Shop the Look:
In harsh winter temps, layering up is key to staying warm. The challenge- how to stay warm and still be stylish! An outerwear vest is the perfect piece to style a casual winter look with.
My new found love is puffer vests. I never used to like them, as they are so bulky and don't fit so well under a coat. I always felt like a puffer fish wearing one! This year they are super popular, and you can find them in every color and print you can imagine.
I was looking for one in silver or gray, and didn't have much luck. I guess I was in good graces with Santy Claus this year- he brought me exactly what I was looking for. The vests are so fun for casual wear, or you can even dress one up by pairing with a pencil skirt.
And the booties...ah velvet and suede ones are all the rage this winter! Burgundy boots have been on my radar for a long time. I was dancing a happy dance when I found these last October, on a visit home to Vancouver BC.
This outfit is great also for a casual Valentine look. It's great to try something different and break away from traditional holiday colors. Red is the color for the season of love, but not a color that I wear well. Are you planning a special outfit(s) for Valenites? Would love to hear in the comments.
Off I go now to play in the white stuff , since we are all snowed in and sooo sad we can't make it to work, ha! Thanks for stopping by my little corner of the internet, I hope you come back soon. I have an exciting project coming up I can't wait to share!
