The Best Winter Jacket

The weather in North Carolina has been downright freezing lately! While I don’t typically mind the cold, the 10 and 20 degree days have me SO ready for spring. This weather has made even the simplest of tasks, like going to the grocery store, so daunting haha. Anyone else lack motivation when the temps dip low?!

Lately I’ve been relying on layering up and my favorite winter jacket to keep me warm. A few years ago I invested in a Barbour jacket and I can say it has been the best winter jacket. After doing some research, I purchased the Classic Beadnell Wax Jacket as it seemed perfect for everyday wear and fit my needs well. This winter in particular I have worn it non-stop (in rain, snow, etc.) and it still looks brand new. Over the years I’ve had my fair share of winter coats, but none have kept me warm like this one! Anyways, this is an outfit I’ve had on repeat recently due to pure warmth and comfort!

I hope y’all have a wonderful weekend! I’m off to an event later this afternoon (be sure to follow along on IG stories) & I’m not sure what the rest of the weekend holds…which is sometimes nice.

      Hi Aleda,

      I got the US2 in the jacket. Barbour tends to fit a bit more oversized, so I went with the smallest size. It’s great to wear with just a long sleeve or a bigger sweater! 🙂 Hope that helps!
