Anything that takes me from morning to night is a GO during quarantine! Case in point this quilted Ulla Johnson jacket. I have been wearing a similar quilted version from Ellies & Ivy that I got on my trip to Copenhagen last year. Some more affordable options include this, this, and this by Natalie Martin. For a belted utility look try this & Other stories or this H&M jacket. Mother just got in several new Natalie Martin dresses check them out here, and FRWD is running a 20% off the entire site shop it here
