The last month or two I’ve had several small gatherings where I wanted to get dressed up. It’s a different type of dressy these days, but I always reach for a flowy piece from my closet. With that being said, I find Ulla Johnson’s designs give me the comfort, ease, and simplicity I’m looking for.

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.
