Little Old Lady Vest

I've had this vest for yonks but am always hesitant to wear it because it looks like something a little old lady would wear.  But, I love the subtle colour variations and just hate having something in the closet which sits there so hauled it out for today.

It seems to look less little old lady like with a skirt and this time I wore it with brown, so that might be the trick.

I had lots of layers and even wore a sweater-jacket over the whole thing, but our unseasonably warm weather allowed me to go sweater-less the whole day.

It's also been a while since I put my hair up (it's been in a ponytail for weeks), so today I switched back; it feels better - no hair on the neck.

    1. Thanks Melanie! I'm surprised the scarf kindof matched.

  2. I don't think it looks old lady at all, especially with the scarf added. I have several sweater vests, though I don't really wear them until January and February.

    1. Terri: you must live in a fairly warm place? This is the first time I've worn it with a big scarf - it looks okay.

  3. Not Old Lady to my eyes, Narda - I think it looks cozy and stylish and perfect for the chill.

    1. Hmm, might just try it with a belt next. Would probably look okay.
