So far this December, it has been pretty mild here in Cincinnati. That is, as of yesterday. It has been in the mid-60’s, but today it’s in the 30’s! Brrrr. With the cold weather moving in, I was in need of a new jacket. When I saw the Hooded Wool Toggle Coat, I knew that was what I wanted. This jacket from Chadwicks of Boston has patch pockets, a removable hood. and a zip front with toggle buttons. I like the toggle buttons, they make the jacket stand out. This coat is made of a wool/polyester blend and it is dry clean only, that is really the only downside, not being able to machine wash.
Removable Button Hood
Chadwicks of Boston Hooded Wool Toggle Coat
I went with a size larger than I normally wear as I wanted to make sure that it fit over my bulky sweaters, and it fits great! The color is a bit lighter than pictured, but I really like the neutral tone. Bring on the cold!
The Hooded Wool Toggle Coat is available in red, forest, dark navy and the color shown, new camel. Sizes available include misses, petite and plus. MSRP $ 109.99
I also received a pair of the Malia Slim Leg Jeans By Jag in the color Dark Shadow. I hate trying on jeans, I really do. So when these arrived, I was all prepared for them to be too long or not fit in the waist or even worse… give me a muffin top! I did order these in a size larger than I needed and boy was I surprised how well they fit.
J Design on Back Pocket
This shape enhancing stretch denim offers a wide waistband with a faux fly. I normally wouldn’t even attempt trying on a slim style, but I wanted a pair a jeans that I could tuck into my boots. Once I tried them on, I really liked how they fit… not too long, sits on my hips so no peep shows when I bend over and no muffin top! The only downside is that these jeans have a very strong chemical smell. I am hoping that the more I wash them it will dissipate. I am so glad I didn’t have to spend time trying on jeans at the store!
The Malia Slim Leg Jeans are also available in Black Void and High Tide. MSRP $69.50
