I have a thing for vests plus 5 gift guides

I have a thing for vests. They are the best way for me to layer in our climate and they serve a practical purpose for me at work on field days.

Vest- Amazon similar
shirt- Gap very similar  option  
jeans- Nordstrom
scarf- Loft (old) option 
shoes- Converse via Nordstrom

 I saw a blush vest on a blogger on Instagram and I had to have one. I love this one. Even though one set of pockets is fake (the flaps) the pocket at the zipper is ample enough for my phone, keys, and other small items I need when I work outside the office. I won't be sharing how I wear it outside the office because that's usually paired with khakis and very practical shoes, things I would not wear otherwise. But this vest also served as a great piece on a recent photo shoot, because again, the pockets! I could put my lens cap in there and small props and go about my business. The scarf added some fun to this outfit and my sneakers provided comfort but style. 

Speaking of scarves, while I was searching for similar scarves, I came across these. While not really similar, they do look like fun to wear. They have pom poms! Who couldn't smile in these?

The base pieces of my outfit are the same as this outfit- white tee and skinny jeans. With different accessories, shoes and completer pieces I have two totally different outfits. 

So, it's Friday and I'm exhausted. It feels like the longest week after that short whirlwhind holiday week last week. I don't have much for you in the way of Five for Friday but please check out these five gift guides if you need some holiday shopping help or inspiration:
