Harbour The Barbour

The original wax jacket is still one of the hottest things to own. Barbour has been around since the 1930's! It's one of the most practical pieces of clothing, keeping you warm and dry through winter AND i believe festival season is coming up... perfect!

I was actually given my Barbour jacket by my mum! It's about 25 years old and i can honestly say, it's one of the best things i have ever been given! It's a masculine shape so its good to wear with shorts or leggings to keep it feminine, also, i sometimes wear mine with a belt to clinch in the waist! 
My Beautiful Vintage Barbour!

You can get hold of yours either in stores or online, i have found this beautiful brown one that will fit perfect with any wardrobe. They will last for ages and you can keep getting them re-waxed so it's a perfect investment!
