I feel a little bit like a Christmas ornament in this shirt, but there’s nothing wrong with some holiday spirit in the middle of July, right? Actually, the shirt does make more appearances around Christmas, because I enjoy being cheesy like that.
Of course, it’s rather chilly in December for a sleeveless top, so it ends up working quite well as a summer option. I just throw on a cardigan while in the office and then can be sweater-free and cool (well, cooler…this 90 degree heat doesn’t allow for cool) while commuting and grabbing lunch.
Because of the ruffles, it wasn’t until I’d worn the shirt a couple of times that I considered adding my favorite strand of pearls. Usually busy shirts don’t need jewelry, but the pearls are the perfect length and add a lady like touch. Plus, they help pull my muted gray shoes (a deviation from my go-to black heels) together with the rest of the outfit.
Check back in December to see how it works as a winter look! 😉
