Pinspiration of the Week: Dress with Vest

I'm getting back from yet another work trip. As I mentioned in my packing light post, dresses are my go-to travel outfit. The challenge was, I traveled from Milwaukee, where it was in the 20s, back to St. Louis, where it was pushing 70 degrees. I was going straight from the airport to the office. I chose this sweater dress and my Report "Marks" booties. I added my faux leather vest for extra warmth under my coat in Milwaukee, then ditched my coat when I got to St. Louis and let the vest serve as added interest to the outfit. A vest is such an easy way to break up the monotony of a sweater dress (or any outfit really), not to mention that it takes up minimal space in my carry on. Had I not had to worry about finding boots that would easily fit in the shoe compartment of my OG bag, I would have loved to pair this with knee high cognac boots. Spring is quickly approaching, but I still have a soft spot for cognac!

It's Friday, which means it's time for another link up with Amy at Coffee Beans and Bobby Pins. This week I selected my Kate Spade Saturday dress for the link up! Click below to check out her blog and link up, too!
