wear: work it wednesday.

i haven't joined in on work it wednesday for a while, so today i thought i'd highlight one of my favorite things in my closet: The Vest.
i mentioned in another post that it's very rare for me to pay full-price for clothing unless i'm at forever21 or some other cheap spot. but this vest was not only a gift (that i picked out for myself with a gift card), i consider it an investment. (jon, if you're reading this, don't laugh. i know how you feel about "investing" money into clothing. ha! )
i knew i'd be able to wear this year round with countless outfits.

so far, i feel like it has lived up to my expectations.

this summer i wore it to an outdoor music festival...

and a night of dancing...

this fall i wore it casually...
 

and a little bit dressy...

and lately i've worn it cozy...

and layered...

i can't wait to wear it with a long-sleeved, striped dress hanging in my closet and i think it'd look really cute with wedge booties and a maxi skirt, too! (<---inspired by jill's work it wednesday post today!)

  1. gorgeous, gorgeous, gorgeous... I'm so jeal of your hair right now, just cut mine and missing my locks already (it was only like 4 inches... I'm a little over-dramatic).
