Toad & Co travel wear for spring

I love Toad & Co for their eco-friend practices (hello, sustainable materials and eco-packaging!) as much as for their fashion sense. Plus, their clothing is always very comfortable, practical for travel days, and interesting and fresh. If I get a compliment in an airport or at a hotel, I can be almost certain I’m wearing a Toad & Co tunic, dress, or shirt because of it. And now, enter two new items for spring:

Touchstone overalls: Oh my. We already know overalls are utilitarian, but the way Toad & Co spins them, they’re also super cute. Made of 79% Organic Cotton, 19% Tencel and 2% Elastane, the Touchstone the weave is stretchy, soft and lightweight. No stiff feel here. They’re durable, but you can also cozy up for that movie on the airplane, too. The key is the hink of spandex. Plus, pockets. Lots of pockets.

Forget the baggy overall look. The Touchstone is almost, but not quite, fitted, with a ruched back and slim look. You get adjustable straps and a narrow, straight leg with an inseam of 27 inches cuffed or 28.5 inches uncuffed. It comes in two colors: falcon brown or duck green. I love the green, which is lighter than olive. Pick from sizes XS-XL. I wear a size 8, and the medium fits me just fine. Find these overalls on Toad & Co and other online retailers for $125.

Cairn popover tunic shirt: Your new best friend to pair with any pair of leggings or tights, the Cairn popover tunic is soft, lightweight, doesn’t need any ironing, and always looks great. True it its name, it has snaps (pops) instead of buttons, which go halfway down for a true tunic look. It’s made of 100% recycled cotton, which is completely in line with Toad & Co, and recycled polyester.

You get a hidden snap pocket, on-seam hand pockets (yes!) and it’s a very classic fit that means the tunic is roomy without being boxy. The length is 29.5 inches, and I’ve worn it with both leggings and slim-fitting jeans. Pick up a tunic for $90 in one of three plaid color schemes: pink sand, oatmeal, or deep navy. Perfect for your next travel day.
