Utility Vest, A Spring Wardrobe Staple



Vest: Macy’s- American Rag Shirt: J. Crew Factory Jeans: T.J. Maxx- Michael Kors, Similar, Similar Necklace: Old-J. Crew Factory, Similar, Similar Shoes: BCBGeneration Bag:Louis Vuitton

Happy Monday! I can’t believe the weekend is already over; wasn’t it just Friday? Anyways, this weekend we went to Jake’s parents on Friday night. It is always nice to see his family! I feel super blessed to have a wonderful family and to have wonderful in-laws. We’re so truly blessed. Daylight savings time really got to us on Sunday morning, but I am excited about more light during the day.


This Friday was pay day, which means we got to dress in casual Friday clothes. I wore this fun utility vest and gingham look since it was pretty chilly. One thing you need in your closet for spring is a utility vest. They’re warm, fun, and fashionable…what’s better than that?

To make this look a little more dressy for work, I wore a statement necklace and heel booties. It was still very casual, but it helped dress it up a bit. If it was a causal Friday where I had meetings with clients, I wouldn’t have worn this, but it was a day I knew I could dress casual.

What did everyone do this weekend?

      Aunt Jac.. that is a great idea! I really haven’t done much art lately, but after that sweet lady did a painting of me it kind of inspired me. I really should get back into it. <3
