East Clothing – A Jacket Full Of Spice

Today I’m sharing with you a jacket from East Clothing. Have you bought from East before?
I always pop in for a browse on my visits to Covent Garden, one of my favourite places to while away an afternoon, especially in summer.

I have chosen this one called the Anokhi Amrita quilted jacket. I loved the splashes of Red in the jacket and did intend to wear Red trousers of a similar shade, but then decided to go for a more casual look. 

East clothing was born in 1994 starting in a shop in Fulham road and has grown from strength to strength. Eastern prints in gorgeous colours made by artisans worldwide.

Pairing the jacket with my trusty bootcut jeans and a Navy long sleeved T created a comfortable stylish look. The necklace was also kindly given by East and I love the boldness of it. It really sets off the look.

The jacket is quilted, and actually a lot warmer than it looks. The material is hand block printed in India.
 I’m so pleased that the sun has shone today. So much nicer to show this off than all of the Grey days we’ve had of late. 

What do you think about the chunky necklace? This is quite a bold statement piece for me, but I am loving it. Petites can wear bold!
I look forward to hearing your thoughts. Have a great week everyone. Fingers crossed the sun keeps shining!

    Ah Laurie, you're going to have to take me shopping and share some of your fab brands in person! Love this jacket and the necklace. Thanks for sharing with #PoCoLo

      Oh that would be great! I'm up for that anytime Stephanie. xx

    Absolutely perfect! It looks like you just woke up and threw thing together naturally. If you did – would you teach me how to do that because it's a skill I definitely don't have.

      Thank you so much Shelley. That's a huge compliment! I'm always willing to help! Anytime! Just contact me xx

    I truly enjoyed this combination. The colors of your quilted jacket are beautiful and I really like the casual way you chose to style it. You look amazing in flares!

    I know you say you're petite, but this outfit makes you look long and lean. Man, your legs like a mile long! I'm a petite and I would love my legs to look long. I love the jacket on you, and the way that you paired it up in a casual style. The necklace is gorgeous and looks perfect with this outfit.

      Aw Thank you Nikki! It's all about proportion styling! I'm only 5'2 x

    Gorgeous jacket and it looks fab with the jeans. I haven't worn bootcut/flared jeans for so long. They are such a classic smart look. I don't know why I don't! #pocolo

    • February 18, 2017 / 11:19 pm

    Gorgeous. The necklace and jacket go so well together. I have chunky necklace from about 5 years ago. I wore it in the summer and called it my accidental boho look.

    • February 18, 2017 / 11:13 pm

      Thank you Anna! I normally wear smaller items because of my small frame, but I'm getting used to wearing these larger pieces.x

  20. February 17, 2017 / 5:00 pm

    Very smart indeed!

    I have a trip to London planned in the middle of March and I'm so excited! It's been 11 years since I was first there. I do remember going to Covent Garden, though, and loving it! I love the jacket! So colourful!

    Lovely jacket Laurie, it is perfect for Spring 🙂 Love your jeans too and how you styled this outfit. Popping over now to check the jacket out. Thanks for linking up with us today.

    • February 15, 2017 / 10:33 pm

      Please do Ruth. It's beautiful stuff . Good to see you here x

  28. February 14, 2017 / 11:47 pm

    So glad you took the jacket in a casual direction, so perfect. It's a pretty and versatile jacket and suits your colouring. I used to be an avid East shopper when earning. I don't fit into a lot of my East clothes now, but the necklaces still fit :-).

    • February 15, 2017 / 10:30 pm

      Have you looked lately Mary? I'm sure there is a lot that would suit you. I really like the brand for the accessories. I could drool over them all day! Particularly their silk scarfs x

    • February 16, 2017 / 1:05 pm

      I'm not an earner any more :-(. I'm also a techy moron. I tried to follow the link-up instructions … epic fail. Help!

  29. February 14, 2017 / 9:54 pm

    That jacket is fabulous! I love the casual way you've styled it with flare jeans!

  30. February 14, 2017 / 6:43 pm

    Laurie—this outfit is perfection for a casual day!! I'm a huge fan of statement necklaces and shocked that you consider it bold!! I think it looks like it's the perfect scale for the print of that jacket!!

    • February 14, 2017 / 10:39 pm

      Thank you Jodie. I have been admiring necklaces like these on various websites. I wondered if they would over power my small frame. I'm glad that I took the plunge. There will be more! x

    • February 14, 2017 / 10:24 pm

      Thank you Pam! Thank you so much for stopping by x
