Red, white and blue have been popular color combinations, especially in Spring & Summer, for many decades. Patriotic for some countries, but usually associated with a boating theme, in all kinds of clothing and accessories.
Lightweight jackets are always a must-have for Spring, Summer and Fall weather. This one has that classic look that goes over skirts and dresses, slacks, jeans and shorts. I was glad to come across it because I didn’t have one similar.
Yes, there are lots of modern jackets sold now that look like this one at first glance and Bobbie Brooks is still a modern label. What makes this one different? It was certain things about the material and the cut that told me, for sure. That is a skill I have learned which makes the “hit” rate high for me and multiplies the fun I have!
The magic and mystery are a daily thing for me, because you just never know what will turn up . . . . . . .
