Ever since I could remember I have always bought things I loved in multiples, like one in every color type of gal. My mom obviously knows this as well because when she saw me loving my red plaid vest (worn this post) she knew she had to buy me the blue one as a Christmas gift. After seeing these puffer vests worn by everyone every year I never realized how I much I would love them for myself, but then again who doesn’t love a good plaid piece. This exact puffer vest is more on the high price side but its something that sticks around year after year and worth the investment. I think it could be a perfect transition into spring piece as well since its not heavy weight and great to layer. I’m a big fan of pops of color within an outfit so I decided to make this plaid vest and gold ankle boots the statement pieces, therefore I went all black (gold) elsewhere. If I’m not doing a matchy-matchy color scheme, it’s most likely a look with a pop of print or color. If you cannot fit one of these vests in your budget, try searching for one on sites like Poshmark, where you can get a similar option for less. That route always works for me because so many people sell exact or similar options, and in sometimes perfect condition, so I make sure to keep my options open when shopping. Another thing I do if I really want something that is a bit too expensive for my ramen noodle budget is to get rid of (sell on apps like Poshmark, etc.) pieces to replace what I want. Out with the old, in with the new right? Speaking of…how is everyone doing with their new yearly goals, was one of them to work on a closet refresh? If so, let me know if I could help you in any way or if you would love to see more of that on the blog discussing making extra cash to sell those pieces from your closet purge! I got you boo!
