Outfit of the day: Anthropologie Maryam tank + stripes



Outfit Details:

top - Joe Fresh, tank - Anthropologie, jeans - Gap, shoes - Connie, necklace - Ann Taylor Loft

When the Maryam tank first showed up at Anthropologie, I didn't pay much attention.  It seemed like tiers along the hipline was something I really probably shouldn't do. Then I noticed how lovely it looked on S and Bella, and it slowly grew on me until it reached my mental wish list. When it finally hit the sale pages last week, I couldn't help but take the plunge, although I wasn't entirely sold on it for myself.

I.love.it.

The tiers are so pretty without being over-the-top. It can elevate a simple outfit and transform it from tomboy/nautical/basic to girly and fun. While it's still probably not the best silhouette for me (especially with stripes... natch!), I don't care. Sometimes, an item enters our wardrobe not being it is flattering, but because it speaks of our personality, and the image we want to convey so well.

Plus, it is just so darn PRETTY!

The layers here are so fantastic and unexpected! I love the stripes with the super feminine tiers. You look great!

I love the layering! I tried to track down that tank but no luck (I did not go all crazy calling every store) but I think I am really going to kick myself for passing that one up!

Oh, you look just amazing with the mix of stripes and ruffles! You made those stripes look so feminine and girly, I love it. I will definitely be copying this exact look :)

This is such a cute look and the perfect balance between casual and pretty. The necklace provides the perfect finish too!
