We’re definitely having that in-betweeny weather right now. Cold in the morning, windy, but sometimes really quite warm by lunchtime. I didn’t have a jacket for this awkward weather, until now. Step forward the in-betweeny jacket.
Last week at work I was freezing. I wasn’t even outside, but the draft was so cold that I knew I needed to start taking in a warm jacket the following week. Not a big, thick coat as it’s not quite cold enough for that, but my denim jacket just wasn’t doing the job. So I headed off to Primark in the hope that I could find something that would fit the bill and came out with an absolute bargain.
There were so many coats and jackets to choose from in Primark, but I knew I wanted something that was a little more casual. I tried on a rust coloured cord jacket in a similar but the fit just wasn’t right on me, there was just too much excess fabric.
This puffer jacket, or windbreaker as it was labeled, is not something I’d usually go for at all but for some reason I really, really like it. What I like most about this jacket is that it is not too ‘puffy’. Some jackets that are very padded make me feel like the Michelin Man. Not a good look. This one has the perfect amount to keep you warm but not look ridiculous. I mean, it’s not going to keep you very warm on very cold days, but it’s perfect for Autumn and Spring.
The colour is absolutely perfect, too. It is hard to describe, actually. Kind of a deep rose pink slash rust. Basically, it will go with all of the autumnal tones. Winning. It came in a lot of other colours, too, if this ain’t your bag. I think I saw cobalt blue and a bright red amongst many others.
I wore it over a forest green cord pinafore dress from Topshop and a stripy high neck jumper, but it is one of those jackets that I’m going to be throwing over an and every outfit, to be honest.
If you’re interested in the outfit I’ve got on underneath this perfect in-betweeny jacket then I’ll be posting it at some point next week.
