This time of year can be somewhat tricky when it comes to outerwear. Some days are really warm and summery, and some days it seems like it's November already. If it's chilly in the morning it can still be really warm by the time I go home from work. I rotate between an A.P.C safari jacket that I got on sale at 70% off earlier this summer (yay!), the Etoile Chuck jacket and the Helmut Lang blazer. The blazer is almost all wool, so it's been too warm for it until this past week. Along with a scarf and a cardigan these jackets will keep me warm for another month or so. They're completely different, but work for different occations. The safari jacket is perfect for hanging out in the park/playground and I wear the blazer to work and when I meet my friend without the kids. I intend to wear it inside during winter. The Chuck jacket has been a great spring/summer jacket, I'm so glad I found it. Sometimes I think that it's such a shame that I almost only wear my nice clothes/boots to work, but it's inevitable if you have small children unless you want to constantly wash them. It's not really a problem, but it's been such a releif to me to be able to wear nice clothes again after 14 months of maternity leave with my daughter, and 8 months with my son. I know that it sounds really shallow, but spit ups and yoghurt stains can be quite a challenge!
