New Olive Vest

Posted on: June 28, 2013

i’ve been wanting an olive vests for months now and thanks to Audrey’s post,  I researched and found one that had enough feminity to make it into my closet.  This one is by Vera Wang for Kohls


I chose to pair it today with purple as that is one of my favorite colors with olive.

IMG_0726 I took these pictures at 6:30 since my mail comes late and i couldn’t wait to style it and the lighting is not what i am use to… I know now not to stand here…. There was a nice breeze today!  


The vest ties at the waist, but for today I chose to wear it open and pull the ties to the back. IMG_0713

I’ve been waiting a long time and my head is full of ways to style this so instead of my Lucky Find’s for the next few Friday’s i will post looks with my newly coveted item...

Dear Readers, I am really loving vests for summer and so glad I prepared early and thrifted a few.  When it comes to certain pieces that are very on trend and current that I see as a very versatile piece it is well worth buying retail… I hope to show how versatile this piece is in the coming weeks and hope you’ll join me in that journey.  Even if an olive vest is not soemthing you have or want, maybe you can see some ways to mix colors or perhaps you have an olive jacket that could be subsituted. 


I am grateful for the wild rabbits that grace me with their presence outside my kitchen window or in the front yard.  I’ve lived her for 11 years now and my delight each time has never wained.. 

I am grateful for a fun evening with my two youngest eating at Chik Fil A and then seeing Monster’s Umiversity followed by a late night run to Walmart.

I am grateful that I will soon have the funds for the much needed cooling/heating system tomorrow!  Thanks to my husband’s hard work.

I love this outfit! I would never think to put the olive green with purple. I wish I could coordinate my clothes like that. I see so many pieces that I like, but have no idea how to make it work with what I have.

I so wish I could go play in the closets of others and help them to put toghether what they have… maybe one day.. In the meantime, find inspiration and give it a shot.

I am so glad you were able to find your olive vest! It’s a great pick and I love it paired with purple. You will love it and get tons of wear out of it. Enjoy your weekend! Heather

Thanks Heather, and for reminding me ot that post, I had left a commnet on it when she posted it… When you said you had yours for two years, I perused your site looking and you have used it as quite a versatile piece… well you and Kayla…

An olive vest is something I’ve been wanting as well! How cool that you can tie it in the back like that. Versatile Style really IS your thing, isn’t it? 😉

Thanks for commenting and I hope to live up my to blog name… Since I’ve spent so much time rebuilding my wardrobe after the weight loss I haven’t shown as much versatility as I had hoped.. but there’s time for that,.. going with what is..right now…

I really like it with the purple top! Great outfit!

The olive vest goes great with the top, you look fab 🙂

I love your outfit today and look forward to your Friday posts styling this vest. I have wanted one for a long time and have been looking at the same vest. They didn’t have it in the Kohl’s near me so I went to some other stores and found a cute one on clearance at JCPenney for $14.00! I’ve already worn it twice already and I’ve only had it a week. 🙂 It is a fun, versatile piece.

Yes, these vests are indeed versatile and I love it is as a great completer piece for the warmer months.. Thanks for your comments and hopefully in the coming weeks you may find some inspiration.
