Cargo vest swap

So excited to let y’all know that my post last Friday was chosen to be featured in today’s style linkup over at Simple Easy Style. 🙂

And I’m also excited to tell you about my cargo vest swap with Erin @ Loop Looks. At the end of September, Erin posted about whether or not she should keep an Old Navy cargo vest she’d recently ordered, because it was too long for her petite frame. As Erin had admired my own Old Navy cargo vest for close to a year now, I left a comment that perhaps we should switch vests — and Erin took me up on my offer! We first exchanged measurements of each other’s vests (which were both size Small, but Erin’s vest was a full 5 inches longer than mine!)  and then shipped them off to each other.

And I’m so pleased that it totally worked out! The length of Erin’s vest works better on my taller frame, and I really like the collar detail and the larger pockets (which now also fit my new smartphone!). I tried out the new cargo vest this past weekend, inspired by this week’s “Inspiration Monday” challenge.

What do y’all think? And thanks to Erin, for being such a great blogger friend! 😀

And just for old time’s sake, here’s a look at some of the greatest hits starring my first Old Navy cargo vest:

    Cute! I do think the longer length is better than the shorter one was, but I like ’em both, really. It’s your boots I’m really eyeballing today. I need a pair of black boots! But then I hardly ever wear anything black. So who knows what I need. Maybe I just WANT black boots, haha.

    Great look!!! I am so loving the cargo vest right now too. I wish I had snagged one like yours. I got mine from Forever 21 and it’s a little balloon like on the bottom. I like how yours is slightly cinched.
