What I’m wearing right this second. I think I’ll normally post my outfit-of-the-day selfies as what I wore the day before, it’s too hard to post the day of, especially on my 9:45 Pure Barre days. But here’s today!
I’m very sorry the harper tunic in wool isn’t available from Elizabeth Suzann right now, because it’s AMAZING. I asked for the one size and I’m very happy with the size: the sleeves are a very good length (I have them rolled up a little here) and the neckline is perfect. It’s quite long in the back, but it’s meant to be.
I wore this exact outfit driving home from Atlanta last weekend, and was ridiculously comfortable. Well, as comfortable as one can be sitting in a car for 12 hours…
I also wore it a few days at my mom’s, so it’s getting quite a bit of wear. I haven’t washed it yet, but it did come with a sample of wool shampoo (I usually use the Laundress wool & cashmere shampoo) and a sweater stone though, which is handy. This wool doesn’t really pill much at all, which I find impressive. It’s tightly woven “felted” wool, in sort of a herringbone pattern. Beautifully made, as are all Elizabeth Suzann pieces. And the pocket. It’s the most wonderful thing.
The sweater is hard to layer because of the sleeves, so I reserve it for warmer days. It’s in the low 60’s and sunny here, so I’ll need a scarf also, but I should be warm enough with just the sweater. You could layer it over a substantial turtleneck though, I’ve tried it with my brushed jersey James Perse turtleneck, which is very warm.
What are you wearing today? Did anyone get an Elizabeth Suzann wool piece before the trouble with sourcing started? (I actually don’t know any details besides what a few of you have told me, but I’m going to try and find out more from my contact at ES and let you know. Apparently the wool is returning soon).
*and since you can see my socks here, which I hate, they’re by Smart Wool. The ones I’m wearing now are the hide & seek, which I usually wear only with boots or my converse sneakers so they don’t show. I have many many pairs of secret sleuth style that I wear with all my shoes in the fall/winter.
