First, apologies for not getting outfit pictures of my two newest Everlane sweaters, but I’ll give you my preliminary reviews of each:
Ribbed wool turtleneck sweater : I love this, I got it in a medium and it might be a bit large on me, but I didn’t want it to be super-snug either, and it’s not. It fits well where it counts (around the hips, shoulders), and is a little bunchy around the waist, but almost EVERYTHING is on me. It’s a nice light weight wool, you’ll have to wear a cami underneath since it’s rather sheer, but that makes it an excellent layering piece. I’ve not worn it yet, but probably will this weekend.
Waffle knit tunic : I LOVE THIS WAFFLE KNIT. Better than the chunky knit, actually. It’s softer, more pliable, and more interesting. That said, this sweater is just meh on me. I got the small, and the length is okay on me, if a little long, and the fit good, overall, but I wish the sleeves were slimmer. The top of the sweater is just large on me, but what else is new…I’m debating a couple of things: exchanging it for an XS, or exchanging it for the cropped turtleneck sweater. I think I’ll exchange it for the shorter sweater – I’d love to have a nice, slimmer tunic sweater (all my tunic sweaters are oversized), but this one isn’t it, and I don’t think it would be it even in the XS; the sleeves are just cut too big.
Now, I’d like to ask you – what are you reading? watching? listening to?
I just finished watching Broadchurch and Making a Murderer on Netflix, now I’m working on Jessica Jones. I might not have watched Broadchurch if not for the recommendation of a friend, but I enjoyed it SO MUCH, and miss it, honestly. Making a Murderer was frustrating and shocking, but absolutely worth watching.
I’m reading a zillion things at the moment, including all things Joan Didion, and The Liar’s Club by Mary Karr (I’m on a memoir kick).
And I’m listening to The Chopin Project, among all other things
What are you reading? watching? listening to? What do you recommend?? What are your plans for the long weekend?
Leo and I are spending the weekend in Fort Worth on the first of our “36 Hours in the USA & Canada” trips. I bought this book for us as a family Hanukkah present and we decided to stick close to home for our first trip (REALLY close to home LOL). Even though we live so close, we haven’t spent any time in Fort Worth, so I’m excited. We’re following it pretty strictly, going to the recommended restaurants, museums, etc., to see if we like the format. I’m excited about it, and will report back on Monday!
