Wool in STRIPES! Review of Simply Merino & COUPON CODE!

SUPER excited to share this quick mini-review of Simply Merino, as they have just released a new line of striped fabric for women and kiddos! This is my first time trying Simply Merino, and it will not be my last. I’m quite impressed with their business model and the quality also seems fantastic.

Thank you Simply Merino for gifting these items for my review. It’s especially rewarding to work with small businesses as a small creator! Simply Merino does not have an affiliate program, but I will be sharing affiliate links to the other items shown in my outfits. Keep reading for a coupon code towards the end of the post!

Simply Merino is a small business and their designs are created and manufactured in Canada. Shipping was quite fast! Their commitment to ethical manufacturing is very impressive and in fact they devote an entire tab of their website to Transparency, which I love. It includes info on sustainability, supply chain, and more!

In fact, Simply Merino really takes this a step further by offering scraps for crafters, and a few other designs that help them use up all the leftover pieces of merino, which I think is absolutely amazing! That includes their Zero-Waste Craft Quilt Box, Scrunchies, and Nursing Pads. What a fantastic way to stay sustainable! Bravo, Simply Merino for keeping true to your values in such a practical way.

Now on to the topic of today: STRIPES! I have been looking for some nice classic striped merino pieces for awhile. A striped tshirt always seems to be a great capsule wardrobe essential and I have really missed that with my wool recently. When I saw that Simply Merino was offering stripes in their line, I contacted them to ask about sharing a review. Now that I have tried them, I think these pieces are absolutely fantastic and they definitely exceeded my expectations.

As a newbie to the brand, their fabric feels really great! Although the cut is definitely long and slim on both of these tops, I felt like the stretch allowed for comfort and a flattering fit. I definitely needed a large so I would say if you are on the fence about your size, sizing up would be my recommendation. I’m 5’6″ and about 175 pounds and typically a size 10 in pants, with a pear shape! 

Women’s Fitted Tshirt in Indigo/White Stripes
Like I said, I chose size Large and I feel these pieces run on the slim and long side. However, the material offers some nice stretch and the fabric is substantial. I purposely tried these shirts with a black bra on underneath to see how the coverage was and I’m happy to report they are thick and the coverage/opacity is excellent, so no issue there!
When I first saw this shirt, I thought it might be black and white, which is what I was really hoping. Although it’s actually navy, I think it really does pass for black and white, and I will probably treat it as such and pair with black pants whenever I feel so inclined.

I am not usually a fan of high crew necks, but I think this cut is quite flattering. I LOVE the elbow lengths sleeves! I will probably usually wear this shirt tucked in, because it’s quite long otherwise.
As soon as I saw this shirt, I wanted to pair it with my wool& Greta skirt, and I really love this combo. Looking back at the photos, I think what I need is a scarf or necklace to balance out the outfit, so next time I will add one on!
I wanted to share this photo for your reference. Although this isn’t the way I would style these pieces, I thought it would help to show the generous length of this top! This shirt is a great option for my tall-torso friends because it runs nice and long in my opinion.
Next, I had to try this top with my beloved Woolx Sawyer Shacket. I loved this combo and will definitely be wearing this to fall events in the next couple months! I think the colors look great together and the stripes really pop.

Women’s Scoop Neck Top in Forest/Cream
I love the scoop neck cut of this top. It’s super flattering and has the perfect amount of stretch. I am a total sucker for olive greens of all kinds and this Forest/Cream stripe is perfect. If you haven’t figured it out, olive green is a neutral and can be paired with almost anything.
I decided to try this shirt with the Woolx Ellie Pants (which by the way, I’m obsessed with). Wearing the pants in a size medium and I love this outfit. The shirt tucks in great and I feel like adding the longer necklace gives this outfit an upgraded look. I would also love to try this with a scarf.
I also wanted to try this outfit with my wool& Cypress cardigan, another piece I wear a LOT. (Please ignore the wrinkles, this was packed quite tightly in a box over the summer).
So all in all, I am wearing black, grey, brown, and olive in this outfit, and you know what, I think it really works! I used to really stick with black on black or brown with brown but the more I style different pieces the more I branch out beyond the traditional neutral “rules”.
Again, just sharing a pic untucked for you guys to see the generous length of this style! It’s a little too snug on my tummy for me to enjoy this look, but if I sized up it might work well with leggings. Next up, I thought this might be a fun piece to layer with my Woolx Cassie dress. This is a total workhorse of a dress that can be worn for all seasons. I love it over the stripes!
I am really impressed with these striped shirts from Simply Merino.  The line of colors is so pretty and the fit and feel of these pieces is super nice. I do feel they run slim and tall so keep that in mind. I’m also very happy to offer a coupon code for my followers. You may use code: obsessed10 for 10% off your purchase. I hope you enjoy shopping at Simply Merino and please let me know if you decide to try these lovely stripes!
