For all my How I Met Your Mother fans out there, you all know Barney Stinson’s famous line, “suit up”.
Today I wanted to talk to you all about, VESTS!!!! Let me tell you all a secret, I used to hate vests. I thought they were tacky and because of the unhealthy number of vests my grandfather owned, I associated them with …ahem…the older “crowd”.
Oh but I was wrong.
I can’t tell you how much I love this blue vest I got from J.Crew over Christmas break!!
Can we just admire this colour for a second?! I am someone who sticks to very basic colours. My wardrobe consists of black, white, grey and more black. It is very rare that I ever wear anything this colourful. But since it is winter, the weather is way too depressing not to bring a little colour back into life.
What I love about this vest is how sturdy the quality is! It does not feel flimsy at all and the material is very high quality! The pockets on the side are perfect to put my phone in or a wallet if I’m on the go and I don’t want to bring a purse! When the weather isn’t too cold, this vest paired with a thick sweater underneath is enough and a jacket isn’t necessary at all!
I chose to pair this vest with a white sweater because I just love how the colours contrast each other!
Although, I have to say a black or even grey sweater would be perfect as well!!! Also, I have to give credit to this vest for looking amazing in photos especially in the snow! It literally POPS!! So ladies please take this opportunity to, “vest up” and get some colour in your wardrobe if you’re like me and you only stick to neutrals!!
I’m now on a serious hunt to buy as many vests as I can! If anyone has suggestions please leave a comment!!
