The latest Lands' End Canvas catalog that came in my mailbox about a week ago, got me very excited about warm weather outfits, so I took a little drive to check out some of their offerings in person.
Cap Sleeve Cable Sweater in True Navy, $49.50, available here
Pleated Pattern Skirt in Persimmon Stripe, $59.50, available here
Although this sweater felt slightly thick and well-made, it just wasn't cutting it for me and the fit was the main issue. The design made it very boxy and I don't care for sleeves that sit out like these do. I know this design may work for some and it looks much cuter with a tee underneath like shown on the website. Overall, this is a great quality sweater and I would give it a complete thumbs up with some design tweaks. As a note, I sized down in this and it was still slightly roomy.
This skirt, on the other hand, got a definite thumbs up. It sat on my body with no poofing issues in the hip or behind areas, it has pockets and the length wasn't super short or too long. It is available in several other patterns and colorways too, so I would certainly recommend this for a fun spring/summer skirt.
Nautical Sweater Jacket in Bisque/True Navy Stripe, $79.50, available here
Gathered Full Skirt in White, $49.50, available here
You guys should snatch this up soon, it appears to be going in many sizes on the website!! This is another good quality knit sweater jacket. It was well fitting, has cute button detailing and such a sailor vibe. If it was just a smidge longer, I might have thought about getting it. It isn't cropped, but could be a touch longer. You might need to size down in this also.
I know who to go for skirts now because like the striped one, I loved this too. It has pockets, the right amount of fullness and fits quite nicely. My only issue is that it doesn't come in other colors besides black. :(
Boatneck Sailor Dress, $59.50, available here
Lightweight Twill Overcoat in Light Khaki , $130, available here
Umm, I can't believe I'm even showing this side view.
Flasher on the loose!!
I must be having a stripes moment. This is a great casual weekend, just throw it on kind of dress. It is fitted, but not in a tight way. It could definitely use a belt for some waist definition, or a chunky necklace and maybe some cute espadrilles. I have a whole outfit planned for this dress although I'm still on the fence.
Nothing is more classic than a trench coat and you can't go wrong with this one. It's a great quality piece (like everything else they make) and look at that striped lining! I believe this one ran true to size.
I would highly recommend buying from Land's End Canvas. I've ordered twice before and after my first purchase last year, they sent me a thank you card. How cute is that!? Items are pretty reasonable priced and you will sure get your money's worth in style and quality. Please check reviews and measurements before buying because their sizing runs a bit larger. I sized down in many of these items.
Also, consider signing up for the catalogs as they usually offer free shipping most of the time (if not all the time).
