Thank you to GAP and ShopStyle Collective for sponsoring this post.
You know what I love? I just really love a good vest. It’s the layer that does it for me. When I need a touch more warmth or a little “something else” to complete my outfit, the answer is usually a vest. Being that it is officially layering season, your wardrobe isn’t complete without this staple item. GAP’s 100% Recycled Nylon Lightweight Puffer Vest is a layer I wear to everything from Sunday dinner with the family to runs on the trail. I do wash it in between in case you were wondering/cringing. And yes, it is machine washable, but back to the versatility of this piece. The “true black” color pictured below has a slightly lacquered (shiny) finish so it gives a little pop when worn with jeans and sweater and a little spice when worn with workout clothes. Let me demonstrate exactly what I mean with the two ways I styled it below.
Oh, but first, it is important to note that GAP’s Friends & Family Sale is here which means you can save 40% off your purchase with code FRIEND. Gap Good Rewards Members can receive and additional 10% off when shopping with code FAMILY.
Look 1: Casual yet Festive
Who would want to completely cover a gorgeous fair isle sweater with a coat? I think we all agree the sweater needs to be seen and a vest is the perfect option to wear over top. I paired it with the Sky High Vintage Slim Jeans and black booties and I’m ready for….. Thanksgiving, lunch with friends, Friday Night Lights…. ok that is the extent of my social life, but you get the point.
Look 2: Sporty and Spicy
I run cold… well to clarify, I do run IN the cold, but what I’m saying is that I am ALWAYS cold so an extra layer to keep my core warm (and a deep zippered pocket to stash my phone) is always appreciated during outdoor walks and runs. I love how this vest gives an element of fashion to my typical mom-on-the-go outfits.
