Out on the Field

field mechanic + gingham

Here's another go at my wearing the field mechanic jacket. This has quickly become my go-to casual weekend outerwear for its light warmth and ease. And since I think gingham goes with pretty much everything, gingham and this jacket will see a whole lot of each other.

And off-topic, but who else is sad about the end of Downton Abbey? What am I going to do without my weekly fix of Mary's bitchiness, the Dowager's quips, Mosley's innocent blundering and sweet, dedicated Anna? Good thing I'm nose-deep into binge-watching Gilmore Girls right now to help lessen the pain ...

  1. Pretty! Love your utility jacket and the embellished brooch!

    xx, Elise

    1. Thanks much, I think it is a fun way to dress up a really casual jacket!

  2. Been eyeing that jacket for awhile, only wish it came in Tall, I'm a bit worried about the sleeves being too short. I'm so sad about Downton too! Mary, Anna & Mrs.Patmore are my favorites, but I'll really miss swooning over Henry Talbot every Sunday night!

    1. I got the petite size and the sleeves hit me perfectly, that's a shame if JC didn't offer a tall version of the jacket.

      Have you seen Matthew Goode (the guy who plays Henry) in Leap Year or Stoker? I thought he was so creepy-handsome in Stoker, even though he played a sociopath, eek!

    2. I heard about him in Stoker but I've never seen it. I liked him as Finn Polmar in the Good Wife though. Ok, off-topic, I'll stop obsessing now!

    3. Ooh, I've never seen him on The Good Wife before, I must check that out - thanks!

  3. Love a good army jacket!!
    I too am soooooo sad Downton is going away. My fave was Edith. And the Dowager. And Daisy and Mrs. Patmore. Ahhhhh... at least we have reruns!

    1. I hope Downton comes back to Netflix so I can rewatch the earlier "more carefree" seasons. I think they dragged it out for too long, but I miss the bantering of Matthew and Marie!
