I've been wearing this fun, nautical-type boatneck top a lot this past week. It seems to go with everything.
It's clear now that this top is definitely more friendly with my Summer ensembles than my Fall/Winter outfits. The mystery is solved. I was having that peculiar nagging feeling - the kind you get when you know you bought a great item and it "technically" goes with everything - but something's kind of...off. Like, it's almost there but not quite.
Turns out the vibe was wrong.
I'd been wearing it with high waist pants and skirts, which was fine and bland but what it really needed was sun, a pop of pink and lots of skin!
Enter my favorite good n' tiny high waist shorts. My Milani "Flamingo Pose" pink - the hair (um, of course) and some oxfords. I actually designed and well, made this top myself. But I can say it has never looked better thanks to a solid Summer styling.
As Tiny as I aim my closet to be - you have to let your pieces shine at the right time. It's great to have a "seasonless" closet (meaning all items can be worn all throughout the year) but some items have their best moments in particular times of the year. Being creative is key when cultivating a small wardrobe. But sometimes you should let a Summer top be a Summer top, yes?
I'm so so happy my new hairdo has been received well! Thank you to all the wonderful comments on my big style change. Isn't our hair fun? We can do anything to it!
Which is why I'll probably be hitting up another style pretty soon here.
Like... next week maybe?
These twists have opened a door I'd assumed (with my age and lifestyle) would be closed forever: playing with my hair again! I feel like I'm back in high school again when I had a new style every week, ha! So excited to try some more new things. We shall see :)
Come back for more on Thursday!
