Cobalt & Herringbone: A Dressed-up Puffer Vest

Well hello there, cobalt! I’ve been in love with this vest ever since I took it out of storage (seriously, I need to buy another color!) and I’ve been looking for creative ways to wear it. I only ever pair it with casual looks, so that just had to change, of course. While this look may not be fancy it definitely fits into my “dressed-up casual” category.

The blouse makes this look so much more put together in my opinion (in spanish, I’d say “pulido” but there’s no great word in English). Not only does the texture create a striking contrast, but the color does too. I also think emerald green, hot pink and red would look fab under this herringbone vest. Or gingham, buffalo check, plaid… I mean, the vest generates endless possibilities! I topped the look off with these booties. Partly because my OTK boots were too casual, and partly because I have no other fitting booties at the moment (can’t wait for Black Friday!).

So, what should my next herringbone vest combo be? Plaid, stripes… oh the possibilities! :) Thanks for reading, as always,


Pues hola, azul cobalto! He tenido muchas ganas de utilizar este chaleco casi cada día desde que lo saqué del depósito. Obviamente, necesito comprarlo de otro color jaja. Pues, he tratado de utilizarlo de manera diferente cada vez que lo llevo, pero siempre es muy informal. Mientras que este look no es fancy, tampoco es informal y según yo, está calificad para estar en mi categoría “dressed-up casual.” 

La blusa crea un contraste contra el chaleco no sólo por su material sino el color también. Es súper pulido, no? También creo que el verde esmeralda, rosado y rojo vivo serían buenas combinaciones contra el espinapez. O guinga, tartán y cuadros…. las posibilidades son infinitas. Y terminé el look con tacones poque mis botas OTK son demasiado informales y no tengo botitas de tobillo (estoy esperando las rebajas de Viernes Negro).

¿Qué combinación debo llevar la próxima vez que llevo el chaleco? Tengo muchas ideas :) ¡Gracias por leer!
