OOTD- Vested Interest

I felt like my wardrobe was missing a good vest, so when this popped up on Old Navy's website, I thought it would be a perfect little addition. However, when I tried to style it over the weekend, I felt like it was giving me a sailor/fisherman vibe. I suppose the belt with the anchor buckle I tried to put on wasn't helping either. Given the inherent casualness of this vest, I thought I would take a stab at making it work...for work. I didn't feel like all I needed was a fishing pole and some bait, but you can bet I would be prepared anyway with all of these pockets.

Is there an item you feel is missing from your wardrobe?

  1. very nice outfit,you did a great job styling the vest.
    love the lavender shoes and handbag!

  2. BAD CALL letting me know where you got that bag, because now I wants it! Even more so now that I know it's affordable and not some vintage Minkoff that'll make me want to ransack your closet, haha!

    I loe you in that est - I've kind of been considering a similar vest for fall after seeing SJP wear something like it on an old ep of SATC.

  3. That's a super cute outfit!! Me likey :)

  4. adorable! i picked up a military vest from j.crew around this time last year and need to pull that mother out. xo-c

  5. Love the outfit. especially that vest and that hand bag is FABulous!

  6. Oh I really like your lilac studded purse! I haven't seen anything like it in that colour before. It's great!

  7. Thanks! I was set on getting a bag in this color for the spring/summer and it has been great.

  8. Yes! Pull that mother out so that I can "steal" some outfit ideas from you.

  9. Yes, we can be bag twins!! Just be warned that it is really big. No need to ransack my closet, I might be willing to share.

    There is an outfit of SJP from the first movie wearing a vest and you just reminded me of that so I might have to recreate that outfit.

  10. It does remind me of a fishing vest but you definitely made it work with that outfit! Your necklace goes really well with it!

  11. I love this vest! I've seen it a few times now...and I might just have to get in.
