Today I’m sharing my favorite outfit, which is also perfect for transitioning into winter. Honestly, I didn’t start wearing vests until last year. I think it was because I felt they looked funny on me. Then, I learned how to pair them with cute shirts and sweaters, and voila!
Right after giving birth last year (holy cow, that was almost one year ago) hubs bought me this vest from JCPenney. I bugged him about it literally for forever and of course he caved. I hardly ever wore it though, because I didn’t leave the house with baby until the weather warmed up. But I loved it! And the times I did wear it I felt so good, which is hard to feel right after giving birth! I think that’s why I’m so obsessed with it this year- it brings back so many memories.
So this year I’m dragging it out early before it’s too late. I really love that it adds warmth without adding a ton of bulk. I’ve always hated wearing bulky winter clothes. I distinctly remember arguing with my mom DAILY about wearing a winter coat to school. I would have rather been frozen to death than wear a bulky coat. (Sorry about those days, mom!)
All that to say, I’m excited to get to wear it this year while it’s still cold out. That is, if fall ever decides to come back to Texas!
