I actually thrifted this vest quite some time ago, but I haven’t worn it because I didn’t really know how to wear it. You would think it would be relatively easy to style, given its neutral color…but I just couldn’t find the right pieces in my closet. I recently acquired both this ivory blouse and the tan mule booties that happen to match the vest perfectly, so I seized the opportunity to try out the combination.
It’s pretty simple, but I really like the look. It was perfect for a day of grocery shopping (amongst crazy pre-Thanksgiving crowds!) and cooking. But now I need more inspiration…how would you wear a shearling vest?
As I mentioned in the budget post when I bought this scarf, I’ve been stalking it for YEARS. So you better believe that once the temperature dipped low enough to merit wearing a blanket scarf, I pulled it out pretty darn quick.
I love how this scarf looks with burgundy, but I’m second-guessing my decision to wear the ivory vest–it might have looked more cohesive to wear a black “completer piece.” Still, I was pretty comfy and cozy. I’m publishing this post on Thanksgiving Day here in the US, and this outfit would be perfectly appropriate for a casual Turkey Day gathering.
Speaking of…Happy Thanksgiving! I hope you get a chance to count your blessings with a side of pumpkin pie!
I’ll be honest and say that there isn’t anything terribly exciting about this outfit. How’s that for a hook? But I decided to take pictures just to get back in the habit after taking a brief hiatus following the Common Threads Challenge.
It’s hard to believe that there was once a time in my life when I was unwilling to wear black and brown together…EVER. Now, I do it on the daily; it’s kind of my thing. I think this outfit would have been a bit too boring if I had stuck with only black as the neutral. The cognac boots and bag seem to add a sense of “warmth” if that makes any sense. Stay tuned for more (interesting) outfit posts!
