Sound the alarm, I’m wearing color! As you guys know I tend to sway towards gray/black/ivory when it comes to my sweater collection but when eyeing this sweater, I just loved the sweet and soft pink shade.
Everlane Alpaca Sweater Review
I shop at Everlane throughout the year – it is truly one of my favorite brands – but my favorite time to shop there is definitely during sweater season. I absolutely love their classic yet stylish sweater offerings. This Alpaca Crew was such a good launch from them this winter and I love that this sweater is under $100 and available in several colors. I’m wearing it in my usual Medium and I love that it has a slightly oversize fit making it cozy and comfortable. I also really like the thicker crew neck detail. This sweater – like most alpaca – does shed some so you’ll need to have a lint roller handy if you plan to layer it but it’s nothing that’s overly bothersome.
Other Everlane sweater favorites of mine are this cashmere crew – so cozy and I’ve been opting to wear it on many of my recent flights (I pair it with these leggings and a striped tee), this more fitted cashmere sweatshirt that looks so good tucked into jeans (I sized up to a Large in this style), this $100 plain cashmere crew that’s a great closet staple (the frost donegal color is my favorite and I love layering it under my leather jacket) and this cotton crew sweater I have in navy.
Also you guys, I have to share a practice I’ve adopted recently that has totally changed my life!
Living in a studio apartment I have to be fairly tidy at all times but due to a lack of space, things get messy QUICKLY. Particularly after blog shoots when I have pieces of ensembles everywhere or after I’ve opened a lot of packages or unpacked…you get the picture. Anyhow, recently when I’ve been returning home and feeling a bit overwhelmed at the status of things, I have been setting the timer for ten minutes and I spend those next ten minutes doing nothing but tidying. No getting distracted by other things if it doesn’t relate to tidying.
I spend those ten minutes hanging up clothes, emptying the dishwasher, putting things away – you name it. And it has been amazing how much I can accomplish in those 10 minutes! Truly game-changing. One the ten minutes are up, then I can actually relax when I go to sit down and read or watch TV or tackle my inbox. Highly recommend it if you’re trying to live a more tidy lifestyle!
