Taking my teddy coat out for a spin! This time, casually with some ankle boots and distressed jeans–a typical weekend look, if it’s dry and I don’t need something sturdier on my feet 😉
A few of you were messaging me about the sizing on this teddy coat after I shared a full try-on haul on my Instastories and on the blog. Teddy coats are typically meant to be slightly oversized, so there is definitely already some volume to them. That said, this one comes in S/M and L/XL and I went with the larger size. I found the sleeves kind of short on both, so the larger size fit that much better there, and since I kind of broad in the shoulders, it just looked better in that area as well. The body would have worked in either size, there isn’t a huge difference, and for me, a sweater would have fit under both. Also, I have my sizing/height/etc. listed in the FAQ section on the blog if you ever need to reference it again 🙂
These boots are old but these ones are almost identical! I cannot believe how similar they are. I actually kind of ruined mine a couple years ago when we were visiting our now home under construction. It was snowy and muddy and I got salt all over them as well. Normally I’m pretty good at spraying my boots and trying to keep them nice, but these ones not so much. Anyway, I took a toothbrush and vinegar to them (after trying to ‘wash’ them with water) and it actually worked out quite well. Note to self: don’t use vinegar on a wooden heel, it will totally bleach it!
Sidenote: I cannot link the teddy coat in the widget below because Zara is not part of that (am linking a similar one I love though), however I’ve linked it above and here.
