Stripes and a Cozy Vest - What I Wore Wednesday

       I recently purchased this Patagonia Los Gatos vest. I have had my eye on it for the past two winters and finally found a reason to purchase it! One of the days that we are in New Zealand, we will be on a glacier. Amongst several other items, the itinerary recommends layering with a polyester vest….BAM! My sunglasses are Ray-Ban Aviators New Classic 59mm with a mirror blue lens. 

       The jeans are the PAIGE Verdugo. I am constantly carrying on about how much I adore PAIGE Denim. I love their jeans because they hold their shape really well and I do not find myself pulling them up constantly. The wash on this pair is very flattering and the distressed look adds a little edginess to the preppier top half of the outfit.
       My booties are the same mentioned in this post – purchased during Nordstrom’s N Sale in July. They are a tan suede and slip on and off without a zipper. I’ve worn them with shorts, leggings, and jeans. They’re super comfy and can be dressed up or down.
       As always, I’m wearing my Michael Kors watch, mentioned in this post. For this look, I kept it simple by adding a Lokai bracelet and the David Yurman X Station to the stack.

When I make decisions on purchasing rather expensive clothing items (anything over $100,) I take several things into consideration. (That blog post is currently in the works.) Purchasing this vest was an easy “yes,” in my book. Patagonia is known for the quality of its materials, I will definitely get my money’s worth as this vest is super versatile, can be worn during several seasons and will help me stay warm on that glacier! Also, I have waited to see if something else would catch my eye, but I keep coming back to it. SOLD!

The striped 3/4 length shirt is from J.Crew; it's super soft and great for layering! I bought it over the summer and have worn it at least once a week since the beginning of fall.
