The Long Vest

My vest obsession has been well documented online this year - from this brunch date outfit to this cozy Sunday getup, you are probably well aware that I LOVE A GOOD VEST. Meet this winter's top pick:

I love the length of it - it falls just at the knee on me (I'm 5'6) and it instantly elevates the look. It's by Rachel Roy (not to be confused with Rachel Ray - we've been there, done that already) and while it's no longer available, I have found some great alternatives if you'd like to round up your wardrobe with a long vest this season. I bought this vest at Marshalls because the selection has been fab at my local store lately and I can't resist a good deal. 

Check out your local discount department store for an awesome long vest or take a peek at these options from the interwebs (I'm dying for this black one):

The rest of the outfit was kept simple with a midi sweater dress by Vince, textured ankle boots which I've raved about in this post and a belt. Hair has got some good wave and texture thanks to a heavy dose of Bumble & Bumble Surf Infusion.

I'd forgotten how much I love this stuff.

Have you been picking up anything particularly cozy leading into winter? Or are you lucky and live somewhere warm? Michael and I are spending Christmas in Santa Monica this year and I am beyond excited to ditch the sub zero temperatures for a few days. I can already feel the Seasonal Affective Disorder kicking in...
