Basic Building: Early Fall Jacket

Fall showed up immediately here on the East Coast. One minute we were sitting on the beach, the next, the leaves are falling, and there is a chill in the air.

During the Nordstrom Sale, I picked up this quilted jacket by The North Face. It’s just what you want in an early fall jacket. 

You get the quality of The North Face, in a classic style, so you can wear it season after season. It’s warm but super lightweight, water “repellent,” and you can throw it in the wash. If and when you start traveling again, it will pack like a dream too. 

This is the kind of purchase we talk about that has real staying power and a great example of price per wear. You’ll wear it all fall and early spring for years.

Now that we are back into a relatively normal routine, I’m spending more time driving the kids around, dropping them off at various practices, going to early morning games, and planning some outside fall activities. 

I live in a uniform of Zella leggings, sporty tops, sneakers, and this jacket for busy weekend mornings.

I ordered both the medium and the large and ended up keeping the large. There isn’t a huge difference between sizes. The medium fit, but felt just a bit snug under my arms. So if you are in between sizes, go up one. 

Some of the reviews mention it feels boxy. That isn’t my experience. I don’t want something that is so fitted I can’t have the option to layer heavier pieces underneath. This still has shape, while having room to move.
