Olive Utility Vest + Brick Red Sweatshirt Tee

Good morning! I hope you had a lovely weekend. Ours was blissfully uneventful, and once again, I have to say how stunning the fall colors are in our area right now. This is an easy, casual fall outfit that I wore last Saturday to a ladies’ Bible study and then later on to the mall with my daughter. If you ask me, this is the quintessential casual fall outfit. I love everything about it. The combination of brick red and olive with denim and mushroom suede ankle boots is perfect for this time of year.

The sweatshirt tee from LOFT is the perfect everyday top. It has the style of a sweatshirt, but the feel of a t-shirt, so it’s perfect for this unpredictable weather we’ve been having. I can throw on the utility vest and ankle boots when I’m going out so I look put together, but around the house, I just wear the top and jeans, and I’m so comfortable that I might as well be wearing pajamas.

I love the back of this vest. I know it’s sold out (so sorry!) but I wanted to grab a shot of it anyway. (Someone needs to utilize her iron more often!!)

For accessories, I threw on my chevron necklace and Alex & Ani bangles. When I went to look for a ring, I realized this Pauline statement ring would work beautifully. It may be a bit much for this simple outfit, but I thought it added just enough pizzazz to make it fun.

I carried my animal print tote because I love how the neutral colors work into the outfit, and because it’s lightweight and holds a ton. What more can a mom ask for!?!

Simple, easy, but put together. That’s why I love this outfit.
