PACIBE Round Neck Lightweight Long Vest, size XS | Free Assembly High-Rise Jeggings in dark tint wash #91, size 0 Short (review here) | Celine Pico Belt Bag | c/o Amazon The Drop Women’s Ibita Ankle Boot (runs large, I went down a full size, see the cognac color here)
I shared this outfit in my latest IG Reels last night (click here if you don’t have Instagram) and I received a few questions about this long puffer vest so I figured I’d write a quick review. The vest is a thin and lightweight which makes it perfect to layer underneath my other long jackets. I also got another vest for my mom when it was 25% off for Cyber Monday.
The measurements of the long black vest taken from size XS are 36 inch chest, 38 inch hips, 34 inches total length. It’s a looser fit so you can layer comfortably underneath. I love the big patch front pockets in case I don’t want to carry a purse. There’s a 10 inch slit on both sides for ease of movement and it’s 40 inches around when measured at the top/start of the side slits.
Update 11/28: If you prefer long sleeves this thin packable puffer jacket is another good option and I got the women’s version for my mom and the men’s version for my dad when they were 45% off for Cyber Monday.
My beloved J.Crew Chateau parka (in size 00 regular) is admittedly snug through the upper arms now that I’m 115 pounds but hopefully I’ll get back into better shape. The heather acorn color is so pretty (last featured on the blog here).
I reviewed this long puffer coat on my blog last year with measurements here. The above photo is from last year when my hair was shorter. Update 11/28: I ended up getting this coat for my mom for Cyber Monday since it was 30% off.
I also layered the long vest under this light rain jacket when it was warmer a few weeks ago (it was in the mid 70’s in the fall which was unseasonably warm for New England). I still need to list the 2021 version of the BLOCKTECH coat on Poshmark (review here). I got this year’s version since I prefer the slits for ease of movement. Size XXS is the only size left in this jacket for all 3 colors online. This year’s version is looser throughout compared to last year’s version.
Thanks for stopping by!
