeared on the site, and I leapt for joy. And bought one, of course.

Now I'm all kinds of ready to store tools, important papers, and knick knacks in all the pockets. Or maybe just some snacks. 

Since I'm telling stories, you may have noticed this isn't my usual MK watch. Or you probably didn't, since it always looks tiny in pictures. Anyway, Marc and I spotted this watch in Ross (for over half off!) after I had been eyeing it online. Since it's a men's watch, Marc and I decided to go halvesies on it and share it. So in the morning, we have to ask each other if we're planning on wearing the watch. Fortunately, we haven't started asking each other this question about the rest of or clothes or accessories. Yet. 

Do you ever borrow things from your significant other?


  1. Is this vest still online? I need to check it out...Love it!!

    And yes...but really only his socks :-) Not anywhere as cool as you guys sharing that watch.

  2. I love this look, the different colours and the gingham. Very cute.

    I've just started borrowing my husband's sweaters. They look oversized on me and give a totally different look than mine.


  3. Emily, you are so stinking cute. I love that gingham shirt and have had my eye on one for a long time. It looks great with the vest!


  4. Ok, so how do you get your hair in those perfect curls everyday?! So cute!

    And, I may borrow my husband's leather jacket from time to time! :)

  5. haha..yes I use my boyfriends watches all the time, also his shirts and sweaters! Pretty much everything except his pants lol That vest is really cute and there are so many ways to style it.

  6. I would never be able to pull this off, but you look so adorable. I love the glitter belt!

  14. Love this outfit, including the vest... And I haven't borrowed a watch from my husband, but now I'm considering it :)

  15. I love vests right now! I actually have the Old Navy vest, sorry you missed it but yours is great too. I am searching now for a puffy vest for cheap.....

  16. Love this vest so jealous! And I am always getting into my husbands stuff!(half the time he doesn't even know ha)

  17. This outfit is too cute! I love the gingham and vest combo!


  18. Love this outfit! I just got that vest too. ;) I haven't posted it yet, although I have worn it with a bright blue dress.
    I frequently steal my hubby's button-up shirts to wear with my leggings. They are just the right length and so cozy and comfy. ;)

  19. adorable vest! yes I frequently steal accessories from my fiance haha. Luckily he doesn't mind too much :)

  20. Haha, too funny about the watch. I think the only things I borrow from my boy are sweatshirt-like things when I'm cold and just want to curl up on the couch.

    Also: you are making me think I need a gingham top, because this is cute.

  21. You're totally right, love the vest! Stopped by from WIWW. Totally checkin' out that vest. Waaay too many of my clothes are from Old Navy right now, but it's working! =)

  22. hahaha! i love how you all share that mk watch, my fiance may or may not know I borrowed his vintage casio watch! I love those vests, scooped both colors in January for $6 each! you're always SO cute and I have to dig my vest out now that you've inspired me!

  23. ha ha Love it. The only time I wear my hubbies watch is in desperation of needing to be using a watch for some reason (it's really not one a girl could rock) you look great that shirt is SO, so sweet. Thanks for joining in with Wardrobe Weds :-)

  24. Loving everything about this outfit! The vest, the shoes and your hair - it looks GORGEOUS! I'm hosting a new link-up about bargains and I noticed some of your stuff if from H&M and F21, you should totally link-up this post :)

  25. I always borrow item from my better half, it's always so easy to incorporate into my wardrobe too! I love how you layered the gingham with the vest. GORGEOUS!


  26. Love the gingham with that vest - so cute! And it's adorable that you guys share the it!

  27. I wish Ross had a MK watch I could borrow because my face just shattered on mine. :( You look flawless as ever....I swear...I have said it before, but you are truly gorg!! Thanks for linking up this week!

  28. Old Navy has been surprising me lately! Hadn't been in there for years and then all of a sudden happened on one of my favorite shirts! Love the vest! Now I want one!

  29. pink gingham check? Yes please! I love pink with army green and browns, it makes it so much less barffy (Normally I hate pink). I am also very jealous of everyone and their cargo pocket vests! I have not been able to locate one for myself.

  30. I love the gingham/vest combo! I've been wanting to get a similar utility style vest for a while now. I just wanted to let you know I nominated you for the Liebster award on my blog here. If you have a chance go check it out and I'd love to see you do a post to learn more about you!
