When I was a teen, my mom and dad used to wear matching khaki utility vests. They always looked like they were going on safari together. Everywhere we’d go, they ‘d be in their matching married couple outfit. (my friends would always ask me what’s up).
Once they tried to make it a family affair and get me one too. I swore right then and there that I’d never wear one. Ever.
Fast forward to 2015 and here I am. Granted, mine is blue and white, but same idea. (I’d actually love a khaki one too!). This particular vest from Ashley B has detachable sleeves, which is perfect for late summer days that are warm in the afternoon and chilly at night.
