It's no secret that I love a good Barbour coat. I just can't get enough of them... and find that they're perfect for layering for all kinds of weather. It's really in the fall when they come in handy though. I have two Beadnells and wear them often. When I saw the Squire jacket, however, I knew I had to have it. It has the classsic Barbour look (and feel from the waxed cotton), but a bit of a more tailored look when zipped up with the perfect length. I love that I can sit on a bench and not have to worry as well as wear a pair of leggings with no problem.
I styled it two different ways, one a bit more outdoorsy and another a bit more city. This is the first look and we shot it in Central Park! This is seriously an outfit I throw together all the time, especially when I'm out walking Teddy in the mornings. I keep my jeans and cable knit sweater tossed over the chair in my bedroom so I can throw everything on and run Teddy outside for his walk. (Boots have been a must as we've been having some rainy/soggy weather.)
Nordstrom carries all the great Barbour styles (for men, too!) and offers fast, free shipping. The hardest part about outerwear is sizing, regardless of brands. I almost always go up a size or two so I can layer all the warm clothes for my Florida-thin blood; if it doesn't fit the way you want, just pop it into the mail and exchange it. (I like being able to try things on at home with my clothes so I know exactly how it will look with my favorite sweater, for example.)
