What I Wore This Week: Puffers and Plaid

This week’s outfits consisted of lots of pattern- particularly plaid. I’m also really gravitating toward my puffer vests for casual outfits. I thought I was done and over my puffer vests and probably would not wear them this year but I’ve been drawn to them, so I’ll keep wearing them. We had a mild to warm week with our highs in the 60s and 70s.

Saturday night– We went out to eat and to run errands. It was in the high 40s so I took advantage of the opportunity to wear this scarf with a sweater and a vest. I love this “half” blanket scarf- not nearly as bulky as a regular blanket scarf. I’m wearing my snakeskin booties with crop flare jeans- yes you can continue to wear crop jeans in the fall and winter.

Sunday- I wore this out to run errands. I’m loving the look of a puffer vest over a sweatshirt or tunic top with leggings and sneakers for an atheleisure look. I was inspired by Daily Style Finds. I’ll be repeating this formula all winter.

Monday– Bible study

I haven’t worn my boyfriend jeans much lately and I was looking for something comfy. I wore the sneakers on repeat too. Sometimes an item gets my attention and I won’t let it go.

Tuesday– Back to work. I wore the outfit from Monday’s 9 to 5 Style post and as I indicated I would, I added a blazer.

Friday work

Sometimes I get a little quirky and do something a little different, like wear suede “shooties” to work instead of heels. With the blazer and plaid pants, this has a little menswear vibe going on, but the eyelet top keeps it feminine.

Do you enjoy these posts? They seem to be drawing a lot of traffic, but not much else. I don’t want to sound like a negative Nancy but these post seem to take a lot of time to put together. I want to always provide inspiration for you, but I have to weigh time and effort with results. I’m thinking about scaling back to every other week but that would probably just take twice as long every other week. I don’t know yet where I’m going with this, but I’d love to have your feedback on how often you would like to see these post and if they are helpful. Share, pin and shop your favorite outfits.
