the minute i set my eyes on something while shopping i create a mental image of my wardrobe and try to fit the new item in it. i try to create outfits in my mind, see what it would go best with, how versatile it is and how many wears it would get in one or maybe more seasons. this vest was a rather impulsive buy and i new first hand it would be quite difficult to insert it in my wardrobe. i figured i would find a way to style it in the end and bought it anyway. i put the moment of choice off for a while and after a failed attempt one morning, when i tried about 5 or 6 outfits that would incorporate it, i gave up. i also ended up being late for work because of that. i couldn't for the life of me figure out what to wear it with, i was in such a blockage. i guess i got stuck trying to wear it over dresses and skirts, and then realized i should try something else. i decided to dress up a simple jeans and t-shirt ensemble and it seemed to work. i know if i put my mind to it i will find a myriad of ways to wear it, i just need to try harder. i rather liked the result and how all the colors complement my hair color. i know, i've been obsessing lately over trying new stuff out to match my hair. also, this is a great way of transitioning some summer pieces into fall. i am sure you'll see this vest a lot this season, it's a keeper.
