Vested Up


Despite the fact that it is getting cold very fast (in fact, I awoke to snow on the ground this morning!), I might still be in denial that a winter coat is needed for my daily commute to school. Personally, I dislike the bulk of a huge coat even though it keeps me warm. A great way I solve my problem here is by wearing a vest!


Vests are perfect for those days where it is slightly chilly outside, but not cold enough for a real heavy duty jacket. Vests offer you protection from the cold and wind while keeping you looking chic and put together.
They are such a versatile and vauluable piece to anyone's closet!


For my outfit here, I chose to layer my blue best on top of a plain long sleeved black t-shirt. I paired this with a pair of jeans and some gray boots. As far as accessories, I wore a set of 3 bangles that I made in my jewelry class. (super proud of them!)
As I mentioned before, I woke up to snow this morning which I was not expecting. The weather forecast predicted snow, but not for our city. We were expected to get a few flurries at most. Like always most of the time, they were wrong and we got more like 2-3 inches of snow. This led to a 90 min. delay for me for school! You don't know how excited I was to learn that I could sleep for another hour and a half! Boy, do I need more sleep in my life!

  1. Cute look :) In Finland a bulky coat is obligatory in winter, but the vest suits you fine. I see you also colored your hair.. cute :)
