You know those days that start off cold, but then warm up by the afternoon?
This outfit was made for those days.
When it’s cold in the morning, I can layer my wool cardigan over this long sleeve top, and I’m set.
Then, when it warms up, I just shed the cardi, push my sleeves up, and I’m ready to go. My long sleeve top may look sweater-y, but it’s actually quite cool. It’s made of breathable cotton and the boxy fit allows air to freely circulate, cooling me off.
Taking it even further, I could also stash a pair of flip flops in my bag and swap out shoes too.
Here’s the outfit, sans cardigan.
Also, wearing sunglasses indoors is cool, don’t you know? :)
A few of you have been asking me about pieces I’ve taken to the tailor, so I thought I’d start pointing them out as I post them. First up? This striped top!
I found this top at Madewell a few years ago, and I fell in love with the structured fabric and the boxy fit. However, it had a high-low hem that fit awkwardly and just didn’t work for me.
But then I had an idea: I took it to my tailor and asked her to make the hem even all the way around. She took about four inches of fabric off the back, hemmed it up, and that was that!
It was a super easy, inexpensive fix, and now it’s one of my favorite tops.
I hope you have a fantastic weekend. :) See you Monday!
