Review: Grana Pima V-Neck Tee

The post really should be titled “The Search is Over. I Found the Perfect Tee.” I don’t really like to call anything perfect because I am so picky, but the Grana pima cotton tees are damn near if not totally perfect. Full disclosure… Grana sent me this tee in addition to the lovely cashmere sweaters and silk shirt to review.

The instant I put it on I could feel the difference in the fabric. Holy crap is this pima cotton soft! The fabric is nice and thick, so you don’t have to worry about bra show through. I’m talking a regular nude bra. Not hot pink or black. I love that their tees are a bit longer than some others, so you don’t have to worry about your lily white fish belly showing if you raise your arms. At $15.00 a pop, these are a great deal. Way, way, waaaaaaaaaaaaaay better than the Everlane tees. WAY. And I like those tees, but these are a zillion times better.

I think the proof is in the purchase. I bought four more. I bought two more of the v-neck and two of the crew neck. Pro tip: Size up. I typically take a medium in tees and tops, but I am wearing a large here.

Black and White to Fight the Winter Doldrums

Hi friends! Sorry for the radio silence over the past few weeks. January and the first part of February is my crazy busy time at work. I’ve been working like an insane woman. Plus, family-wise we have had a lot going on too. I feel like all I ever do anymore is drive kids around. Mom Uber. Oh, and the weather has sucked on the weekends too. Bad weather = no pictures. Not that I had any free time to actually take pictures…

This is the time of year that I don’t love. I could pretty much do without January, February and March. While it may be turning to spring in other parts of the country, Michigan is still completely engaged in and committed to winter. Spring clothing is coming into stores and there is no way that I will be able to wear any of it for a few months.

I struggle with trying to stay warm, while looking somewhat sping-ish. Come March, I refuse to wear tall boots. I’m obstinate that way. So, I opt for a neutral color scheme that doesn’t say “I’m typically worn in fall or spring”. That’s why I love black, white and red together. It’s season neutral.

Review: Grana Cashmere Crew Neck Sweater

I have one final Grana cashmere sweater to show you and I’m pretty sure it’s my favorite. As I shared last week, the folks at Grana sent me some of their product to review. They had no requirement for number of posts. They had no requirement for positive reviews. They had no requirement for anything. I’m sharing this look because I really like the sweater. I’m wearing the Grana Cashmere Crew Neck Sweater in burgundy. I love the color, and I love the simple classic shape. I wore this sweater three times over the past week. Shhhhhh… Don’t tell any work peeps or any of my friends. I don’t want them thinking I’m gross.

This crew is simply great. I love that basic crews are like a blank slate. You can dress them up or down. Granted, this is a really basic look that I wore to work. (Look at me wearing real pants! I still hate pants.) However, I am looking forward to wearing this with an obnoxiously sparkly necklace soon. It also looks great with a pair of jeans and booties or retro sneakers for a casual look. I want it in black or navy and plan to buy it after I make it out of January. I’m trying to succeed at “no spend” January.
