Because I have been delinquent in posting for the last two weeks, the next few posts will be untimely summer ideas that I intended to show you sooner. Better late, unseasonal, and rushed than never!
Do you remember this charming top?
It deserves to be worn often. Possibly every day. To that end, I’ve been matching it with various pieces in my closet . . . in my mind.
Option 1 (pictured): With cropped jeans and sandals, for le weekend.
I am wearing a navy blue, silk camisole underneath for two reasons: first, and most compelling, this top is see-through; second, the front is cut quite short in one spot.
But wait! There’s more!
Option 2: with a high-waisted denim midi-skirt and an ivory camisole underneath and camel platform sandals (not pictured, but complimentary links to component parts provided)
Option 3: with a black camisole underneath, black capris, and black flats (not pictured and links not provided because you know what I mean)
Option 4: over a long, column style dress in black jersey (not pictured, not linked and not even actualized because I don’t have a dress like that)
This top is, in a manner of speaking, a statement piece — but the filmy fabric and the gentle contours of its oversized waist are quietly emphatic . . .
There is, however, something quite insistent in this picture. Have you noticed?
Look toward the ground.
Clarification: Do not look at the ground at your feet. Look at the pavement in the photo to the right.
Awesome, comical flatform sandals.
Are we laughing? Or shrieking? Are those exclusionary?
For those who previously denied the plausibility of hideo-marvelous, the proof is here.
One last little detail: a watch strap that echoes the windowpane check of the top.
Enjoy the remainder of the holiday weekend!
