Total Basset Case: Vested.

Aug 22, 2012


This vest may be the new bubble necklace.
I have seen it all over blogland and decided that I neeeeded it.

This obsession started a while time ago, thanks to Lauren.
She has rocked this vest in so many ways.
She always looks stellar in it every.single.time.
(great example here and here she tells you are crazy for not buying it-hint, she's right)

THEN Liz had it on at the blogger meet up.
Sold, again.
And she had it on her blog here, looking adorbs as well!

And the final nail in the coffin was seeing Courtney in it.
I mean, seriously, could she look cuter?
And p.s. can I puhlease have her hair.
Guhhh, it's so gorge.

There are lots of other great examples all over blogland. 
(here, here, and here)

So after searching high and low today 
(and by that I mean calling every Old Navy in Cincinnati)
I found it!
Word to wise that Liz gave me: it runs a little big so I would size down.
I purchased a small. 
I have a green cargo jacket from quite a few years ago from Target.
I wear that jacket constantly in the fall so I think this vest is just a natural progression.

I am beyond excited to incorporate this vest into my wardrobe
(and maybe even with my bubble necklace).
Here are a few outfit ideas I've already put together
 And the options are endless!
Light weight sweaters, cardis, layered shirts, scarfs, scarfs and more scarfs.

What have you seen lately in blogland that you just had to have??

Three cheers for the vest!

I'm really glad you were able to finally track down the vest and even more so that I'm able to get some inspiration from another fashionable gal!

According to Jax said...

Okay. Now I NEED THIS VEST!!! Which location did you get it from? And I like your last pic the best, but I'm very partial to outfits that include scarves!! :)

So cute! May just have to run to ON during lunch.

Jessica M. said...

Very cute! I especially like it with the white underneath.

Erin said...

SUPER cute, I've been seeing it everywhere too and starting to think maybe I need one ;) Who am I kidding, I need an entire new fall wardrobe lol! I like the top right best, but the one with the scarf will be cute too!!

That vest is completely perfect. I'll have to get one for when the weather cools down.

Annie said...

I just bought that ON vest too - it's SO versatile! Love all the looks you put together :)

Jealous! It totally is the new bubble necklace - I've been coveting it for a while on other people (it is so darn cute! And versatile!) but no more in my size. Boo.

I have a scarf obsession. Seriously, I use them to decorate my walls, that's how many there are.

Hannah said...

Ahhh I just bought the jacket version of this and I can't wait to wear it.

Carly Haslee said...

AH! You found it! So happy for you and loving the way you styled it. Such great options! xo

Because Shanna Said So said...

Okay, just being know I love you, but I just don't get this vest. I am seeing it everywhere too and I even tried it on and it looks horrible on me. Maybe I just don't know what the heck I am doing. ;) I can't wait to see you in it...maybe I will get inspired more! Don't be mad! xoxo

Andrea D said...

I wants it! And how perfect for my first fall in California, since I'm guessing heavy sleeves won't be in my wardrobe.
Count me in on the blogger vest obsession :)

Thanks for the shoutout homegirl!

Katie of At Home When Im With You said...

LOVE this! I was just watching Pretty Little Liars of Netflix (I am way to old for that show, but love it anyway!) and one of the girls had it on. It looked soooo cute. Going to run to Old Navy this weekend! Thanks for the heads up:)

Unknown said...

Yep, it's awesome! Adding it to the wishlist...

Happy seeing beautiful!
