What I wore Last Weekend: Color Me Happy

Hey everyone! Sorry there hasn't been a post since last Friday.. I got a new puppy this weekend and so all of my attention has been on him! I'll show some pics of him on the blog soon :)

Anyway... I don't have an inspiration photo for this outfit... It's just one of those items of clothing I wanted to wear and share with you guys on GJU!

This crochet vest is one of my all-time favorite pieces of clothing in my wardrobe. It's bright, colorful, fun, well-made, and always starts a conversation no matter where I wear it. For real. Always.

The best part about this vest is that I can wear it with anything: long sleeves, short sleeves, a tank top, black, white, any color in the pattern.. it's so versatile! I'm a firm believer that certain articles of clothing can make you happy. Every time I wear this vest, it makes me happy. And I find that it makes other people happy as well.

I'm fully aware that not everyone wants a rainbow explosion on their back... but for those who aren't afraid of color...You guys like it?

  1. Jess, you know how much I love this vest. it's like you have some sort of quarry on your back. no doubt, you'll attract the opposite sex without further ado :) - excited for my FF this week!

  2. Wow, looks amazing. The first shot looks like you have a wicked tan line thing going on. Right above your shirt cut. I'm sure its a shadow. But def looking great, one of my fave outfits that you have shown on the blog. Keep it up I enjoy seeing what your up to everyday!
    Really love the shoes too.

    -Probably one of your only male followers, How about a Man's fashion day?

  3. Kelly-- thanks girl! Yes I know you love this vest! I do too! I'm also looking SO forward to your FF :)

  4. Anonymous-- Thank you! I also noticed the weird lighting shadow on my neck area, but the pic was fine otherwise so I didn't re-take it haha! Thanks so much for checking in on Get Jessed Up, even though it doesn't necessarily apply to you.

    I'm definitely thinking about having a men's fashion post. keep checking back and hopefully you won't miss it :)
