A Top Not Like The Others

I've been a crafting/sewing/creating fool lately.  February has overdosed me with ideas and inspiration.  One of the many little items I've put together recently is this open-sided long sleeve tee:


It was actually a bit by accident.  During the fitting, I realized it looked kinda cool without the sides sewn up.  So I left it as is.  It's cute, yes?

tee: Tiny Closet Collection / jeans: American Apparel / wedges: Santee Alley 


Instead of a bra, I went with a simple white bandeau since the sides are completely open.  I put on my high waist jeans and some wedges and was off.  A minimal outfit that is just outside of "basic".  So for the warmer weather days, this is a creative alternative to jeans and tee.

  5. Hello! I've read your blog for a while, but I haven't commented before, I think. Just wanted to say I really like this look and overall I love how you rock comfortable outfits that let you move with sexy shoes (can't walk in heels, myself, but I appreciate them on others.)

  9. I think "just outside of basic" is the perfect way to describe this outfit. The open sides and visible bandeau add a touch of something different -- love.
