This cute photo of Diana Spencer in 1975 with her pal Lucy Coats, (fitting name!) is making me want to rock a simple shetland-y sweater, classic jeans, and the kind of outerwear usually associated with hanging out in countryside stables (even though the closest I get to is a gander at the occasional cop on horseback).
This reversible piece from Madewell is a bit more like a military liner, but it’s still got that hanging-in-the-barn appeal.
I’m obsessing over this insulated 100% organic cotton Patagonia barn jacket that transforms into a vest, that would so perfectly countrify jeans and heeled boots.
Barbour’s quilted number is a true classic, and feels a little more polished in black.
Burberry’s version is a splurge, but the cute bomber shape is too good to ignore.I had to include L.L. Bean’s classic vest whose vibe is not unlike Diana’s! Makes a great under layer in the winter, too.
This All Saints jacket is a bit more London than Cotswolds, but I really like it!
J. Crew’s jacket comes in three good shades and is lined in a pretty Liberty print.
Another goodie from J. Crew is this corduroy-trimmed quilted piece.
L.L. Bean’s classic barn jacket is water-resistant and lined with Thinsulate which makes it work way into the colder months.
