East Meets West

I was hurrying to meet my friend for drinks one evening while in the Garment District on a fabric run and I came across this Indian unisex tunic.  I have no idea why I picked it up, it wasn't my typical style wheelhouse at all.  But I was so drawn to it that, just like that, I bought it, raced home, put it on over my leggings and headed out.  And that's definitely not like me at all, to just buy something and add it half-mindedly to my very particular Tiny Closet.

But something seemed special about it and I've had it ever since.
 I originally wore it as a statement piece with the other parts of my outfit subdued and spotlighting the tunic.  But on our way to the beach last week, it was a little chilly and I grabbed the tunic to wear over my cutoffs.  What an awesome juxtaposition!  It turned out looking so fun and unassuming.  A pleasant change to the usual West Coast tee and cutoffs.  An East meets West sort of deal.  So much better than how I was traditionally wearing it before.
So even though this piece is made for much less rugged outings, it's so roomy and light that I like to wear it on long walks or hikes, to the beach or just with a pair of worn jeans.  Just a kick-around top.  Only, nicer to look at.
