summer to fall transition. the utility vest.

utility vest, cargo vest, surplus vest...
whatever you call it, this was probably one of the best purchases i made a few years ago. i have since [obsessed over and] purchased many utility jackets, but this sleeveless vest proved to be most versatile. it makes a great summer-to-fall transition piece because you can layer up without being too warm. so happy to finally be able to pull this one out of the closet again.

what's one of your best purchases?
do you have a summer-to-fall transition piece?

(GAP pure tee; ON vest; Nine West sneakers (similar);

try these:


  1. The color combination of brown and black is one that I am loving. I just recently posted about this color combo! This look is fantastic!

  2. vest are always my go to item. I just wore my green vest this this one on Wednesday. I sure do love how they go with everything.

  3. Suits you perfectly. Right size, right shape, right color.

  4. I've never been a fan of vests, but I'm one of those people who is uncomfortable if my arms are cold so hah, it's really not made for me. This one looks really cute on you, and seems like the pockets are actually big enough to be useful.

    I'm the laziest transitioner, I just stick tights or leggings on, or long sleeved shirts, beneath a large majority of my summer clothing. Of course most of my wardrobe isn't made for that and so there's a lot of annoying bunching and clinging and weirdness but I persevere to avoid spending more money on clothes :P

  5. I only own one vest, I love it, but I probably need to branch out to more styles :) I love the combo of black and brown, very cute!

  6. I bought the olive green version and I totally agree! I wish I would have both this version as well! Great look!

  7. that vest is so cool! love your shorts! very cute outfit becks.

  8. I absolutely love this casual look. The vest and the patterned shorts look so edgy but relaxed together!


  9. what a great look! i love the vest paired with those cool shorts! you rock!

  10. yes! a versatile piece for any time of year, but esp now. great choice!

  11. You look fab! Love the vest, perfect for this time of year.

  12. I love your vest. I really need to start wearing vests more often. I think my all time best purchase was splurging on really great fitting designer jeans.

  13. this outfit is awesome! i just love those kinds of vest, i wear mine all the time!
