Happy Monday everyone! I hope you all had a wonderful weekend!
Every year around this time, I walk into J.Crew and gawk at their beautifully colored puffer vests. One year I said, “Puffer vests are cute, but so impractical.” The next year I said, ” Hm. I really like the color of these vests. I kind of want one, but I’ll just wait till they go on sale.” They never went on sale. And the pattern went on for about 2 more years until this year, when I gave in, ” Now it comes in CHARTREUSE?! (one of my favorite colors) OK. Fine J.Crew. I’ll give into your magical-hue colored vests I will NEVER WEAR, because I live in 80 degree weather.” And I bought one. All 3 times it has dipped down to the 50s here I have worn it and not regretted my purchase. They are really not as warm as I thought, so they go perfectly with a sweater for a Miami winter. Or if you live in cooler weather, they layer perfectly with coats, and sweaters over button-downs (one of my favorite ways to wear it). Have I mentioned the colors they come in are wondrous? If you don’t want to invest in a J.Crew one, they also have more affordable ones in Old Navy (under $25!). (I may or may not have purchased one of those on-sale in red.)
