Happy Thursday, everyone. Today, I will show you my favorite way to wear a quilted vest.
On Tuesday in the Would You Wear It post, we discussed a particular puffer vest and the pros and cons of similar vests.
I was already planning to post about when I last wore this one, so I decided to keep that conversation going.
In our warmer climate, my Talbot’s quilted vest is perfect when the weather slightly changes…and it was also perfect for our summer cruise to Alaska.
So, today, let me discuss my favorite way to wear this quilted vest, and I even have a recipe for you.
Let’s get going……
MY FAVORITE WAY TO WEAR A QUILTED VEST: WITH A LITTLE WHIMSY
Since we do not wear coats as often as most, the quilted vest receives a lot of wear among many of my friends and neighbors.
The larger puffer vests are very attractive, but add weight to my curves and are just too heavy.
I preview the way a quilted vest fits for a more flattering to my figure look.
I like to wear my quilted vest with a touch of whimsy in a long sleeve tee…and almost all of those tees have come over the seasons from Talbots.
The peacock tee that I recently wore to a granddaughter’s birthday was last year’s Talbots.
There are quite a few of these on the market right now….and go to long sleeved tees at Talbots with this link:
Now, in Alaska, I did wear my quilted vest zipper up, with a solid long sleeve tee, and a scarf.
It was perfect.
Here are a few that would be perfect with a quilted vest…especially if your style adjectives say fun, joyful, approachable…..
Here are more fun quilted vests from Talbots.
MY FAVORITE WAY TO WEAR A QUILTED VEST: OUTSIDE
My granddaughter’s birthday was at a park outside and made the perfect setting for a fall party.
Outside is where I most like to wear a quilted vest.
I know some of you wear them inside, but so far, I wear them to outside events such as this…as long as it is not too cold….then it might warrant a sweater underneath rather than a tee.
I was asked to bring autumn donuts, but when I looked at my donut pan of only 6….I decided to go a direction that would provide for more people in less time for me.
First, I made three loaves of my PUMPKIN BREAD.
Always a favorite with all ages.
After I read what Ree said about the cake, I decided to try it. Let me tell you…this cake is delicious and super easy (no apple chopping).
I think these plates at the end of the party speak for themselves!
I also was able to make one that day and freeze it for later.
Super moist and yummy.
OK…we just went from quilted vest to cake. This was a fun event to break out my quilted vest to wear.
I think we covered the vest topic well this week, but if you have questions, then please let me know.
Talbots does have a FALL STOCK UP SALE ON RIGHT NOW.
Thank you for being here and I hope to see you tomorrow for more fashion fun……
