I was making my weekly Walmart run for paper and toiletries and happened to notice all the pretty new sweaters they have. As I was practicing restraint with the folded cardigans, (in every color for
only $8.94) I happened to glance over and see this pretty white infinity scarf hanging there for less than $5.00. It's faded glory brand and I love their stuff.
It is really soft and the creamy white color makes it super versatile. Needless to say the restraint I showed with the sweaters went flying out the window when it came to the scarf. It comes in a pale pink that would be perfect for Spring and I'm kind of kicking myself for not getting it, too. If it's there when I stop in this week I can't promise I'll show the same restraint in bringing it home.
I love how the white sets off this pretty navajo inspired blouse that I bought at Burlington Coat Factory, which is another unlikely place to for me to Shop. I had a store credit from an online return and actually ended up with a few really cute things that I'll be sharing once the weather warms up a bit.
I really like this next outfit and I've worn it a couple of times already this winter.
I love the look of layers but don't like the bulkiness and extra padding (and warmth) that comes with them so that's why I love vests; they can give the same look without all those extras. This black and red checked one from Old Navy is one of my favorites. I paired it with a navy long sleeve t-shirt, silver jewelry and my black suede boots.
I love outfits like this that look put together but are still really comfortable. A cute vest can do that. I was able to pick up a couple at Old Navy before Christmas on sale for less than $20.00. They have definitely been worth the investment.
Are you a fan of vests? What's your favorite way to wear them? I'd love to hear.
