When I first got this top, I swear I was going to return it. I didn’t like the fit, the color. But then one night, we were going out to dinner with some friends, I was in a hurry and the top was there. Staring at me. I picked it up, put it on and never took it off. There was something about it that suddenly, I loved. It felt elegant and elevated. I’ve worn it so many different ways and oh-so-many times.
More often than not, I feel like my wardrobe is full of fun pieces, but not necessarily fancy pieces. There’s a dress, here and there, but it’s mostly practical and functional. When an event, dinner party or something comes along, I have trouble getting dressed. This top is as beautiful as it is elegant and so, so simple. Which still remains my top choice for a piece. I have also styled it with different earrings and hair-dos.
The copper color is very strong. And can feel more appropriate for fall, but I also love it for spring. With a pair of off-white jeans and some casual sandals – just brainstorming here and wishing for warmer days. And on this particular night, it felt special to shoot the look at the doorstep of our hotel. I honestly felt beautiful, tall and elegant – which isn’t that often for me. Even the ponytail was on point. So cheers to that!
