Cargo Vests: A Great Summer-Into-Fall Layering Piece


Still no baby, but I've got an ever-growing bump and an outfit that's been on repeat for 4 days.  Call it even?

I don't know why this vest has been on hiatus for as long as it has, but now that it's back on my radar I want to wear it over ALL THE THINGS.  One thing about summer dressing that I miss is the ability to make outfits more interesting with layers, but if you're in a climate that can handle some sort of layer (sorry, Florida peeps) then a cargo vest is a great option.  And you can totally wear it in the fall over long sleeved tops and sweaters.

I've had mine for 3 years and am amazed that I continue to wear it year after year.  If you want ideas for how to wear this thing, see all my outfits by clicking here.

  2. I'm at due date +5... I feel you! Hang in there. Well, actually, no, don't hang in there too much ;)
    I need a vest like that too. I always think of you when I see one in a store. It's officially on my post-baby shopping list.

  6. Love the outfit! I'm soooo envious that your ankles are teeny-tiny... mine swelled up so badly and looked awful! I couldn't wear anything but flip-flops!!! You're definitely rocking the pregnancy glow!!!

  7. I have to admit that you are the reason I decided to buy a cargo vest; you make them look so fun and stylish! I love how you've paired it with a simple dress. It's the perfect completer piece, for sure. You're looking great! Good luck on the delivery. I'm sure you're very ready for baby to be here!

  9. I've learned so much from the help pages on your blog. Thank you! I thought I'd come out of the corner to say hi. My baby was due Friday, so about the same time as yours. I'm still waiting, too =). Good luck with the birth and moving!

  14. You'r so adorable, you almost make me want to be pregnant again so I can try some of the outfit tricks you've shown me. Why on earth were maxi dresses not on my radar when I had a belly?!

    ReplyDelete
  15. Yikes! I'm at +2. I hope you get to meet your baby this week!


    Don't wait too long on the vests, especially if you see them in store. They're hard to get a hold of!

  16. I don't blame her either! She gets to eat her weight in ice cream everyday. Baha.

  17. Thank you so much for saying hi, Elizabeth! I'm so so glad the blog has been helpful to you--that's my favorite thing to hear!


    I hope you meet your baby very very soon. Good luck!

  18. YES! I thought it would go out of style soon after I bought it, but 3 years later I'm still wearing it!

    ReplyDelete
  19. Ok good. I will! And same for you :)

    ReplyDelete
  20. I can't believe it either! I'll text you a pic...and in the meantime text me a pic of you and your dude!! Ahem!

    ReplyDelete
  21. Okay, time to get one of these vests. And also, you look incredible!!! Eager beaver over here waiting to hear the exciting news :)

  22. I have one of these vests, and I hardly ever wear it. Considering it will be plenty warm in these parts for another month or so, I might have to add it into rotation until I can wear my cargo jacket. I love this color combination!

    ReplyDelete
  23. So cute, lady! And I feel the same way about my cargo jacket. Over ALL the things. (So handy this is a doable thing even while super pregnant - very easy way to make maternity style feel "you".) I love my jacket so much I think I could justify purchasing a vest, but I've never been able to find one that fits me right... So excited to finally hear some baby news!! Bet you are too :)

  24. You are seriously the cutest preggo lady!! I rediscovered my cargo vest recently and I want to wear it with all the things, too! :)

    I'm glad you posted that Old Navy puffer! I've been looking for a vest that had a similar look to the J. Crew factory one without the J. Crew price tag. It's almost identical!

  27. That is so awesome! Congratulations!!

    ReplyDelete
  28. Well you too are definitely crazy, but congrats! That is awesome!! I'm sure this house will be great for your growing family. I just can't wait to "meet" the little one!

    Also- your pictures outside look beautiful. You're glowing!

    ♥ perfectly Priya

  30. C'mon baby!! It's ok. You're over due, we forgive you for wanting to be comfortable. Honestly, I don't know why you're not in track shorts and an oversized tee.

    ReplyDelete
  31. Hooray! Congratulations on the new house, Audrey and Benson! I definitely think you are a little crazy for moving right now, but I'm so excited for you nonetheless ;) I can't wait to see pictures of the new home!!


    (Also, I've been checking on your social media accounts like a madwoman to see if your babe has arrived yet...ahhh!!!)

  32. I have been lusting over your belt! Where is it from! Hoping to catch you before you pop :)

    ReplyDelete
  33. thanks! wishing you the best of luck when that little baby arrives! i'm due in December and have been following you to gain almost all of my maternity inspiration :) I've referenced you several times in my own little blog!

    ReplyDelete
  34. YES! I wear my cargo vest all year round, and it gets a ton of wear in the summer for the reasons you talked about. I feel like it always adds that extra something that turns the outfit from something boring and plain to something that's a little more interesting and polished! :)

  35. See, i tried my cargo vest with a maxi and hated the look, but this looks so great on you!!
