Happy Tuesday and welcome to the February edition of our Ageless Style link up of 2019, where the first Tuesday of every month ten over 40 bloggers present a different style theme and show a myriad of ways to wear it, all the while proving you can still be fashionable and on trend over 40 and beyond.
This month Jodie is the brains behind our prompt of puffer vests. Truth be told, a puffer vest is one of my favorite winter accessories. Truth also be told, I think we might all be starting to have a little spring fever and it feels funny to be talking about cold weather outerwear.
Having said that, it’s also true that a puffer vest is the perfect transition piece. I mean seriously, it’s not a coat, but warmer than a sweater. I’ve told y’all before that I rarely have the opportunity or need for a coat where I live, but I do wear vests A LOT. Case in point, this post from last week.
I think this red one was my first one. Vests are really great when the temps may have a big swing. You can stay warm but won’t get too terribly hot when they rise.
This white one was a gift and I adore it. I was initially worried I’d have a hard time keeping it clean, but honestly, it hasn’t been a problem. This is an Old Navy puffer vest and they have some version of it every year. You know what that means? That means they stand the test of time. Adding a monogram like on this one really takes it up a notch.
This is a Loft vest. Slightly less puffy than the Old Navy version, but still warm.
I wish I had a close up of this vest. It’s a beautiful plum color but that’s not what makes it special. It’s really thin and you can roll it up into a little bag.
Mine is from Costco a few years ago, but Uniqlo carries one very similar and currently on sale for $10 off and free shipping through tomorrow. It comes in 13 colors and 3 of them are even $20 off. [show_shopthepost_widget id=”3465264″]
So let’s recap: 1. Great weight 2. Available in 13 colors. 3. Very packable and easy to carry when you are out and get to warm 4. $10 (maybe $20) off and free shipping through tomorrow.
My black vest gets called into action most frequently. I bought it at the Banana Republic Factory store a few years ago (are seeing a trend?). It has a removable fur trimmed hood (which is so cute), but I keep it off. They have the same vest in one color left this season in a medium here.
So I hope I’ve convinced you that if you don’t already have a vest or two in your closet, you should change that…soon. ?
Every month we invite a blogger friend to join us as a co-host and Lana from My New Happy agreed to join us for February.
Lana is an empty nester just like me. We are both finding our way in the next stage of our lives and doing a pretty darn good job if I do say so myself. You can find Lana’s blog here and her social media links below.
