My Favorite Fall Basic

To be honest, I typically don’t wear a lot of basics. I love boho silhouettes, intricate prints, embroidered pieces and stand out details. That’s often what I look for when I’m shopping. However, when I stumble upon a great basic and add it to my wardrobe, I find that that is what I end up gravitating towards wearing the most! Today I’m chatting all about why a structured camel vest is a fabulous addition to any fall wardrobe.


Shop the Look:

This menswear-inspired double-breasted vest from J.McLaughlin instantly elevates ANY outfit. I’ve thrown it on over a striped tee and jeans and even with a pair of sneakers, it has taken my look from drab to fab. Layered over dresses or lightweight sweaters (like this wool bell sleeve number), this vest is so versatile I could just go on all day!¬†For those of you that live in a warmer climate, vests are great pieces to invest in because you will often get much more mileage out of them than any coat in your closet. I usually don’t pull out my heavy coats unless I’m traveling, so vests it is for me!

I love this chic fall look for any occasion. With the sequined earrings, it’s dressy enough for an afternoon happy hour with the girls or a casual dinner date. It also works for running those holiday errands that I am so excited to start doing! Who else is ALREADY thinking about their Christmas gift list? Surprisingly¬†I’ve already knocked a few people’s gifts off my list. But those are the easier ones to shop for. My husband is definitely the hardest so I’m still brainstorming for him.

In the meantime, I’ll be sharing a roundup of holiday gift guides for EVERYONE on your gift list coming soon. Make sure to be on the lookout for those! And as always, thanks for stopping by the blog!
