As you know, one of the best things about blogging is all the amazing women I have met and have become friends with. It's just great to be around women who share the same interests and support each other in what we do. Now as much as I wish they all lived in NYC so we can see each other more often, they don't. But I do spend a good amount of time with the ones that do, like my girls Darlene of Suit, Heels and Curves and Jamilyn of Style over Size. Our styles are very similar, so much so that we ended up ordering some of the same pieces from the Adam Lippes for Target collection. One of the pieces being this Plaid Belted Sweater Vest. We decided since we all had the vest, why not do a collab together to show our own unique styles.
I previously posted about this collection (see here) and how impressed I was with it. The whole plaid design is all the rave now for the Fall and this vest is right on trend. It's a nice chunky knit, so it will definitely keep you warm on those cold days. It's a great layering piece and I love the faux shearling front pockets that add great contrast to the vest. This collection is very generous is size so I would advise sizing down. I am currently wearing a 2X.
I've been keeping my outfits super casual these days, especially on the weekends and this one is no different. Paring the vest with a simple denim shirt, jeggings, black riding boots and tote made me totally ready for brunch with my girls and shopping afterwards (of course lol). Keeping it casual never looked so good.
