Outfit Series: A Perfect Monogrammed Vest

Hope everyone’s January is going well so far. I have had a busy month to say the least. I have a lot of cool things coming up towards the end of the month that I can not wait to get started on!

I am finally re-doing my room. (For those of you who don’t know me…I don’t really like my room.) Around 6 or 7 years ago I went through a very simple phase, decor-wise. I absolutely loved the way it turned out it was beautiful and elegant but I painted my walls a very dark purple and lets just say the room is not properly lit most of the day. It can get really annoying when I am trying to read, or get dressed, or do my make up… the list goes on… It is going to be so great having a new light color on the walls. I am most excited about the natural light coming through better. Painting the walls is the biggest change of this process, I have been planning for this room change since the summer-time so I have a lot of my decor already picked out and purchased ready to go. I am excited to see things come to life.

In other news I did a recent closet purge and man did it feel great to just be ruthless with myself and get rid of those pieces I wasn’t wearing anymore as well as the things that didn’t fit me quite right. I am going to try my best to cut down on shopping as its one of my resolutions for the year and I feel like I am at a great point in my wardrobe to really wear and love the pieces I already own.

One of the pieces that I grab on repeat is this reversible plaid monogrammed vest sent to me by Marley Lilly. It is always such a pleasure to work with them. I feel super blessed to be able to create content for a brand that I love. Their clothes are such great quality and anything with a monogram on it is right up my alley for sure.

The great thing about this vest is that it is reversible. Its a really great way to spruce up a plain old sweater and jeans look. This plaid in particular is one of my favorites and I find it complements the camel color side of the vest really well. Its a great neutral piece with a fun pop!

I had a matching scarf from target that I got like four or five years ago. Everyone always compliments me on it when I wear it, I wish they would bring it back its such a classic look but I had fun pairing the scarf with this vest. I kept the rest of the outfit simple because I really wanted the vest to be my statement. I am someone who LOVES turtlenecks so I paired my vest with this cream turtleneck sweater from Talbots, my usual jeans and riding boots. I absolutely love how both of these outfits turned out. So simple, classic, and timeless…perfect for the winter months!

I’ll link what I can below so you can score some of those after Christmas deals. Be sure to check out Marley Lilly they have such amazing, personalized pieces if you are looking for something to spend your Christmas money on or if you want to get a gift for a loved one…and the prices are amazing too! There is always a good deal on their site.
