The Jacket You Won't Mind Splurging on

Barbour Jacket
SHOP MY OUTFIT:

Outfit Details:
Jacket: Barbour | Sweater: Old Navy | Jeans: Similar | Booties: Similar | Necklace: Love Always


As most of y'all know, I love finding dupes, or look-a-likes, of expensive clothing/shoes and share them with you guys on here! (See my post on Stuart Weitzman dupes here.) As much as I would love to own high end designer clothing, I just can't afford to spend an unnecessarily high amount of money on items that I can find almost identical pieces at Target. Maybe one day haha.

Before I start talking about this jacket, I wanted to make a disclaimer. Yes, most people may not think that $400 is "splurging" on a jacket, but for someone like me, who buys most of her coats from Target, $400 is a lot to spend on a piece of clothing, even a jacket!

BUT THIS JACKET IS WORTH THE SPLURGE!

Instead of going on about how cute, warm, and comfortable this jacket is (which it is all of the above), I want to talk about the quality! When you buy a Barbour jacket, you are going to have it for years! It's not going to fall apart and it won't go out of style. To prove my point: my dad has a Barbour jacket that belonged to my grandpa. Who knows how old it is, but it still looks brand new, maybe even better looking!

Moral of the story is: You will 100% get your money's worth out of a Barbour jacket! It will get better with age, and you will have it forever.. maybe even pass it down to your kids! And I mean, look how cute it is!!

Thanks so much for reading! xo

  4. I am all for a good copy/ dupe but sometimes, if it's a piece that you know you're going to get a lot of wear out of, it's best to spend the money on it so it will last and not wear easily! This jacket is so cute too!

  10. I totally agree with you! I always look for major sales or just find similar ones at H&M or target but splurging on something that can last you for generations is totally worth it! Especially a jacket like this one. It's so cute!

  14. Yesss! I bought my first Barbour jacket my sophomore year in college after obsessing over the one my Merchandising professor had on. It honestly may look better now than then! LOVE the color you chose and how you paired it with a neutral palette. Such a smart investment. Also...need to know your lipstick color ASAP. Obsessed!
