Channelling my pandemic winter woodswomen cabin look in #pic 1.
Eddie Bauer plaid shirt over extra-warm Heattech, Uniqlo "denim" jersey lined sweatpant/jogger, JJ long vest and Minnetonka slip-on lined indoor-outdoor "slippers". (I only wear them at home but have run out to the birdfeeder in them).

I really recommend the Uniqlo pants , but they are selling/sold out. I actually run too cold to wear them even indoors on our colder days/evenings at home--have to wear underlayer or switch to EB sherpa-lined sweatpants! So that makes them useful for me because I can wear them on many days other folks might get by with regula sweatpants/joggers. I love the denim-esque color, as a change from black and gray, and how it goes with a lot of my shirts that have some blue. 3rd thing that made them a keeper for me is that somehow they are more skimming over hip, not bulgy, and straight hem rather than jogger cuff.
The long vest I am still not sure if it will get enough wear to justify, because vests are kind of seasonally -confused for me even though I have several regular length fleece, puffy, and a leopard fuzzy. But the longer length DOES add more warmth and also I plan to try more on outdoor walks, and also styling it with more tailored and even feminine looks for wearing out and about. The 2-way zip makes it more useful also.
Pic 2-3 is What I Might Keep --the Athleta dark floral puffer that Janet also reviewed.
I had crossed it off my radar and then saw it IRL in store, but too small size. I just loved the colors and print and the shirttail hem! Also did not realize it had 2-way zip. The store had an XS in another color that seemed to fit but didn't have a size S in any of the Downtown puffers to try a size up, which I like to do. I had to order from out of state store so ordered XS and here it is. I love it and I think this size is good for what would be more of a "fashion" puffer jacket for me. It zips fine, but I like wearing it open a lot , which is how I wear jackets "going in and out" of places, as opposed to walking in serious cold weather (and even then I typically unzip as I warm up) so with this fit I would also wear it with "real" clothes, like sporty luxe. If the sleeves were longer, they would bother. Of note is I have a solid berry-colored Archteryx nano-down puffer jacket, more roomy, so works even over bulky underlayers and is what I use for hiking, travel, or just for how the color works.
Shown with the Altitude pant which works with the longer back hem, as would fleece leggings, whereas I don't like wearing those "out" with regular jacket lengths. ?

Comments welcome. Do you think the floral will be too "much", too trendy and get dated/tiresome?
