i really love my.....utility vest

how to style a military vest, how to wear a utility vest

Here's the truth- I think I'm a pretty normal 20 something. I'm 27, have a great job that pays the bills but  doesn't afford me monthly beach vacations and live in one of the most expensive cities in the country. So what does that all add up to? It adds up to having to wear the same things more than once. *GASP*(not). I'm assuming you're probably in a similar boat and not at all shocked but this truth but I gotta put it out there just in case you were under some impression that I'm always wearing new things. I think I'm pretty upfront about these things but you never know what was lost in translation along the way :)

So because we're all presumably in the same boat of wearing the same thing more than once, I'm going to start a new series around here called "I really love my....." to round up and share some ways I remixed the same piece.  I'm hoping that it will also inspire me to figure out new ways to that piece too. Eh eh? What do you think?

It's easy to start with my utility vest because I clearly LOVE it. It took me awhile to hunt one down I loved at a price point I was comfortable with because it's still a pretty trendy piece despite how often I wear it. Utility vests may seem hard to style because they are a bit masculine but I think you'll find it easier than you thought to style  I try to counterbalance the masculinity by wearing it over feminine pieces like a sequins tank or summery sundress. If you're thinking about adding a utility vest to your wardrobe- seriously don't hesitate. I promise you can wear it so many ways! See below for some suggestions....

PS- Linking up with Lauren for Mix it Monday today!


  1. Definitely in the same boat! This is a great idea for a series - it's always nice to see how you can style one piece so many different ways! This utility vest is definitely not an exception, I think I might need to bust mine out again!
