Last time I wore this shirt (and photographed it) it was summer, and I was in Berlin. It was the perfect combination for the jeans I wore then. It has been perfect for spring in New York, awkardly paired with a mis-matched shirt. Worn under a jumper–as a pop styling surprise. And yes, before the heat wave, tucked under a different pair of jeans. Jeans, that somehow, tighter (along with the shirt) with even a different kind of life to them…
Some of my favorite tops have tiny holes, or are stretched beyond their original form. And though it seems I’ve gained weight over the winter (more on that soon), this shirt is being worn again this summer. Same. But different.
Here’s how I did it:
+ A simple thin printed top that can be worn under, over, summer, fall, with a bra and without.
+ Vintage high waisted denim jeans. Or ones that look like such.
+ A pop of color to bring the summer in full swing.
Off you go!
Any things of your own that are surely past their life-span, but you wear them anyway?
