Anthropologie Toggled Basel Sweater Coat by Fiets Voor 2

Anthropologie Toggled Basel Sweater Coat by Fiets Voor 2

I have a sweater coat addiction.  Each fall/winter Anthropologie has some kind of sweatercoat for sale, if not a few options.  After finding the Toggled Basel Sweatercoat on sale, I grabbed the navy one without hesitation.  I like it. It’s kind of weird that it’s one of those garments that has the faux cuff and hood that make it appear as if you’ve layered your clothes, but regardless, I still liked the sweater. The good – It’s flattering, although it has an A-line shape, and for some this may not be a good look, it decreases the focus on my bust, and falls to a good length. The only downfall, it seems to pill fairly easily. It runs a little large, but allows for tee or a sweater underneath.

Frye Veronica Slouch Boots - Extended Calf

Frye Veronica Slouch Boots - Extended Calf in Brown

I have wide calves.  It sucks.  It sucks to never have owned a pair of knee high boots.  It sucks to see so many cute styles and just keep walking on by, not even bothering to give them a chance.  It sucked when I was in High School and everyone rocked knee high Doc Marten’s and I couldn’t wear them because the laces bulged.  It’s also mortifying to be persuaded by a sales person into trying on a boot in the middle of a Christian Dior store and the two of you are trying to cram you leg into a boot that you know won’t fit.  Yes, that’s me.  As embarrassing as it is to even write this, it’s me.

Hunter Glossy Wedge Ankle Rain Boots

Hunter Glossy Wedge Ankle Rain Boots in Black

I love stores like Nordstrom Rack! Where else can you find a pair of Hunter boots for $49.97?  I tried these on and, wham, instant love.  I love that I can splash around and not worry about where I step on rainy Seattle days!  I can walk on wet grass, mud, well, wait, hopefully that was mud…. Anyways, I can rinse them off, or wash them, whatever.   And it’s a wedge boot that is also really comfortable!  I bought them in black and navy and keep one pair in my car, just in case!  These clean up well with a warm damp cloth and soapy water.  Fantastic!
