I posted the infamous “AMAZON JACKET” to my Instagram over the weekend and got so many ??? and feedback around it that I figured I would dedicate an entire blog post to it. The coat has been dubbed the “NYC Mom Coat” making it’s way from pre school drop offs and sidewalks all the way from the UES to Brooklyn. (lol) I first saw the “coat” in person on a fellow upper west side mama at my local bakery (go figure). She had it in olive and it looked so comfy and at the same time stylish & cute. I decided to purchase it a few weeks ago because my regular winter coat unfortunately had already been getting a bit tight with the growing bump and I’m not sure how much longer I have left in it. The Orolay coat was a budget friendly option that expands on the sides (perfect for a pregnant belly) and is not actually a “maternity coat”. It comes in 5 different colors! Scroll down for more details about size/fit etc.
PS– another one of my mom staple favorites was just re-stocked today aka The Dudley Stephen’s Cobble Hill Turtleneck in BLACK (pictured above) plus a whole new slew of colors/and sizes just hit their website today at noon! Hurry because sizes are going to fly!

HOW DOES THE COAT RUN SIZE WISE? I would say the jacket runs either TTS or to order one size smaller. I choose to size down to an XS (normally I’m a small) because of the zippers on the side. You can unzip them to create more room. It’s available on Amazon Prime. So you can always order two sizes and return whichever doesn’t fit.
ARE YOU HAPPY WITH THE COLOR? I went with the beige because I already have a black winter puffer coat. The beige goes great with leggings, denim etc… I also like the black and olive. Not a huge fan of the Navy & grey.
IS IT BULKY IN PERSON? well.. my husband jokes that it looks like I’m wearing a really comfy sleeping bag lol… but I’m into it. I don’t think its to bulky but it’s not a “fitted” coat by any means.
