Happy Friday everyone, if you’ve been following along with Haute Off The Rack for the past few years, then you know that I have a whole closet full of olive vests and jackets. However, I always only wear them in the fall and don’t think I’ve ever worn one during the summer. So when I recently came across this olive utility vest on ModCloth’s site I knew I had to have it, but didn’t want to wait all of the way until fall to wear it. I was determined to style it with a summer look, but I was going to wait for the right outfit. Finally, I decided to take it for a spin with a pair of black high waist shorts and a striped tank. I love the idea of wearing fitted, high waist shorts, but then once I’ve got them on I feel so exposed. In most cases, I would have just left my shirt untucked, but then it just really defeats the whole purpose of high waist shorts so the vest was the perfect solution. I get to show how cute the shorts are from the front, but then I don’t feel so exposed in the back.
