Puffer vests and plaid.
Does it get any better? I think not.
Around these parts it’s cooled off, but it’s not so cold that a coat is required. Call in the puffer vest. I have a couple of vests and I adore them. Paired with plaid, be it in the form of a shirt or a scarf the combo is perfection. You can’t throw a rock these days without hitting someone wearing either a plaid flannel or a blanket scarf.
This flannel is from last year at Old Navy but there’s one very similar this year and right now it’s on sale for $13. WHAT? Yes, $13…order one NOW.
My vest is also from a couple of years ago, but J. Crew has a really cute red one that is the perfect answer and YES, it’s on sale too!
So let’s talk jeans. These are actually jeggings and they are so great with tall boots as long as you are wearing a longer shirt to cover your backside. They are stretchy, but don’t get baggy and the legs are tight enough that they go into your boots easily. Love that!
Last but certainly not least we’ve got to discuss my love for these Frye riding boots (in cognac). I’m not even kidding when I tell you I looked at these boots for the last 5 years and kept thinking if I knew I’d wear them enough I’d invest in them. I finally bit the bullet and ordered them and haven’t been sorry for a single second. The leather is so soft and smooth. They are actually buttery and the leather smell is to die for. They are currently on sale and if you want a really nice Christmas present, then you need to leave these open on your computer screen and maybe your man will take the hint, be the hero and order them. These boots are timeless and while a little pricey, you’ll wear them forever.
In case you’re keeping track, my kids get home a week from today.??
