I received complimentary product from Orvis for this review. Of course, all opinions are my own.

Spring is always a tough season to dress for because you want to be cute, but at the same time it’s important for clothes to be functional so you don’t miss out on all the things that make spring great – barbecues, hiking, picnics, fishing, drinks on the patio…you know the drill. You might look cute, but there’s nothing worse than a fussy sundress that you can’t even sit down in when everyone else is carefree and loving life!

I recently discovered Orvis and I love that their products are made for an outdoorsy lifestyle. Now come on, I’m not going to front and pretend like I’m some super outdoorsy gal – and my closet reflects that. If someone invites me to a picnic I’m either going to wear something super inappropriate like a tulle skirt or something really lame like jeans and a t shirt. Currently I’m either fashion or function – it’s hard for me to do both.

I picked up this olive utility vest and it has been on HEAVY rotation because it seriously goes with everything! Orvis’s classic silhouettes mean that you’re going to get something that fits well that you can wear season after season because classic never goes out of style. If you’re like me and you’re a big fan of trends, it’s SO important to have some classic pieces in your closet to ground your style and keep you from having to rework your wardrobe every year.

A few weeks ago, I was attending an outdoor lunch but it was with some other bloggers so I still wanted to look semi dressy. I threw the vest over a midi dress, added some sandals and I was set! Since then I’ve worn this vest over numerous dresses, with jeans and a cute tank top and even with jean shorts and a t shirt. I’m all about a good finishing piece and this utility vest totally fits the bill and goes with everythiiiiiiing, whether you’re going to spend the spring day on the lake fishing or at the mall shopping! The fabric is lightweight and breathable so it can easily survive the Texas heat but it’s structured enough to make you look pulled together.
