White, Stripes, and Cargo Vest

Just when I think the days of cargo vests are long gone, I want to pull mine out to complete an outfit because it just works.  At this point it's a closet staple of mine, and in order to keep it feeling updated I just pair it with pieces that are more current or fit with the season.  Like today, all white!  I would point you to my "cargo vest" label to show you past posts with the ways I've worn this thing, but it turns out I've only labeled 3 other outfits with this (out of many, many more) from the archives.  Looks like I've got a ton of work to do in the labeling department.  Gah!

(One confession about this outfit, I wore other shoes.  I took these pics before I wore out and ended up going with other shoes instead.  I decided to wait to try this pair first before I dirty up the ones in these pics.)

  1. Love, love, love. Isn't it handy how well jackets/vests work for pregnancy? Definitely something that helped keep my maternity style feeling "me" by being able to pair them with maternity staple basics. I think I need to copy this, since I also have (and love ) that bag... though I haven't (somehow, shockingly) yet managed to justify the purchase of a cargo vest given that I have a green cargo jacket already. BUT... soon it will be too hot to wear it, and it's such a staple of my wardrobe, that I think I need a version with no sleeves now, right? :)

  2. p.s. I think this shoe option is great!

  3. The vest is the perfect finishing touch for this cute outfit :)

    Great outfit! I think you can never go wrong with a cargo vest and can be worn year round.


  5. So cute! I'm a huge fan of the cargo vest! I have one hanging up in my closest, and you've totally inspired me to bring it into rotation again.

  6. You've inspired me to dig out my cargo vest again. I need to savor the last few weeks of spring when it's still tolerable to layer!
    Also, love that bag!

    I'm doing well. Just lots of end-of-the-year grading. :)

  8. I'm sorry, you're not selling me on the vest. You've got me to embrace stripes, but the vest is just a bridge to far
