Last year I was on the hunt for a utility vest after coveting them from afar; Meghan was so helpful in tracking one down for me (which I got for a deal from Talbotts) and we laughed about doing a fashion blog hop showcasing our vests. Well, when she earnestly asked months later I was more than eager to join in on the fun! Affiliate links used. A small commission may be received if you purchase an item through my links.

Layers are key in my part of California because we don't usually have full blown seasonal weather but the proximity to the ocean gives us a foggy and cool climate during our "Fall". I pretty much layer every day (see this post for more examples) so I was in my element with these outfit. I also have a little treat for you at the end of this post, so stick with me!
Plaid is the print of fall, isn't it? And this plaid button down is my favorite right now, all the colors are beautiful together! I normally wouldn't have paired this with the colored jeggings but the extra pop of color is really pretty so I'm glad I did.
Again with the plaid! Everything in this outfit is basic but the scarf dresses it up. I wore this on Sunday and was cozy all day.
If I was to label this outfit it would be "date night casual" (is that a thing?) It's part dressy part casual and totally fall!
This is my favorite outfit of the bunch. I pretty much bought the gingham button down just so I could wear it with my favorite owl sweater (which I purchased to wear specifically for Kinsey's owl-themed 2nd Birthday party back in 2013.)And the top-down view.
Now for the treat- as I was gathering pictures for this post I randomly came across these darling pictures of Kinsey rocking her utility vest back in 2014! I can only hope to look as cute as she does in her vest #lifegoals
Look familiar? ;)
And that's all I got! Don't forget to check out these other fashionable ladies to see how they styled their utility vests!:
