Props (is this still the word kids use these days?) to Banana Republic who designed this long double-breasted houndstooth wool coat in petite sizes. It is such a rarity, even with brands now venturing out to be more accommodating to those of us who don’t fit into “regular” sizing (i.e., tall, plus, petite).
Much to my own surprise, I’ve really taken a liking to these super long duster cardigans. I’m very conscious about the overall length of the items I add to my closet, and while this cardigan can sometimes appear overwhelming on my frame, particularly with flat shoes, I’m just in love with it anyway.
Let’s be real. This is not the outfit I’m wearing this week in Toronto right now. We are in a deep freeze and we got hit with a nice little snowstorm (I can’t complain too much–Newfoundland’s got it bad). I’m heavy on the layers with my Ugg snowboots, the heaviest parka I own, and my warmest hat and mittens. It’s neither cool, nor glamorous.
