Houndstooth Coatigan (+ Ann Taylor Extra 60% Off Sale)


If you placed an order yesterday, you can try calling Ann Taylor (or using the live chat tool) to request a price adjustment. Just know that AT is unpredictable in how they handle these requests, so you may need to reorder. And apologies for the less-than-ideal timing of this week’s sale post. If you ordered something on final sale and AT won’t price adjust, e-mail me and we can talk next steps.


One new addition that landed in Ann Taylor’s sale section this week is this super versatile Houndstooth Belted Coatigan. As reviewed in this post, this coatigan is an excellent work-to-weekend piece for transitional weather and effortlessly upgrades any basic neutral ensemble.

The material is medium-weight (surprisingly substantial for 60% Viscose/40% Nylon, which I associate with legging fabric) and drapes well (on account of the Viscose, probably). And the fit is true to size, though the sleeves feel a little tighter relative to the flowier fit of the piece.

For those who are looking to update their work wardrobes for spring, I’d recommend browsing the Ann Taylor sale section; dozens of new styles were added this week, and sales styles are currently an extra 60% off online until the end of today (02/26/2020); no code needed, discount reflects at checkout. Also on sale now is the Faux Leather Short Trench Coat that I own and like quite a bit. The quality is extremely reasonable for the price.

Some more sale picks: Cozy Turtleneck Sweater (the “Cool Onyx” in petite sizes is $10.35 with the extra 60% off promotion), Long Boyfriend Cardigan (extremely well-reviewed), Floral Full Skirt (a really gorgeous shade of orange-red; bold but not a “in-your-face” way. Pair with a Balloon Sleeve Sweater in the same color), Colorblock Mock Neck Sweater Dress (love the “Yellow Plume” colorway), Side Button Sweater (the side buttons and slightly-cropped fit add a touch of fun), and Plaid Chesterfield Coat (I bought this for my mom a few weeks ago and she now wears it all the time; thinking maybe I need one myself).


In other sale news, if you like sweets, don’t miss out on the Godiva up-to-50%-off sale mentioned in this week’s sale roundup. The 20-pc Assorted Chocolate Biscuit Gift Box is not in Valentine’s Day packaging and is still full-price in retail stores. The batch that I picked up had July 2020 expiration dates so I’ve stockpiled them to get through the final stretch of winter.


Happy shopping!
