Outfit of the day: Anthropologie Maryam tank + stripes
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.
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!
