Blustery Days and Sweater Vests



Sometimes you are really want to get to work and take your outfit photos and the day just isn't cooperating.  Here in Saskatchewan we often have high winds so I decided to just venture outdoors regardless of the weather and make the best of it.  We were going downtown to do a little bit of shopping so it seemed like the perfect opportunity to wear my new sweater vest and button down.  The sweater vest trend is going strong and I knew I was going to jump on it when both of my girls bought theirs in the spring.  I was like, heck yes, I missed jumping on this train when they were around back in the 90s and I am not missing out again.  So I looked to add the perfect one for the fall and found this one at the Bay and jumped on it, its sold out currently but I'll link a few similar option below.  The next item I really wanted to add to my work wardrobe this year was a button down shirt.  I haven't actually had one for years but I desperately wanted a longer one, that was loose fitting but also lightweight so that I could opt to tuck it in or leave it out.  Another things I really wanted was for the sleeves to be easy to roll up, and that it was relatively lightweight without being see through.  Check, check, check, I found everything in this one and I know it'll get a ton of wear!  I love how this outfit came together, especially with the leather pants, red lips and little booties.  Can I just say that I really miss being able to wear lipstick so that people can actually see it. Sigh.  I know it's a small thing but I miss knowing people will actually see my make-up, just saying.

    1. It was so nice to wear it in this transition time when it's cooler but not cold enough for a winter coat!

  4. Love your take on this look. Your vest is a bit different from the traditional houndstooth and I LOVE it. Need to try mine with my leather pants. Wonder if I can get them on??

  5. Loving the sweater vest trend and your houndstooth vest is so cute! The leather leggings give this look the right amount of edge. You look so chic!

    1. Thanks Jill. I am loving this look at the moment but I am thinking of pairing the sweater vest over a button down shirt dress. I'll have to see how it turns out.

  6. The pattern is awesome, something I will definitely be looking out for this winter. And of course a warm snuggly scarf to keep my neck warm. Great photos.

  7. Simply beautiful! Sweater vests are definitely trending and it's hard to resist. This one you bought is not only pretty but a classic. The color and the print will surely stand the test of time. I want to try the white boot trend but I am still iffy. I am thinking it's because I haven't found the right one yet. Weather wise, it's been cooler in my neck of the woods. We do get winds too but so far it's been pleasant and a nice change of pace from the heat. I hope you are having a great start to your week so far and happy Tuesday!

    1. I wanted white boots soooooo bad last year but never did end up picking them up or finding the right ones. But I just bought a pair that I love and I don't think I'll regret them. I'll keep my out to see what you decided.

    1. Thanks. I know what you mean. There are many that I think are cute for younger girls but not for my style or work environment but I immediately fell in love with this one.
