The style challenge for the day was to 'explore your wardrobe and wear a long lost friend'. I thought of this top right away! I discovered it during my big wardrobe clear out as we turned my wardrobe room into baby's nursery, and happily wore it during pregnancy as it accommodated the bump. I haven't worn it for a little while since, so I am hoping to keep wearing it and not let it get lost in my wardrobe again. It is one of those pieces that is quite limited by how you can wear it, as it really only looks good with skinny jeans. But I have so many fond memories with this top, it's a real oldie and I am not ready to let it leave my wardrobe yet.
Although it does look best with jeans, it looked like it was going to be a hot day that morning, so I put on some shorts as baby and I headed out to the books and rhymes session at the local library. On our way home after getting the groceries, it started to rain. It actually felt quite cold in the afternoon, I wished I had worn jeans!

Had a busy morning! Baby T and I had some appointments to get to, and my mother's group was having their first catch-up of the new year. The style challenge for the day was to 'wear something that best represents your personality'. I'll admit, I had no idea what to do for that prompt! So I snapped a pic of my bracelet stack. My wrist was layered with a variety of bracelets, some small and dainty, some big and bold, some inspirational, the same ones I wear every day and that have sentimental value....I felt that mixed bag summed up my personality!
I'm trying to review all of my new purchases after I wear them, to be more thoughtful with what I'm buying and how it works with my current lifestyle and wardrobe. You can read more about why I'm doing this here.
This is the second wear of my new printed tank too, so my purchase review:
I'm glad I bought this. I love the print, and even though it's not my usual size I think it looks okay oversized. It works with maxi skirts, although does look better with denim. Still something I can see myself wearing in a few ways, maybe even with pencil skirts when I go back to work this year. I'm pleased I bought it. Not something I needed to buy, just something I wanted to buy, but still something that will get worn often.
Last worn: Wayfarers (see above), printed tank, denim shorts, Balenciaga studded sandals, Louis Vuitton Speedy B.
