wool& Livia Tank
First up, we have the beautiful 100% wool Livia Tank. I chose this tank top in Vintage Blue, which is one of my favorite Wool& colors. It’s a sophisticated slate blue, almost a grey and I think it’s another one of those colors like Marine Blue that almost looks good on everyone. This tank top fits pretty much true to size. I’m 175 pounds and size 10 typically in pants (pear shape). My stomach is my trouble spot. I got a size Medium and although it’s a little snug in my stomach, I think it’s the best fit for me.

The material feels very soft. Although many of the wool& pieces are blends, this tank is 100% wool. It is NOT itchy and feels great right out of the package. It’s not see through but it is pretty lightweight. I feel it is generous in length although not as long as the Stella Tee. This tank top is perfect for layering and has a flattering neckline.
I wanted to try something a little different with the Livia, so I decided to pair it with the Amalya worn long as a duster.  After wearing skinny jeans for a decade or so, I am glad to see wide leg pants coming back in style. I found these bootcut black jeans at the thrift store and have enjoyed wearing them this week. And yep, I’m barefoot because I wanted to get a little grounding in!

If you haven’t experienced wool&’s denim, it’s truly lovely. It’s sturdy but soft and not stiff or rough. It’s got structure, but it’s also got a little drape. This wrap skirt is a gorgeous piece. The fit is perfect and I love the structure of it. Like I said before, I’m about 5’6″ and usually a medium in bottoms (like Summit leggings). I am a pear shape and have some extra weight around the middle, so I often size up to Large.  I went with a Large in Greta and that’s a great fit for me. There are two adjustments to the skirt depending on the button you choose. I am on the larger size and it’s a good fit. I wouldn’t want it any tighter.

I really like the length. It feels feminine without being frumpy and it still gives plenty of coverage. When I sit down it doesn’t gap open, which I very much appreciate.
The pockets are perfectly placed and DO NOT poke out. In fact, I didn’t realize it had pockets until I happily discovered them.
Here it is with my  Woolx Arie bodysuit It gives a nice smooth line and looks very sleek.
I also LOVE it with this Woolx Ava Tank Top in Terracotta. I love the color of this tank top and the fit of it. The ribbing gives it a nice textural contrast with the skirt.
Greta is a very grown-up, sophisticated silhouette. I feel like it’s very much a step up for me. I think it would work in any context that you would normally wear a dress but it does have a dressier look. I am totally going to wear this to church and to the office. We have a very casual vibe but I think this would work for many business casual environments. It’s comfortable enough to wear for shopping, dinner, movies, etc. I will definitely be sharing more Greta outfits in the future. I absolutely love Greta!!!

wool& Milena
I have a double c-section belly and also carried twins. (Ya’ll some things ya just can’t hide). So I admit I was nervous about the straight cut of the Milena and I was also nervous NOT to get black. (I have so many dresses in black but I wanted a change and I am so glad I went with grey!) I am also a bit of a size chameleon since I can size way down for the swing styles. But I’m generally a Medium-ish pushing towards a large. I went with a large Milena and I really love this dress. My favorite part is that it is wider across the straps so it really gives you good coverage without looking frumpy. I love the vneck also because I think it makes me look less flat chested but when I bend over it doesn’t gap at all! I also have minimal gapping at the armholes and no bra peaking out, so yay for this cut.

I expected the dress to relax a little and it definitely has. It’s extremely comfortable and I love the straight cut. This reminds me a bit of the summer midi but dare I say I like it a smidge better? Just feeling like the coverage and cut make it an easy every day dress, more casual than summer. Very very easy to layer and accessorize
I love it with my favorite Jean Jacket which I’ve talked about before!

I also just received this Sari Skirt (made from vintage Saris) from Julahas and it works so great over the dress! I love them together.

Finally, I tried Milena with Greta on a whim and I was shocked at how easily and simply it layered on top and felt crazy comfy too. I’ve really never worn a skirt over a dress but this combo makes me a believer!

wool& Milena with a Julahas belt? Absolutely love it!

I intended to review all five pieces in one post, but this is just getting too long!  Click here for Part 2!
