Elusive

Spring has been pretty slow to come around this year so I’m still layering up pretty heavily, particularly in the evenings. The elusive spring has been frustrating but at the same time, a part of me is pretty happy  that I still have time to experiment with cool weather pieces.

This leather-sleeve trench coat is the thickest trench that I own (so much lining!) and also my most loved. I bought my regular XS, but it generally does not allow for heavy layering underneath like I did here. I finally made it work with a bit (or a lot) of gentle tugging and twisting.

This extra long J.Crew Endless Shirt is an instant favorite in my closet right now. The cuff is extra long which I thought was too unusual for me to keep as I wanted something as classic as possible, but it has definitely grown on me since it allows for a different look when folded over.

I debated long and hard about whether to go with 0P or 2P with the Endless Shirt. It seemed to me that I was getting a lot more lenth in the sleeves on the 2P, but overall the  0P fit much better everywhere else and I got maybe 3mm of extra width in the shoulder which is not enough to make a difference in how high I could lift my arms. I also ordered the LOFT Tunic Softened Shirt for comparison but I am a bit worried about the wrinkle factor as well as the sheerness of the fabric since it is 100% cotton, . We’ll see what happens!
