Happy Friday!!! I received this shirt a little late to post by launch of the new poplin styles, but better late than never. This is the size 8 because I thought it would fit very similar to the silk square shirt I have and wish I had a size bigger. It does NOT fit exactly like the silk shirt – the hem is straight across, not draped in the back, and it has slits up the sides. And since it’s not draped, it “tents” out quite a bit overall, but that’s sort of fun, and provides built in A/C for the summer. BONUS.
The most amazing thing about this shirt is how lightweight it is. It’s surprising, actually, but wonderfully so. I can imagine it would be very comfortable in 80+ degree heat, especially with the air flow LOL. And look, I’m wearing navy 🙂
I do wish the arms were a teeny bit longer; they hit me at a not so flattering place, but no big deal.
Overall, this is another Everlane piece I’d recommend, just keeping in mind it’s slightly cropped, meant to run big, and has slits on the sides. When I’m sitting, the top of the slit comes to the top of my jeans, so no peek-a-boo there. And there’s plenty of coverage in the back. Did anyone order it yet? or any of the other new poplin styles? What do you think?
Oh, so if you’ve read this far, I decided to do a surprise giveaway on yesterday’s post since you guys are so amazing !! You’re taking the “five questions” so seriously, and I love it. Truly, I just thought they would be fun to try and answer myself, and thought to share them, they’re really not meant to be an exercise in closet cleaning or anything, BUT I love doing things like that periodically to remind myself of the things I REALLY REALLY love in my closet, and the things I know I could do without.
So, on Monday I’ll choose a comment from the “Five Questions” post (randomly) to win a new Everlane dipped tote in black (I ordered it just to see it, and I love it, but don’t need it, so I am happy to pass it on!). You do have to actually try and answer the questions though, to be entered to win. Or, leave a comment/linkback to your own blog if you decide to post about them and answer them there. Sorry…but US readers only.
Enjoy your weekend !
