I don't usually wear quilted vests, there is always either too hot or too cold to wear them. Overall, I don;t find myself wearing many of those 'in between' items: blazers, down vests, short sleeved sweaters, wool capri pants, etc.
I tried on the Excursion vest mostly for this blog:
I think this is very nice, as far as quilted vests go. I like the herringbone pattern, color and piping. It is not as bulky as some down vests and I think it makes more sense for the not-so-cold days, chilly morning and bundling up at soccer games.
For me it is a limited wearability item, but if you live in a different climate or you have more on-the-go lifestyle you may want to check it out.
This little quilted jacket is something I could easily wear in the fall. But I already have something very similar from Athleta, so I think I am set. I still tried in on for the blog.
The weight for perfect for a light, fall jacket. I liked olive green, but I also liked the red they had in store. I did not try it on but I thought the color itself was very pretty and close to true red, with maybe some pink (not orange) undertones.
That's all folks!
Do you wear quilted vests?
