An Unusual Mix
It's funny, I'd been wearing these came ankle pants for a few days running (only with a grey wool sweater instead of this top…it's still sweater weather here, do not be fooled). I put on this top thinking I would experiment a bit with the bottoms until I found a look that worked, but before I even got to try any on, I caught a glimpse of myself in the mirror and realized that I kind of liked this girly, sheer floral appliqué top with the cammo pants. The mixture of hard and soft, the contrasting textures…it almost feels a bit like print mixing, only maybe not quite as bold. Plus, the top kind of dresses-up the rest of the look, thereby distracting everyone from my epically dirty hair.
Normally, I run a mile from anything sheer, because it always seems you are on a lifelong search for just the right thing to wear underneath, and once you find it (if you're lucky enough to find it), you are stuck with a top that you can only wear under one other top. Essentially you now have two garments that you hardly ever wear. This top gets around this phenomenon by having a built-in t-shirt lining underneath. Now, that's what I'm talkin' about! Sheer garments for lazy-asses like myself who are fed up with finding the perfect underneath shirt.
