Update: 40% off outerwear, boots, sweaters and more!
Since I made a few purchases after I first published this post, I thought this deserved a little updating! I always find sizing insights SO helpful, so if you’re in the market for some new Fall/Winter goodies, here’s what worked for me:
Teddy Coat – 25% off (pictured above):
Finally a Teddy Coat made for petites! I got the XSP and the fit is AWESOME. I’m not totally sold on the color/versatility, but that’s really only because I’m comparing it to the one pictured below. If you’ve specifically been wanting a teddy coat, I highly recommend this one!
Faux Fur Coat – 40% off (pictured below):
This coat doesn’t come in petite, but sizing down to the XXS worked great for me! I love that it’s super cozy, but the style is also really verastile. You can dress it up for a night out, or dress it down with casual clothes – plus black goes with everything. I’m definitely keeping this one!
Lodge Coat – 40% off
I tried on the Lodge Coat in a Petite 2, and even though I decided not to get it, you definitely need to know about it! In my opinion, it feels like a more petite friendly version of the cocoon coat. It’s a little shorter, a little less bulky (especially around the neck), and generally a better fit. I have 2 other wool coats at home that are still in good shape, but if I didn’t, this one definitely would have come home with me. Strongly recommend!
A few other sale favorites this time around:
Hey guys! I just wrapped up my trip to Northern California with California Walnuts and I can not WAIT to tell you about it! First of all, it was such a treat to spend time with Gaby from What’s Gaby Cooking the past few days – she is the nicest, most down to earth, awesome gal ever. Plus, going to the walnut orchards and learning all about how they’re grown and harvested was such a unique and interesting experience. I feel so lucky I got to be here!
But about this post… I honestly had no intention in posting about the J.Crew Sale, but since I’m not quite ready to publish my post about the best guest dresses for Fall/Winter weddings, I thought I’d throw this one up! Plus, 40-50% off MONTHS before Black Friday is kind of huge. I’ve been eyeing their Teddy Sherpa Coat ever since it launched on the site, and I finally pulled the trigger! (I got in pink, but after an insta-stories poll, I’m debating also ordering a brown one…)
But besides having awesome markdowns, they also have a ton of petite options! Not just items that look good on petites, ACTUAL petite sizes. Hallelujah!! Obviously, we could all buy the entire site during a sale like this, so I tried to stick to a small selection of items that are really worth it. AKA COATS. J.Crew does coats unlike any other retailer out there – they just do.
And I know it can be intimidating to order a bunch of coats online, but most stores don’t have a ton of petite sizes to try on. Trust me, I don’t usually order multiple coats on a whim, but at 40% off, I couldn’t resist! Plus, I ordered for in-store pickup, so I can try them all on right there and return the ones that don’t work before ever leaving the store. Highly recommend doing it that way – I feel way less frivolous that way!
