I love me a good vest…

It truly is the perfect piece to transition through the seasons and, if you get it in the right material, you can literally wear it all year long.

This utility vest is exactly that… a year-long piece…


Our Summer’s are HOT in Savannah. Hot really isn’t even a good word. A better word would be scorching. Add in the humidity and you will understand why our weather is considered the armpit of the South. It is because of this that cool, breathable pieces are a must!



My utility vest is an American Eagle find that I scored at the end of the season last Fall for $20. It is lightweight and adjustable so it has easily adjusted through the seasons. I love how long it is because it adds something extra to my dresses and tunics without giving the illusion of cutting me off in the middle. The best part about this vest… it has pockets! I paired it with a dress from Forever 21 that I got earlier in the Summer. It is a little on the shorter side for my usual taste, but it has been so hot this Summer that I really did not mind. The dress was only $12 and is actually really well made for being so cheap. It is fully lined and it has a gold, back zipper detail.



My bag is a Rebecca Minkoff Mini Mac and it is in a beautiful mint color. This picture does not even begin to do it justice. It is such a versatile bag that has easily transitioned with me through all the Seasons. It is actually very roomy very being considered a “mini bag” and I am able to fit everything inside with ease.



My sandals were a birthday gift from my sweet friend Julia of Glitter and Juls. I love the pop of color that they brought to my outfit and I am a sucker for a good boho vibe. I was inspired by the pink in the sandals so I added one of my fave Kendra Scott necklaces to really give my outfit that pop! My sunnies are a few year old but they are Tory Burch.


I am already planning all of the ways that I can wear the vest this Fall! It really is an investment piece and I encourage you all to go out and get you one! Maybe you will get lucky and find one on super sale like I did! If you want some outfit inspo then head over to my Pinterest and give me a follow at Being Mrs. Fowler. I am always pinning outfit ideas for using this vest! Hope you all are having a FAB week!
