We’ve been Shop Mrs. Jones superfans ever since we discovered her made-for-sneakers-dress. I was hoping Nichole (the designer) would come out with something just as fun for winter, but she’s a one-woman shop, so I had to wait for it.
This Flannel Jumpsuit Is The Cure For Your Sweatpants Blues
Once again proving that Nichole’s inside our heads…she just launched, for the sick-of-sweatpants crowd (yessss), this flannel romper. I’m wearing the stripe, but it’s also available in blue herringbone or plaid.
And it was definitely worth waiting for.
This romper has an oversized fit (duh), and is made from a pretty thick, serious flannel. This is not the thin and drapey Rails “flannel”. Rather, this is hearty stuff, which means, as I found out, that it is actually…warm. It’s not going to replace a snowsuit, but if you fall into the ‘always cold’ category [S raises hand], then this thing is going to get some use.
If you didn’t know, Nichole (the designer), sources all of her fabrics from leftover high-end designer fabrics, helping to close the circle on fabric waste. All pieces are made in a woman-run and -owned factory in NYC (and she’s a woman of color herself).
My mittens are Stormy Kromer mittens, which is kind of a thing in Michigan’s Upper Peninsula. Stormy Kromer is headquartered in the U.P. and have been a family-owned business for more than 100 years. Almost all of their products are still made in the US. You can get my mittens at Amazon, but I recommend checking out Stormy Kromer’s website itself, or pick up a pair at Getz’s in Marquette, MI.
It’s a rather delightful piece to put on in the morning…nice and toasty warm. Especially if you, like me…are getting a little sick of sweatpants.
Hope you guys are staying warm…
Oh hey, Pinners…
