Repeat Offender

I just can't stop wearing this sweater vest! When I saw this beauty selling months ago, I knew it had to be in my closet. Sure, I told myself it was worth the price and I'd wear it tons, but like most faux fur pieces, I honestly figured I'd wear it (or be photographed in it) about four times this fall/winter season. That is so not the case! It really is my go-to piece in all things layering.

On this day, I had a baby shower to attend. Our unseasonably warm weather allowed me to go bare legs on this beautiful Fall day. By layering my sweater vest over a maroon fit-and-flare dress, the dress took on an entire new look.

To finish my outfit off, I went the matchy matchy route. By adding maroon colored wedges, all gold jewelry, and a brown bag, my outfit ended up dressy enough for the shower and warm enough to not wear a coat. Win win, no? Perfect...now I have time to kick and toss leaves around the backyard! Blogger gonna blog. ;)

Have you ever purchased an item and gotten way more use out of it then expected?
