Hopping the Pond


Brilliantly British



If there's one thing the Brits know, it's killer outerwear. The chilly, often rainy climate leaves those residing in the UK with the need to look stylish while they keep warm and dry. The Brits have perfected such staples as the trench, pea coat, field coat, blazer, and wellie. Joules, a three decade old British clothier, has jumped the pond to bring the US their stylish, functional pieces that are sure to become staples in your wardrobe. I was so excited to team up with my friends at Joules again to bring you my outerwear favorites for fall and upcoming winter.


FIELD JACKET
This field jacket is the perfect transitional day to night piece with it's fitted cut and gold hardware. I love that it's light-weight but still warm (sorry puffy coat you're cozy but make me look just that, puffy).

DOTTED WELLIES
These boots are just too cute. I love these for relaxed weekends paired with leggings or jeans, an oversized sweater, and latte in hand ready to conquer errands, a trip to the vineyard, or even posting up at your local coffee joint.

CLASSIC TRENCH
I love this bold, red trench. It's the perfect mix of traditional and ultra feminine. Pair this beauty with skinny jeans, or your favorite LBD and you're ready to roll.

TWEED JACKET
The cut, the fur, the... the... sigh. I adore this great play on the traditional tweed blazer. The fitted cut and removable collar (but why would you ever take the fur collar off, am I right?) make this the perfect cozy statement piece to liven up an outfit.

SLEEK WELLIES
Say it with me: sexy rubber boots. Did you ever think you would utter those words in the same sentence? But I assure you, these boots are just that. Sexy and sleek, the slick black sheen and gold hardware scream just scream polished and put together.

PEA COAT
This doesn't need much explanation, but you cannot go wrong with a navy pea coat with gold buttons. Care for this little lady, and you will have it for years to come. Name an outfit, you can top it with this coat.



Thanks to Joules for sponsoring today's post and inspiring us all to be Brilliantly British!
