Cargo Vest Then & Now

This weekend was gloriously relaxing. We didn't have any plans, we just hung out with Jona, ate good food, and enjoyed the beautiful weather. I also stopped by the Gap to use the Gap cash I earned when I bought a bunch of stuff on sale for Jona. I bought three items to complete my fall capsule wardrobe: the jeans shown here, blue corduroy pants, and a gray sweater. The jeans were a bit spur of the moment; they're replacing the other pair of skinny jeans I had. They were one of those that I liked at the beginning of the day but hated by day's end. Since I'm trying to create a wardrobe I love, the jeans had to go.

The cool weather this weekend called for light layers, so I once again broke out the cargo vest. It's gotten so much wear, both in the heat of the summer and the early fall weather we're having now.

  1. I love how you styled your vest - I want to try a striped shirt look with mine, so I'll have to use yours as inspiration! Sounds like a great weekend with your boys - I am looking forward to a similar one next weekend with mine! How is it that Fall gets so dang busy??

  2. such a gorgeous look! i'm crushing on that vest, and you have me thinking a trip to GAP might be necessary for some fall essentials (can you believe it's already fall weather??)

  3. Cute look and I like the addition of the red toms.

  4. The vest, striped shirt, and red shoes go so well together!


I really appreciate hearing from you!
