Hey pals! Coming atcha with a little Everlane try-on today, and I’m proud to report that trying on real clothes that aren’t just pajamas in disguise was a delightfully refreshing way to spend a Saturday. Even better, both of the outfits here are 100% comfortable enough to wear both at home and out, including the rigid ’90s fit jeans — but we’ll get to those in a second.

Jump Into This Jumpsuit (sorry…)
In a Surprisingly Seasonless Hue
First up, this jumpsuit! I went outside my color comfort zone on this Linen Jumpsuit, and I am so pleasantly surprised by how versatile and flattering the warm, rich brown can be. (Julieta would be proud!) Not sure if you can tell in the photos, but it’s actually got a wee bit of a reddish, clay undertone that feels truly seasonless and would be so easy to dress up (think statement jewelry and a pair of cognac heels or booties) or down. To make it feel even more playful, I layered a muscle tank underneath, too. (This tank is lovely on its own, by the way. It’s the perfect length — short but not truly cropped — and has a cool “I cut the sleeves off a shrunken boys’ tee” vibe, but, in true Everlane fashion, somehow manages to look more sophisticated than the sum of its parts.)
Re: the sizing on the jumpsuit — I tried on both the 0 and the 2 and ended up going with the 2. Both fit, but the 0 was just ever so slightly snug in the bust, which caused the buttons to gap slightly — big pet peeve of mine. The 2 is a bit longer in the torso, too, so just in case the linen shrinks at all, I won’t have to worry about it riding up. I also love that, since the straps are adjustable you can customize the fit even more. And just like the linen top that Laura reviewed recently, the straps on this are wide enough that you can get away with a wearing a normal bra.
And take a peek at this little lunchbox bag, friends. I’ve slowly started gravitating back to smaller bags these days (one of the few plusses of not planning long days away from home) and this is the perfect size for toting all my basic essentials in a sweet shape that feels especially timeless. I love the cool, concrete color of the taupe, but I’m also unexpectedly drawn to this lilac.

OK. Now let’s talk about these jeans.
Ummm…These Rigid Denim Jeans Are Comfy with
No Break-In Period. What??
’90s Cheeky Straight Jeans — Perfect Outta The Box
I LOVE rigid denim, so I was so excited to learn about these ’90s Cheeky Straight Jeans, which are 100% cotton but somehow fit TTS without a tricky break-in period. Let’s say that again: perfect fit, straight outta the box. I suppose you could size down if you want that painted-on jeans fit, but in my true size, these manage to be both satisfactorily snug AND comfortable. I didn’t have to wrestle them on, and yet they still hugged in the right places and didn’t sag or stretch out by the end of the day. (Sizing note: I’m wearing my usual size, 25, in the Ankle length.) Can’t remember the last time a pair of denim felt this effortless, friends. And the new Washed Black is an instant classic and makes the simple ReCotton Racerback Tank feel fresh and polished, especially in the Off-White. (Lana and I went a little mad with a DIY tie-die kit earlier this week, so these two new tanks are now the only unadulterated white garments I own.) The whole ReCotton line is super soft and made of 60% recycled cotton, which is pretty cool, too. And the scoop on the neck of this tank is pretty and summery, showing just enough skin. I could see stocking up on a few colors. So good.
As for the Micro Form Bag I’m wearing, well, I’m having a hard time finding a word more suitable than adorable…but if it looks like a duck and quacks like a duck, right? In the same vein of bringing only the essentials when I go out and about, this little bag nails it: phone, credit card case, lip gloss, hand sanitizer. When normalcy resumes, this would be the ideal little date night bag, too. It’s as small and chic as a clutch but easier to keep close thanks to the strap. And THE COLOR. Downright irresistible. I’m already imagining how it will jazz up my graphic tees, too. (Now to pry it away from Lana, who has determined that its size automatically makes it hers and hers alone…)

Sustainable Shoe Review:
Everlane Day Glove in ReKnit
This is my first time trying the Day Glove line, and — just being totally transparent — I expected them to feel a little conservative for me. Like the kind of thing I would have gravitated toward for biz casual needs, you know? But then I slipped them on and — holy heck, these things are cute! I mean, other team members have raved about them already, so I should have known, but they immediately felt more modern and edgy than I expected, and in the bright Bone, they’re eye catching and just…slick. Definitely a summer staple, and shockingly flattering with an ankle length pant, too. Plus — ReKnit! So they’re made from recycled plastic bottles, which my tree-hugging, native Californian-self is real into. Comfy straight out of the box, too. And predictably TTS.
Sustainable Shoe Review:
Everlane The Court Sneaker
You guys know that I have a soft spot for street sneakers, so it’s no surprise that I was super-excited for these Court Sneakers. The gum sole feels retro and keeps the orthopedic vibes at bay (though the all-white still manage to keep that in check, too) — and while I didn’t take a picture, they’re flattering with skirts and shorts, too, which is a big bonus when it comes to tennies. Coolest of all, these are the lowest-impact product of their kind, featuring a full-grain leather upper from a Gold-Certified Tannery (there’s a decent amount to unpack within that claim, but it’s a certification assigned by the Leather Working Group); a natural and recycled rubber sole; and a 100% recycled polyester lining. As for fit, probably becoming a bit of a broken record here, but these guys were comfy straight away (even sans socks, no rubbing on the heel) and TTS.
