Falling For Quilted Jackets

JCrew Factory quilted jacket // JCrew Factory merino wool turtleneck sweater // JCrew Factory jeans // BP Trott booties // Ray-Ban aviators

Last weekend while I was visiting home, JCrew Factory was having a 50% off sale (+ 15% for students) so I stocked up on several items for fall including a striped shirt, jeans, a turtleneck sweater, and this quilted jacket. This was a poor decision on my part because I could barely close my suitcase when I left for home, so when it was time to leave I had to do some very creative packing to make everything fit. On top of my new purchases, I also brought my gigantic Canada Goose parka home for the winter, and there was no way that I could cram it inside my suitcase, so I had to carry it around with me in the airport and on the plane. People were giving me looks because they genuinely thought that I was wearing a marshmallow of a winter jacket on a bright, sunny fall day. Packing light is definitely something that I need to work on...

I own the JCrew downtown field jacket but I wanted something a little warmer for cooler fall days. Last year JCrew had a quilted downtown field jacket but it was nowhere to be found on their website this year, so I opted for the JCrew Factory version. The jacket is a little bulky and boxy, so I think it looks best when worn open. Here are some other great options:
-Barbour Annandale quilted jacket
-L.L.Bean quilted riding jacket
-Vince Camuto quilted riding jacket
