refined puffy vest

vest: forever 21 // shirt: joe fresh // jeans: gap // boots: aldo (older) // watch: michael kors // bracelet: forever 21 // belt: gap // bag: roots 

If you had told the younger version of me that her 25 year old self would be wearing a puffy vest she would have thought you were crazy. The puffy vest seems to keep coming back every year in massive quantities and for some reason I've never been a fan (fun fact: I've also never been a fan of FLEECE either, I can't even touch it haha). All that changed when I saw a longer version at Forever 21. Suddenly, the longer version felt much more like me and much more "refined". It's also super warm and allowed me to walk around with just this! Sounds silly but for anyone who lives out west knows that it is quite the luxury with all the FREEZING temperatures we've been having.

I'm just so excited for the weekend to start. I'm escaping small town life for another small town but with a big difference... mountains! I'm off to the Jasper Park Lodge for the boyfriend's Christmas party and spending the night. I'm so excited to dress up and be surrounded by beautiful mountains!

Have a great weekend and I'll see you here on Monday!


  1. This is a great vest, such a perfect layering piece!! Have an amazing time in Jasper, I am super duper jealous!

  2. Oooh I love this! I think because it's longer in length it looks more sophisticated!

  3. Beautiful vest! These pictures are gorgeous, I love the snow! I'm happy I discovered your blog and IG, love your style :)

  4. No way, I can't believe that vest is for Forever 21! It looks super chic and really warm. Then again, it probably looks warm because you're wearing it outside in the snow.

    I'm sure you've had a blast this weekend :)

  5. You're totally right - that's just about the most chic I've ever seen a puffy vest manage to be. Great find! xx

  6. Wow, you are the vest queen! I have to say that I love this one even more than your fur vest-- it looks soooooooo warm!

    Xo, Hannah
