I think I have an olive green utility vest/jacket obsession. I recently decided I HAD TO HAVE both a utility vest and utility jacket. Both in olive green. So, off I went. I hunted both down and now am the proud owner of both items, with not too big of a dip in my bank account!
The first item I found was the utility jacket. I first saw it on my friend Sarah of ShopsSRJ. She wore it so casually and described it as the perfect ‘throw on and go’ jacket that, well, I had to have it! So, I searched and searched and found the one below on eBay for $8.
Details: Jacket, eBay, similar here and here; Dress, Gap, here; Shoes, Plato’s Closet, similar here; Necklace, Banana Republic, similar here; Bracelets, Forever 21, here; Bag, Louis Vuitton, buy used here.
I love the length, the slouchy sleeves, and the fact that it’s light enough to wear during the summer. Layers are important during the summer, particularly when frequenting air-conditioned places. This outfit I wore to a coffee date with girlfriends, followed by a little bit of shopping. Notice I’m wearing slip-on shoes and clothing that is easily removed in case I need to try on clothes and shoes in a jiffy! A girl’s gotta think ahead! 😉
Next, I hunted down the utility vest I could not get my mind off. I found it during a grocery shopping trip to Target, because you know I can’t grocery shop at Target without perusing the clothing/shoes/accessories sections of the stores, haha. So there is was, in its $30 glory. They happened to have a $10 off coupon available that day, and I also used my Target Red Card, so in all, I saved $11.50. Not too shabby!
Details: Dress, old from Target, similar here and here; Vest, Target, here; Necklace, Walmart, similar here and here; Shoes, Michael Kors via TJ Maxx, similar here and here; Bag, TJ Maxx, similar here and here; Belt, Altuzarra for Target, similar here and here.
I wore this outfit to the office and my office mates seemed to like it as much as I did! I’ve pinned some other combinations on Pinterest in case you’re interested in buying and styling it other ways. Find me on Pinterest here.
