Dress For Success.

DSC_0381When I was in Australia, this high necked tank top caught my eye at a store called TEMT. I loved the pattern because it incorporated all of my favorite colors. It is pretty long which I like too, the crop trend is hard to pull off at my age so I just don’t even want to try it! I was surprised how easy it was to dress up this top, with a basic cotton pencil skirt and blazer, this became something I could wear to work.

A blazer is a quick way to dress up any tank or cami, I keep that in my back pocket at all times!

Going Out?

IMG_1923Ok, this is misleading because I rarely “go out” but I knew I had to have this top in the event that I ended up at BootieSF one night. If you don’t know what Bootie is, good- let’s leave it at that. But for those of you who do, isn’t this the perfect top for a night of dancing to live mash-ups?

I’ve had this top for about a year and have never had the right opportunity to wear it. Does that happen to you? Should we stop buying pieces in the hopes that we will one day have a reason to wear it? Maybe not, maybe we need to start planning more events around the clothes that we buy or swap with our friends. 😉
