Outfits File: The Utility Vest

Happy Monday, hope your weekend was great! We enjoyed lots of sunshine and took advantage of the beautiful weather up until the very last ray of light 🙂 I managed to have a productive and relaxing weekend (I think I’m getting the hang of this whole weekend balancing act) and I’m definitely ready to tackle the week!

Utility vests are the Summer versions of the utility jackets you wear in Spring and Fall, and I love them because they are a great way to add a layer while still keeping your look weather appropriate. I personally love the contrast with delicate pieces such as eyelet tops and dresses and I definitely consider them a Summer wardrobe staple. The one I’m wearing is an oldie from Forever 21, but I found three similar ones here, here and here.
