I would love to be able to claim that these photos were shot inside in order to take advantage of the windowpane theme, cleverly incorporating the windowpane motif of my top with the French doors inside our house. The reality is that it was so cold and rainy outside, even if I could have stood it long enough to take a photo (nope), the wind just simply wouldn't allow me to do so. I had hair stuck to my lipgloss the instant I walked outside. That's a great look. Such is the fate of the personal style enthusiast who lives in Scotland.
I found this Narcisco Rodriguez for Design Nation top last June while I was home in the U.S. on a thrifting mission, and have been meaning to show it to you for a while. I forget how much I paid for it, but it would have been pretty cheap. It is 100% silk, and I love the cropped, boxy shape and the windowpane trim. It even came with a silk camisole built-in, which I love, because I find sheer items to be kind of a pain in the ass sometimes; you often have to put just as much thought into what goes underneath the sheer top as you do the entire look, if not more. I tend to shy away from sheerness for that very reason. I like things that are easy to wear. I tend not to reach for them otherwise.
In addition to its ease of wear, like so many of my printed and textured wardrobe items, this top is an accessory unto itself, and requires very little in the way of accompaniment. Perfect for getting ready in a hurry.
