Clothed with Grace: A Utility Vest and Stripes

A Utility Vest and Stripes

Recently the sweet Amy at Mariposa Medley sent me this great Kendra Scott Inspired necklace.  I'm only slightly obsessed.  I now have pink, teal, and black.  I tell you what, they go with everything!  I love it her with my utility vest and striped dress.  I have it with wedges here, but I think it'll be great with booties in a month or so.  

 Mariposa Medley also has the matching earrings  for this necklace.  Awesome.  You should definitely snag one or all of these pieces up before they're gone!  Need an incentive? Use code grandopening25 for 25% off your whole order!

Have you entered my giveaway for $50 to chloe + isabel here yet?



Vest: JCP (last year) similar
Dress: Merona (last year) similar

 Grant wanted to be in the pictures too.  He's got just a little bit of a personality here...


 And one more for good measure....


Want some inspiration on how to wear a utility jacket this fall?  Here are some ways I styled it last year.  Man, I love this thing!

  1. Oh my gosh, Grant is cracking me up; he's such a little ham! Love this look, the utility vest looks great with the striped dress. And I think you are completely right about looking good with ankle boots later!

  9. Great outfits with the vest. Love the look and how it can transition from summer to fall. The olive color and the stripes look great as well. And looks like Batman is hamming it up! :-)
