On Trend: The Sweater Vest

After seeing lots of girls that I admire and follow on the ‘gram this fall rocking the sweater vest, I decided I had to try it out for myself.  I specifically love the look of the sweater dress with an oversized shirt dress. SO, here we are. I found this one on Amazon, but I have my eye on a few below from ASOS, obvi.

The holidays were a crazy time and I struggled to find time to take photos of outfits, but one morning I was over at my parents house and the light was flowing into the kitchen and I got inspired to take these photos! Didn’t ever quite get to put the phone down, as I was messing with posing and lighting, but something about these photos reminded me why I started this blog in the first place.  I want to be able to work when I feel inspired, and not feel the pressure to just crank out content for content’s sake!

Anyways, nothing too profound to say here, except if you want to jump on the sweater vest trend, I’ve rounded up some good, affordable options below. (Fun fact, when searching for sweater vests online, I found that on most sites they are “knit tanks” which just makes me LOL a little.) I love how this trend blends masculine and feminine, and I love how there are so many different ways to style this androgynously piece. Looking forward to sharing more ways to style the vest over on IG stories, probably. Seems like that might be a good reels, yea?

    This is definitely a trend that would look absolutely nuts on my own frame, but I LOVE seeing it on others! You styled it precisely how I would want to if I did ever give it a try, however. I love the high boots and the high-low shirtdress beneath. So fun! I’m glad this photoshoot gave you the opportunity to enjoy creating content again. Having that experience is the BEST!
