Black Quilted Vest-A Wardrobe Staple

Happy Friday! Today I’m styling a black quilted vest that’s a wardrobe staple for me. I like to have different vests in my wardrobe to mix and match.

I recently did a post on stylish vests and I have definitely worn my fair share of them. I like the extra layering they add to an outfit. They can also add a pop of color and of course warmth.

black vest is great to have in your wardrobe. This one from Glamour Farms is a perfect layering piece. It comes in sizes XS through Large plus it comes in two more colors, navy and camel.

I’m wearing this vest with a striped top but it can be worn so many different ways. It would look great over a chambray shirt, a red and black buffalo check or even a cable knit sweater.

Beauty for the Heart~~Romans 8:31 says, What, then, shall we say in response to these things? If God is for us, who can be against us?

Maybe you need to be reminded of that today too. No matter what you’re facing today, know that God is with you and he is for you. He is on your side and he loves you!

  1. I am so excited. Not sure if you changed anything in your emails that go out, but I can see your images in my email for the first time today! JoLynne’s started to appear when she changed her email provider a week or so ago. Prior to this I had to open your posts in order to see any of your pictures. Loving the pre-view. Have a great day!

  2. Great post Cyndi. I too love vests and hope they stay in style for a while….because I have several ☺️
    I just replaced my black one but really like the one from GF, unfortunately wouldn’t pay $50 because I’ve seen them in all brands for less and they tend to go on sale this time of year. JCrew and Old Navy have some cute ones too.

  3. I love vests too! Another benefit that you didn’t mention is that they are super figure-flattering, especially for camouflaging big hips! I wear them a lot for that reason and because they are a good option for out mild Houston winters- but winter seems to be MIA this year. Love your blog Cyndi!

  4. I love vests and wear them a lot. The outfit I wore yesterday to do some shopping and get my hair done was very similar to yours, dark blue skinny jeans, black fleece vest, and black/white striped long sleeved crewneck tee, and short black booties. Easy to wear and very comfy!

  5. I love vests too and wear them a lot. Today I’m wearing my black quilted on with a red sweater and black and white chevron infinity scarf. (Great minds and all that.)

  6. I LOVE VESTS!! And I love seeing you wear your vest collection! Thanks for all of the work you do every day and over the weekend to not only get all of your outfits and links together ~ but also to post your spiritual message. I appreciate it! 🌸🌟💕

  7. I so love wearing vest because I can move around in them easily. Of course it’s in the mid 70’s here in Alabama today so no layering needed. I always look forward to seeing your outfits.

    Have a great weekend!

  8. Didn’t get your email today! Never had an issue before, and I know you were getting a new service…. just thought I’d let you know

  9. Well I wish I was able to wear some of my winter clothes, but in south Louisiana it’s been in the 70’s and 80’s. I guess there’s always next year. I do however love some of the clothes you have been styling this year and actually bought a few things. I do enjoy checking out your blog daily just to see what you are styling. Keep up the great work!

  10. Love your Beauty for the Heart today. Great timing and a great reminder.

    Such a cute outfit today. Love the vest and striped top!

  11. Love the tshirt! Can I beg you to do a post on tshirts that are looser but not maternity loose? Being very hippy, I struggle with finding a tshirt the does not span across my stomach and hip area. As you know, a good tshirt is a real staple and I am in desperate need. You find the best clothes so I am really hoping you will take on this request!

    Blessing as always.

  13. Now I’m wondering why I didn’t throw on my white quilted vest this morning! I’m wearing your formula from earlier this week, but I could use a little warmth on my back (it’s always cold at work, even though the high today is supposed to be 79). Le sigh.

  14. Love love love vests! I wear them all the time too – it is almost like my uniform! You gave me a great idea for a gray infinity scarf I have that is so similar to the one you have on!
    We too are having crazy weather in TX! 75 yesterday and in the 40s with wind today! Crazy!

    Thanks for sharing your keen fashion sense!

  15. I have each piece as staples in my closet. The hunter boots were a Christmas gift that I requested because of you 🙂
    I also received the tall red glossy ones too…..(I must have been good last year LOL !!!). I do not comment very much however, I thoroughly enjoy your blog and really look forward to your scripture message as well. I know this scripture is special to you and Wayne as you have shared that before. My husband and I used this verse in our wedding as it has an extra special meaning for us. Have a great weekend. ~Lisa~

  16. Love the outfit , Cyndi! I love rain boots too and put my inch and three fourths invisible heels in them too😉 The vest is great looking! 72 is the high today here so we are back in fall attire. Have a great day! Bonnie E.

  17. I do love my vests too Cyndi!! I’m surprised that I don’t have a puffer one like this, because it’s always amazing how much a vest really does keep you warm!
    I feel like I’ve even been wearing them more this winter once I realized I could layer them over a jacket—since I’m always cold, this is perfection!
