Knick, knack, Anorak

Seasons + Salt, Everlane Anorak-4Seasons + Salt, Everlane Anorak-8Seasons + Salt, Everlane Anorak-5

I wore this over the weekend and I loved it so much and wanted to make sure the look made it on the blog.  Honestly, I really wish I was wearing and sharing skirt-and-sandal outfits with you guys, but truth be told, it is still rainy and chilly in the lovely PNW right now.

I told you guys how much I reach for this sweater (oatmeal is nice too), literally, every third day. I am not even joking, I wore it on Saturday, Sunday and again yesterday. It keeps me cozy without feeling encumbered on these cool spring days. It’s like the warmth of wool without the weight. I ordered this Anorak with some Everlane credits a few weeks ago, and sat on the fence for about a week deciding whether I liked it or not. I really like their tenches but unfortunately coats without hoods are just impractical in Oregon. I could have both hooded and non-hooded spring coats in my closet, but I am keeping toward my lean closet principles, and I really only need one coat.

Anyway, part of the reason I was on the fence about this coat is that the fabric is very thin and I didn’t think it would be warm enough. But when a jacket hangs to your knees, it turns out it’s warm no matter what the fabric is! Lightweight fabric also means the coat is super packable (like in my tote). The generous cut looks pretty unique and chic, and it’s a nice change-up from wearing my olive green jacket all the time. My booties are by Frye (another item I wear near-daily) and my beautiful necklace is by my friend Lauren of Loop Jewelry.

    LOVE the anorak! I’ve been looking for the perfect second spring jacket to give my other one a break (also olive green!). May I ask what size you ordered? I recently ordered some t-shirts and got larges because I prefer an oversize fit, but Everlane’s size chart puts me at a medium.

      Thank you! I am surprised at how much I like it too! As for sizing, I ordered a Small, even though I typically wear a Medium in other Everlane items (like my t-shirts at the cashmere crop sweater). I got a small because the coat is already pretty oversized and I didn’t want it to be gigantic.

        Fantastic! Thank you!

    Love this! I’ve been dreaming of a longer length jacket but didn’t want bulk since I layer a lot anyway. This is super cute, unique and feminine! Looks great on you! Is it the midnight color?

    • Andrea March 23, 2016 at 12:07 pm

      Hi Sarah! Yes, it is the midnight color, though I really liked the bright navy! (They were out of my size though.) This ‘color’ comes across as a muted black, almost charcoal, and I quite like it.

    what a fabulous jacket! I love everlane, but had no idea that they made this coat – it would be perfect for rainy days and windy weather. Cozy-looking sweater too. It looks amazing on you.

    • Andrea March 23, 2016 at 12:08 pm

      Thanks Cassandra! I know, there coats are far less touted than their other items, but definitely worth the look. Thanks for the sweater compliment. ;) It’s ridiculously soft!

    I love my Everlane anorak! It doesn’t rain very often here in Los Angeles, and when it does it’s typically not very cold. It’s so nice having something lightweight and packable for when the weather passes. And those Frye booties are so fabulous!

    • Andrea March 23, 2016 at 12:10 pm

      Thanks Jessie! I had wanted the Everlane loafers but they just didn’t fit me, so I ended up with these Frye booties (that I can walk miles in!). Frye never lets me down. It makes sense that this Anorak would be good for LA weather! Which color do you have?

  • Kisha March 23, 2016 at 8:53 pm

    LOVE this! I’m posting my spring wardrobe shopping list tomorrow and on it is an oversized spring coat – this might be perfect! (and the fact that it’s long too! perfect!)

  • Lauren March 23, 2016 at 10:56 pm

    Soooo…I don’t *think* I had ever heard of Everlane until I started following you on IG and checked out your blog. WOW! I am impressed – everything is so perfectly modern and priced right. And I love that their garments are made in the USA (or so it seems from the few items I looked at). Oh, this anorak is awesome, too. :)

    • Andrea March 25, 2016 at 5:16 pm

      Thanks girl! Yes, Everlane is pretty great about being transparent when it comes to their manufacturing process. They do use some factories in China, but they are actually decent places to work (they document a lot about in in their site). Glad to have you!

    Love this look! I have the Everlane anorak in navy and have gotten a lot of use out of it throughout the drastically different seasons in Upstate NY. The lightweight fabric will come in handy for you when the temps warm up and it works well with a dress and even shorts :)

    • Andrea March 26, 2016 at 11:01 pm

      Thank you Ashley! This makes me excited to try out the jacket with a dress or shorts – I can totally picture it. Glad to hear it works somewhere as cold as NY! Have a great holiday weekend!

    I have been torn between the navy and muted black for months!! How did you choose? I wear a ton of black but the new navy is so dark I think it can totally pass as a neutral…

    • Andrea April 29, 2017 at 10:42 pm

      Hi Jessica! This navy version is from last season, but I love it! I also have this season’s one in black. You can’t go wrong with either option!
