bridge & burn: a fall jacket giveaway.

November 17, 2015


bridge_and_burn_giveaway_reading_my_tea_leaves5D9A3205-EditWe’re having something of a Pacific Northwest moment on these tea leaves. If you’ve been around here for awhile, you’re probably familiar with my longtime sponsor, Bridge & Burn. These guys design their clothes in Portland, Oregon and everything in their collection has that particular Pacific Northwest vibe of easy outdoorsism and practicality.

bridge_and_burn_giveaway_reading_my_tea_leaves5D9A3189-EditThis week, one lucky Reading My Tea Leaves reader will be taking home a Howell Jacket—size and color of their choosing. In keeping with the spirit of the brand—and other jackets of theirs that I’ve had the chance to try on for size—the Howell Jacket is a jacket for rambling around in. There are deep pockets for collecting treasures, a cozy hood for protecting yourself from the elements, and a perfect blend of comfort and style. bridge_and_burn_giveaway_reading_my_tea_leaves5D9A2878-EditI’m modeling the Howell Jacket in black in these shots. Like everything from Bridge & Burn, the beauty is in the details.bridge_and_burn_giveaway_reading_my_tea_leaves5D9A3047-EditThe brushed black cotton is super soft and the oversized fit makes it cozy and comfy.bridge_and_burn_giveaway_reading_my_tea_leaves5D9A3219-EditDouble pockets leave plenty of options of treasure-gathering and hand-warming. bridge_and_burn_giveaway_reading_my_tea_leaves5D9A3083-EditA roomy hood is perfect for blocking gusty winds.bridge_and_burn_giveaway_reading_my_tea_leaves5D9A3233-EditTo enter, submit your email address into the form below.

    Dig the jacket, but can you tell us about the boots you’re wearing in these photos? I like them too!

    Thank you for this! Would love a new coat 🙂

    Just browsing through their site for the first time and love the dresses. Have you tried any? Are they super loose-fitting? Loose-fitting is not a good look on my short, curvy frame but if you’ve tried them please let me know!

    • Reply Erin Boyle November 17, 2015 at 12:04 pm

      Depends a lot on the particular style, I think!

  • Reply Christina J. November 17, 2015 at 11:53 am

    I agree with Lesley! Are you by chance also wearing their Amherst Olive Heather top? Great pairing with the coat.

    Ooooooh I’m hoping this will be my time to win a giveaway because I’ve been drooling over the howell jacket for some time now.

    I love everything you are wearing! What jeans do you have on? They are just as lovely as the jacket.

  • Reply Audrey November 17, 2015 at 12:58 pm

    Do you mind sharing what size jacket you’re wearing? Trying to get an idea of how it fits (I may have to order it regardless!)

    • Reply Erin Boyle November 17, 2015 at 1:01 pm

      I’m in an xs. The fit is definitely roomier than the other jackets I’ve worn of theirs (like the Warbler!)

  • Reply Sarah November 17, 2015 at 1:17 pm

    Love this! Just entered but also wanted to say how much I love your bangs 🙂

    • Reply Erin Boyle November 17, 2015 at 1:20 pm

      Aww dang! Thanks so much!

  • Reply Jordan November 17, 2015 at 1:32 pm

    I love this! Can you tell us what kind of weather this would be good for? Is it a light fall/spring jacket or can it go into the winter months? Just trying to gauge the warmth!

    • Reply Erin Boyle November 17, 2015 at 1:34 pm

      Hi there:I call it a fall jacket in the head because it’s probably not warm enough to get through the coldest winter days, it’s still cozy and warm enough for cool weather. Perfect for spring, too!

  • Reply Emily Crittenden November 17, 2015 at 1:42 pm

    I am in love with the brushed cotton. I love the oversized pockets and the fit. This jacket is a dream.

  • Reply Bridgit November 17, 2015 at 1:45 pm

    Such a great fall combo! Hoping to win and may just buy the shirt to go with it.

  • Reply Masha November 17, 2015 at 3:16 pm

    I need something like this, cute and comfy, for walking my dog. My current options are so embarassing, especially when paired with pj pants first thing in the morning haha.

  • Reply Suzanne November 17, 2015 at 4:28 pm

    You look great in this! I’d be one thrilled winner and would probably wear it 3 out of 4 seasons here in Seattle. I’d love to visit them in their Portland store when we get down there.

  • Reply Kate November 17, 2015 at 5:00 pm

    I have a, heavy deep-winter jacket but have been searching for a lighter alternative to get me through the in between days of autumn and spring. Love the the look of this one! It definitely make you look ready for adventuring. 🙂

  • Reply Sarah November 17, 2015 at 8:14 pm

    Would love a new winter coat! It looks perfect for going outdoors in the fall 🙂
