Here are the Everlane pieces I ordered recently. I also added a couple of basics (sports bra and hoodie) that are definite keepers. These three I’m on the fence about but leaning towards returning so I took some quick try-on pics. Thoughts? Thanks!

1-2 — Shirt dress. Super breezy and lightweight, but feels like it’ll demand ironing, which I know I won’t do. Collar and sleeves both feel a bit overwhelming on me. Also, as much I love vertical stripes in theory, in practice they make me feel like I’m wearing a circus tent. I seem to need to go through this every few summers to remind myself.

3 — Eyelet dress. Very weighty material!! Too hot for summer, but I’m not sure it’ll look as good with tights… Fabric is a bit itchy too. It fits, but I feel it lacks spark. In terms of occasion wear, I feel like I have other options I’d reach for over this…

4 — Breton top. A little bored by this one? The brown is not as reddish IRL as in the stock photos . Would prefer it a bit boxier/more oversized — could maybe try a size up but not sure I’m excited enough to bother.

Apologies for messy post-swim high-humidity hair!
