Everlane air ruched blouse and cheeky jean Review

Hi lovelies.  Today I will review the Air Ruched Blouse by Everlane and also their High Rise Cheeky Denim.  I gotta say I love them both.  As in my last post, the Air Ruched Blouse is made of light as air cotton.  I ordered mine in black and sized down from a 4 to a 2.  I knew from the reviews that it is roomy and I didn't want a lot of extra fabric in the hot summer.  Glad I did.  I roll up the sleeves for an even breezier look/feel.  I've already worn it so much and I've only owned it for about 10 days.  That's always the best sign of a good solid purchase for me.  

The Cheeky Jean is similar in that I've worn them non-stop since purchasing them last fall.  I ordered the cropped pair and they look good with my Everlane Day Boots, mules and sandals.  99% of my denim is vintage and can look a little ragged (like me!) but these are my "nice" pair.  I always feel put together in them.  They are comfy as there is a little stretch to them and the denim itself is so nice.  Read the reviews first to get your size just right before ordering!

I hope you are enjoying these posts.  I appreciate you listening to me.  It's been good for me to get out of my head (sometimes it's not the best place to be) and thinking about things that really are just fun.  Fashion has always been something I love and I know Larry wanted me to continue being happy.  So I'll do my best.  I have lots of ideas for sharing this summer.  I've been working on the house and garden and want to share with you in case you need a little inspiration.  Take care my loves.  x


easy chino & air relaxed shirt by everlane

Hello ladies and gents.  Recently Everlane asked if I would review a few of their new summer pieces...yes please. I've been shopping at Everlane since their very beginning and love everything they do.  I love basics and no one does them better then Everlane.  It wasn't easy to pick just a few but in today's post I will review my 2 top picks.

I chose the Air Relaxed Shirt and Easy Chino.  They are both so good and such classics.  I gasped when I opened the box because they were better than I thought they'd be.  Let's start with the amazing pants (which I will be ordering in another color asap.)

These are the 100% cotton Easy Chino, where have you been all my life? The elastic band waist is so comfortable and yet somehow manages to be chic at the same time.  I adore everything about them.  The soft fabric, the cut and the deep pockets.  They go with everything in my closet.  They are very roomy across the tummy so I sized down.  I normally wear a 4 so the 2 fit perfecto.  Another great thing about Everlane is that there are tons of honest reviews for each product and people list their height, weight and normal size so it makes ordering much easier.  I highly advise reading them, don't just take my word for it.

Forgive the washed out photos, I'm so out of practice.  This Air Relaxed Shirt in Ivory is as light as air.  I ordered a size 4 which is again my normal size and it fits great.  Not too tight or too big.

It's really hot here in Redlands during the summer but everywhere you go is ice cold air conditioned and freezing.  I need sleeves to roll up or down accordingly.  The fabric is so soft, like a well worn favorite. I've tucked it in jeans and love tying it at the waist.  I realize I am showing a bit of my tummy but frankly it's the only part of my body that is not wrinkled 😸.  I can tie it with super high waist jeans or with a maxi skirt and then I'm all proper again.

They even look good from the back.  I will review the other items I was given and also a few I purchased earlier in the year.

And also coming up even though it is summer, I have an exhaustive post on Everlane cashmere and how they revolutionized my winter dressing.  I want to do it now because they have a lot of sweaters on sale at their Choose What You Pay section on their website.

See you soon honey. x


summery things

I'd love to live in this dress all summer...

When I'm stuck, can't think and need to go somewhere I find almost instant inspiration here at le fashion.

I can't stop watching the video of this fabulous home. esp. the kitchen.

Do you ever wonder if you have enough to retire on?  I did.  This calculator helped me figure it out.

Stay cool honey.  x


hey there

I'm going to give this a shot.  You have to start somewhere right?  I have tried countless times to write, write something Janet, but always stop because I don't know where to start.  My thoughts are still quite jumbled. 

So I thought I'd just start by filling you in on what a little bit of what life is like now.  Larry was such a larger-than-life personality and without him, the house is v quiet, at times unnervingly so 💔.  I've been in the garden as much as possible but always with the  allergies.  I've started with small tasks inside too, cleaning, organizing and painting. They've been good for me because I feel a rhythm returning.

Thank you all for the emails, cards, flowers, plants and gifts.  I'll treasure all the cards and photos of the flowers forever.  Thank you for taking time out of your busy days to continually drop by and check on me.  I'm humbled by it all and it really did help when I most needed it.

So what to do next?  I want to try and continue to blog.  I do not want to use this space to grieve though.  I hope you understand what I mean by that.  I want this to be a place of normalcy for me.  I want to talk gardens, decorating, food and fashion.  I'm gonna give it a shot...💗
