Fall Capsule #1: Vested Interest


Can’t get enough of this fall weather that we’ve been experiencing lately in Indiana. Because I love wearing fall items and layering and boots and seasonal coffee drinks. Like the typical “basic” girl that I am (see this post if you need more details).

However, just as soon as I said that, the weather this weekend made an increase in temperature. Don’t worry, I still got to build a fire in our fire pit and enjoy a s’mores (or two). Priorities, people.

ps. We took these in the backyard, so of course Coopy had to make an appearance. He’s adorable, no?


Outfit 6

  • On Target item: Merona Red Plaid Favorite Shirt (exact, other patterns)
  • Hat: Target (only in stores right now; check this post for more options)
  • Vest: Old Navy (exact, three other colors too; such a great J.Crew dupe!)
  • Purse: Merona, Target (exact – see my review here)
  • Jeans: Denizen, Target (exact)
  • Boots: Corso Como, Nordstrom (scored during their Labor Day week sale; similar)

  • Mattie Roush

    I’m happy to see the vest for real (i.e. not on the ON website) because I had been searching for a red quilted not super puffy vest (and J Crew is a bit spendy for my taste…) so once I saw they added the red color of this online I asked my mom to order it for me for Christmas! I love it, now I’m even more excited for mine!

    • Yes! I’m excited for you to get it for Christmas too! It’s more of an orange red than a true red, but in my opinion, it plays really well with true reds and will work great with a lot of other colors too (navy for example would be GORGEOUS with it)!

  • Love the fall colors!

  • Another perfect vest + boots combo! Cute.

  • If this isn’t so perfectly you and perfectly fall I don’t know what is. I love the vest, plaid, boots, hat. Perfection.

  • I really love this vest! So many of the puffers are burgundy/wine/maroon, which is problematic since my plaid shirts have true red in them. #plaidproblems

    • Also, question for you: did you order your normal size in this vest? I’ve been reading the reviews online, and they seem to indicate that perhaps sizing down would be a good idea.

      • Thanks Caroline! This is more of an orange red, but plays nicely with the true red in the plaid, in my opinion. I ordered a Small Tall for my vest, which at Old Navy is my normally size (I fluctuate between the small and medium there if they don’t have the tall options), but yes, sizing down would have been my recommendation if they didn’t have the tall. Sorry for the delay! Hope that helps!

  • Oh if this isn’t the greatest outfit I’ve ever laid eyes on! Thanks for linking to the quilted vest, I’m pretty sure I’ll be ordering one soon and wearing this exact outfit in no time!

  • LOVE the shirt. This outfit is so quintessentially fall. <3 makes me so excited for cooler weather!

    And yes, that pup is seriously cute!

    Loving the vests so far! Seriously thinking about adding one to my wardrobe.

  • This vest had me going straight over to the ON website…especially since I just got a coupon in the mail! I love layers and can’t wait to style this for Fall.

    • It’s perfect! The only thing that is definitely different from the J.Crew version is the weight of the vest (this one is a touch thinner) and that the Old Navy one only has one zipper instead of two! Hope you love it!
