Today’s FBFF hosted by Ashley Getting Dressed! We’re doing an up-close and personal look at a favorite clothing item. Instead of just photographing it as part of an OOTD post, show us the little details, the things you can’t see from a far-away shot.
In college I got to go on a Jan Term course to the UK. The class focused on British writers – Shakespeare, Austen, Wordsworth, etc – and took us to a variety of cities ranging from huge, cosmopolitan London to tiny Keswick where all the stores closed in the afternoons until the pubs opened. (That part was a little boring.)
For the most part, we were dressed in stuff like this:
…because it was England in January. But London is a very fashionable city, so I wanted to get something to remind me of the trip that wasn’t made of wool. Not that wool isn’t fashionable. I just wanted something more…optimistic.
So I snagged this shirt from New Look:
This is one of the very few dressy tees in my wardrobe. It’s what I wore for my bachelorette party and I always feel elegant in it. The neckline is lovely, the ruffles and buttons are feminine but not too girly, and the drapes make me feel quite sultry.
