New Year Styled: Utility Vest + Link-Up
Military vest? Utility vest? Cargo vest? Regardless of what you call it, this was one of my first blog-inspired purchases. When I first started reading style blogs, I will admit to buying many items because I wanted to be just like the bloggers who inspired me. Most of those purchases have since been donated but this vest is here to stay! It really has been a great layering and point of interest piece to add to outfits. I'm still so happy that I purchased mine in this pretty purple color instead of the traditional olive green because it is very me.
I usually wear this vest with neutral combinations. A great example of a typical outfit featuring the vest is this ensemble that I wore this exact week but last year!
For my New Year Styled challenge with The Blended Blog this week, I wanted to do something a little bit different than I've done before. So I added color! I started by finding a scarf that went well with the vest and built my outfit from there. I'm so pleased with the results. I think this is one of my favorite outfits I've created recently!
