Today we are talking about stay-at-home style with four stylish over-fifty bloggers. In my case, I am showing versatile puffer vests as there is no heat in my office (in our 100-year-old SF apartment building with radiators) so I love the extra layer. I also like to wear a puffer (down-filled) vest while walking Chief on the hills here as I can layer up or down.
If you live in a colder climate, a down vest may work for you with even more layers. When I think of a colder climate, I am reminded of when we lived in New York as newlyweds. Fun, but I thought it was freezing for this California girl. Then, we moved to Chicago! That wind off of the lake. Oh, man! But as I told a virtual client from Chicago…the nicest people live there and I always told Howard that I would be open to moving back. I’m digressing…
Let me show you how I wear puffer vests (basically all year round in San Francisco)! And also follow the links at the end of the post for stay at home wear inspiration from my friends.
How to Layer Puffer Vests
Black Puffer Vest
Mine is a few years old but here are some similar ones…
Vintage Soft Classic Hoodie Sweatshirt
My sweatshirt (above) from last year is super cozy and not too expensive from the Gap. This year it comes in black instead of dark grey and in other colors. I am thinking about getting it in dusty pink with the sweat pants or heather grey…how cozy is that? My daughter bought the set in oatmeal heather.
Soft Flattering Leggings From Athleta
These are my favorite workout leggings as they hold in my stomach and have a deep pocket to stash a credit card or a few bills or your telephone. They are the first ones I pull out of my drawer if they are clean. Comes in tall, medium, and petite. I got the petite medium.
Running Shoes That Give You That Extra Pep
Howard gave me new running shoes for Christmas which is so thoughtful as I feel like they are a bit of a splurge…actually the ones he got me were even more expensive, but I returned them for these as I like them better.
Metallic Puffer Vest
This is a fun, new twist on a down vest. It’s metallic velvet by Athletic and I like how it covers my rear. This is an extra small since I’m short. Chief couldn’t care less about puffer vests!
I’m wearing it with another soft favorite, a luxe soft lightweight sweatshirt that has pull-down sleeves with thumb holes in case your hands get cold.
And those are the versatile puffer vests that I wear all the time! Check out this little slideshow that I made for Pinterest…
I can’t wait to see what these ladies recommend…
