You know what happens when you have “too many” things? Or lots of things you love? You forget how amazing some things are because you’re busy trying to wear all the other things…I just say this because I’d forgotten how incredibly comfortable these Frame Le Garcon jeans are until I wore them for the first time in awhile yesterday. I did have them hemmed a month or so ago because I was tired of the rolled up boyfriend look, so I intended to wear them, but just didn’t. Yesterday I literally wore them all day and didn’t change out of them until I went to bed. Quite a feat for me LOL.
A note on the Patagonia jacket since I haven’t featured it before: I got it at REI when they did their 20% off member coupon before going to Salt Lake City. (THE STORY behind the purchase, in case you don’t remember…) I had to get the size large, which surprised me, but of course I have to fit my hips. Overall, it’s not as big as it could be, which leads me to think that Patagonia tends to run on the smallish side? I don’t have anything else by them, except a raincoat, and I have that in an XL.
(Funny, as I was wearing this jacket – at Costco (Monday is Costco day) – I saw a table full of the hoody version for $159!! So if you’re a Costco member RUN over there and get yourself one. I’m not sure if the hoody version is shorter than mine, but a hood would definitely be nice.)
Anyway, I love the jacket, and wear it often, mostly to walk Dagny and just around – it’s not the most stylish thing out there – and find it quite warm, especially when I wear it over a wool or cashmere sweater. I chose the nano puff because I didn’t think the goose down was necessary, and going forward, I’m really trying to avoid new animal products (including leather) as much as possible. They do have a recycled down version too. The jacket itself is already made with recycled polyester and the insert is 55% recycled. Yay!
