First of all, we do not have snow. I repeat: we do not have snow. We haven't for a few weeks, but this outfit post kept getting pushed back for various reasons. I didn't want to completely forget about it though because I really liked the outfit and it definitely works well for spring around here. Thank goodness I only have one other outfit with snow in the background!

This jeweled button up and olive quilted vest were both somewhat neglected items in my closet until recently. I had been wanting to pull out the vest again and wasn't sure what to wear it with while I was searching for a replacement chambray. This oxford shirt was perfect and I like the way the embellishments elevate the whole look. I got this shirt for a steal at Kohls a while back and although it is no longer available, I have linked to several options. I've also seen it on thredUP occasionally for less than $10! If you find one and use my referral code, it's free!

  7. So glad you don't have snow. :) Loving this outfit though. It's a good spring transitional look for when the weather is still chilly. Vests make great layers.

  8. Love this casual look! Knowing that you are in Wisconsin, you might be getting snow right now. :( I think I will be just missing that being in Chicago. Have a great day Laura!

  9. Ha ha about the snow....if I didn't know better I'd just think you were living around here (we got a blizzard yesterday)! I'm a big fan of vests---especially this time of year and I love this one. It may be quilted but it's not too puffy which I think it quite flattering! jodie

  10. The weather in KC has been a little bi-polar lately; it'll be really warm one day, then drop in temp overnight and be cold the next. It actually snowed for a little while this a.m.! Haha.

    Love that quilted vest, lady!

  14. The jewels on the collar of that chambray top are so cute! I really love the vest you have on, too... it doesn't look too 'puffy' like some of mine!

  15. I'm glad that you don't have snow anymore, that's good! This is such a cute look, especially for the in-between weather that we get so much of this time of year. That vest reminds me of one I sent back that was in a Stitch Fix box that I wish I hadn't--such a great, versatile color!

  16. I love the jeweled collar! I tried to find one I liked, but the ones that were stiff enough to support the rhinestones fit me poorly, and the softer fabrics were overtaken by rhinestones. But I do love this one on you!

  17. Hahaha this happens to me too sometimes! I end up pushing an outfit back and back and then I'm like...."wait, I don't even wear glasses anymore!" or something. LOVE this shirt. The jewelled collar is so cute, and it looks awesome with the olive vest

  18. That is too funny about the snow. And I love the replacement for your chambray shirt! The detail on the collar is gorgeous. It looks amazing paired with the vest!

  21. I still have a few outfits to post with snow too (check out tomorrow's post) but then again we got more snow this weekend. I am glad you posted this because it is simple and comfortable yet chic. Great vest. It reminds me to wear my olive vest.

    I like your SheIn picks, especially the two pretty blouses and the coat.
