Size 6 - I would've been really surprised to see the color & tone of these in-person if I'd seen them on the website first. There's a glow to them on the website that doesn't exist in-person. These are similar to the ones offered over the recent years. A regular tartan, for the most part. I really don't recall anything electric about the colors. Please chime in if you have them, or have tried them and disagree. Check them out on Feeling J Crewzy, on Notes From the Dressing Room and on The Handbag Aficionado.
See, pretty standard as far as colors.
They seem ever so slightly longer than the usual capri. I'm talking 1/4" - 1/2" maybe...?
In this pic I'm grabbing the back of the thigh to pull it tighter. I always need at least a 6 to fit my rear and then the thigh is just a little too big. I just go with it. The 6, that is.
Lol looks the same as above, but trust me that my butt is not quite that low. 100% wool. I believe these are unlined. Interestingly, the have textural issues, but the lack of lining doesn't always bother me.
If I didn't own the Factory wool skimmers from last year or the red plaid that is mostly white based, I would be all over these. I like the colors.
Keeper chambray shirt ($78) comes in regular 00-16 (44875) & petite 00-14 (74120). The color is called afternoon sky (ASK). How Anthro of them.
Size 6 - I used to vacillate between 4 & 6 and sometimes still do. I'm finding that 6 is easily the best size in button downs like these, sometimes an 8. The 6 worked ok, but would probably take an 8. I don't even know if I can claim post-partum after 14.5 months, but I am. lol Check it out on Cupcakes and Cashmere, on Debye, on Jacey Lenae, on One Too Many Closets and on Sequins & Stilletos. I agree w/Ema that button downs should be buttoned from the 3rd or 4th button on down. Unless you're doing the necklace-over look at the neck.
Pocket detail. A lil' different.
I like the lighter shade and I like the pocket detail. I think you just have to keep trying chambrays until you find the perfect one for you. I thought this was standard fare so thumbs up, but I wasn't jumping up & down. It's a fine line between looking chic and looking like you're off to do some plumbing.
