Tribal Trouble


Soooo, a while ago (perhaps last year?) I found this top at TJMaxx and felt that I MUST OWN IT.  "I mean, look at all those colors!" I said to myself (and probably out loud)  "I could do a million things with this I'm sure".  


Um, sad truth.  I do exactly the same thing with it every time...skinny jeans and a cardigan (cause it is a tank and you know I hate my arms).  Usually it is black skinny jeans and a cobalt cardigan but my DH shrunk those suckers beyond wearing when he "helped" me do laundry after the trip (or I may have also eaten my way out of them, not sure which one is the truth). 

Perhaps someday if I ever manage to lose some poundage (for the millionth time) I will think of a new and better way to wear this.  For now, matchy matchy wins again.  

(Parentheses rock)!

XO,
Alyssa

  1. There is not one single thing wrong with matchy, at least in my book. You look polished and well put together. The colors are beautiful.

  2. I'm actually really liking the matchy pants, Alyssa! Have you tried dressing the tank up with a blazer? And though it wouldn't "match", bright yellow or turquoise accessories might give you some remixing possibilities. This is what I do for a living so my brain automatically tries to come up with other alternatives. ;) But I do think what you have here is solid and cheerful. I can see why you love the tank! ~Sarah of Sarah Hulbert Style
