Say Yes to the Vest

Happy Wednesday, loves!  I’ve been so motivated lately because I have a lot of new exciting things coming for you in the next month.  Think:  new look, new posts, and a blogging makeover.  I am so excited to share them with you, so stay tuned!

Today’s style features a couple super-hot fall trends:  suede and fringe.  I bought this suede/faux fur vest last year from Apricot Lane Green Bay and am so excited to be able to re-wear this trend this fall season.  I love these amazing finds at locally owned boutiques.  I always preach the importance of shopping local.  Not only do you always find unique, one of a kind finds, but you’re also supporting the hard work of those brave enough to start a small business and follow their dreams.




I decided to pair this vest with an olive Piko dress from Apricot Lane Peoria and booties from Apricot Lane Madison (can you tell I love Apricot Lane?…hint! I used to work at one!).  Piko dresses are super comfortable and I SWEAR by them.  You can dress them up or down, and I love the length of them and how you can pull them off as both a dress or a tunic with leggings.   The vest serves to dress this outfit down and gives it a comfy, casual day look.


I decided to add my favorite boho-inspired necklace that I purchased from a small boutique in Denver, Colorado.  My boyfriend Josh and I took a road trip there a couple years ago, and it was one of the best trips of my life thus far.  I purchased this piece as a reminder of the memories made on that trip so it really means a lot to me…not to mention it gives a super unique and “cool” vibe to any outfit!

Hope you loved this look as much as I do!  Try one of these vests below to rock the suede/fringe trend no matter what your personal style is!!
