B. is. for. Barbour.

Hello, lovely readers! Spring has officially sprung (as of this past Monday, anyway), which theoretically means winter *should* be behind us. Instead of sharing my own unique spin on groundbreaking floral, I'm getting chatty about transitional spring fashion. You know, like what to wear when the mornings are nippy and the afternoons are balmy. AKA, when Mother Nature can’t seem to make up her freaking mind. Side note: Don’t you hate it when it looks exceptionally nice out, but is anything but? SO DECEIVING. 

As you might’ve guessed from the title of this post, a certain Barbour jacket may or may not also be up for discussion. If you’re new to the blog, a Barbour jacket’s been on my splurge list for quite some time now, and for good reason. It’s a seasonless topper that can be dressed up or down for no shortage of downtown appeal. (Did I mention that even, regional cool girl, Alexa Chung has been known to style a Barbour on occasion? Cough, cough, Glastonbury Festival.) While I was originally set on the waxed Beadnell (and still am), I couldn’t pass up the opportunity to invest in a Beadnell Polar Quilted Jacket when I stumbled upon it on major sale. Fast-forward to now, and it’s been in heavy rotation. 

Though I wore this outfit back in February, I have a feeling that it’s going to be perfect for the full spectrum of spring weather we’ll be experiencing in the weeks (and potentially months) to come. It’s the quintessential topper to toss over a t-shirt dress and riding boots or team alongside jeans and Adidas Superstars (or Chuck Taylors) for a low-key look. On this particular outing, I opted for a considerably preppy green striped top and my go-to high-rise Margots from Industry Standard. Finally, for a much-needed pop of color, I finished off with some bright pink ballet flats.

  1. Ahh that transitional weather! It's SO hard to dress for. That Barbour jacket is absolutely perfect for those days that start at 30 degrees in the morning and end at 75 degrees.

    1. But seriously, the struggle is all too real. I can't tell you how many times I've reached for my Barbour lately (perfect with a dress + ankle boots!). Thanks for the comment, Deborah! :)
