A Versatile Vest For Spring!

Hey everyone! As you read this, I’m on my way back from North Carolina, so this is a quick post. We were only able to do one photoshoot down there so I thought I’d show you my new vest.

I have been looking for a long black vest since last fall because I only have a long sweater vest and it is used a lot (you’ve seen it many times including here) but it is a heavier sweater knit. This vest is a medium weight fabric so better for warmer weather. Plus, I really like the long slits in the side of the vest. It’s also available in white which will be nice for summer.

I’m pairing it with my jeans you’ve seen before (here)  I now have a new name for them. My husband saw me changing out of them and he said “Oh, are those control top jeans?” I said, “You don’t read my blog, do you?” So, now I have a new name for the maternity jeans thanks to my husband’s lack of interest in reading my blog! These “control top” jeans are also available in plus size.

If you’ve been reading this blog this spring, you’ve seen this top. I have been wearing it a lot because it’s so easy to throw on and go. You can see more of it here as well as these cute shoes from last spring.

Forgive my super poufy hair! My hair has a mind of it’s own and with high humidity it is emboldened to take up lots of room! I’ll be back in Michigan for Wednesday’s post so hopefully my hair will be better behaved! Have a great week!

  1. I could spot the humidity from 500 miles away, even before you said a word, LOL!

    Love the control-top jeans — good on your husband for his saving grace. “Um no, I don’t read your blog, but instead, I’ll come up with a delightful name for your jeans and endear myself to you.”
