Striped Shirt + Puffer Vest

- Fashion, Outfits

striped shirt, old navy puffer vest

Yesterday I got to spend the day with my boyfriend’s family, and it was such a fun day with them (and full of delicious food)! Palm Sunday has always been a huge celebration for his family, and I feel so fortunate to have spent the day with them. I wish I would have been wearing some of my spring picks, but what can you do when it is 40 and windy on April 13th?!

This is my second basic piece from Front Row Shop (see my first review here) and I am still impressed. This shirt is a great basic, high quality, soft and warm, and has an amazing sheer detail on the top. I love when you can buy basics that have a unique detail like this. And even with the sheer top, it is still appropriate for work! I would pair it with a blazer and/or with red slacks for a nautical vibe. Stayed tuned, I’m sure this top will be making another appearance on the blog soon!

    You can’t go wrong with a classic stripe, and I bet the vest kept you super warm!

    You definitely prove that the puffer vest can look stylish, although I don’t think I can pull it off. Pretty jewellery as well. πŸ™‚

      Thank you! But you totally can pull it off! I always thought I would look horrible in one (like how do people look chic and not bulky?) It surprisingly isn’t too hard! I think for me, a heeled boot or bootie helps!

    That lip pencil was the first thing that stood out to me – it is soo pretty on you. I love those puffer vests, but I always feel a little boy-ish wearing them. This is a really good way to cutesy it up!

      April 17, 2014 at 2:00 PM

      Thank you darling! I was fortunate enough to try out the BITE pencils last fall and love this color the most! Also, I completely agree. This is the first puffer vest I have ever OWNED because I always felt it made me look too boyish or bulky. Thanks to so much inspiration from fellow bloggers, I was able to wear it a lot this winter and still feel stylish πŸ™‚ Also SO comfortable, now I want one in every color lol!

    Hi Rachel. It took me a while to find where to comment – so many comments wow!.

    You look so fun, casual yet sexy in this outfit. That is the most fun striped tee I’ve ever seen. The booties are divine and the red lipstick looks amazing on you. Great styling, babe. =)

      Thank you so much Ada! The red lip was to help with the fact that it was so cold out πŸ˜‰ Always makes me feel better! And isn’t this striped tee so fun?! Definitely my fave. I feel like I should probably go buy some other striped tees though too, especially for work!
