Winter Must Haves: Puffer Vests

It's week 2 of our Winter Must Haves collaboration and this week Ada and I are styling our puffer vests. I have several puffer vests and love them as an additional layer. On warmer winter days (remember I live in Wisconsin so that is above 32F), I wear my vest as outerwear. On cold days, they are perfect as another layer inside!

Ada layered her vest with a pink sweater and some fabulous jewelry. She always has great accessories. I really like how her fun pink flats accent her sweater, too. Her distressed jeans add the perfect amount of casualness. I would definitely wear an outfit like that on the weekends. Make sure you check out more on her outfit at Elegance and Mommyhood! Did you miss week 1? You can check that out here!

I've found my vests to be very versatile. For today, I layered my gingham under a paisley cardigan. The colors in cardigan tie the outfit together. The gingham is such a neutral color it goes with practically everything. So glad I scooped that up at Goodwill this summer! I like how the teal in my vest brings out the light teal/mint color in my cardigan. For those scared of pattern mixing, this is a great way to do so since the vest covers up a lot of it and tones it all down. How do you like to wear your puffer vests?

  1. You look DIVINE. Love the Colors of this Outfit. I love how we thought so much alike and both paired Jeans, Cardigans & Button-down Shirts with our Puffer Vests. Thanks so kindly about the great words too. I am loving our Collaboration so far and look forward to more weeks of this, together.


    Happy Hump Day!!




    P.S. My own post should be ready a little bit later.

  3. I've never been a vest person, but they are everywhere this season and there are some really cute options! I really like yours here. I saw a really cute one at Gap Outlet the other day, gray with really tiny white polka dots, but they didn't have my size!

  8. I love puffy vests and both of these looks are so cute! I like the mix of patterns in your outfit too - gingham and paisley. I could kick myself for not buying those Target booties! I have been eyeballing them and now they are out of stock. I will check ebay! Susan

  14. Thank you Brett! I really like the look of thinner vests. Sometimes the puffy ones add too much bulk. :)

  22. I can't promise anything, but I will certainly look for you! :) I live by a big city so there are way too many Targets by me...not to mention the one 1 mile away. I didn't realize how spoiled I am! ;)

  23. Well don't be too jealous! We might be able to wear puffer vests, but that means ice and snow, too! ;)
