Inspired by nature, I’m in the mood for green
Green has always been my favorite color, and especially that new-leaf, spring green that heralds longer, warmer days ahead. (Above: our elm tree was completely bare when I left for London; I returned to this gorgeous display just two weeks later!)
A smart casual outfit with a faux suede moto jacket
It’s not always easy to find green to wear though, other than olive/khaki which seems to have established itself as a go-to neutral. But I’ve had better luck this season!

While I was in London, the lovely people at Kettlewell Colours kindly sent over this “Rachel” faux suede moto jacket in Leaf (gifted) for me to try. I’m wearing Medium. It’s a great little lightweight jacket, perfect for travel and transitional season wear. It’s available in a bunch of colors, and is machine washable!
If you’re curious about seasonal color palettes, Kettlewell has some great info on their blogs. And if you know your season, you can filter all of the items to show just your colors or even find items in a specific color.
I’m officially a Senior Citizen…yes, I turn 65 today! 🎂 I’ve never had a problem sharing my age, as I consider every year a victory. 😆
I’ve been trying to ease out of wearing jeans daily (though they’ll always have a place in my wardrobe). I purchased these bright navy Theory wool trousers last year, but haven’t worn them much. They are a great fit (I’m wearing size 6) and quite comfortable, and I’ll be working them into rotation more often. (And I’ll definitely be including them in my next travel wardrobe.)
What’s your favorite jacket style?
Stay in touch.
