Cheap and chic of the week

Screen Shot 2014-10-29 at 10.24.50 AM

I’ve been meaning to write about this J. Crew jacket for a while, because it is such a fantastic—but way better-priced—stand-in for this classic from Barbour. But I’m glad I waited, because right now, it’s one of many, many items the site is offering for 25% off. Just remember to enter the code STYLETREAT at checkout.

Wednesday Trifecta: blue camo

Sometimes—when I’m totally tempted to buy something but know I really shouldn’t— I’ll post it here, just to get it out of my system.  This Emerson Fry anorak has been haunting my dreams for weeks: now I hand it off to you. No backs.

This is pretty cute too, though, and costs half as much.

And here’s one that’s cheaper still.

I love a duffel coat


classic barbour duffel

So many different ways to go with this one: you can choose something utterly classic, like so.

Or make your duffel coat your puffer.

Or go with that whole pastel thing that’s so happening this season.

Like everything, a duffel gets a little more sophisticated in grey, and I like the houndstooth moment on the pockets, too.

Oh, I’m totally serious.
