Toad & Co Clothing Review
Sponsored by Zappos
I can’t believe it’s already December! I spent the post-Thanksgiving holiday weekend cleaning out my closet and doing a massive wardrobe haul to put away my summer clothes and transition to my comfy, cozy knits.
One of the recent sweaters I keep wearing over and over is this classic knit from Toad and Co. The soft beige shade pairs well with anything and the slim fit, shaker-stitch style is the perfect look for chilly days. I love that the sweater neck is high without being confining (I can’t wear a turtleneck for more than a couple hours without constantly pulling at my neck!) and the rib knit sleeves on this Toad&Co sweater are extra cozy.
Best of all, the sweater is made from 100% merino wool. When buying winter sweaters, I’ve learned over the years to pay close attention to fabric and to spend a little extra on high quality, well made knit sweaters. Merino wool is one of the best fabrics for winter sweaters, as its soft to the touch, warm to wear and naturally wicks away moisture so you won’t overheat. It’s also extra fine to prevent itch.
Toad and Co
Toad and Co is a new-to-me brand, with a fun motto from “trail to tavern”. Founded in 1991 originally under the name Horny Toad, the socially conscious company offers lifestyle clothing that transitions well for both outdoor travel and everyday indoor wear. I’ve heard fantastic things about Toad and Co dresses from travelers on the road so I was quite curious to test them out.
Originally I was going to choose a dress, but then I found out that all of Toad & Co’s sweaters are machine washable! I hate having to dry clean so this was a game changer. Toad & Co recommends wearing clothing multiple times before wash in order to save on both the environment and to prolong each garment’s life. Just make sure to use cold water and line dry your sweaters on a flat surface afterwards to prevent stretching or shifting the shape!
If you like the look of the Tupelo sweater that I’m wearing in these photos, you can check out Toad & Co’s full clothing line here. They have similar tunics, cardigans, vests and jackets that all look extra cozy for the winter months ahead.
