Great, classic pieces.
I just have to pop over today to share some fashion PSAs.
Barbour coats are on sale! This rarely happens… so if you’re in the market for a new Barbour coat, now is the time! If you’re curious, they’re pretty forgiving size-wise. I wear the US2 so it’s a bit more form fitting when zipped up, but you could easily go up a size for a more casual “borrowed from the boys” look.
Bean Boots are already backordered! If you want a pair of Bean Boots for this winter, you should order ASAP. The backorder isn’t too long yet (mid-October from what I can tell), but soon it will be too late. (You don’t want to have to wait until MARCH to get them!) They run big. I would recommend going down a full size, even if you wear thick socks. I have the six inch boots which are the perfect height for me, but if you’re taller than 5’6″ I would go with the eight inch boots.
J. Crew’s cable knits are back in stock! I’ve been crossing my fingers that the regular cable knits would come back this year and they did!! I definitely placed an order immediately to replace one of mine that has seen better days and to get a few new colors and styles. They come in great colors and various styles this year… kinda want them all if we’re being honest.
One day I'll get a pair of those boots! They're cute!

I need a pair of those boots they are so cute!
I'm about to order a Barbour jacket from the Nordstrom sale and I'm torn between the Beadnell and the Utility Jacket! Which do you recommend for a first Barbour purchase?
Ohhh so tempting with that Barbour on sale! I just bought a J Crew peacoat to replace my old one last month so I probably shouldn't…but it's totally necessary right 😉

Thought I'd give some advice on sizing since I have a few Barbours and have been wearing them for years. I'd definitely recommend sizing up. I'm 115 lbs and 5'7 and wear a US 6 in the Beadnell. Also for Bean Boots, I wear the kids size. I am typically a womens size 8 and can fit into a kids size 6, perfectly.
I've been lusting over a Barbour jacket, but I think I'll just stick to purchasing a J.Crew Field jacket because I'm utterly in love with it! LOL about the bean boots though because last year I purchased mine in the summer so I could get them on time and now everyone in my school has been dying for them (I think I'm a little bit of a trendsetter!) and everyone is complaining that they are so backordered! Since it's October I've just begun wearing them and I forgot how much I loved them! I have the navy eight inch and they are perfect!

Wow! I never even knew what those jackets were called. I have one and I just call it a military jacket that I found for like $5 on a clearance rack at a store I honestly hate LOL! But I definitely want to invest in another one and I'm not too sure how I feel about the boots. I like feminine boots and the Bean boots are just a little too grungy for me. That sweater is life though! I'll definitely try finding one thats more price say for my budget lol. Overall, great article!
