Tweed and Toile Is On The Move....

Long time no post!  It happened accidentally, I didn't post for a couple of weeks...and now weeks have turned into months.  and I've decided that at least for the time being, I'm going to take a more extended break.  That being said, even though I'm not posting here, I am posting my "ootd" on Instagram.  So if you're interested, follow me there (TWEEDANDTOILE) to see what I'm purchasing and wearing.

Here's what you will find from today's post....

Thanks for being such great followers and friends!  I hope we can keep in touch, just in a different place!

Flashback Friday

Hi all!  Yesterday, as part of "Throwback Thursday", I posted this picture on Instagram, but I thought that I would share it here as well, via "Flashback Friday".  My fashion sense has changed a bit, don'tcha think?!  (However, I have to say that I loved that shirt...loved, I tell you!)  and the hair...that's a whole other story!

Review: J Crew Skinny Utility Chino

My Skinny Utility Chinos arrived today from J Crew.  and even though they were backordered, I was able to snag them with the last 30% off promo...bringing the cost to $62 and change.  They retail for $89.50.
They are made of 98% cotton and 2% spandex.  and I would say the fit is tts.  I went with a size 2, which is the smaller of my J Crew pant sizes.  I am wearing the Tuscan Olive.

Also, the inseam measures 29 inches.  and I am 5' 5" for reference.

I think they are super cute and will be a great alternative to traditional skinny jeans.  Have you given these a try?  If so, what were your thoughts?
