The Modern Classic Vest

Thursday, December 29, 2016

If there's one thing that I've been giddy about this December - it's vests! Perfect in cool or snowy weather, they're truly your best friend during this transition into Winter. I've worn this on simple errand days and dressed up when I attended my daughter's first dance recital a couple of weeks ago. Madison performed amazingly for her first time and I quickly figured out that she loves the spotlight! That's my sassy Madison for yah and I couldn't have been more proud! 

These are the moments that I really look forward to as a mama with young kiddos. They're finally old enough to where I can enjoy watching Austin's football games and seeing Madison dance her heart out in Ballet and Hip Hop. While they're still young (ages 6 and 9), I want them to participate in a variety of extracurricular activities to see what most interests them. It makes them more well-rounded, encourages social skills, team work, all while staying active. It's a lot of running around for me, but that's why I have great pieces like this to wear, no matter the occasion.      

What I love most about this vest is the extended length to a traditional style vest. This trend of lengthened cardigans, vests, and coats are something I've embraced wholehearted, as it's flattering, gives me the appearance that I'm taller, and is a nice modern take on a classic piece. 

Here, I have worn this long vest two ways to show it's versatility. The first look is dressed up for days at work, attending church or joining friends for dinner. You can even wear this belted, which also looks amazing.  The second look is perfect for casual days. Along with a lightweight turtleneck and jeans, you can elevate your look with one simple piece.  Flats, hunter rain boots, and booties all compliment well with your favorite pair of jeans. Keep reading below for more details and other long vest options to check out ... which many are currently on sale!
