It’s been so mild till now that I’ve been a little frustrated that I haven’t been able to get well and truly wrapped up. Well all that has changed today as it won’t get above freezing till Friday – brrrr! Is it wrong to be already wishing for Spring Break?
My outfits for the past 3 days have really been all about comfort what with sitting in a cinema then heading back to work. Nothing too challenging this week, at least till I adapt to that 6 o’clock alarm again.
I have to say I am fairly new to Uniqlo – mainly as they haven’t been selling online long in the US and we don’t have a store here in Atlanta. When I am in NYC I always pop in to the SoHo store and I adore the simple, unbranded, classics that they sell. Many of my blogging friends love their silk shirts, merino sweaters and cashmere and last year I bought 3 of their men’s cashmere crewnecks. The quality and price point of Uniqlo is fabulous – I just wish we did have a store here as their sizing can be hit or miss making online shopping a bit of a gamble.
Recently I was online looking for cashmere and stumbled across the Urban sweats collection. Unfortunately it is pretty much sold out in the UK but there is still plenty of stock left of most items in the US.
The sweatpants are great with a cross over crotch and the sweat fabric is thick and soft.
I love the cut of the sweatshirt too – cropped yet with a little something extra – I love to wear mine with a tank underneath with jeans. I actually had to replace mine as I was wearing it for the first time when I smashed our neighbors’ glass door!
Today I am wearing the dress/tunic from the collection. It is a medium and fits beautifully. I really do love the thickness of the sweat – it is warm for a chilly Fall morning. I’ve tried to show you the cut at the back – it’s lower than the front.
