It may only be the first week of April but the time-tested adage "April showers, bring may flowers" is holding true. As I type this, not only has it been raining consistently since last night but it is forecasted to continue doing so until tomorrow. To survive this never ending rainfall, I have been reaching for my favorite waterproof jacket nonstop making it the perfect subject of this week's "Monday Must-Have."
The Barbour Beadnell, (now 25% off here with the code FRIENDS!!) is based on the iconic men’s jacket the Bedale and popular with women of all ages. Cut in a slimmer style than the original, the Beadnell features waxed cotton that is not only a classic but also waterproof making it the perfect topper for soggy days. This jacket goes with everything and can be worn over dresses, skirts, jeans, shorts and more year-round. Excluding a few very cold days, I can even wear this jacket all winter long when layered strategically over sweaters and shirts. I have mine in the classic Beadnell and in the color "olive" pictured above and couldn't be happier with it. The muted hue and neutral tartan lining go with every color in my wardrobe and the quality is superior. I have had mine for a little over three years now and it still looks brand new. Below, I have included some of my favorite Barbour styling pics that I hope will help you decide if this classic is for you.
Until next time!
