I’ve become a big fan of vests these days. I have a few in my closet, ranging from a couple athletic + outdoor puffer vests, to a cargo vest, to quilted vests in solid navy, herringbone and this red plaid one. (I think I have a bit of an obsession after seeing all the vests I just typed out- sheesh!)
But I’ve talked about my love for them before: these vests add an extra layer of warmth without overheating, which is perfect for those in between temperatures in spring and fall. And they can add the perfect finishing layer on an otherwise plain outfit.
For this week’s mom style series, I took the vest I wore in volume 1 of my mom style series and made two more looks, taking it from casual chic to sporty stylish with just a few swaps. The 1st look was inspired by this pin I found. The different patterns work well, and the cognac boots are a nice touch (and if I added a bag to the look, I’d go with my this cognac tote that I purchased last month.) Then to swap it out for something more sporty, I swapped the necklace for a scarf, the jeans for leggings and boots for basic black Nike sneakers. Super comfy, but still put together. This swap worked well for me when we were out and about running errands in the morning, then I made a few swaps to transform the look for a playdate at the park and a family walk. How’s that for remixing…and less laundry?! WIN!
