Toad & Co is ready for fall with some closet staples that will be perfect for any fall-weather trip you might have planned. Lightweight enough to be packable yet warm enough to keep you comfortable indoors and out, these two pieces will be coming along on all my autumn trips.
Oh. My. These pants are so comfortable and so cute. They have just a hint of elastic, so I can really move in them (they’re 68% Organic Cotton 30% Tencel 2% Elastane) and the wide leg aspect doesn’t make me look boxy or make my shape balloon out. They’re very flattering, even though I’m short at 5’4″ and wide-leg styles don’t usually look great on me. The 25.5″ inseam meaks that for me, they’re closer to ankle-length than crop pant length, and they look fantastic paired with lifestyle sneakers.
The organic cotton makes this pant really soft and supple, and I feel great knowing it’s an eco-friendly pick. They feel comfy enough to wear on a plane or during a road trip but nice enough to tour a museum or eat at a cafe. The waistband has flexform technology and I like the high-rise waist. Have I mentioned how comfortable these pants are? And they’re moisture-wicking so my usual food spills are a non-issue even when I don’t have access to laundry facilities.
Pick up a pair in navy, beetle (dark green), starfish (light tan), or brown sugar (cinnamon brown) for $85.
This hoodie isn’t new to Toad & Co, but it is newly back and improved. This microfleece half-zip is insanely soft and is lightweight enough not to feel claustrophobic (or is that just me, with fleece items?). I wore it for about 48 hours straight during a fall camping trip, then again on an early morning flight (those cabins can get chilly). I love the earth-toned colors you have to choose from, and the fact that you get a three-piece hood and a kangaroo pocket. The cuffs and hem are contrasting, as well as the edging around the pocket and hem, and the 25″ length is just long enough to fully cover (even with a tee underneath) but not get in the way of a day hike or sprint for the gate.
At $110, this is a piece that looks timeless, and can remain in your closet for years.
