So over this past week, I’ve made two or three trips back and forth to Christiansburg in search of some new fall clothing items. Usually when I shop around I end up with some sort of trend (all black and white clothing, contemporary items, only dresses, etc.), and this time it just so happened to be vests (I got some other items too, I just happened to get a good amount of vests). A vest is a great clothing item you can throw onto any outfit to make you look put together. They’re also perfect to wear during this bi-polar Blacksburg weather.

The first vest I purchased was online at J.crew (Jcrew.com) – $120

I LOVE vests from J.crew; They are on the pricier side, but investing in at least one is totally worth it. These vests are comfortable and light-weight yet still keep you warm. The pockets convenience allows you to stick your keys or phone in them without anything falling out because of the snap closure buttons AND there are additional pockets underneath so your hands can stay warm as well.

The second vest I purchased was in store at Target (also available at Target.com) – $34.99

I’ve always been looking for a faux suede vest that looks JUST like this one so I was super excited that they had this at target. I prefer a vest with pockets, but this one was so cute that I didn’t even mind. I like to pair this vest with just a white long sleeve shirt or sweater with jeans and tall riding boots. I’ll probably wear this vest for Thanksgiving dinner with a cute swing dress underneath to doll up my look.

The third vest I purchased was in store at Old Navy (also available at Oldnavy.com) – $19.94 ON SALE for $7.98

This picture doesn’t do much justice for what this vest actually looks like in person but it is a “space-dye performance vest.” Old Navy is having a sale at the moment so this $20 vest was 60% off! (WARNING: if you go online everything is a little bit more expensive – the discounts are larger in store) This vest is very versatile as you can make it look cute and casual or wear it with your running gear and go for a sporty look! I’m so glad I got this fleece vest for so cheap…and yes, it has pockets.

Vests are a necessary staple in your fall wardrobe and these three vests are definitely a good variety to choose from!

Until my next mini shopping trip – ciao!
