The holiday season is in full swing, and I couldn’t be more excited about it! After a crazy year, I’ve been so looking forward to this festive and cozy season. (Can you believe there are only 11 days until Christmas?!) I’ve been posting my annual Twenty Five Days of Gift Guides on the blog over the last few weeks and I’m back today with one of my favorite brands to give and get… Barbour!
My Barbour coats have gotten a lot of love on the blog over the years! To me, they’re the quintessential fall jackets that you can layer into the winter, as well. I’ve had my sage green waxed Beadnell jacket for quite a few years and added my quilted navy Beadnell jacket to my closet last fall. Today, I’m styling the black waxed Beadnell for a trip to the tree farm!
Not that it’s anything to be surprised by, but the weather in Chicago has been so strange this fall. It was *hot* well into October, then dropped down drastically seemingly overnight in November, went back up to more mild temperatures at the beginning of December, and has been absolutely freezing every since. That’s the thing in Chicago… you’ve got to be prepared for all of the seasons, and sometimes multiple in the same day.
One of the great things about the waxed Beadnell jackets is that they can be easily dressed up or down, for a variety of different temperatures with the right layering! I styled my new black jacket with a cable-knit turtleneck (complete with leather elbow patches!) and blue jeans… A simple outfit that can be worn for a weekend exploring the city or running errands. You could swap my warm boots for classic flats, loafers, heels, or sneakers depending on where you’re headed!
Oh, and this tartan scarf? It’s the perfect pop of plaid for the holiday season and beyond! What I love most about it is that it matches all colors of Barbour jackets… It goes so well with this black coat, my green Beadnell, and my quilted navy one, too. It’s so soft and only $59, so it’s a great price for gifting!
I’m sure I’ve mentioned this at some point, but a few years ago, I realized just how functional winter hats and beanies are. Chances are, if you’ve ever seen me out and about in the fall, winter, or early spring, I’m always in a beanie. I used to think I “couldn’t pull off” beanies, but they make a world of a difference when it comes to keeping warm so I just forced it until it felt normal. I swear they keep me from getting sick, especially when my hair is sweaty after leaving a workout! However, they *can* look a bit androgynous so I usually opt for a fun little pom pom on top for a little feminine flair. This Barbour beanie is a must-have this fall… Such a great gift to give under $50, too! Plus, it comes in a few colors. I’m all about that “one for you, one for me” gift buying strategy.
Let’s talk gifting, shall we? I gave my brother a Barbour jacket for Christmas two years ago and I love seeing that he still wears it today! And you can’t go wrong with gifting Barbour accessories… A classic tartan scarf or a playful beanie are sure to be loved. Here are some more of my favorite Barbour gifts at Nordstrom…
The best part of gifting your guy a Barbour scarf is that you can *totes* borrow it. 😉
