Here is the scenario. You’re headed to a casual dinner and it’s blistering cold outside and you know that you need a huge puffer to survive. The only kicker is that when you get to dinner it will be warm inside so you don’t want to have a ton of layers on. Maybe it’s a semi-casual dinner at a brick-oven type joint complete with fireplaces and coziness. Can you picture it? I don’t know about you but I’ve decided I’m fairly high maintenance when it comes to weather. I don’t want to freeze and I don’t want to sweat. Is that too much to ask? Also, while we are at it I would love a layer or two to conceal my food baby when I’m headed out to dinner. And I definitely don’t want to look like a marshmellow or have to wear a bulky sweater while I’m reaching over the table.
The solution? Your favorite tee or blouse paired with a long vest like this or this. If you hurry the tee I’m wearing in these photos is currently on sale for $12. Another place to scoop of tees that I love is Loft who is having a 60% off sale making this tee only $15!
Sadly this vest is sold out but this one is similar! It has a hood but I kind of love it. This cardigan has the same look but with sleeves and this cardigan is the same, comes in black and is 40% off!
