a fall giveaway with bridge and burn.

November 7, 2017

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

To celebrate fall, here’s a chance to take home a few thoughtfully made fall arrivals from Bridge & Burn. I took a walk through Prospect Park to show off a few fall favorites from the Portland, Oregon company and now one lucky winner will take home a $300 gift certificate to spend in any way their heart desires (full details below).bridge & burn giveaway | reading my tea leaves

Forever a fan of overalls, I’m especially pleased to be able to show you the latest pair from Bridge & Burn. The slim cut Arlow Charcoal Twill Overalls are made from durable cotton twill, that has a little bit of stretch and a lot of general coziness for fall and winter days.
I’m wearing them here with a button up and clogs, but on the coldest days, I can imagine layering them over some thick scrunchy socks and a cozy sweater. (And not for nothing, but they’d also be just right to slip over a sneaky pair of long johns on wintry walks.)

With the overalls, I’m wearing Bridge & Burn’s Woodrow Olive Donegal button up. I really liked the tailoring on this shirt—the fit felt slim and feminine without being constricting. The deep olive color is flecked with bits of white and the overall look feels warm and rich and perfect for fall. 

On my head, a Bridge & Burn x Tsuyumi wide-brim hat in black. Designed in New York by hat designer Tsuyumi Kumazaki, the wide-brim hat is made from the same 100% waxed cotton canvas that Bridge & Burn uses in their jackets. I can see opting out of an umbrella altogether given this beauty.

Next, I tried on the Erie Black. To fend off the wind and rain, the jacket is sewn from waxed British Millerain canvas that will develop its own unique patina over time and with wear.

The Erie is the most fitted of the Bridge & Burn waxed canvas jackets. The mid-thigh length makes it feel substantial without being oversized.

Like all Bridge & Burn jackets, it comes complete with all of the pockets, snaps, and attention to detail that you might hope for in a piece of well-made outerwear.

Underneath that, I’m in the wool-blend Tate Natural Striped Sweater. The sweater is warm, but not bulky and classic, but not tired. It reminded me, in the very best way, of watching high school football games as a teenager.

What do you think? If you’re in the market for adding something new to your fall wardrobe, Bridge & Burn is offering one Reading My Tea Leaves reader a $300 gift card to shop the collection for themselves.

    I love the overalls, and I had to admit: I’m not an overalls kinda girl. But those look comfy without requiring a pitchfork.

    Question regarding the sweater: is it itchy? Wool sometimes does a number on this uber-delicate skin of mine.


    • Reply ERIN BOYLE November 7, 2017 at 10:00 am

      It’s a wool blend, so it’s not as itchy as some wool sweaters! I’m wearing it here with just a bra underneath, and I wasn’t bothered by it, but if you’re sensitive to wool, you might need a long-sleeve tee under it!

      • Reply Amy November 8, 2017 at 6:44 am

        Thanks, Erin. It’s nice to have the particulars. 🙂

    Hi Erin, I think you just convinced me to try overalls and I like both looks you have on the pictures…I hope I win :)…Though I think I will purchase either way.

    Also…I am traveling to NYC this weekend…Can you please let me know where I SHOULD go in Brooklyn? I was just told that Brooklyn is big!!! Would love a recommendation on where to stop and walk around. Other special area would be good too. Thank you, much!

    Beautiful everything, Erin. Day, you, clothes.

    I don’t know if you’ve ever done a hair product post but I’d love to know. My current hair routine is to wash it and let it dry. And some days that works out and some days it doesn’t. I’d love to hear your thoughts on some simple hair care.

    I would live in those overalls by day and night – so cute! And I love that they’re made in Portland.

    • Reply ERIN BOYLE November 8, 2017 at 10:06 am

      So glad you like them! The overalls are designed in Portland, but I believe they’re produced overseas.

  • Reply Martha November 8, 2017 at 9:44 pm

    I would look so cute in those overalls! Thanks for the chance to win!

    Since I started reading your blog, I’ve scored a few great B&B pieces. Some straight from the company and some secondhand! Excited for the chance to maybe nab a few more before it gets really chilly here.

  • Reply Mathilde November 9, 2017 at 2:44 pm

    I didn’t know this brand and I just love it so much !! Now I need to check if they delivery in France…

    So fun! I am now going to crush on the overalls, bear hug tee shirt and ombre dress, I think htat would make good use of the gift certificate.

  • Reply Kimberly November 9, 2017 at 5:13 pm
