Dress: ‘Maya’ Maxi c/o Mikarose // Vest: American Eagle (old) similar here and here // Bag: Tory Burch c/o // Shoes: Jack Rogers ‘Lauren’ in White // Hat: Target // Bracelets: Bauble Bar ‘Pave Carrie Cuff’ and Taudrey ‘Roman Numeral Cuff’ c/o // Earrings: Bauble Bar ‘Volcano Drops’ c/o //
I can’t believe that it is already mid-August. This summer has flown by and in just a few weeks time I will head back to work. I can’t lie, while I am a summer girl through and through, I am just a little excited to start wearing my favorite fall pieces again! This cargo vest has been one of my staples for a few years now. I got so excited when we had a chillier summer day and I could pull it out. It paired so perfectly over my Mikarose maxi dress! This is definitely an outfit I will be wearing in September to school. It is the perfect teacher-outfit as it is comfy and modest! I am loving a lot of the clothing over at Mikarose for the modesty factor. As a first grade teacher, I need clothes that are easy to move in while still being professional and I am blown away by all of the fantastic options Mikarose has to offer!
This outfit is one I will re-create often and you can too! I’ve linked a bunch of similar military vest options below and check out all of the adorable maxi dress options here!

Love that dress! I was super impressed with the selection at Mika Rose. This came in timely as I am looking for a short sleeved, striped maxi dress 🙂 When I saw your post, I was like "perfect!" 🙂

Love this casual look! Such a fun touch with the vest and earrings 🙂
I absolutely adore this look!! I have a similar dress except it's black with white stripes. I think I might have to use this as my inspiration for an outfit next weekend!

I love that cargo vest! I have a black one and I tend to shove it towards the back of my closet because I never know what to wear with it. Thanks so much for the inspiration – pairing it with a maxi is perfect!

I'm seeing army vests everywhere! I definitely need to get one! That's a cute fall outfit!
As far as I started my working period, I don't have time at all and that's pretty hard sometimes. Because I'm still a student and my university has a lot of things for me as well. So, I'm working, using http://www.prowriterscenter.com/ that makes my life much easier. At least, that's amazing writing service and I'm happy just to read everything they write.
