Merry Monday, everyone! Hope you had a great weekend full of Super Bowl shenanigans! Here’s what I wore on Saturday when the sun was shining and it was warm enough that I didn’t need a jacket (until later in the day, coincidentally when we took these photos, when it got chilly, quick…luckily you can’t tell I was gunning to run back in the car and crank the heat in these pics). And yay(!) to jeans with destroyed knees that actually hit my knees. A rare occurrence for the short-legged!
I’m a big fan of the idea of “the perfect “. The perfect shirt (which for me right now is the Banana Republic non-iron). The perfect jean (the Rag & Bone Preston is my current favorite). The perfect tee (still looking). Etc. It’s this idea that has intrigued me with Everlane and their emphasis on quality basics without the high markups.
It took me way too long to try Everlane, mostly because I knew their blouses weren’t going to fit me as well as petite offerings from mall brands…the same reason why I haven’t gone completely Equipment crazy despite their great silks. But now that my hands have touched Everlane’s soft silk crepe, I’m considering a slouch-renaissance for the silks in my closet. With a fit similar to the slimmer Equipment Brett blouse (Everlane is a tad wider in the torso, yet shorter in the sleeve and overall length), I’m quite impressed by both the quality and the price. Note that the Everlane rounded-collar shirt runs smaller than the pointed-collar shirt. I’m wearing the round-collar shirt in size xs.
