I wish Everlane had made this exact top again, I really love it. Mine is about a year old, and is still available in a size XS. Their older linen styles were better-made in my opinion, the seams are folded under and stitched down, so they don’t pop-out (which probably doesn’t make sense, but is what drives me crazy about my new Everlane linen tees), and I just love this longer style with the long side slits. And by now, with so much wear/washing, this top is ridiculously soft.
And then, I could go on and on about this skirt, but I won’t. I’ll just say it’s exactly the right midi-length pencil skirt for me. A skirt this narrow and this length takes a bit of getting used to walking in, but I’ll have you know, at one point during my day I had to “hustle” across an intersection, and did so easily, EVEN in these slides! The skirt also rides up a bit when you walk, which makes it easier to walk in.
Anyway, if you’re a James Perse fan, or even not, yet, this is an essential piece, and one that will come in handy for so many situations, and last for many years. I wore my older one a lot, until I didn’t fit me anymore, and it still never showed signs of wear, so I was able to pass it on to someone else who would appreciate it.
