I can’t put my finger on what it is exactly- but it adds a little something extra to an outfit.
Today’s look is a checked blouse and skinny jeans. On the right is my original look- I even went so far as to match my orange shoes to my top! Sadly, this doesn’t actually look very good- a little too ‘matchy, matchy’.
On the left I have switched out the sandals for my rugged booties (much more weather appropriate) and then added the utility vest to give the look that little oomph!
The blouse is ultra preppy- so this vest really takes it down a notch- which makes it more my style!
