My name is Lauren, and I love this vest.

March 19, 2012

It has been GORGEOUS here, you guys!  I am loving life and this weather is just the icing on the cake.  It feels like Summer (in March! Unbelievable!).  I took advantage of the weather this past weekend and spent a lot of time outside.  On Sunday, I had some errands to run (Target, Whole Foods, the usual) and wanted to be cool and comfortable.  I showed you how I styled this vest in the winter here, and here it is again for it’s Spring debut.  I love this vest and I don’t care who knows it!  Do you have a piece of clothing you ALWAYS reach for?  What is it?

| Vest: Old Navy | Tee: Target | Jeans: Rag + Bone (via TJ Maxx) | Sandals: Target |

| Necklace: May Badiyan | Sunglasses: Cole Haan | Bracelets: J. Crew, Forever, David Yurman| Purse: Target|

    I have that same vest & couldn’t agree with you more – it goes with everything!! Love how you styled it here…so simple yet chic :)

    • Lauren {Stylized Existence}

      Thanks! It really does go with everything!

    You’re totally right about having that one item in your closet you constantly go to like child feeling comfort in hugging their favorite blanket! If I ever have to get ready in 5 minutes or can’t decide what to wear, I immediately go to my black and white striped long sleeve shirt and top it with a blazer. Always makes me feel pulled together!

    • Lauren {Stylized Existence}

      Oooh — good thinking. I need to get a black and white striped shirt….. (thinking….)

    My name is Carly, and I also love this vest. If I had it in my closet, I would reach for it very often as well. Looks great with a plain tee. And you know I love that necklace :)

    • Lauren {Stylized Existence}

      Oh giiiiirl, we both love this necklace.

    Lately I’ve been reaching for my army green jacket. It’s similar to your vest but with sleeves and silver studs on the elbows. I feel like it goes with everything!
