the go-to jacket

$288, whistles
Anyone who sees me do the school run every morning can attest to my affinity for the army jacket. I have three of them, each one cut a little differently, all of them indispensable. It's my throw-it-on-over-everything go-to, because it adds style to even the most unstylish outfits (like my workout uniform!). I also like the contrast of an army jacket over something fancy, like a cocktail dress. Here, the zippered pockets, waist-cinching drawstring and cool motorcycle jacket cut yields enduring wear-everywhere greatness.

Can you fix the link for the Rag & Bone jeans? I'm so addicted to Rag & Bone. I think I just bought this pair, but I can't be sure...

Arg! Think the jacket sold out! I will follow up with Whistles and get back to you all!

Cheryl said...

Yup, already have this pair. LOVE them. Thanks Marlien!

Kathy said...

Not only that but the shirt appears sold out as well! Any other suggestions? Love your suggestions but apparently many others do too!

For a moment I thought that top was the Tracy Reese for Neimans for Target one!

Marlien, have you had any update on the Whistles jacket? I'm so hoping that more stock becomes available!

Marlien Rentmeester said...

I did hear from Whistles PR and sadly, the jacket is no longer available online. Boo! I will look around for an equally great stand-in!

Marlien, Have you seen the pictures inside Gwyneth Paltrow's new cookbook? In several she is wearing a great green jacket similar to the one you posted. If you have seen the pics, can you tell me who made that jacket? Thank you. Caroline
