The Adventure Starts Here: Fall Fashion | The Utility Vest

Fall Fashion | The Utility Vest

This Fall, there are a few pieces in my closet that I know will be worn in heavy rotation.  So far I've shared my chambray shirt and my favorite Fall shoes.  Today, I'm sharing one of my most favorite pieces, the utility vest!  And since I know I'm not the only one who is obsessed with the utility vest trend, I reached out to some of my blogging friends who feel the same way!  Beth at Our Pretty Little Girls, Whitney at Work It Mommy, and Becky at BYBMG are also sharing their favorite ways to style their utility vest today!  

My parents gifted me my utility vest for my birthday this past March.  I am so glad I got it when I did, because not only did I wear it a ton this past Spring, but it also sold out at Gap super fast (as it has again... in most sizes)!  While many of my friends were searching high and low for a vest, I was having fun styling lots of Spring outfits.  While I had to take a break from wearing it this Summer (it's just way too hot and humid here in NJ), I'm so excited to start wearing it again this Fall!  

Here are two outfits that I've styled so far.  And these are just the beginning, the options are absolutely endless!  I'm actually really excited to see and get inspiration from what Beth, Whitney, and Becky came up with!

Outfit 1:
Gingham shirt (from Spring at Loft, but this would create a similar look)

 Outfit 2:
Necklace (old from Loft, similar)

And here are some photos of how I've worn my vest earlier this year.  I love how it completes a simple outfit and can be worn with both jeans (any color) and dresses... it really is so versatile!  

Have you jumped on the utility vest bandwagon???

  1. I've had my eye on your utility vest since spring. I'm trying to find one I like but for a little cheaper than Gap's. Holding out hope! Ha ha! Love the looks.

  2. So cute I am loving that plaid shirt with the vest. Can't wait to wear mine that way. Thanks for inviting me to play along. In the end it was way more fun that I expected.

  3. So cute I am loving it :) Chelsea

  4. I am so, so excited for these posts! I found a utility vest a few weeks ago and now I have so many ideas on how to wear it. I think my favorite is with the black plaid shirt! I have a black and white striped shirt I am pairing it with so far!

  5. I found my vest in the store randomly after it was sold out online and I'm so glad I bought it even though I paid almost full price! It's such a great piece!

  6. Cute!! Love it with the plum shirt. I never would've thought to pair those colors but they look great together!

  7. That plum shirt is SUCH a great color on you!! How does LOFT fit? I swear to you Ive never tried anything on at that store and always hesitate to purchase online since I dont know sizing. And I find it funny gingham isnt availabe to purchase during fall?! Lol

  8. I think my favorite way you wore that was with that black dress! It looks so cute. I wish I had gotten one when they were in stock. I just bought a bunch of LuLaRoe Carly dresses and will need something to keep me warm when it gets "cold" here (maybe? eventually?).
