I ordered this tee from Everlane’s
on a whim since I had a bit of
and was pleasantly surprised with the fit. As a general rule, if Everlane describes something as slim fit, I order one size up and when they describe something as loose-fitting, I size down. That worked well with this tee, as well – I’m wearing a Medium and the fit is just right. The banded collar and sleeves and mustard stripes make this feel very summer-in-the-70s, and I love the contrast between it and this thrifted maroon skirt. The combination is pretty close to my alma mater’s Garnet and Gold.
Also, a quick note on my
* flats: I’ve had these for a couple months now and they’re not holding up that well. Sseko Designs keeps making the mistake of using soft lambskin for their flats and it’s just not hearty enough to stand up to regular (mostly inside) wear. That being said, their suede options and sandals tend to hold up a bit better and they’re doing a series of anniversary sales this week, so sign up for their email list or follow them on Instagram to see if you can snag a deal.
(If you’re still thinking about dyeing your hair with henna and red tea
a couple weeks ago, here is what it looks like about 4 weeks in. Still noticeably red, but the color is more subtle.)
