I’m itching for spring, but we’ve been having 25-degree mornings here in Philly, so today’s try-on haul is all over the map. It’s a little shorter than some because I haven’t been home much over the past week or so to take pictures, but I wanted to go ahead and post what I have because next week we’re diving into spring fashion!
SIZING NOTES: I’m 5’5″ and I usually wear a small in tops and dresses, a 29 in jeans, and a size 8 shoe. Gifted items are indicated by c/o; everything else I purchased myself.
Late Winter Try-On Haul: Evereve & Nordstrom
These are a few new arrivals I’ve tried lately from Evereve and Nordstrom. First up, this stripe thermal henley by Sundry from Evereve.
Sundry Stripe Thermal Henley
Sundry is like French girl chic meets Southern California lifestyle; and they’re known for color, quality, and seriously soft fabrics.
This henley style top in the pink waffle knit with a striped placket pairs perfectly with blue, white, or black denim for so many casual outfit possibilities.
It’s 22 1/2″ long with a straight hemline and an easy fit, perfect for front-tucking into your favorite high-rise denim or leaving out for a more relaxed vibe.
I ordered the size 2, which equals a medium, but I think I could have probably gone with my usual size small (or the Sundry size 1.)
VERDICT: Deciding. I ordered the size 1 to compare, so I’ll keep you posted!
Ever Straight Cuffed
These jeans were love at first sight when I saw them on the Evereve website, and I was so sad to discover that they’re way too long for me. They should be more of a cropped fit, as shown on the model. Otherwise, they are super soft and comfortable, and they have a really nice wash.
I have to admit, I wasn’t very hopeful that the Evereve brand denim would measure up to my high standards, but I actually like them a lot. They have a nice fit and feel, and the straight leg silhouette with wide cuff is right on trend. Considering the reasonable price point, I would say they’re a very good value.
They definitely look better on me with clogs, as shown below, than they do with the sneakers, but that’s because I’m 5’5″. They will be perfect for the taller girls among us. The cuff is stitched, so you can’t really play around with it much, unless you want to cut them, which I’m not willing to do.
VERDICT:Since they’re very stretchy and I have a little bit of wiggle room in this size 29, so I ordered the 28 to compare. I doubt that will change the length enough to make them work for me, but it’s worth a try!
Treasure & Bond V-Neck Sweater
This is a lightweight sweater with a flattering v-neckline and elbow-length sleeves. It could be a nice work wear piece, but I also love how it pairs with denim for an easy weekend look.
I also tried it front-tucked, but I don’t think this does much for it. It’s 23 1/2″ long, so it works fine left out.
There isn’t anything super special about this top, but it’s a nice basic, and I feel like the fit is flattering and versatile for layering. It also comes in a dark grey charcoal heather.
VERDICT: Keeping for now. I’ll leave the tags on, since I can’t wear it for a while, but I think it will be a nice piece to have in my spring/summer wardrobe.
rag & bone Peyton High Waist Ankle Bootcut Jeans (Sienna)
As much as I love light wash denim, especially in spring and summer, these dark wash kick flares are a really nice alternative. They have a 26 1/2″ inseam; 16″ leg opening; 10 1/2″ front rise.
The fit is flattering, and they’re very comfortable. I just wish the rear pockets weren’t quite so large.
VERDICT: I’m thinking I’ll hold onto these for a while and try them with more outfits. The rear pockets may not need to be a deal breaker.
Michael Stars Maren Pullover
Now, this top, I love! It’s super soft inside and feels good against the skin, and that side stripe detail is subtle, but really fun.
I also love the 22″ length with the banded waistband and relaxed fit, and I especially appreciate the generous sleeve length and traditional shoulder seams.
It’s cute with the utility jeans, but I wanted to also try it with a wider leg, so I pulled out these old Citizens Isola kick flares. They have a 26.5″ inseam, 11.25″ rise, 16.5″ leg opening; and I’ve always liked the medium blue wash.
I don’t wear them a ton, but I keep them in my closet because every once in a while, they’re exactly what I need.
I also swapped the Sorel sneakers for my VEJA Esplar in Sable, because I like how the off-white suede logo relates to the top, and they also have a lower profile, which I prefer with the wider leg jeans.
I wasn’t sure I was totally feeling that look, though, so I decided to try the top with a full length flare.
These are the MOTHER Weekender, my favorites flares for casual looks, and they’re on sale! They have a 30 1/2″ inseam; 20″ leg opening; 9 1/2″ front rise. That’s according to the Nordstrom website, but I am sure the rise is higher than that.
Anyway! I like these jeans best with a higher profile sneaker to keep them off the floor and also to balance the width of the leg opening. I usually wear them with my P449 Johns, as seen here, or my LØCI logo sneakers.
VERDICT: Definitely keeping this top! I’ve already worn the outfit above.
Varley Horton Side Zip Midlayer
This top may not look like much, but it’s super soft and cozy, and I love the relaxed fit and the side zipper detail. I also really like the ecru color, for a change. It looks really good with the Sorel sneakers.
VERDICT: It’s pricey and rather plain, so I’m not sure yet if I’ll keep it or not. I like the Michael Stars pullover better, and I don’t really need both.
Reformation Stripe Recycled Cashmere Blend Sweater
Always a sucker for a stripe, I ordered this Reformation sweater, thinking it might be a nice way to transition to spring. It’s very lightweight, and it has more of a relaxed fit than I usually go for in a sweater, but I kind of like that about it.
(I’m wearing two different sneakers because I was trying to decide which pair I like better with the outfit.)
I feel like the volume in the sweater needs a front tuck, but I always feel like stripes look weird when a top is front tucked. Is it just me?
VERDICT: Deciding… it’s spendy, and I also have the next one to consider.
Rib Organic Cotton & Merino Wool Sweater (Ivory Black Stripe)
I think I prefer the more traditional fit of this sweater, plus the cotton/wool blend might take me further into spring than the cashmere.
Once again, the stripes do weird things when front tucked, but I don’t think this sweater needs a front tuck in the way the other one does.
VERDICT: Keeping this one, for sure!
Sanctuary Reissue Cargo Pant
I want to love these pants, but they’re a smidge too long. I could shorten them, I guess. I do like the slimmer wide leg fit, if that isn’t a total oxymoron.
Here’s how they look with the top front-tucked, so you can see the waistband. They have a comfortable 10 1/2″ front rise with a 32 1/2″ inseam and a 22″ leg opening.
I feel like they’re really flattering all the way around, and they’re comfortable too. I just need to decide if I should hem them for heels or flats. I mean, they almost don’t need to be shortened to wear with these clogs…
VERDICT: Deciding on these. I also have the KUT from the Kloth Meg Wide Leg in my room to try.
Good American Slit Front Denim Midi Skirt
I really like this denim skirt in theory. I feel like the long, slim silhouette is flattering and not as potentially frumpy as the A-line silhouettes, and the front slit is a nice idea to keep it a little bit sexy, but it’s just a little too high for my comfort level. Especially when sitting down… yeah. Not happening.
It’s too bad because otherwise, it has a really nice fit, and it’s comfortable too.
VERDICT: Sadly, this must go back.
And that’s a wrap for this week! I do have more things to try on, and more is coming in, so I’ll try to get another Try-On Haul up soon!
