Lina Rennell cotton sweater | small/medium (gift to review from Beklina)
Rachel Comey Dover clogs
I have worn this sweater 5-6 times since I received it a couple weeks ago; I almost always have it with me. Angelina (Lina Rennell) from Beklina sent it to me to try out and let you know what I think. Perfect timing, actually, because earlier this summer I gave my sister an old lightweight cardigan (also from Beklina, interestingly) that no longer fit me, but had been my go-to lightweight cardigan for summer A/C.
And what do I think? It’s heavenly: soft, light, nicely constructed, perfectly cropped, and just enough to keep the A/C chill away during the summer months. Also, and I might be a little ashamed to admit this, it’s the ideal layer to just keep in your tote all the time. You know, for emergencies. The color is simple and rather neutral, but a nice “nude for me” easy color to wear with everything.
The price is also incredibly reasonable ($90) and as with all things Angelina carries at Beklina, it’s thoughtfully produced; this style is “lovingly” made in Nepal from 100% cotton. The cardigan comes in other colors, and she also has a few other of these light cotton styles: a short sleeve “tee” and a dress.
