A SHIRT STORY

IMG_4489 editedIMG_4494 editedIMG_4498 editedIMG_4530 editedIMG_4491 edited 2Details: Banana Republic navy cropped pants, here  | ZARA mesh abstract designed top, similar here | Franco Sarto open toe heels via Marshalls, similar here |

There’s a story behind this shirt and while it’s really not significant, it’s still a story. I purchased this shirt last summer during my lunch break at work because the shirt I had been wearing that day was too low cut and the pin I had securing the closure was no long doing its job. So since I had a valid reason to go on a mini shopping outing I decided to visit ZARA;  if I was going to get a new shirt to wear I was going to get one that I’d wear often, there’s no sense in investing in something you’ll only wear once. Anyway, I came across this half mesh/abstract scribble designed shirt and I just had to have it, mostly because of the fit. It’s not a crop top; it literally just fits the way a shirt should fit. Oooo! plus the sheer mesh panels give it a fun edge and a touch of sex appeal. It’s funny that I left work to get a more conservative top only to return with an equally revealing one; in my defense it wasn’t nearly as noticeable and was 100 times more comfortable. Isn’t it strange that whenever I wear this top I always recall that considerably insignificant day?  I guess clothing can do that to you, in fact one of my coworkers mentioned this week that if she has an exceptionally bad day in a particular outfit or article of clothing she stays away from it for a couple weeks—precautionary measures I guess. I kinda like how clothing can stir up emotions, or make you recall old (insignificant or significant) stories it makes it that much more powerful. Do any of your clothes hold stories?

Ooooh! Yay we made it to hump day!

DYNAMIC DUO

IMG_1357 edited 3IMG_1374 editedIMG_1406 editedIMG_1407 editedIMG_1469 editedDetails: Kora Rae, lupita croptop in chalk, here | ZARA cropped high waisted pants, here in brick | BCBGMaxazria taupe pumps via Marshall’s, similar here |

Yay! We’re finally experiencing consistent spring weather, and it’s amazing. It only felt right to ditch my black and grey winter wardrobe and pull out my favorite lights and whites. I know you’re probably aware of my crop top obsession by now, but this Kora Rae crop top still remains to be my top contender this spring. It’s reversible, (as shown in my previous post in pink/blush), and this grey/chalk color works well with a variety of color combos; I can’t get over how well it complements my wide-leg cropped pants–hello spring staple! This outfit has actually been named my dynamic duo; the flirty top offsets the wide-leg (conservative) cropped pants. Enjoy the sunshine lovelies!

Happy Monday!
