Simple Summer Shapes


I got this white top in a sale last week, thinking it would be a great layering piece. I have been lusting after a top in the newer, boxier, cropped shapes, but have been consistently let down by bad fabrics, weird fit, and a number of other things that prevented me from pulling the trigger.

This one seemed to fit the bill perfectly. It is a thick and heavy knit fabric, virtually indestructible, and should require zero maintenance and hold its shape nicely. There is nothing so versatile as a white top, even for those of us who routinely spill coffee down the front of ourselves.

I didn't envision myself wearing it without something underneath it, but the weather has been fantastically summery this week, and it is actually just the right length to wear with a mid to high-waisted bottom and not have too much midriff (or even any) showing. Yes, it still might show if you raise your arms up over your lead, but for a casual summer vacation day, I think it's perfect. I especially like the way the wide, cropped shape of the top looks against the A-line of the skirt. You don't really need much in the way of accessories at all, because the shapes do the talking.

Stay tuned, as you will undoubtedly see a lot of this piece well into the colder months ahead.

  4. What a great piece. That silhouette suits you. I'm a coffee-dribbler myself, so just always keep a Tide-to-Go pen on hand. ;-)
