Our favorite Stylist Blogger, Catherine, of has given her take on the NEW (fall favorite) Vest ($45.00), now available in our Retail Store and coming soon to the Online Shop!

Welcome Autumn!

The calendar has finally ticked over here in the Big Apple and we are welcoming the crisp mornings with open arms and steaming mugs of coffee! This is my absolute favorite season for fashion; I love layering different textures and cozying up to take long walks and watch the leaves turn, pick pumpkins and bake cookies. Call me basic, but I can’t get enough! So when my friend Beth at Chatham Thread Works sent me this snuggly, stylish and (my favorite!) personalized knit vest, I couldn’t wait to find all kinds of ways to style it into my fall wardrobe. My best girlfriend Ashley fell in love with mine when she saw me wearing it out for the first time and had to order one for herself! I convinced her to take some photos with me to show how every gal needs one of these super wearable and versatile vests!
​Vest and Bag: Chatham Thread Works. Booties: Frye.
​Ashley shows off her pretty Snow Script “A” by belting the vest and draping the collar fabric like a shawl over her shoulders. It looks feminine and chic and I love how the neutral colors in her outfit make the blue of the bag really stand out!
​It was a brisk morning, so I decided to wear my vest over my favorite leather jacket to give me an extra layer of warmth! I also pinned a decorative patch to secure the end near my shoulder-which helped to show off my initials in the front-win, win!
​Vest: Chatham Thread Works. Jacket: Vince. (Old.Similar) Jeans: Citizens of Humanity.
(my current closet favorite!) Nails: Essie Wicked.
​We played around a little to try out a couple other fun ways to wear the vest! Over a simple, grey turtleneck, I turned the collar into a hood and belted it- I can totally see myself wearing this over leggings with my sneakers for an early morning walk along the Hudson with my pup!
​Ashley then flipped the whole vest upside down (brilliance!) which made the length shorter and shifted the location of the monogram to be on the collar. Swingy and super easy to pop on top of any outfit.
​Make sure you save the Chatham Thread Works website and keep your eyes peeled on their Instagram; their ONLINE SHOP is launching soon and you will be able to order your own gorgeous things directly from their website. With the holidays coming up, they have the absolute perfect monogram-able gifts for everyone on your list! Until then, if you are interested in ordering, give them a call and they will customize your piece with whatever monogram you choose (free of charge!) and ship it right to you!

Thank you for stopping by and I hope you are having a beautiful start to the fall!
