Casual Cool Fall Style: Old Navy Quilted Vest


Exact vest / Black skinny jeans / similar leopard flats (here, here & here) / similar knit sweaters / similar tanks / similar sunnies




Since my little girl started school in September my personal style has been evolving to a little bit more ‘sporty chic’ and less glam.  By sporty chic I don’t mean I’m walking around in oversized football jersey’s and high-top kicks, I’m more referring to sporty pieces such as sneakers, causal jackets, puffer vests or plain cotton tunics.  I’m not sure if this is because I need to be more comfy with the drop-off and picks ups twice a day or I’m just becoming more partial to sporty looks, it’s probably a combination of both.  Some of the things I’ve added to my wardrobe is my first pair of classic all-white Converse, this pair of leopard sneakers above, more casual tunics and this quilted fleece lined vest I’m wearing in this post.  This vest is another item from Old Navy, you can get it for under $25 and they have a variety of colours to choose from.  I wore this out for a day of running errands and not only did I like the look I also loved the convenience of being warm without wearing or feeling constrained by a heavy jacket.  In fact I liked it so much that I’m thinking of investing in a quality one such as a Canada Goose. I’m not sure I will take the plunge just yet since those are quite expensive.  Although living in a climate with very cold long winters definitely requires investments for quality winter gear so that is the one thing that might sway me at some point to get one.  I also just bought my first pair of Sorel winter boots at DSW (which finally opened in Canada, yay!!) and I may regret saying this but I’m kind of excited for some snow so I can wear them.

Puffer/quilted vests come in many styles, here are a few of my picks:


1. Gap  / 2. Canada Goose / 3. SheIn / 4. Forever 21  / 5. LOFT  / 6. INC / 7. Zara

    Puffer vests are so great because you have the warmth without the bulk. I love this monochromatic sporty chic look, and the touch of leopard is perfect!

    Vests come in so handy in the fall. Love this all black ensemble. Definitely sporty chic. The leopard print slip-ons add that extra flair. Enjoy the rest of the week, Marta!

    I have to drop my kids off every morning and afternoon, too and I love to wear puffer vests instead of a full jacket. I also have my leopard slip ons on today, too! 🙂 I would def. wear this and you look great!

    Hello Marta! I must confess that I love wearing puff vests but living here in FL doesn’t allow me to manifest such love affair. I only get to wear heavy winter gear when I travel and only the few times when temperatures drop below 45. Love the sporty-chic look you are rocking today and you look beautiful wearing all black. You beautiful spirit lighten up the color. Always thinking about you and your family Marta. God bless you always. Have a wonderful week my friend. XOXO, Jeannette

    I too am a huge fan of puffer vests. Jackets are too constricting, especially when driving. I love your black one, just simple!!
