Happy weekend!  We’ve been having a blast in the Rocky Mountains this week, it’s been filled with fresh air, snow, and lots of relaxation!  I’ve had a light week blogging, which actually feels really nice after putting out 4-6 blog posts a week during the Christmas rush.  I’ve needed this down time to recharge my batteries and it’s worked!  I didn’t pack all that many wardrobe items for our trip, but I stayed warm and had lots of cute outfits to wear thanks to these amazing puffer vests I found.

There are lots of colors available but you just can’t ever go wrong with black or red right?  Bringing these 2 vests gave me lots of great looks to switch up while still looking cute and warm.

I wouldn’t say puffer vests are all that slimming, but some definitely flatter more than others and mine is definitely one of those.  Some puffer vests are so thick that I look huge.  I managed to find these affordable vests that are more slimming than your typical ones, they fees thin and lightweight, but yet they’re still extremely warm.  It was so cold up in Estes Park but most of the time I was fine in a sweater and my puffer vest – and these are all under $40.

My puffer vest is so easy to pack too, plus it comes with a matching storage bag so you can just throw it into a bag and pull it out if you suddenly need it.  I have a quilted Burberry vest too, and I can honestly say I like this one better, it’s warmer and a fraction of the price!

The boots were an amazing last minute find from Nordstrom.  They kept my feet toasty warm and dry in the snow!  I think I’ll get lots of wear out of these boots, even back home where we hardly ever get snow!  I’ll need to hide them from Haley though… she’s known to borrow my boots and never give them back.   Be sure to check my Instagram to see more Estes Park behind the scenes photos.  Have a great weekend!
