Your outfit feeling a bit plain today?
Just keep calm and give it a vest.
Yep, that just happened.

But for real guys, if you want to spruce up a sweater or add some color to an outfit, throw on a vest! I love this quilted vest from Aeropostale because it's not too bulky and has such a flattering fit! It also comes in 6 different colors and the vest best part? IT'S ONLY $16!!! Yes, right now you can get this baby for only 16 buckaroonies. As if there aren't already enough things to love about it, I adore the dark blue lining inside because it's a cool contrast to the red!

I feel very Christmasy in this outfit--probably because it's mostly red and white. I can't believe Christmas is exactly 2 WEEKS away! I don't know about you guys but I still have some last minute shopping I need to do and I better get on that quick because some of them need to be mailed out. Yes, typical Procrastinator, I am. On the other hand, I already got our Christmas cards printed and almost ready to be sent out so that's already better than last year (last year I'm pretty sure I sent them out 3 days before Christmas). I gave you guys a little peek at that photoshoot on Instagram, but I'll share with you our actual Christmas card pic and a few bonus shots soon!

Good luck with all your holiday preparations!
Don't save it to the last minute like me and be kickin' yourself in the end...


  1. The pop of color is perfect. Love, love!! -xx


  2. Love the color of that vest! My favorite puffer vests are from JCrew!

  3. First time visitor, stopping by from Spotlight Weekly link-up and I’m sooo glad I found you! I can tell already I am going to find LOTS of style inspiration from you! I love how all of your pieces are classic pieces but come together for a perfectly styled, chic look. Sometimes the most simple pieces make the biggest impact and I usually tend to forget that. Thanks for the reminder! haha Happy to announce you have a brand new follower! I look forward to all of your future inspiration! ;)


  4. It seems all the bloggers are wearing beanies these days, I need to get one. These photos are beautiful, you have a wonderful photographer. The red puffer is perfect for the upcoming holidays!

  5. Now you really made me want to get a red vest too! I already own a white and black one and have been debating on whether to purchase a red vest also. Such a cute outfit! Gorgeous photos!

  6. Perfect outfit for this time of the year. I have been wanting a red vest and bought a checked one from J Crew Factory recently. Not as great deal as yours. Looking fab as always!


  7. Loving that vest! That's all I really need here in California. Super cute! Thanks so much for linking up to the Be. YOU. tiful link party. Following you now on instagram!


Don't be shy! I love reading all of your comments!
