The Perfect Jacket For My Santa Barbara Trip

Santa Barbara is such a beautiful city to visit, the weather and temperature are always so perfect. What I love most about it is the fact that you can get a city shopping experience in the Paseo Nuevo and then experience some of the smaller boutiques and shops as you start to walk down state street.  There are numerous restaurants to get something to eat or drink as you gradually make your way toward the beach to enjoy the sun and the pier. Don’t forget if you have time to visit the beautiful city hall and Santa Barbara Mission.

Last weekend the weather was perfect and on Saturday night we wanted to catch an early dinner and have a walk around town. The sun was starting to set and it was cooling off fast so I decided to wear my new Jacket Society “Haley Jacket”.  This jacket has a classic blazer silhouette that anybody can wear. The fabric color is a rich dark charcoal with a copper and metallic silver stripe.  I have chosen a pinstripe fabric here which again comes from my love of menswear fabrics and it also covers the big “menswear trend” of the season.  What I love about this particular pinstripe is the touch of metallic silver stripes.  This little twist, along with the animal print lining in my opinion give this great looking classic jacket an edgy up to date look.  Here I am wearing it with my waxed jeans and a soft silk blouse that has a little bit of beading around the shoulder to give it a different look.  Throw in some sexy sandals and a clutch and you are good to go for an evening out. This was the perfect jacket for my Santa Barbara trip trust me.

As I mentioned before my web site will be ready in the very near future where you can purchase this jacket. Meanwhile if you are interested to find out more info on this piece or would like to purchase one you can email me directly at

  1. Love this Harley jacket, a timeless, stylish, wearable piece! Wanting xx


  2. Great jacket! I love the placement of the flap pockets. Looks great with jeans but I also see it traveling well.


    1. Thank you so much Jennifer. I totally agree, it will definetly work with jeans. One of the things I always ask myself when I am desinging a new jacket is “will it work with jeans?” This is the whole purpose of “Jacket Society”, to come up with item jackets that work with jeans and other basics.
