I wrote about the work uniform a little while ago, and was inspired to start dressing nicer. Here's my first attempt at dressing a little bit nicer, but not too nice. Relaxed, but still put together. I've been very fond of dress pants the past week, mainly because they're super stretchy and they feel like leggings.
Now for my updated thoughts on the Everlane Silk Sleeveless.
I've been wearing my Everlane Silk Sleeveless a lot more lately now that I've found out that machine washing it and then air drying it on a hanger won't wreck it. It's held up quite well, although it needs a steam after it's been dried to get the wrinkles out. Also, I bought an XS in this blouse. I'm realizing that I should have bought a S instead, so it would fit better around the armholes. As it stands, they're a little tight. So far so good, though I've worn it probably about 10x, and have washed around 6x. The silk remains nice and soft, and the same lotion-y texture that it was when I first bought it.
I had a tiny twinge of purchase regret, but none anymore now that I know it holds up. I think next summer, I'll add a light grey or grey one to my closet. They really are great value for what they are - $65 from Everlane, whereas I bet one from Equipment would cost around twice that.
