At the end of August, along with some other bloggers, I got a chance to visit Toggi HQ and preview the upcoming A/W Collection. It felt slightly unusual to be looking forward to Christmas in August, but I embraced the festive feels and came away from the day feeling so excited to don some cosy coats and scarves and hats. Not to mention how ruddy LOVELY all of the Toggi team were. We were taken through the new collection by the design team, they took us through the thinking behind each piece and I was taken back by just how much thought and care goes into each item. As well as the fashion and design elements of the production process, they also really focus on the practically of each piece ensuring that there is never style over substance.
The Toggi A/W did not disappoint. There is a huge range of really gorgeous pieces and over the next few weeks I’ll show you some of my faves.
Kicking off with some practical heroes. The Allerton waterproof jacket is a winner for me, it is rare that you can find a waterproof that is as fitted as this one, along with being water tight and windproof. I got mine in this colbalt blue, but you can also get it in bright pink too (LOVING the bright colours!).
This jacket is going to be great for Autumn on the farm, there have already been a few really wet days where its still been quite mild, so no need for a heavy coat yet. So I’ll be wearing this jacket alot whilst zipping around the farm on the quad bike. I’m also starting up running again, and this jacket will be great for rainy days as its really lightweight.
The next ‘practical hero’ I’ve been wearing are the Kodiac steel toe slip on boots. I literally can’t believe that I’m THIS excited about steel cap toe boots, but honestly these are an absolute foot saver. I’ve been working alot with the sheep and cows up in pens over the last few weeks and my feet have been constantly stamped on by the animals. The difference its made wearing these boots is a dream. My perception of steel cap toe boots would be that they would be clunky and really heavy, but these are unbelievably light! So much so that I thought I’d been sent the wrong boots at first before reading the box!
