Sweater Vest


I hope you’ve all had a wonderful week and are looking forward to the weekend ahead! We have a wedding to attend tomorrow and I’m so relieved and happy to say that my rental dress (from Rent the Runway) has arrived and fits perfectly, phew! That saves me a day of running around like a maniac in search of the perfect dress, haha! I shared a peek last night on Snapchat (mczerby) and I got the approval from a few of you, so thanks ;)

On another note, I have decided to do a shopping freeze for the month of October (gasp). I know, I know, a style blogger that’s not shopping you say?! I do this every now and then in order to keep myself in check and to make sure my grip on ‘stuff’ doesn’t get too tight. Talk about the worst timing as we are just entering fall (my fav) but I was feeling the nudge and now that it’s in writing you can all hold me accountable….and you’re welcome to join me if you’re up for it ;) Now to make sure there aren’t any ‘necessities’ I need to pick up today! Kidding!

On to the outfit…I’m wrapping up this week’s discussion on fall vests and this cashmere number (from TJMaxx!) is such a fantastic staple to have on hand. Any neutral colored sweater vest for that matter would serve the purpose of adding some warmth and style to the simplest of outfits. I tend to lean towards the cooler tones in clothing, but these warm shades are just all too perfect for autumn and I couldn’t pass it up.

One final side note, this post has nothing to do with Target, but do you like how they got their little cameo here?! Too funny.

    Love the outfit ! An outfit that can be worn many places. I’m with you on the shopping ban. I’m feeling a little out of control and need to practice more self -control and be content with my bursting closet.
