Sorry for my seasonal absence, summer just isn't my season! Fall and Winter is where I shine! I'm so unmotivated in the heat + humidity here.
Well, it seems that longer hemline blouses are FINALLY coming back around! As someone on the cusp of regular/tall clothing, and busty at that, it's
SO hard to find a top that's long enough to fluidly untuck or better yet, long enough to tuck in and not pop back out.
Last week, I did the unthinkable, and order clothes online at Ann Taylor
that I had not seen nor tried on in store. **gasp!** It's so NOT me! I
returned my first shipment of a tragically ill fitted shirtdress (Let's discuss my shirtdress woes in another post this morning...), and didn't have much hope for #2. Yesterday my sweaters + blouses arrived, and to my surprise, the
cropped sweaters were loose and boxy, and the two cream shell tops I
ordered were long, loose and flowy. One top had a round shirttail hem, and the other was boxy and square with a collar. Both sleeveless. Under the sweaters (same sweater, 2 colors), They give a very different look.
Running late this morning, I threw together a grey/green/gold combo. I rather like this, especially since I find it hard to find a sweater that's not giving me the sexy secretary look up top and is relaxed, yet not sloppy with the blouse underneath.
