When I think about the fashion brand Barbour I think thick waxed jackets and Wellington boots – wrapping up in the winter time walking the dog or watching fireworks. I never really thought about Barbour doing anything outside their famous jackets until they got in touch asking if I’d like to style up some of their summer styles!
Barbour have so many beautiful dresses for the evening and during the day including this Catrina Dress in Garter Blue* (now just £27.95). Made from wonderfully comfy but heavy quality jersey it fits like a dream and swings along like any summery day dress should! I’ve styled it with a berry cardi, skinny leather belt and stone flats from Primark, my trusty Michael Kors and favourite floppy hat from Next!
Let’s be honest, in this country even on the hottest day of summer our evenings get pretty darn chilly and you’re going to need to take another layer for when the sun goes down. My Barbour Cavalry Polarquilt Jacket* (£149) is perfect for the summer months with just enough insulation to keep the chills away but not enough to make it unbearable to wear in the warm weather. It certainly saved me on a picnic Joe and I went on the other week when the weather took turn for the worst over our dessert on the hill!I’m really impressed with the quality and style of the full Barbour range and their sale is amazing too! I’d love to pick up some more bits from them for the warmer months, but I’ve still got my eye on those wellies and waxed jackets when winter rolls around again!
