We're almost in February and spring and summer are starting to knock on the door. Where as in Finland it will still take about 4 more months, a big part of my readers will most likely be enjoying the sun quite soon.
One summer item I was able to find from the winter sales, luckily, was a blogger blue cotton jacket from L.B.M. 1911. I've been looking for one for years, and gladly found one for a very reasonable price (from Yoox) in my size. The real color of this Italian piece of art is somewhere between the first and the second photograph.
The weight is good for summer and spring both, and the fit is Lubiams' unstructured 2-button one, with patch pockets. This is a piece that can be used with a variety of different items, with faded denim or beige chinos jumping into my mind first.
Naturally, it got dark in the few minutes I had to take the pictures, so the last shot is somewhat artificially lit. It does, however, show the shape of the jacket quite well. To give it a touch of summer love for the pics I've hanged a pink
linen tie on it. That almost takes you out of the -18° C outside.
