A month or so ago my local James Perse store participated in a special event and offered a discount for a couple days. I did not leave empty-handed – how could I?? And now, just for you, James Perse is graciously offering free shipping on orders over $250 through 6/25 with code GRECHENJUN17.
Here’s what I got recently:
Relaxed cotton linen workwear pants | I got a size 27, that is TWO SIZES DOWN
I wear them a lot, because they have tons of pockets and are really comfortable. If you want them to be slouchy at all, I would just size down one size, but if you like them to fit, but with room, then size two sizes down. Trust me. I’ll do an outfit post with them this week…
Cotton Linen henley tee | I got a size 0, this runs large, but it’s WONDERFUL
I wore it last under my Ozma raw silk romper, but it’s great because it’s super soft, and I like the blend of cotton/linen so it doesn’t stretch out so much, but it still has the feel of linen. One note about sizing down in this, the v-neck comes up a bit higher on my neck, but I liked the length and the fit around my waist on the size 0 better than the 1 (which is my normal size).
Jersey Surplus jacket | I got a size 2
A really really really great surplus jacket, and like everything James Perse, just fits me perfectly, especially the length. It’s not too long that I can’t wear this with dresses, and it’s not so short it looks cropped. It’s just right.
And of course I can’t recommend the mini canvas tote highly enough, it is my summer purse and holding up nicely. I do wish for a bit more structure sometimes though…
And obviously…the dresses are perfection.
Anything catch your eye?
Those pants look great! Can’t wait to see them on you.
BTW, even though I was going to stop buying (and returning) things from Everlane, I just bought some things in their new summer dress collection today…partially because they actually added a size XL in the skirts. But I’m also a sucker for poplin dresses and have been looking for a full skirt, so there you have it.

I have the blue and the green cross back dresses in my cart 😉 in two different sizes lol
*edited to add – just ordered, the blue in size 6 and the green in size 8 – hopefully one will fit!
i like the new cotton poplin items very much – i hope the full skirt works for you!
After my everlane rant the other day I need to confess that I am very tempted by the cross-back dresses too!

haha! they get me every time…even though i wish they’d stop with so many new arrivals and focus on making better basics, i like to try the new stuff…
