Now, Later and After: Utility Vest

It's kind of that weird fall-but-not time of year where I could potentially wear any of these outfits on any given day and still be weather-appropriate. But we are definitely entering layering season and I do love my layers as you can well see here.

So today's post highlights another one of my layering favorites, the utility vest. Granted the first time I wore this vest out I did get a MacGyver comment from a co-worker ... but what do most men know about style anyways? Since then this piece has become a workhorse in my wardrobe and I adore the opportunity to dress it up and down.

I've seen the fatigue green utility vest around a lot on the blogosphere and I am always looking for new ideas on how to wear mine (or to justify getting another one, hehe ...) - how do you ladies like to wear your vests?

  1. Sadly I haven't found a utility vest that fits properly yet :s I love your combo with the dress though :)
