Vests and More Vests

Vests are a great transition piece going from winter to fall spring.  Well, if we EVER get spring around here!  Weather has still been very wintery here in Boston; and more snow in the forecast.



Meanwhile, I am digging in my wardrobe archives to find items that give me a glimmer of spring, without freezing to death.  I actually wore this vest twice last week.  A crime?  No, but something I usually don't do, but it kept me warm. 

What are your transitional pieces for winter to spring?

Oh, and hello to Patti and all my friends over at Not Dead Yet Style's Visible Monday!

  1. What a cool vest! I think I like it best with the blue dress, and surprisingly, I like the blue tights that match the dress. You can't have loud legs all the time, right?

    I think vests and cardis are great for transition, but I wear them year-round in the office to cope with hot flashes and the vagaries of HVAC. Layers, layers, layers!

  4. Hi, Paula. :)
    Pretty vest and it looks great in both stylings. I'm really loving the color/pattern of the vest mixed with the color/pattern of the skirt in second photo.

  7. Your vest is so versatile! I love it with both dresses. You look so cute and you are inspiring me to wear my spring dresses too. Althoug it is bitter cold and snowy outside.

  11. That vest deserves to be worn frequently! I love both outfits Paula; warm, comfortable and stylish. We had a blizzard this past weekend after 75 degree weather, so transition is my favorite word this week.

  12. I am mad for vests. I love yours here and the different ways you wear it. I also wore a bulky vest over my winter coat for extra toasty wonder.

  13. As always ... fine styling. You are a woman who gets thoughtful dressing.
    Yes, wear the best often! Wear, collect compliments, increase confidence, repeat!

  14. I bought a white fleece vest I've been wearing. It's casual, but I like it with pants.
