A few years back, Caitlin, from Southern Curls and Pearls, wrote a post featuring the J.Crew puffer vest. It was love at first sight! I immediately headed over to J.Crew to purchase the vest and to my horror, it was sold out!
Fast forward a few months later, I am shopping at J.Crew and they have the puffer vest in store! It wasn’t the white one I had been eyeing, but the bright pink was fun and caught my eye. Also, it was on sale, so I knew it was meant to be. I wore that vest all winter long. As a result, the vest became an essential part of my wardrobe and now I add a new color every year. This orange version of the vest, aptly named Heather Tigerlily is the perfect addition to my fall wardrobe. The orange color is rich and the perfect tone for fall.

The design is stylish, the material smooth like butter. Side pockets help keep my hands warm and the front button pockets are great for holding essentials such as my iPhone, lipgloss and keys. I wear this J.Crew puffer vest to work, out to dinner on the weekends and as a layer when I walk Bruges. Layer it over a long-sleeve shirt like this one or a short-sleeve tee. The vest also looks great over a fitted turtleneck. Pair it with jeans, fitted pants or throw it on over a dress. The options are endless!
For comparison, I own a Patagonia vest as well, and although I love it, the J.Crew vest is my absolute favorite. This is why I buy one in a different color every year. I am now the proud owner of all of these:
A question I get often is: How do you afford J.Crew? Answer: I usually wait for items to go on sale, which in the past, meant waiting until the pickings were slim to none. However, J.Crew now constantly has sales. If you sign-up for their emails, you receive sales info in your inbox on the daily. I will admit, that’s a lot of emails, but it’s worth it, because I always manage to get a discount on my purchase. Also, teachers and students get 15% off their purchase in store by showing a pay stub or ID card. How great is that?! Thanks for the appreciation, J.Crew!
The J.Crew puffer vest is 25% off through October 4th with the code WEARNOW. That means you can get it for under $100! Which color is your favorite? Let me know in the comments below!
