DRESSING UP A CASUAL PUFFER VEST

It was a gorgeous day in the 60s Fahrenheit when I wore this outfit, but it has since zoomed back into the high 70s. Can’t believe it, when it’s only five days until Christmas. I’ve been so eager to wear this new puffer vest. I’m grateful I at least had one day in it. More cold weather, please!

I usually wear a puffer vest with jeans, but this time I wanted a refined casual look (my husband and I went to Waterside Shops for lunch), so I opted for black pants and booties instead. I’ve recently ordered a pair of black lower-heel booties–much easier to walk in–but these higher-heel ones work well when I’m walking only a short distance.

It’s not easy to see in these photographs, but I purposely wrinkled my shirt. It’s 100 percent cotton, and I like having the option of being able to wear it for both dressier looks (ironed) or, as here, in a slouchy/comfy way. I can’t say it’s my idea; it’s being shown like this in the store and on line, and I think it’s so fun.

If you’re interested, all my bracelets are available, and I’ve listed the links at the bottom of this page. My  bag is available, too–in several colors, and in nylon or leather. It can be adjusted to handbag length (12.25″) or crossbody length (24.25″) and a variety lengths in between. It’s so convenient and light weight.

Also, this vest comes in five colors, but I have to say I absolutely love this periwinkle. Something else I really like is that it has five-inch zippers on both sides, so you can loosen it around your hips, if you want. Everything I’m wearing is linked at the bottom of this page, including my makeup.

I hope you’re having a peaceful holiday week, wherever you are.

Thank you so much for taking the time to visit my blog and read this post.

  1. Hi Janis, you are right the periwinkle is lovely. I have to smile when I see ankle pant…when I was a teen in high school we called them “high water pant” and no self respecting teen would be caught dead in a pair.LOL. Thank goodness my mother instilled in me to develop my own personal style that accommodates my body type. Your makeup looks fabulous and your lashes really pop. As always I enjoy your videos and thanks for sharing. Happy Holidays

    • Hi, Geraldine! Oh my gosh, you bring back memories for me, too! I would have been ceaselessly teased for wearing “flood pants”. You’re so right. It IS important to follow our own hearts hen it comes to personal style. 🙂 (-: Thank you for taking the time to visit my blog and leave your kind comment! Cheers and happy holidays to you if you celebrate them. ~ Janis

    • Dear Bernadine, thank you for taking the time to watch my video and visit me here at my blog. I so appreciate it! Your comment absolutely touched my heart. I’m so happy you are finding inspiration for your own outfits by visiting my blog and channel. I do the very same thing. I am always exploring the internet and Instagram for fashion/outfit ideas. It’s so much fun. We all can learn from each other.
      As for the hand lotion I use: most of the time I use a combination of organic shea butter and organic virgin coconut oil, which I mix together in the palm of my hand. Here’s the shea butter I use: http://amzn.to/2BfJV0x
      When the weather is really dry, like in the winter here, I use Dr. Bronner’s Organic Lavender Coconut Lotion. Here’s a link if you’d like to see more: http://amzn.to/2Bh2rWi
      Wishing you and your family a Blessed Christmas and Happy 2018, too. Thank you again! ~ Janis

  3. Hello Janis ! Just catching up on videos tonight. I love your clothing choices and picks. The vest is the prettiest shade of happiness on you! With your slender tall build everything you wear really looks great on you!! I love periwinkle as well, color of your purse, all the jewelry too. Your jewelry is super nice and so glad you posted your necklace in the video. I was admiring it the entire time you were speaking.

    Thanks for sharing your videos. I enjoy your calm and classy advice!
    Happy New Year
