LOFT

Labels to Love: Everlane

This San Francisco based company is a minimalist’s dream!  Founded in 2010, Natty Gal got turned on to them about two years ago.  Using a business model of “radical transparency”, Everlane sources the best factories across the world – often the same ones producing designer labels.  They show their customers true, detailed costs for each item including the Everlane and traditional retail markups. Products are of a consistent, high-end quality at a great price.  
The Silk Round Collar  - EverlaneThe Silk Sleeveless - Everlane
 
My first personal purchase was a long-sleeve silk blouse ($78) – that I wear for both work and on the weekends.  For summer I’ll be stocking up on the sleeveless option ($65).
 
The Modern Ankle Boot - Everlane The Modern Loafer - Everlane The Knot Sandal - Everlane
 
Favorite boots and shoes (all crafted in Italy) include the versatile ankle boot, the modern loafer and the knot sandal.  Prices range from $120-$195.

Last but not least, The Petra Market Tote ($365)- is a favorite of fashion bloggers. Available in 8 colors – it’s roomy, soft and ages well.

Transitional Twill Topper

 The Cotton U-neck - Everlane

It can stay chilly in the Midwest until well into May but many of us are already thinking about spring and some transitional outfits.  The clean lines and beautiful drape of this cafe au lait twill coat lend it to both office and casual wear.  Styled here as a weekend outfit, I paired the coat with my new favorite jeans and a black tee.  The olive bootie-styled sandals look great with the blacks and denim but will be useful come summer paired with navy, tan or cream. The fun fringe bucket bag finishes the look!
