I was in the city by myself on Monday and I popped by the mall in between appointments to look around. Much to my surprise they had added a new lingerie store and a few other stores. I was quick to snap up two new (non-nursing!) bras. Clothes fit better with the correct underpinnings! I got sized by one of the store clerks and I was happy to find out that my bra size was relatively the same. After a pregnancy and nursing for a year, I wasn't sure that would be the case.
Anyway! After I had bought the new bras, I waltzed by Ricki's and what did I see? The military inspired utility vest that I have been seeking for about 6 months. Honestly! You wouldn't think that they would be hard to find, but apparently they are! Perhaps it was just the wrong season?
I had decided that I would purchase the vest whenever I found it and if it made sense, add it to the capsule that I was currently in. That is exactly what happened. I made the purchase and it is nestled in my closet with my other Summer Capsule Wardrobe pieces.
I decided that I wanted this versatile piece when I saw all the ways it could add style to my wardrobe. I think that it is a piece that can be worn in any season and I like to use military olive as a neutral. I can't think of a colour that it clashes with! My inspiration for styling this piece came from Audrey's blog, Putting Me Together. She calls this vest a completer piece and she uses hers quite often. I highly recommend this blog to anyone who is looking to build on their style or completely rework their closet! I have found some great resources on her blog. Audrey doesn't normally do capsule wardrobes, but her tips and tricks can really help you build a good capsule wardrobe, because she strives for items that work in many ways!
Here is the vest! Happy Wednesday!
