OOTD 12.14.17: J.Crew Utility Jacket and Striped Tee

Olive J.Crew Utility Jacket (this has lasted for 6 years!) | $19 Long Sleeve Striped Tee | High Waisted Jeans | Thermal Leggings | Similar Riding Boots

Alternate Style: Red Flats | Red Plaid Scarf

This is literally my go to outfit. Any day that I just don’t have the inspiration to figure out something chic, I put on this combination. What I love about this utility jacket plus striped tee combination is that it actually looks like you tried! You can wear this on the weekend or to the office if you work in a casual workplace too!

This olive J.Crew utility jacket is one of my favorite purchases. Initially, I thought it was so overrated. However, it’s lasted over 6 years and it’s been through the washer. In my book, if something survives the washer (and doesn’t require dry cleaning), that’s a huge win. It’s just one of those basics that every girl needs in her closet. Don’t get me wrong, I’ve tried other military jackets too but this one just fits the best and has the most versatility!

This striped tee is another Nordstrom steal because it’s only $19. I wear it all the time whenever I want to incorporate a little more print into my outfit. It’s a great layering basic and since it’s under $20, you won’t feel guilty about buying it in multiple colors. There are 6 colors and prints total! I also like to wear this combination with a red plaid scarf! And in warmer temperatures, I swap out the boots for red flats. It looks really good, I promise!

These Tory Burch riding boots were one of my investment purchases from the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale earlier this year! I had been holding out, waiting for the sale to purchase! They’re out of stock now but I’ve rounded up some similar riding boots! I just love the way riding boots look with a good pair of skinny jeans.

OOTD 12.6.17: Rose Tunic & Ripped Boyfriend Jeans

blush pink tunic with distressed boyfriend jeans and bruno magli pumps - OOTD 12.6.17: Rose Tunic & Ripped Boyfriend Jeans by Chicago fashion blogger Visions of Vogue

$28 Dusty Rose Tunic | Ripped Boyfriend Jeans (Nordstrom)| Bruno Magli Alina Pumps  (20% off with code JENNA20)| Trench Coat | Beige Tote | $20 Marble iPhone Case 

I die. How adorable are these Bruno Magli pumps? I love the little buckle on them and the heel height. You’ve heard me talk about Bruno Magli a few weeks back when they had a flash sale on a few items. I just got my order before we went on vacation and couldn’t wait to refresh my work pumps! You can get 20% off their site with code JENNA20 too if you’re looking for some new designer shoes!

As I mentioned on Instagram, this is definitely a more edgy work look. Since I’m wearing ripped boyfriend jeans, it’s not for every office but these shoes could easily go with any skinny jeans, work slacks, and work skirts too. Same goes for this $28 tunic! Just basically swap out these ripped boyfriend jeans for whatever your office wardrobe policy allows!

As a reminder, I’ve styled this tunic so many times here for work! It’s the best and I own it in 4 colors. It’s always coming back in stock in new colors so keep checking back. For more ideas check out all of my OOTDs and also look here for how to wear it with leggings!

November Instagram Fashion Round Up (13 outfits)

It’s that time again! Another month down which means it’s time for a little Instagram fashion. November was a great month and so much happened here on Visions of Vogue. I talked about the best tall boots and how to wear ankle boots, OOTDs were in full force, and I launched gift guides for the holidays! There were also a bunch of great new outfits on Instagram. Here are the most popular ones!

what to wear to a fall wedding

Burgundy Midi Dress | Beige Heels | Similar Clutch | Tortoise Sunglasses | Bar Necklace | Statement Drop Earrings

This burgundy midi dress was one of my favorites! I love the burgundy color and the lace details on the skirt. It’s a little on the higher end in price point although still under $200 which, for a holiday dress, is a great deal! This is definitely something you could wear season after season and to multiple different types of events – weddings, holiday parties, and any other formal occasion.

10 Most Popular Casual Friday Outfit Ideas

It’s been almost two months since I started my daily OOTDs on Instagram Stories! I began them as a way to share the outfits that I wear to work, not thinking so many of you would love them! Finding work outfit inspiration can be tough and not terribly exciting so I’m here to help. Today’s post is all about casual Friday outfit inspiration!

At any time, you can go to my home page, tap the “Fashion” tab and click on “OOTDs” if you miss a day or need to look back at older posts for ideas. They’re all there!

OOTD: Neck Sweater & Skinny Jeans

grey cowl neck sweater, flannel top, and high waist paige skinny jeans - OOTD: Neck Sweater & Skinny Jeans by Chicago style blogger Visions of Vogue

Grey Cowl Neck Sweater (8 colors!) | Flannel Top (under $50, 5 colors!) | High Waist Skinny Jeans (33% off, size down a size!) | Grey Pumps | Grey Tote | Grey Coat

So I wore this cowl neck sweater last week alone but wanted to try styling it with layers. I think I might have mentioned that in my Instagram Stories. And I’m so happy with how it turned out! I love that this flannel is super relaxed – the textures worked out perfectly together. This flannel also comes in 5 colors so you have tons of options depending on the color palette you want. If you’re in between sizes, size down – I ordered my regular size because I’m tall though and it wasn’t crazy baggy!

As y’all already know, this cowl neck sweater also comes in 8 colors so between that and the flannel, the color combinations are plentiful. It’s a very lightweight cozy sweater – almost like a thermal. It’s great for the slightly warmer days if you’re in a cold climate where you don’t needs tons of protection under your puffer coat. It’s also great for my west coast and southern girls all the time!

The rest of my outfit is a little deja vu – my high waist skinnies are back in action! These are just so versatile. Last week I talked about how finding the perfect denim is half the battle of styling ankle boots and these jeans are perfect for that too. From pumps to booties to thick snow boots, they are my go to and are the most versatile pair I own.  Just size down a size because they stretch!

Here are some more button down/plaids that are 50% off this weekend!!
