~ Fine-Striped V-Neck Cardigan Sweater, Ivory/Navy, Medium ~
When I originally saw this cardigan and felt it, I thought it was cotton but it’s actually Merino Wool. The wool is very fine making the cardigan thin and not feeling like the Tippi. I know we are in Winter but the lightweight feel of this will be a great transition into Spring. The other color in this is Ivory/Ash which is light gray. I prefer the Ivory/Navy.
The length hit at the hips on me and though the sleeves are a little long I felt comfortable in my normal Medium.
~ Striped Boatneck Tunic, Small, Navy/Ivory ~
My store only had a few left of this tunic in both the Navy and the Slate/Black. And I know why. It’s amazingly comfortable and the stripes are a good width apart. It’s cotton and has a sweater texture but isn’t super thick or thin. The lone reviewer only states it the perfect mix between a tee and sweater and I agree. I felt more comfortable in the Medium (reviewing later) but looking back at these pics the Small doesn’t look too bad on me. At $55, it’s a great deal and something I will probably wear at least twice a week. I’m rotating between 5 sweaters right now and don’t feel like wearing anything else in my closet. This will be good to break up the routine.
~ Lookout Highrise in Sanford Wash, size 29 ~
I like the Lookout jeans in general though prefer the crop version, if it’s available. I ended up tucking these under about 1 1/2 inches so they didn’t bunch at the bottom. The 29 fit me just fine and I like this darker wash with a limited amount of fading. I am looking for new jeans that are not skinny but not overly wide-leg. I still love my Wide-Leg Crop pairs I have an am hoping to find something similar to those but at a floor length.
Right now the Gemma Flats in Stripe are in-store only. My store received a few pair and they are lovely. I used to have the Factory Addie Loafer in stripe but never wore them. I did size down to a 6 1/2 and they fit much better than my size 7 Glitter. The 7s fit but are a little loose. The 6 1/2 still has the length but don’t feel as wide. They are absolutely adorable IRL though. As much as I like the Gemma in Stripe I really don’t think I’ll wear them enough.
What do you think of these striped items? Are the Gemma’s so cute?
