I am in love.... What a great jacket. Beautiful fit, Even more beautiful colour. Great for spring and chilly evening. I think you can even wear it as a 'vest' in winter.
I love this jacket. I originally wanted the brown version, but it sold out in my size. I'm really glad that I went for the conflower blue as it is such a cheerful colour and is perfect for spring days or summer evenings. The cinched in waist is really flattering, and looser top meant there was ample room for larger chests which can be difficult with buttons!
I have my eye on the new oatmeal one, but would really love to see this in more brighter colours like this one - deep red or magenta maybe??
