I love this top because it has the feel of being a over-sized like if you were to borrow your husband's (or boyfriend's) shirt - but it fits well through the shoulders and has the pin-tucked details for some femininity. Also it's really soft... what is better than super soft fabric??? Mmmm.....
I told you I would talk a little about how/why I chose certain items... this fur vest for example is one that I debated. In general in the winter I get stuck in a sweater and jeans rut. There is nothing wrong with that, but I don't tend to experiment with clothing or layers in the winter, I just want to be comfy and warm. Then usually by February or March I want to completely trash it all and I feel like a pile of lumps.
For the 30/30 Challenge I decided to actually "challenge" myself with the items in my closet that I LOVE (like this vest) - but that push me to be more creative and daring with my outfits. Usually in a standard 30 day period this vest would only get pulled out once or twice, but now I will be forced to (hopefully) wear it more! And if you are trying new styles or trying to challenge yourself in any way with your clothing: practice makes perfect! If you don't feel comfortable in skinny jeans the first time - dare to try them again!
A year ago, this is a look I never would have tried... but today - I love it!
