Military Vest Style and $150 Nordstrom Gift Card Giveaway

Moms Do Fall Fashion

Last year we collaborated with a slew of fashionable mamas to bring you our Moms Do Fall Fashion Series and we were so thrilled with all the fall style inspiration our influencer collaborators shared, we thought we would team up to do it all over again this year! And first up, we have one of our long time friends, Carly from Thirty Something Fashion. After you’ve seen our featured fall outfit, make sure you head over to Carly’s site to see what she has in store for you! And speaking of today’s look, I decided to tackle the military vest.

Military Vest Style

I’ve loved the countless military vest outfits that I’ve seen all over Pinterest the past several years and I actually snagged my own a couple fall seasons ago, but I’d yet to style it until recently. I decided Moms Do Fall Fashion was the perfect opportunity to share with you my tips for how to wear a military vest…And my number one tip for putting a look together with it is to pair it with stripes. It doesn’t get much easier than that. They go together perfectly! If you’ve been around our site a time or two and checked out our fashion archives you know how much we love our stripes here at Take Time for Style, namely blue or navy stripes.

We’re of the firm belief that every girl needs a striped tee in their life and, if  you’re anything like us, more than one! I have a super comfy striped tee that I typically throw on with boyfriend jeans and comfy shoes like moccasins, but this time I decided to jazz things up a bit by throwing my forgotten military vest on over this go-to mom outfit of mine. And I loved the end result! I mean, I’m rockin’ a look I can comfortably run my fall errands in, but it’s much more fun than a plain old tee and jeans combo. What do you think? Do stripes and military vests make you as happy as they do me?

    Looooove the infinity scarves! I want to collect one in every color! I also am loving all the velvet dresses, I’d love to try one on! I’ve seen some in plum, and it’s gorgeous!

  2. Kenya F says

    I can’t wait for Fall to finally make its way to NY. It’s been a little too hot for me at this time. My favorite items for the fall are booties, sweaters and scarves!

  3. Kayte CookWatts says

    I just read that cabbie hats with feminine touches are in style. I love hats, I think they add “pop” and fun to any outfit.

  4. Jennifer Sakurai says

    So Cal tends to skip fall and go right into its version of “winter” (eventually). I can’t wait to wear jackets, my new booties, and get a spiced apple cider at Starbucks when it gets cooler!

    my favorite fall trend is boots. Unfortunately here in florida we don’t get many days that really feel like fall.

    I love the heritage plaid blazer trend for Fall this year! And booties for Fall will always be at the top of my list….

  8. mary ballerin says

    I’ve already liked army jackets, olive drab colored clothing but I also like the long, thin cardigans that hide ‘things’ 😉
