Why did I wait this long to buy this vest?! That’s what I would really like to know, because now that I have it I am obsessed. I teamed up with Nordstrom to bring you all this post and I really wanted to share a look that was super practical for me. A look that is exactly what I reach for on the weekends time and time again. Annnd that’s why I came across this vest! Leggings and a vest are my favorite go-to items for Saturday and Sunday when running errands and grabbing morning coffee so I was on the hunt for a new vest that was not only a neutral but also soft and cuddly. This one is just that. FYI–size up! [I went up two sizes actually] I think Patagonia always runs a bit small so I ordered a small and medium in this and ended up keeping the medium because I really wanted it to be a bit over-sized rather than fitted.
My top is actually a light-weight sweater and it’s a GREAT basic to have in your closet. I love the laid back fit and I know I’ll be happy to have it to pair with jeans and a scarf too. Plus the price is hard to beat! I’ve found that pairing something like this with leggings and tennis shoes can make me feel a lot more put together than an old t-shirt.
These leggings are another great high-rise find! The beauty of them is how basic they are. ps, these are actually longer in length on me. I have them turned up in these photos to be right above my ankle (I do that often with leggings) but I’ll wear them both ways depending on the chill factor. I got an xs.
So for all of you ladies that have a dressier outfit on (and full make up rather than sunglasses, ha) when you grocery shop and run to Starbucks–I give you props. For me, it will probably always be a casual look like this. If you’re anything like me then give these basics a try. They don’t disappoint!
