I really like this time of year. Even though we endured the most recent iteration of the Ice Age last week, a quick turnaround to high 60 degree temperatures puts Spring in front of mind. I wake up every morning with quite a few emails – the “winter final sale” ones are starting to fade, giving way to the “new Spring collection” releases. I’m really tired of this weather. I’m ready for it to warm up so we can take advantage of very handsome options like this Lexington Jacket from Billy Reid.
This is a perfect shade of blue – it has the vintage feel that Billy Reid is known for. The lapel is just right – not too thin and not too wide. Soft shoulders and the white buttons give it a more casual feel – but a very stylish look.
I’ve been looking for a jacket like this for quite some time. The cotton/linen blend is a perfect three-season layer and goes with almost everything. Wear this with a pair of cream or tan jeans and a good plaid shirt… or a pair of dark jeans and a white oxford… Regardless: no socks required.
