A big day required an outfit I'd never put together before. I had to dress the part of a competent, professional lady poindexter. Enter: the sweater vest.

Vest - Etsy
Shirt - Ralph Lauren (a steal at Marshall's)
Skirt - H&M
Excuse the photos, but I haven't addressed my camera issues, so I still have to rely on Instagram. This sweater vest, called the reporter vest, is a 1970s find I snapped up from Etsy last year. I don't have a ton of navy in my wardrobe but I loved the vest. Being a wee bit superstitious, I took it as a good sign that it was called the reporter vest, since I want to be a journalist when I grow up. I'm no longer writing for a website as a bread and butter job but I love that I still get to work with words and revel in my nerdiness while soaking up more trivia and stuff.
I also recently got these shoes for $40 from Urban Outfitters. I'm fairly sure you can't buy a pack of candy at UO for $40, so I was thrilled:
Finally, the perfect heeled oxford! This search took forever. I see these shoes becoming a big, big part of my wardrobe.
