This vest has proven to be a real wardrobe multi-tasker. I first showed it off in this post, and have proceeded to wear it with all kinds of other things I already had in my closet. It was the ideal addition for spring, when layering is essential but it’s not really full-on jacket weather anymore (at least not here in San Diego). I already know this piece is going to double my outfit options, because it changes the look so much without any effort. (Seriously, imagine no vest in these photos—totally different look!). The fact that it buttons and cinches at the waist adds to the possibilities.
Aside from the massive versatility of this piece, I appreciate that it also provides me with extra pockets. Fellow mamas know that you always need more pockets. For your phone. Your sunglasses. Your kid’s snack. A miscellaneous baby wipe. Pockets = life. And this vest nails it.
