Styling A Quilted Vest

Styling A Quilted Vest: Styling a vest from my latest Stitch Fix in this weeks What I Wore linkup |theprimarilyinspired.com|
A few nights ago I was so excited to see that my lovely Stitch Fix box had arrived for December and I could’t wait to see what my stylist had found for me! Inside was yet another vest that I’ve had my little eyes on for a while and couldn’t wait to explore all the different ways I could play with it. This olive green isn’t necessarily my go-to color, but I fell in love with this darker shade, which is great for fall/winter and I’ve found it to be quite versatile. I always ask for lightweight layering pieces and my stylist has a way of finding just the right outerwear for me.
Here’s one way I wore my green quilted vest this week…

What I love most about my vest is that it’s lightweight, which means it’s perfect for those crisp mornings and can easily be worn throughout the day or even taken off. Here in Cali our daytime temperatures only reach about 70-75 degrees so it’s been great getting to play with different ways to style my look.

Styling with Stitch Fix #3

It sure has been a while since I’ve been able to post! However it was for a good reason and that is the husband and I traveled to Vail, Colorado for a friend’s wedding. It was a beautiful ceremony and I loved getting to see all of our friends from back home. Nothing like getting to spend the weekend with your favorite people! Also, I’ve never been to Colorado before and I have to say that Colorado in December is absolutely beautiful…especially when you’re spending the weekend in Vail of all places. While we were there I told myself to soak in the winter as much as possible since this will be the only snow I’ll see this season. However, as much as I loved the cold, snowy mountainous backdrop, I have to say I’m happy to be back home in sunny California.

While I was out of town it seems as though the lovely Stitch Fix fairy dropped off a package for me! This fix was full of great outerwear and a few items I would never have picked out for myself – but in a good way! I love staying in touch with my stylist after every fix because our communication gets better and better. Last time I mentioned I needed more lightweight pieces that have the option to be layered and did she deliver!

Market & Spruce Quilted Vest – KEEP

I was excited to find yet another quilted vest in my fix this time around considering I fell in love with my 41Hawthorne herringbone one from my first fix (see below). I’m also guilty for sticking to certain color palates and this olive green vest was not only perfect for fall, but it expanded my closet to include other colors. Again, it’s lightweight and perfect for throwing over a simple top and paired with a good skinny jean.

Market & Spruce V-Neck Dolman Top – RETURN

The first top I found in my box was the Market & Spruce v-neck top. I’m loving the deep maroon color, but unfortunately I’m not loving the fit or cut of the top on the whole. I’m a bit top heavy (D-cups, anyone?!) and the v-neck I found to be no so flattering for my shape. However with that said, the material was soft and I love the color for the season. Perhaps I’d love the top more if it were a crew neck and not so fitted around the waist.

Collective Concepts Chevron Pocket Blouse – RETURN

I love chevron and was excited to see this blouse in my box this month – I can’t count the number of chevron tops or dresses I’ve pinned lately. It’s an adorable top but for me it fit a bit snug through the bust and shoulders. It also felt snug around my waistline (you can see the pulling in the photo). The material didn’t allow for much movement and due to my larger bust size I run into the button down blouse issue of buttons not staying buttoned problem. The neckline of this blouse was great and a detail I really liked, so I was a bit sad to have to return this one.

Reneé C Open Cardigan – KEEP

Open cardigans are my favorite these days as the draping in the front accentuates my curves, hides what I don’t want showing (perfect ‘fat day’ top!), and the fit throughout the rest is perfect. The material is lightweight which is what I look for in anything I wear and I love that it can be the perfect casual touch to really any outfit. I love investing in pieces like this open cardigan because I know I won’t have a problem wearing it with other items or just casually around the house. Definitely a keeper and a style I’d love to receive again in future fixes.

Look By M Alpine Plaid Wrap Scarf – RETURN (sadly)

Lastly, I fell in love with this plaid scarf that found itself tucked away in my box. The only issue for me was that the material was too chunky and thick, which made it too hot to wear. If only I lived in NorCal where the temps can drop! Unfortunately I’ll have to send this item back but I’m very sad to do so! I’m loving the pattern and colors and only if it were of lighter weight I could contemplate keeping it. However, it’ll make someone who lives where there’s an actual winter season very happy.

curious about getting your own fixes?

Stitch Fix has been an amazing service where I am able to try on five different handpicked pieces by a professional stylist from the privacy and convenience of my very own home. I have been working with the same stylist, Whitney, since the beginning and I feel as though I’ve really been able to develop a rapport with her over time. In your fixes you’ll receive your five pieces, a return envelope, a note from your stylist, and a styling card for inspiration on how to put your pieces together when trying them on. Once you’ve decided what you’re keeping or returning, simply place the items you’re sending back in the pre-paid shipping envelope and drop it off at your local post office. That’s it!
