I love that we all seem to have adopted LSJ (light spring jacket) as part of our wardrobe nomenclature here at Grechen’s Closet! Even more, I am LOVING the actual LSJ. I wore my Eileen Fisher jacket Monday and Tuesday to Atlanta for Passover, and then when we arrived home yesterday and my new Atlelier Delphine jacket was waiting for me, I put it on and headed out to run errands.
I was considering getting the Elizabeth Suzann Emma kimono, but the lack of pockets held me back. What I love the most about the LSJ is that it’s something I can throw on and ADD pockets to whatever I’m wearing. Like a James Perse dress, leggings, or my Elizabeth Suzann Cecilia pants.
The Atelier Delphine jacket is VERY LARGE, as it is meant to be, but comfortable, and not entirely overwhelming. I prefer the square pockets on the front of the jacket to the side pockets on my Eileen Fisher jacket, and I love the shawl collar on this jacket. The cotton is mid-weight, so not light enough to wear outside in the summer, but it will be wonderful for wearing in air conditioning, and for car travel.
See my recent post on LSJ’s for more great options from Garmentory and otherwise.
What do you think? Can you get behind a LSJ for transitional weather? or do you wear one more frequently?
