Long Gray Vest + Picket Fence Giveaway

I’m a big proponent of having a wardrobe full of staples that you’ll wear over and over. There’s nothing worse than having a closet of items you’ll only wear once, right?! Of course, a striped tee is always one of my top staple picks, along with a great pair of black jeans. But one item I didn’t have until recently was a long gray vest! Vests are a staple that can be worn to work and on the weekend, especially when they’re a tailored version like this one.
