Hey Ya’ll,
Today’s post isn’t gonna be an outfit like all the rest of my posts have been. This post is going to be about vests! Sorry if you wanted an outfit…  But I just thought I would post something different today!
To help ya’ll think about vests and what you can wear them with. Also, to help you know where to purchase vests from if you are in need of some.

Ok so, I like how vests look, feel, fit… ect. But, I live in an area where the temperature rarely goes under 50 degrees, except for Winter… Then it rarely goes under 40 degrees. Anyways, a vest isn’t really a good fit for me right now. I wouldn’t be able to get much wear out of it. Some of you reading this, may live in the North where it does get cold and icy and you need a vest for warmth. Vests can be a good clothing item to have if you do live there. Vests don’t have to just be ugly and warm… They can be cute and warm!
5 Reasons to purchase a vest:
1.       Warmth- Sometimes it can be a little chilly and instead of wearing a jacket, a vest might be a good way to change things up
2.       Adding a pop of color- Sometimes an outfit just needs that pop of something! Your outfit, might need a vest!
3.       Layering- Some people like to layer, even when it’s not cold outide. I think it looks nice and neat, and a vest can be a good layer to add.
4.       Slip in, Slip out- Vests can be easy to take on and off, if you can’t decide if you’re warm or cold.
5.       Easy to pack- If you do traveling in the colder months,  it might be easier to pack up a vest, instead of a full coat.
