My favorite transitional item for fall has been this versatile Zara vest. The tweed and leather adds texture to the outfit, and makes a button up and pencil skirt look less stuffy. Try a vest in a fun pattern like stripes or camo, and layer it over a classic denim shirt. Plus, the vest covers just enough for your torso to be warm (think of it as an all-day hug).

    What a bold, fab mix! Like that you paired a tweed vest with a hot pink skirt.

    This is so cute! I never would have thought to put this together but it looks amazing – I love the casual vibe the vest & chambray shirt add to the pencil skirt, and I LOVE the color of the skirt! So fun!

    I'm in love with that tweed vest!! Perfect for Seattle fall.
    Question though, your Old Sage review disappeared? That's been on my list of places I wanted to go for my birthday, I'm curious how it was.

      Hi Meghan! The post is back up. I think The Old Sage would be a great spot for a birthday. Roomy bar in Capitol Hill (rare) with good ambiance, and delicious food and cocktails.
