Vests are my absolute favorite this fall. In the span of a few weeks, I bought 3 different ones without even realizing it! Vests are actually perfect for Southern California fall weather, because they aren’t super bulky like a big sweater or jacket, and are super easy to layer with. They are just the ticket for cool, cloudy days, when worn with a lighter layer like I did here with a chambray shirt. Of course this adorable gingham vest caught my eye while online shopping one day (summer gingham favorites included this off the shoulder dress and this romper), and with an ideal price point of under $30, it was hard to say no! I’ve already worn it multiple times this fall, and I’m in love. It’s perfect for pairing with a casual outfit like this, but I’ve even worn it with a long sleeve t-shirt and running pants for an “athleisure” inspired look. Though I have to say, I think this combo is one of my favorites!
