Do you ever plan an outfit out in your head, put it on, and then your like what was I thinking? Luckily when I bought this top and planned this outfit out in my head for NYC that was not the case! Keep scrolling to find out how transitional this look can be!
My Summer shopping has consisted of adding more white linen tops to keep cool in this ridiculous heat and this top definitely made that list. It has the best of both worlds, a fall/winter layered look but is actually one piece so it is not too warm, but perfectly transitional as well. Find it from ASOS here, I am wearing a Medium and it fits true to size (for me). I am a bit bustier so if you have a smaller chest you could probably go down a size.
I paired it with my favorite black Black Milk leggings, they are so soft, solid ( not see through at all) and have just enough compression. They also don’t slide down at all throughout the day. I wear a size medium in their leggings.
I went with my all black Nike Roche because they are SO comfortable and sleek, when walking around NYC or even Downtown Tampa you def want to be comfy.
The back has some extra detailing with the split, which def adds to it not being so “basic”.
I promise this was ironed but one thing I hate about linen or cotton/linen is that I feel like as soon as I sit down it is wrinkled somewhere again. Maybe I just need to break out the starch, which I have avoided since my early Carrabbas days.
I ended up not bringing this bag with me to NYC but it has been my total go-to for Summer here in FL. This collab between Melissa and Cambridge Satchel Co. is EVERYTHING.
It won’t get ruined by the rain, sand or if a nice cocktail gets spilled on it (thinking cruise life or other outdoor festivities).
This is definitely a comfortable yet cool outfit and still sleek enough for my taste. Wear this to a festival, running errands, happy hour and basically anywhere else.
A blazer can make this a bit more professional and I am thinking of adding in a leather jacket in the fall which will be perfect.
