I'm back in Berkeley to see my family for the holidays and as usual, this involves rummaging through my sister's and my own leftover clothes in our closets. This morning's treasure was this top, which Rachel conceded could be mine. Given how few stripes I have in my closet, I couldn't very well say no, right? The pattern mixing of scarf and stripes looked great in the mirror, but I'm not sure how well it holds up in photos. One of the funny things about seeing your outfit photographed is you start to realize there's a bizarre gap between things you think look great in person and things that photograph really well. Sometimes an outfit is both, but I think today's leans toward the better-in-person.
P.S. Sorry for the instagram photo, but the best part of the top is the awesome buttons on the shoulders and I couldn't very well let you miss it:
P.P.S. Are you on instagram? Only recently have I gotten obsessed and can see why other people love it so much. My username is whatwouldanerdwear, if you want to find me there.
