Wearing Vests Instead Of Jackets For Spring And Summer

Wearing Vests Instead Of Jackets For Spring And Summer

I think vests can be a great replacement for jackets for the warmer months in spring and summer. I personally have always liked wearing them. What about you? Do you like wearing vests?

Today I have put together a new look using one of our vests as my third piece instead of a jacket. I started off with our best-selling Sage Pebble Stripe Button Front Shirt, which we have restocked a few times. I first styled this shirt for you here.

This is a really nice rayon shirt in a beautiful sage color with a fun pebble print vertical stripe. The body is semi loose, and it has long sleeves with cuffs. However, it also has a tab and button detail that allows you to fold up the sleeves as I have done for today’s look.

I have tucked in the shirt, so make sure to check out the shop photos for the length. This shirt also comes in an ivory/black combo and you can see that piece here.

Instead of choosing a jacket or cardigan, I decided to style this shirt with our Ivory Cascading Collar Cargo Vest. This vest has cargo style pockets, a cascading collar and an inside cord and drawstring belt. It looks great left open or you can tie the waist to give it more shape. We only have a few pieces left in this vest.

As for accessories, I have two brand new pieces today, both of which are super cute. The first one is our Gold Tone Intricate Diamond Shape Earrings, which is a very pretty piece that can work with many outfits.

The second item is our new Gold, Sea foam & Cream Three Piece Bracelet Set. When you order this bracelet, you will receive three different bracelets that can be worn together like I have done today, or they can be added to any of your existing bracelets as a stacked look. One of the bracelets has a sea foam color bead which picks up on the sage color of the shirt.

For today’s look, I chose to wear my wider leg jeans. I tend to always wear skinny jeans as I think that style looks the best on me. However sometimes I like wearing different shapes of jeans, so today I chose a wider leg look.

All four pieces I am showing you today are part of our Weekend Flash Sale where you can get 15% off with code FS516 plus Free US Shipping.

Shipments to Canada are a flat rate of $25.00 and all other countries are a flat rate of $35.00.

  1. I like the laid vibe that your vest gives off. It definitely gives me the summer feeling! I definitely love the longer length and yes, please to pockets. That’s a criteria now for me when buying clothes!

  3. I love to wear layers and vests are such a great option for warmer weather. I have a decent collection of lightweight vests for this time of year. I am loving this look. That mint green top is so pretty on you, the wide legged denim is amazing, and this vest is the perfect completer piece. Thanks for linking up with me, Nora! I hope you are well!
