    Reporting back on my recent Everlane order which shipped the day after I placed it.

    Day gloves in bright red and rose (reordered when this color went on sale). Love. I should get rid of all my other casual flats.

    ReNew Sweatshirt. At 50 percent off its a fair price for a staple. I like the fit. The waist is fitted which works better for me than a boxy cut.

    Tread trainer in black with the off white sole. These are sturdier than my usual sneaker but for walking and light hiking they will work. They’re flattering on the foot. A bit hard to get on but they will break in. I stayed true to size and the fit is perfect. Got a matching pair for my husband and he loves them too.

    Easy straight leg chino. Looking at the size chart I went up one from my usual. I just saw another person say they went from a 00 to a 4. The waist is elastic which is why the size chart seems much smaller. If I went up much more they’d look sloppy, plus this material does give a little. They're not super fashionable, basically like scrubs with a wide elastic waist, but they’re MORE flattering than a typical jogger or lounge pant and I like the lightweight chino fabric more than a knit. At $58 they’re not cheap, but if I look at athleta or lululemon they’re a fair price and I’ll have ONE pair.

    What I didn’t like: lightweight straight leg crop. They do nothing for me, the wide leg is better for my shape.
