So first, I got the Outward Bound Jacket in wish blue, on ebay, $45 for a new one! Lol! I love it. This jacket retailed for $188 I believe, and came out in December 2010. I tried it on in the store at the time but didn't want to spend that much on it. I later bought it in white when it went on sale for $100. I have to admit that I don't wear it that often, but I really love the fit and style of this jacket and pack it with me every time I go somewhere cooler. It's actually lightweight enough to wear in LA as well on chillier nights. I couldn't pass up the deal to get the beautiful wish blue color for $45 only!
I got this jacket in size 4, which is my normal size and it fits loosely so there's definitely room to layer underneath.
The back of the jacket is one of my favorites because the lines are so flattering:
I can't believe someone had this jacket for more than 3 years without wearing it lol... it's so pretty!
The side of the jacket has these venting things:
The side zippers can be completely unzipped to expose the inside. These zippers on my white jacket are kind of broken. Sometimes I zip them up and then they pop open anyways. But I think it really only happens when I wear something bulky under it. Still though, the zipper is pretty cheap. Let's hope this one doesn't break.
This print would be pretty as crops!
However, my order literally arrived like this... clearly a return and they didn't even bother to fold it up nicely when they sent it to me! So I got a scrunched up ball! Ugh! Damn you Lulu!
It's really nice though. I like this one.
I really like this shade of blue. I have some lighter blue tops, but I always gravitate towards darker shades like wish blue and cadet blue. They match my Nike Frees in violet really well too so outfits are always easy to put together around this color.
