hacking jacket

Each Fall, Jackets always seem to instantly add a layer of warmth and finish to one's look.
A Jacket in a tweed herringbone is like an old friend.
 I have always admired Janet from The Gardener's Cottage.  Look at how great she puts her vintage RL
Hacking Jacket together with boots, a chambray shirt and leggings for riding around town. Love the shades too.
Here she is again, belting this same jacket with a white shirt, jeans and lace-ups.  Do you have a hacking jacket or favorite fall jacket?  Feel free to send me photos of your favorite fall item.

Oh, Janet looks so chic!!! I've got my new flats on (with yoga pants and fur trimmed cardigan). My "relaxed" look for the renovation!!!

Happy Monday!

She looks quite chic! Love a herringbone hacking jacket - I just bought one for fall, and am glad to have Janet demonstrating how to style it! My fall favorites have to be my PJs... wish I could stay cozy inside wearing them all days, but high heels, dresses and the workday call!
Happy Monday!

the perfect model for this post :)
I've been out of the jacket phase for quite some time. I was a jacket wearing girl in the early 90's. ALWAYS had one on. Now, mostly sweaters

Love the illustration and the real life inspiration. I adore jackets and outerwear and loving that we're finally getting to the weather where I can sport them!!

Love her hacking jacket! Especially the belted version--so very chic! If only it would get cold enough to wear one here!

Sadly, the 1950's tweed hunting jacket I stole from my dad in college is no longer with us... it would've been perfect to photograph! Nowadays, I'm more of a chuncky cable sweater person...

PVE,

Lovely look and great model. This look is so lovely and really in at the moment. I was out shopping and noticed the jacket trend picking up for this season. Love it!

Love the classics. As far as I am concerned they never fall out of style with me. Herringbone, tweeds - love them all!

You have such an eye for design. So esoteric and poised!
