Black Tweed and Burgundy: Outfit Inspiration

Good news- we have had the most gloriously sunny, blindingly bright and clear weather. Bad news- it's also freezing. For work, that means I need to be warm enough running from class to class outside, but also able to transition into a toasty 70+ degree classroom. Enter the ever-so-versatile vest! Is 2014 the year of the vest? I think so. I don't want to tell you how many I've bought this year. I wear the crap out of them though! So that justifies all the shopping, right? Right...

This tweed vest is so perfect for these clear, freezing days. It's super thick and lined with cozy fleece, and the collar is a bit oversized so I can pull it up around my ears and face when a gust of icy wind blows. Is it a little boxy? Yes, but I like that. Add a chunky knit scarf, sweater and boots and you are good to go. This is an Old Navy online-only style, so if you like it, order it before it's gone! They also carry a brown tweed version; also quite adorable.

One more thought- WHYYYY ARE THESE PANTS SO BAGGY. This morning they were a tad loose, after a day of work they are falling off. I'm hoping they will shrink in the wash, but does anyone have super-secret-ninja secrets for shrinking pants? I'm all ears!
