This lightweight merino wool sweater is an oversized and long TTS. I think this would look really cute with tights for a slouchy casual look – but I definitely feel like I needed to size down in it because of the width of the upper arms and chest.
This was enticing because the rulu of this top is unique to this year. It’s the same rulu that was used in the Hill And Valley Mock Neck Crop Top which was a double layer. It feels really luxurious on! I didn’t love the overall look of this on me, and didn’t love the neck please, but because this is a decent length and fit I am tempted for this on markdown. This is a TTS 10.
Slightly longer in the back with a bit of a curved hem.
This is such a minor gripe but I didn’t like the way the neckline turned into the hood, with excess material.
Cool Racerback II Astro Blue
I really like this color but as you know, I’m no friend of the Cool Racerback II. I’ll have to look up the color name on the foreign sites and update you on what it’s called. – Astro Blue
I just realized that this was a size 12 and not a size 10. That’s ok, I liked this fit. I didn’t love the inner mesh neck as you can see from this first photo. It’s very stretchy but also tight so if you get frustrated like I do by getting your ponytail all messy then you will hate this feature. It’s perfect for cold weather runners though since you can pull it up over your face balaclava style. Brushed luxtreme is a really nice, soft and cozy material without looking especially cozy.
Intended use of the inner mesh neck warmer.
Sorry, I didn’t realize this photo was blurry at the time or I would have retaken it. You can see the inner neck warmer is attached. I would probably cut this piece out since it’s not useful for me and it’s more of a nuisance. If you use this for running outdoors it’s a great feature though.

Get Ready Jacket
I didn’t love this jacket but I don’t really have a good reason for it. It just seemed like a boring swift jacket without any special features or design. If you are looking for a basic black jacket without much weather function, this may suit you. This was my TTS 10.
If you are a fan of the Embrace The Space items made out of the super stretchy spacer fabric, the Embrace The Space Pants have been restocked and brought in in another color. The new color is I think Hero Blue, although it could have been inkwell. I’m wearing my pair of Embrace The Space Pants here in these photos and I’ve really loved them this winter. The Embrace The Space Crew Neck also comes in white, and possibly blue. I initially hated this spacer fabric because it gives a really odd shape in the upper body but the material is so fricken soft and delightful and light that at some point I’ll probably get this crew neck to add to my collection. Hopefully on sale when I do. It’s pretty plain, but it’s utility and cozy factor makes up for it.
This get ready jogger is a pair with the Get Ready Jacket. If you like slim cut, cuffed track pants you will like these. I believe these where unlined so you can easily layer them over leggings or shorts. I have a pair of lined track pants from several years ago, and my Base Runner Pants, and these Embrace The Space Pants so I really don’t need another cuffed sweat pant style in my closet. If you are in the market though, these aren’t bad.
