It’s hard to believe its already mid-November. Thanksgiving is right around the corner and it feels like winter is coming faster than we know it. The temperature has finally cooled down after a warm October and we are in the perfect climate for fun fall looks! Puffer vests are one of my go-to fall staples they’re the perfect bridge between being too chilly without a coat and too warm with one.
Our vests kept us perfectly cozy on our walk through the woods. The leaves were so pretty we got up early to see them before heading out on a long day of adventures. Abby was a real champ posing for all these pictures. Sometimes getting the right shot can be tricky but she made it fun and was very patient! I think I may have actually convinced her to start blogging herself…maybe.
For those of you who don’t know, Abby is my roommate. She’s a ray of sunshine. Seriously the sweetest person I know. I am so lucky that she puts up with all my craziness and still chooses to be friends with me day in and day out. I really don’t know what I would do without her.
One thing Abby and I have in common is out love of preppy styles and fun fall looks. This comes in handy because I have an extra closet to look though. Most of the vests I own are from J.Crew and J.Crew Factory. I love them because they aren’t bulky but still keep you nice and warm. Plus, J.Crew Factory always has the best deals so you don’t have to feel like you’re emptying your wallet. Abby’s navy vest is from J.Crew and mine is actually from T.J.Maxx. I love the red stripes because they give it a fun preppy feel.
I love mixing patterns and colors with vests, like here with stripes and solids. I also like to play around with different shirts and sweaters. Another favorite vest of mine that’s not pictured here is my herringbone print vest from J.Crew, I bought it first a few years ago and wore it all the time until I lost it. I was so bummed when I couldn’t find it, so I was especially glad when I found it on sale at J.Crew Factory.
So many brands are having great sales for the holiday season, most of the items linked above are currently on sale so go check them out! J.Crew, J.Crew Factory and Nordstrom in particular always have the best sales. I rarely pay full price for their clothes which is good because I’m a broke college student.
If you guys have any suggestions about good places to find vests, feel free to comment below! I’m always looking for new places to shop (it’s dangerous).
