Puffy Vest

        

Vest (Gap); Shirt (Gap); Dress (Chill/NY); Leggings (Old Navy): Boots (Nine West); Earrings (Nordstrom); Bracelet (Loft)

Typically I reserve my puffy vest for casual events like football games, grocery shopping, or walking Rex.  I rarely think to pair it will something worn on a day I shower and put makeup on - but it works!  Adding this vest to my dress/shirt combo pulls it all together and creates some edge to this outfit... not to mention the functionality of adding some warmth when you don't need or want to wear a coat.  Gotta love a piece that can make the transition from dog park to happy hour!

I have a lime green puffer vest and as you'd imagine I don't wear it out of the house often (unless on a camping/hiking trip). I've always wanted a vest like yours to wear with sweaters and jeans.
