The Vest


My love of vests has been increasingly growing over the years. I started with the shawl/sweater vests which hooked me while I was pregnant since they always fit, moved on to denim vests and most recently the military/cargo vests. I love them because they can add much interest to an outfit without being too overbearing. Additionally though, vests can be very helpful in adding some coverage when necessary. This maxi-dress, for example, is a favorite of mine, but the halter top and exposed back leave it inappropriate for certain occasions. I wore this outfit to church yesterday and the vest not only fixed the issue of having a bit too much exposed, but also turned it into an outfit as opposed to just a dress. I’ve owned this particular maxi dress for years, but I’ve linked to various other options below, most of which are on sale!







This would be my stunning SIL. She was in town for the weekend visiting with friends and we were thrilled to get to spend some time with her!
