New to Evy’s Tree this week is a capsule that is a lovely combination of the approaching spring days, and a visual reminder to slow down a bit and take care of yourself. The brand new Poppy in Mellow Rose is a slim-fit, girly, unique airy top featuring two quirky front ruffles, a ruffled hem, and a hood that is dyed to match the cotton drawstrings. Echoing a soft athletic mesh top but with a feminine tone, this top is ideal for everyday spring wear all the way into summer beach wear. It can be paired with our new ruched Joggers, any of your Skinnies, denim skirt or shorts.

doesn’t mean you don’t desire more,
it means being thankful for what you have
and patient for what’s to come.

Sometimes, we find ourselves not where we envisioned we’d be by now. As a culture, we’ve come to idealize the happy-ever-after Hallmark movie perfect version of how life should be; that filtered, cropped, and edited picture of the Life We Will Live. And yet, we find that life is messier than we’d like and harder than we imagined! Marriages are hard work to maintain, our parents grow older and it becomes up to us to lovingly care for them, kids are a LOT of work, jobs don’t fulfill us, and society presents us with Barbie-body expectations that will never match the body we see in our mirrors. It would be so easy to get discouraged and disillusioned. But here at Evy’s Tree, we love to face those emotions with giant hugs of understanding, encouragement, and inspiration. That may sound like a cliche, but please know that we earnestly mean it when we speak about wanting to build a community of women who are real; embracing their bodies, lives, reality, and dreams with strength and dignity…and with the loving support of us and the women in our little world! We’d like to encourage you to look around and instead of seeing the dust or cracks in your life, focus on the beauty. The things you do have, the love that is poured into your life by people who honestly care about you, and the blessings abundant in your sphere. We may not have everything we want or desire, but each of us surely has so much for which to be thankful. Take a moment this week to deliberately pause, look around with a deep breath, memorize the sweet moments that come your way, and make a conscious effort to bloom wherever it is that God has planted you for this season!
So many of you have gotten to know our gorgeous IRL model Korey, and we knew we needed to bring you a special hoodie to honor her! The Korey in Space Grey is a classic front-zip hoodie with that Evy’s Tree flair you expect. In a cool weather necessity of heavier weight French terry fabric, the Korey also features a hidden front zipper placket that provides an extra wind barrier, exposed front zipper pockets, and a contrasting ivory trim on the hood and matching woven ivory brass-tipped drawstrings. The detailed seam construction and set-in sleeves continue the feminine lines, and the pièce de résistance is the ivory peplum bottom ruffle. In a foundational neutral grey hue, the Korey is designed to go wherever you need to take it. Pair it with our Ruched Joggers, any of our Skinnies, or even with a dress for the flexibility you’ll enjoy with this uniquely Evy’s Tree piece!
Joggers are one of the ultimate comfort items and one that is essential for every woman who has a long list of things to get done! Our newest Joggers are designed with that new take on the classic sweatpants; a ruched ankle for optimal fit and wear. These flattering Joggers are a longer fit with two full front pockets and one (right back) pocket. These Space Grey Joggers have the contrasting ivory waistband and thick woven drawstring with brass tips that make it a perfect pair for the Korey, or it can be worn with any of your other closet pieces.
