It’ll be weeks before we need coats here in Northern California so I’m reaching for other options to stay warm. I love this time of year because I get to play with layers which offer so many options. Sweaters and wraps are certainly cozy but nothing beats a great jacket for making me feel instantly polished and pulled together.
Today I’m sharing the newest addition to my wardrobe which you’ll see lots of in the future. As a brand ambassador for Artful Home, I get the opportunity to choose a few items from each new collection to share with you. With an entire new collection to choose from, I always seem to fall for a Spirithouse Jacket. That tells me their style is in line with everything I love in jackets.
This Defacto Jacket is sewn from an all-season ponte knit which has a great weight and promises to become my new favorite. It has princess seaming with on-seam pockets and a slim silhouette. It’s clean lines and modern shape is fitted through the torso then eases over the hips giving my straight silhouette the illusion of curves…always a plus.
The collar can be buttoned to stand up or worn open. Both ways appeal to me, depending on the weather. It’s a soft gray chalk stripe on black which means it will go with all the gray I’m obsessing over this fall.
I styled it here with black jeans and black accessories for a modern urban feel. I’ll also wear it with blue jeans and flats for a busy day of running errands. It could also go over a dress with heels for work or a dressier occasion. That’s one of my favorite things about these jackets…they dress up and down with ease.
I love the contemporary vibe of this jacket. It’s classic lines and simple shaping will take me anywhere. Spirithouse jackets are always part of the Artful Home Travel Collection because their wrinkle-free fabrics mean they pack like a dream and are effortless to wear.
Even though I have finally lost a few pounds, (thank you low carb eating) I found this runs small. I went up a size and am wearing a medium. For reference, I am 5’4″ tall and weight 140lbs.
Thanks for reading ladies and supporting the brands that allow me to bring you new things.
