style it two ways: cargo vest




I would like to thank OLD NAVY for bringing back the cargo vest, with a little bit of a face lift! Every time I saw a blogger in it, it broke my heart just a little bit that I didn't have one. So you can imagine how excited I was when I saw the updated TWILL CARGO VEST online. It fits like a glove, and next to my denim jacket, it's the most versatile piece in my closet. I dressed it up with the lace skirt, but the next day (yes the NEXT DAY) I wore it bowling with jeans and a tank top.
I would also like to thank Chioma of CHIOMA'S EVOLUTION OF STYLE for inviting me to be part of Style It Two Ways. She was one of the first bloggers I saw in the vest (LOVE THIS LOOK) so my mind instantly went to this vest for the challenge. This girl has great style, and she also has fun fashion tips. So head on over to her blog and see the FULL POST of how she styled the original cargo vest.

  3. Old Navy's cargo vest is by far one of my favorite versatile pieces in my closet. Last year, I bought it in both colors. I heart it so!

    I like the way you dressed up the cargo vest. Your lace skirt is so pretty. And Chioma's outfit is cute, too.
