It has poured here all day and all night! The boys had their birthday party this morning. So thankful that so many of their buddies could make it! Can’t wait to share more pics with y’all on this week’s Wednesday Whereabouts. For the time being, I wanted to share my rainy day outfit that I pretty much wear every single time it rains. Ha. It’s super comfy and my dress is on sale for $27. For fit, I’m wearing a small and still have plenty of room. My scarf is only $33! I got it dry-cleaned at the end of last season, and it was still as good as new when I pulled it back out.
Georgia is playing Alabama right now, so we’re chilling on the couch watching the game (Go Dawgs!), while the kiddos nap. I’ve got my computer here so I’ve been doing some shopping around, while I’m watching.
I just realized that Barbour Jackets are currently on sale during Bloomingdale’s Sale Event. This is great, considering they rarely go on sale. The style I own is the Beadnell style and I LOVE it! Use code: FRIEND at check-out. Wearing these boots.
Below is a re-post that I wrote earlier about Barbour Jackets and how they fit.
How Do I Know What Size/Style Barbour to Choose?
For sizing, it can be very confusing which size to purchase, as these are made in the UK and different Barbour styles fit very differently. I am a 4/6 and am wearing the Barbour Beadnell Jacket in Sage, Size US 6, UK Size 10. If you’re deciding between two sizes, definitely go up a size. I’m going to be honest, it was hard deciding what size and style to order in these jackets. I finally decided on the Beadnell in a Size 6, and have still been so happy with it.
Why I Love My Barbour…
– It has a waxed shell, making it waterproof. You can also order this hood to attach to your jacket.
– It has fleece-lined hand pockets with perfect placement. You can see me using mine in the photos above. The perfect spot for warming your hands on cold days!
– Love the length. I’m 5’6″ with a long torso and it covers my rear. Very important
– If needed, you can also purchased a zip-in liner.
Beadnell vs. Bedale
These are two very popular Barbour styles for women. Basically, the Beadnell is a little more fitted (but not too much). It looks different than the Bedale because it has two seams running down the front and back for a more tailored look, and it’s slightly shorter than the Bedale. The Bedale has internal knit cuffs, while the Beadnell does not. I actually like not having the internal knit cuff. The Bedale also has air vents on the sides and a rear pocket, which I didn’t think was necessary. So all in all, the Beadnell wins in my book!
While Bloomingdale’s is having their 25% off sale, don’t forget that Nordstrom price matches. Many items on their site have already been marked down, while Bloomingdale’s sale continues. So if you see something at Bloomingdale’s on sale, and it’s sold out in your size, or if you’re just partial to shopping at Nordstrom, be sure and check if it’s on sale there.
One great example is the Barbour Jacket I featured above. It’s on sale at Nordstrom right now too, and available in a lot more sizes!
Another is this Equipment Mina Dress. Y’all know how much I love this style, and while it’s on sale at Bloomingdale’s, it’s also on sale at Nordstrom too. I wear a small in this style.
This little Kate Spade Fox Watch will be on repeat this season! Just like my cocktail one I wore all summer, as soon as I saw this one, I knew it would be so fun to wear this fall! Worn here with this Anthropologie Top and this Wrap Bracelet.
And more Fall Faves…
These striped knee high socks and these button oatmeal-colored ones are perfect to pair with boots this fall…and they’re only $16! // The Girl on the Train (my must-read rec) // Nest Candle (no brainer – encompasses the aroma of fall in one scent – trust me on this one) // Ugg Slippers in Chestnut (if you haven’t tried these yet, you need to; I’ve been wearing this style for at least the past three years, still my all time fave – if you’re between sizes, go up a size. I’m an 8.5 and wear a 9 in these.)
Don’t forget, Tory Burch’s Fall Event Promo goes through Monday at midnight.
Use code: FALLEVENT at checkout. I shared my favorites on Thursday’s post.
Alright, back to the game! Seriously though, it’s 4:15 and Wheeler JUST got up! It’s been that kind of day around here.
Happy Saturday, Y’all!
