Summertime…and the livin’ is easy! Dressing should be easy too, but easy need not mean ordinary. When I spotted this shirt recently in Mint Julep (a small boutique in Harvard Square) it was love at first sight – it was not a bargain so I tried to resist but it kept calling me! “Helllooo Candy…you know you want me…just try me on…Haha!”
Sometimes I will try on something because it might not fit well, may not look good on, so I can walk away with good reason. Well, not this time. Fit well, felt great (Tencel, not cotton), and I loved the relaxed style with all the cool appliqués. Perfect over my waxed cotton jeans, will also be great over shorts.
Also great with these JSlides that have become a summer favorite – they are so comfortable without looking ‘crunchy’ and they give you a little height. True to size should you order them online.
On this particular day hubby and I were headed to the Cape for a weekend away. For potential cool temps, a navy fitted Burberry jacket was a classy balance to the edgy/casual shirt.
Ready to hit the road….BUT WAIT! True story: in the car, about a block away from home, I felt that something was missing. “You need to go back?” Peter asked casually…Yes. Please…Thank you.
