Spring weather has finally landed here in NYC, and man does it feel good! I love being able to walk around in just a few light layers instead of feeling the need to cover every inch of skin while venturing outdoors (and feeling bad for my left-out nose). While I have a few spring go-tos that have been in my closet for years (and that I love dearly), I couldn’t help but fall in love with this patterned silk bomber jacket. Not the most practical you say? Well, sure. But I find that I wear it all the time! It’s an easy fit, works well over extra layers, and it’s reversible. Oh yes. Two-for-one. Be on the lookout for a post featuring the other side. It’s on its way.
I recently posted about first impressions with outerwear, but since that post the temperature in Boston has continued to drop, and I thought I would share my current favorite outerwear option. This baby has been playfully dubbed my “early winter jacket,” since when the temperature really drops I will resort a serious, knee-length down jacket. In the mean time, this is my go-to. It’s warm and cuddly and the wool is soft and not at all scratchy. And, seriously, just look at that hood.
What are your favorites for this cold-before-the-storm type of weather?
