I had a gift card to loft that was due to expire this month, so last week while they had their 50% off everything sale, I popped in to put it to use. I had been walking around with 2 pairs of earrings and a scarf in my hand, and I still needed one more thing to get full use of the card. as I was about to give up and save the balance for another day, I saw this shirt out of the corner of my eye. it was the only one left in store, and it was in my size. I was drawn to the pretty embroidery on the hem and the sleeves and the way the white contrasted with the blue. I’m usually not one for embroidery, but this was subtle enough and the design/color palette was perfect for the upcoming summer. I also love that it’s mostly made of cotton so that it will be comfortable in the heat and that it’s longer in length than the average shirt, which I always like. I think it would look darling with a pair of white shorts for an outfit that looks put together but is as easy as 1-2-3. you all know how I feel about pieces that do that, so I’m thrilled to have this in my closet. I’m tempted to get it in white, too, since I know this will be in heavy rotation this summer, but I’m holding off for now.
