Now that the fall temps are here, it's time to break out the outerwear pieces... but not so fast though! While yes the temps are cooler walking to work in the morning, the afternoons are still quite warm. So for now, it's all about the layers. I've been really digging the long, duster vest trend this year. I've admired how well many other bloggers have styled them, so I decided to give the trend a try.

I found this speckled vest when I was thumbing through the newest arrivals from Tart Collections.

The pattern instantly drew me in. I wanted a vest that popped, as opposed to an outerwear piece that blended in with the other pieces I was wearing. So I paired this vest with a simple chambray shirt and black denim jeans. I thought the speckled pattern would pop off the black jeans quite well. I really love how the outfit turned out! I'm actually wearing it today for a casual workday and then on to an after work happy hour.

If a vest isn't quite your style, this pattern is also made in a blazer version. I would so wear this with a black pencil skirt and neutral shell to work!

As aa side note, I really am obsessed with the new arrivals from Tart Collections. Prior to them reaching out to me a few months ago, I had actually never heard of the brand. When I flipped through their fall collection, I was instantly hooked. There's so many gorgeous staple pieces that I'd love to add to my fall wardrobe. Like this winter white top (how cool is the texture on this?!), olive field jacket, these super comfortable leather looking pants (almost like leggings) and another great vest option as well.
