I love going to happy hour, as I'm sure many of you do too! It's nice to unwind after a long week and kick back with a drink while watching the sun go down. Now that I'm in my 30's, I'd much rather do this at a reasonable time and be home before dark so I can cuddle up with my dog, tear off my clothes and put yoga pants on, and watch Netflix. That's exactly what Nate and I did last Thursday and it was sheer perfection. A cold glass of bubbly prosecco, the last glimmer of light overlooking the mountains, and a charcuterie board to snack on while chuckling to ourselves about how the neighboring table had clearly started drinking at...let's just say a few hours earlier. We weren't able to catch up to them, but we still considered the happy hour a success. No hangover to show for it.

You know what else is pretty darn perfect? This long olive vest, which I can say with a bit of embarrassment that I have worn to absolute death. I throw it on over everything. I don't know what it is, but having that extra layer just adds a certain something. It makes you look thinner too, because it gives the illusion of a smaller waist and flatter tummy. Hey, after some appetizers and drinks, I needed all the help I could get!


  1. Oh yea this is my type of happy hour too and I know why you love this vest. I got mine at Target and I'm obsessed with it.


  2. I really need to get a vest like this, love it!

  3. Thank you ladies! Target has a lot of vests like mine. Plenty to choose from! I'm wearing mine year-round

  4. Alright. Next time I'm in Target I will be peeking at their vest options! Love the way you styled it here, and I'm 100% with you on starting the night early...and ending it early!

  5. I seriously love the extra cuteness the olive vest adds to outfits....don't know what it is about olive outerwear - it's casual but so cute & even more versatile than a denim jacket.

  6. That sounds like sheer perfection! I love it. A charcuterie board is one of my favorite things too. I am totally with you about going and being done before it's too late because, hello, I'm old now. I'm missing glasses of wine and margs while pregnant. This is such a pretty outfit. Love how you layered.

  7. Love happy hour and love this vest over the dress! I totally agree that it adds interest without so much bulk or effort!
