Buffalo Plaid Vest and Cobalt Marled Beanie.

Another post featuring Outwear and Cute Winter Accessories. Today is all about my Red Buffalo Plaid Vest and Cobalt+Red Marled Beanie. Both pieces are new and perfect for this Winter. Plus they are bright enough for me to stand out among all this white snow. I wanted a Buffalo Plaid Vest badly so Pumps & Pushups delivered. I would normally do a Medium in a Puffer Vest (since I want them a little loose and easy to layer over heavy Winter clothes), as a matter of fact even Small usually fits me. But this one ran small and there was only size Large left which is a good thing because the large fit me so well. This Outfit is really a combination of brand-new pieces (Vest, Beanie and Jewelry) and some real old pieces. For example my Thick Turtleneck Sweater has been in my closet for close to a decade. I have worn it maybe half a dozen times and have dry-cleaned it too. It still holds up nicely. The Boots and Bag are from about 5-6 years ago while the Jeans are from early Fall this year. And just because it is cold and heavy Wintery you do not have to forego the jewelry. My Pendant Tassel Necklace and Stud Earrings both make a statement and both add more color and dress up this outfit. They are both super cute and super affordable (great recent buys from Wal Mart). So, do you own a Red Buffalo Plaid Vest and how have you styled it? I want to hear your ideas. Thanks. =)
