Petite tops/blouses so I don't freeze to death in the office.

What has your experience been with silk tops? Specifically in regards to Everlane and/or Equipment if you've purchased from there. What other tops/blouses can you recommend to keep warm and look presentable at work?

I'm moving offices and I need to step up my clothing game. I look really ratty in my old zip up and I want to look more cleaned up and professional in the new office. I get very cold sitting in the office and I am generally someone who gets cold easily.
I'm looking for suggestions and some thoughts on getting silk tops. Specifically I'm looking to order from Everlane and maybe even from Equipment. Can 100% crepe de chine silk really keep you warm? I'm also concerned that the fabric will be cheap. I ordered some silk tops from Ann Taylor last year and they were overpriced and SO THIN and sheer. I cannot wear sheer tops, I refuse. What has your experience been with either of these brands?
I also welcome suggestions for merino wool and cashmere tops or anything that will keep me warm and look classy enough to wear to work. I prefer petite sizing and long sleeves.
Please do not recommend: anything from BR, GAP, Ann Taylor, typical mall stores (quality just seems so poor for the price you pay), cardigans (i hate the way they look), silk underwear.
Preferred budget is under $100 but I know the Equipment blouses run $150-200+ full retail.
