Temperatures have started to cool down and it finally feels right to order hot drinks in the Starbucks drive thru. I I don’t know about you, but sunny and 60’s is my favorite time of year! I was out at my parent’s farm this past weekend and I noticed a few red leaves starting to fall – got me incredibly excited!
Last week I had a conference at work that went into the evenings, so when I got out of my suit I just wanted to curl up in my PJs with Designated Survivor (can’t wait for tomorrow-still on edge over the last 3 episodes…). This week I have some extra time on my weeknights so I’m catching up on errands. The perfect piece to wear outside? The J.Crew puffer vest. I think my favorite thing is that I can put my phone or keys into the pockets as I run into the grocery store or drop off my dry cleaning.
I’ve had numerous friends ask me what colors are new this year and which I recommend they purchase. I personally love the maroon. The black (which I’m wearing) and the navy are classic, but the maroon is a new fun touch. Here in Husker country, I swear everyone has red, white or herringbone! I tend to stay away from the trends and stick with pieces I can wear for longer seasons (also over my Cubbies shirts!).
I wanted to share multiple ways to style these vests, as I know you normally think of it with a sweater. Pairing with skirts or dresses works, too. How do you wear your vest?
