Colmar Lightweight Down Jacket

Hello mamas!  Recently, Marc and I had the opportunity to venture to Las Cruces, New Mexico where we visited with my aunt and uncle. The weather was pretty hard to pin down — in the mornings and evenings, it got chilly but mid-day, it really heated up.  My constant companion was this fun Colmar lightweight down jacket, which kept me cozy but not too hot.


I am a huge fan of down coats.  I love that they are light, waterproof, easy to pop on and off, and great for travel.  In planes, trains and automobiles (when I’m not driving), I use them as a pillow for napping!

With all the new fashions out nowadays, down jackets have gotten funkier too and can bring a lot of functional style to your wardrobe.

But I’ve never had a down coat for spring or fall, only for winter.  So this Colmar jacket really filled a hole in my wardrobe, namely the April and October hole.


This Colmar spring down coat is pretty original also because it has a fun flare skirt for an added touch of feminine whimsy.


Here I am in Mesilla, the old part of Las Cruces, and you get a sense of how strong the sun is.


This photo shows one other fun aspect of the jacket — the three quarter sleeves!


Thanks so much for reading and check back in next Wednesday for another fashion post!
