My Go-To Winter Outfit for Shopping

 We had our first bitter cold day in Wisconsin a few weeks ago, and I was able to break out my puffer vest and over-the-knee boots for a day of shopping.  I wore these boots all day, and they were so comfortable and warm!  I love them!

My favorite item to wear when shopping is a puffer vest.  It is just perfect for running from a car to a building.   I also don't get too over-heated inside a store wearing a puffer vest verses a winter coat.


I wore a off-white sweater underneath the vest (I bought it last year, but it's still available at JCPenney), and accessorized with a blanket scarf and hat.  I love that it's winter and I can wear all my knitwear again.  I don't have to worry if I'm having a bad hair day;  I just pop on a beanie and go!


I picked up the puffer vest last year at Old Navy...and they still have them!  You can sometimes pick one up for $15.00 on sale.


My embroidered jeans are new this year from JCPenney.  The OTK boots are also new, they are from AGACI.  I purchased them in-store.  They are not available on-line.  I carried a burgundy bag to compliment the burgundy vest.






And, because so many of you love to see how I wore items in previous ways, here is that same off-white sweater styled with brown jeans and a brocade scarf.

And here are two other ways I wore my puffer vest.

  3. This vest is such a pretty fall color and it really compliments the colors in that scarf well! I just got some OTK boots, I am excited to wear them this weekend. I really like the outfit with the vest again and the graphic sweatshirt!

  4. Ok, I need to go get that vest at Old Navy. I tried it on early in November but didn't buy it...was waiting til payday. Love how you have styled it. And you are right, puffer vests are perfect for dashing in and out of buildings and between stores.

  7. Love the colours in this outfit, with the burgundy bag and vest and tartan scarf! :) It's nice to see the different ways you've reworn the pieces too :)

    Hope you are having a lovely weekend! We've put our Christmas tree up and gone to a few Christmas events this weekend. So far, it's been a good one and the predicted wild weather hasn't hit yet which is nice!
