In an effort to wear more of my winter items in the wintertime (my fellow San Franciscans will understand the lack of cold weather necessitating thick outerwear), I’ve been trying to find creative ways to pair items in my closet. The early morning hours are usually when it’s coolest and requires outerwear. Adding a simple belt draws away from the weekend/casual feel of my puffer vest and makes it conform well with an office-appropriate outfit. Any styling tricks you utilize to transform the feel of an outfit?

The vest is an article of clothing that is on heavy rotation for me during this time of year. The weather tends to be fairly mild around here but still cool enough to necessitate having a piece of outerwear. This vest does just the job – it’s lightweight and doesn’t add bulk but also, keeps me extra warm. The fur lining at the neckline is just the right amount of soft and the hood is great for putting on when it starts sprinkling outside. Want one of your own? Today, The Mint Julep Boutique, is giving one of my lucky readers (maybe it’s you!) a $25 gift card to their boutique – just enter below!
