I got this James Perse sweater a few weeks ago with credit from Shopbop and have worn it quite a bit. I was looking for something lighter in color, cropped, with texture, a turtleneck, and warm: check. AND, the most amazing thing, and not mentioned anywhere, is that the sleeves are LINED. A Brilliant touch, in my opinion. It’s actually a nice jersey cotton lining, and thick, so there’s no need to wear a long sleeve tee under this.
I was sort of impressed by that detail, but then again, James Perse is pretty good at adding details that make things fit better, and more wearable. If you’re very sensitive, the wool might be a little scratchy for you, but I don’t have a problem with it. I am wearing Everlane’s ryan tank underneath, and would definitely recommend layering a cami or tank underneath, but nothing with sleeves.
Anyway, it’s very warm, and comfortable for mid-50’s and sunny. Although I wouldn’t recommend wearing it while drinking, it can get VERY warm that way LOL. Not that I’ve done it. Well, I only had one glass of gluhwein, but man…I was feeling it. But then again, I’m a lightweight…
The sweater does shed a little, but not as badly as you’d think. And it pills a teeny bit under the arms, and where things rub against it, but again, it’s easy to deal with. It’s a great piece for milder weather, since it would be tough to wear under a coat unless it was very roomy in the sleeves, and as I’ve said, it’s quite warm.
That’s it for 2015. I’d like to say I’ve got everything figured out for 2016, but I don’t. No big announcements, or changes. No significant plans. I know better. I’ll just enjoying bringing in my thirteenth year blogging, and keep doing what I do…
Happy New Year !!!!!! thank you all.

Happy new year! 🙂
And what would life be like if we had everything figured out already? Maybe less frustrating but also probably boring.
Happy New Year, Grechen! 🙂
The sweater doesn’t look bulky at all, so why would it be difficult under a coat? Or are you referring to warmth level? (The hot flashes have become the bane of my existence! OK, a bit dramatic, but…)
