a fall giveaway with bridge & burn.

November 1, 2016

sponsored giveaway from @bridgeandburn | reading my tea leaves

This giveaway is sponsored by Bridge & Burn, makers of classic and understated apparel for men and women.

It’s officially cold-weather season. I know a lot of people relish the time of year that means dressing in cozy layers, but I admit that it sometimes interferes with my perennial wish to throw on a simple dress and call myself good to go. Then there’s the added problem of my cold-weather clothes feeling somber. (I wrote yesterday about making a concerted effort to make sure I don’t spend the next five months dressing like I’m headed to a funeral…)

In case you’re finding yourself staring at a closet of equally dreary cold-weather duds, never you fear. Longtime RMTL sponsor Bridge & Burn is hosting a special giveaway this week, offering one lucky reader the chance to peruse their shop with a $300 gift card in hand for the spending. (And to everyone else, they’re offering a special discount; more below.)

One of my favorite things about Bridge & Burn’s collections every season is their attention to detail. This fall their collection is filled with tiny prints, soft flannels, rich colors, and plenty of texture. They always do an expert job of making their clothes stand out from the crowd, but maybe best of all, the individual pieces stand out from each other at the same time that they work together. The better to layer with, my dears. And with all of those colors, Bridge & Burn could help a New Yorker lighten up her severe all-black ensemble pretty quickly. A peek at a few details:

The jacket is lined with warm fleece and the exterior shell is made from a thick waxed cotton in a beautiful brown/black. It’s a jacket cozy enough for blustery days in places where the weather tends to be a little less mild than it is in Bridge & Burn’s home base of Portland, Oregon. sponsored giveaway from @bridgeandburn | reading my tea leaves

    So many great button up options for nursing come spring–that we can keep wearing after! (This is where my brain goes while thinking about clothes these days). Thanks for the giveaway!

      Button ups are ideal for nursing! I was pretty excited this fall when my flannels that saw me through last winter came out again.

    I love the look of Bridge & Burn! Following on Instagram and Facebook.

    Yes, you nailed why I prefer summer clothes to winter clothes. In summer, you throw on a sundress and sandals and you’re dressed. In winter, you have to pick the right layers, and the right socks or tights, and the right shoes … Someone just needs to start selling outfits in a box or something…

    I am going to need to buy some good non-blue jean pants soon (potential career transition, fingers crossed). I think those market pants have good potential! Any other recommendations for where to find good quality non-blue jean pants?

  • Reply Heather November 1, 2016 at 2:54 pm

    Thanks Erin. Love Bridge & Burn. The clothes are always so beautiful.

    Love Bridge & Burn!

    Thanks, Erin! They are one of my favorite companies.

    I’m forever loving Bridge & Burn from afar! That chore coat is the stuff of dreams.

  • Reply Rachel November 2, 2016 at 11:20 am

    Oh my, thank you for this fabulous giveaway. I’ve been following B&B ever since you first let us know about them. One day, I will own a Warbler!

    Thanks again. Here’s hoping!

    Inspired to choose some non-black things, especially pants.

  • Reply Cyndi November 3, 2016 at 11:26 am

    Oh! These look lovely!

  • Reply Karen November 3, 2016 at 5:54 pm

    The clothes look lovely, but the sizes for women are curiously small. Bridge and Burn’s size large is a 29 inch waist. That’s a size 12, generally. I would love to support their idea, but this is one of the things that makes me very angry about boutique clothiers.

  • Reply Jaclyn November 4, 2016 at 11:22 am

    Such lovely pieces!

  • Reply cassie November 4, 2016 at 3:42 pm

    well made stuff, love the fabrics! would totally love to get some more.

  • Reply Sarah November 4, 2016 at 3:49 pm

    I am fortunate to live in Portland and be able to support B&B in person – they are top-notch folks.
    I love their clothes for myself and my boyfriend for all of the reasons you listed above. When the temperatures dip, their jackets are the first we reach for.
    I’m also working on adding clothes to my winter wardrobe other than black – wild choices like charcoal, rust, and small navy prints. Their Outsider collection is full of great options.

    That grid fabric! Perusing was a much needed distraction from non-stop NPR election coverage binge listening. I will keep my fingers crossed. I love your blog and book!

    I am actually so disapppointed in Bridge&burn quality. Ordered a shirt recently it wasn’t cheap plus I live In Europe so the cost of delivery and additional custom charge made it even more expensive. I had big hopes for the shirt it came looking beautiful however after wearing it twice and Washington it by hand once it feel apart the sleeve fell from its hem, it was very poorly sawn. Then after later inspecting I read it was made in China….

    • Reply Erin Boyle November 5, 2016 at 2:25 pm

      Hi Joanna! So sorry to hear that you had a bad experience. That must have been so disappointing! I know they do outsource much of their production, but I’m sorry to hear that the construction of that shirt was substandard! I hope you were in touch with them directly about that. Warmest, E.

      • Reply Joanna November 6, 2016 at 6:32 am

        Thanks Erin. It is obviously not our fault!:) i love the pieces you present here. It is only sad that while being convinced you support small business and invest in sustainable clothing which will last, you end up with produce by a low-paid Chinese worker item. Yes I did but still awaiting their response. Thanks a lot Erin!

    I’ve never heard of this brand before, and I’m so happy to have discovered it! Swooning over the Bea navy floral print top.
