Fall in Napa Valley // Flattering Plaid Wrap Coat

Chicwish prairie check wrap coat xxs (extra 25% off w/BLK25), J.Brand jeans sz 24 Sam Edelman boots sz 5, Caslon floppy hat, Gucci bag
Now that Fall is pretty much over in the northeast, I'm finding comfort in cute coats to help me get through our long winters! This one has been online for a while, and I was convinced to purchase after seeing it look super cute on a friend. It's fully lined with pockets, the material is thick and warm, and the belted wrap style is forgiving and flattering on all body types. With the extra discount this weekend it's around just $60, and is very good quality for a coat at that price point. I packed it recently for Napa and wore it several times over various outfits!

This jacket just became available this month in size xxs, which I'm so glad I waited for. It's a good fit on me with enough room to layer underneath. If you're in-between sizes, I wouldn't stress too much because the fit is adjustable due to the wrap style. The sleeves on the xxs fit fine on me lengthwise, though are a little wider than what I typically prefer.

My friend Krissy is wearing a size S below - she's self-proclaimed petite and busty, thus with a different set of fit challenges! She recommends this jacket due to the flattering deeper V-neckline, which can be adjusted with the wrap style.

I've bought several things from Chicwish over the years (sometimes under a friend's name, so I can truly try out the shipping & returns process) and often get questions about shopping there. I find their items can be hit or miss on me, but there are definitely good finds to be had. To avoid having to pay return shipping costs (they do have a US-based return address), my suggestion is to stick with pieces that have at least a few customer reviews or photos. Also be prepared for free shipping to take a few weeks coming from Asia. I usually pay for expedited shipping in order to have a tracking number, just to be safe.

// !function(d,s,id){var e, p = /^http:/.test(d.location) ? 'http' : 'https';if(!d.getElementById(id)) {e = d.createElement(s);e.id = id;e.src = p '://' 'widgets.rewardstyle.com' '/js/shopthepost.js';d.body.appendChild(e);}if(typeof window.__stp === 'object') if(d.readyState === 'complete') {window.__stp.init();}}(document, 'script', 'shopthepost-script'); //

- Classy tweed coat - (will try to post a photo soon) another affordable coat with no alterations needed! I thought the xs ran very slim throughout the torso and arms, with sleeves that don't even need any hemming on me in sz xs. I wear mine open because it's a little snug to button as a double-breasted coat, but I think it looks better that way anyways (I always have a scarf on, which covers the gap). There are also real, functioning pockets on this coat - you just have to snip the stitches with tiny scissors!

- Gray drape trench - You guys have seen this a ton on my blog in both casual and dressier outfits ... here, here, and here just to name a few. I personally really like it, but I know the silhouette is not for everyone. The sleeves are a dolman / batwing style and the overall cut is more over-sized. I have an xs with the sleeves shortened.

- Winter floral pleated skirt - fits me in xxs with no alterations needed. See my review.

Thank you to Chicwish for partnering on this post.
