Ethical Details: Top - Everlane; Jacket - secondhand via Thredup; Loafers - vintage

I actually bought a few Everlane items several months ago, but due to their very particular fit preferences, which tend to be somewhat slouchy and over-sized, I had trouble determining my size and ended up returning my order. But I never stopped loving the company. They pursue radical transparency, which means that they provide detailed information about their design, production, and pricing processes. Plus, their online only model means that they can price higher quality merchandise at more affordable prices. This time around I ran into a few fit and quality control issues, but they resolved it immediately and had two representatives follow up with me as soon as I submitted my return request. 

I wore this outfit to take a walk around the neighborhood. I let the beautiful trees outfitted in fall colors persuade me to take untrod paths and stumbled upon an old church only a couple blocks from my house! It's been remarkably warm and sunlit around here; I'm thankful for the chance to go without several layers for a few more days.

  1. These pictures are gorgeous and it looks beautiful there right now. We are having a freeze tonight and it's so chilly here. I bought the chunky wool cardigan in large recently, and it was too big. I decided to wash and dry it, and now it's much easier to wear. It did pill, but I brushed it and it looks new again. I love the fall colors in your outfit.

    1. Today was gray and a high of 46, so I'm right there with you now. At least it's not snowing yet. Everlane is just weird fit-wise; I wish they'd let the buyer decide what type of fit they want instead of cutting the arm holes smaller and forcing you into their silhouette. It's a tightly controlled aesthetic, but I guess that's also what makes them desirable.
