Magical Cargo Vest

My Threads: Tee: H&M (similar), Skirt: H&M (similar), Vest: Old Navy (similar jacket), Booties: Lauren Ralph Lauren, Bag: Nine West (similar), Necklace and Bracelets: Forever 21, Watch: Michael Kors (similar)

This outfit sort of happened by accident. My shirt kept bunching up and making my skirt look all lumpy, and I sort of thought the combination was boring. So I almost didn't shoot it. Then I spotted this vest hanging in my closet with a halo of light shining around it and a choir singing its name. So I put it on. And it was like magic! Lumpy skirt and boring pairing problems solved.

The super spastic weather has gotten a tiny bit warmer during the day this week, so I ventured outside without tights. It was cold. But it seemed like tights would kind of ruin this outfit. Unless I had maroon ones. Which I don't. I actually look in the mirror several mornings and think my outfit would look better without tights. But alas, I really hate being cold. I know, I shouldn't complain about the 60 degree weather. So sorry to those if you in snow. I am jealous of how pretty your pictures look! But not of how badly the air hurts where you are.

Have a happy Thursday!

  9. I absolutely HATE being cold as well!

    I think maybe charcoal tights would have worked for this outfit? But yeah, too many outfits could have easily improved if I didn't have to wear tights (ugh with the weird skirt bunching and static cling) but it's just too cold for me to go without them. Everything looks good without tights!

    And PS the vest is a perfect addition!

  10. Hey girl! Wanted to stop by your blog to check it out after you left that sweet comment the other day. I am so glad that I did- I love it and am your newest follower :)
