Trend trial run: mesh detailing

This sweater combines one of my favourite styles - nautical - with on-trend mesh detailing for a sporty, Nantucket vibe. Our honeymoon, and the start of our first-ever cruise, is now less than two weeks away and I think I'm just excited to wear anything that reminds me of getting on a boat!

This sweater made the cut on my packing list, but it's no longer the tunic length it was before its first washing. Purchasing clothes in the States is always a gamble as you can't return them, but I've never seen a sweater shrink quite as much as this in the wash. The same thing happened to my mom's identical version. If you've had any experience buying things from Sak's Off Fifth's Blue label, whether good or bad, I'd love to hear from you in the comments section!
