The official first day of fall is just a week away, and here in the Chicago area, the temperatures are starting to prove it. The last few days have been in the 60s, and we hosted a dinner party on Friday where the lows were in the 40s, which felt slightly unbearable when we tried to hang out on our deck. I may not be ready to say goodbye to summer, but like it or not, warmer threads are going to be necessary sooner than later. And the recent chilly weather made me realize that neither Essley nor I have any warm outerwear for this season. She has (obviously) outgrown last winter’s clothing (and this is her first fall), and my only real coat/jacket lost several buttons and popped a seam last year, thanks to my at the time very pregnant belly. It is officially time to grab something new for both of us.
The adorable baby girl coats and gorgeous womens coats and jackets you see above all come from a wonderful brand called Joules that is based out of the UK. For three decades, they have been devoted to crafting the highest quality clothing designed to capture the true essence of British style. And recently, they’ve crossed the pond to become available here in the USA too. I really love their use of color and cute prints, and I appreciate their commitment to quality over the fast, poorly produced pieces that are so prevalent today. In addition to their outerwear, they make clothing, accessories, and footwear for women, men, children, and babe. I’m seriously crushing on all their little girl clothes and their women’s rain boots.
Now I just have to decide which coats to buy. Which ones are your favorite? Have you gotten any new fall/winter outerwear yet this season?
