Wearing lace-up shoes with a summer outfit is possibly a little incongruous and seasonally confused, but I am catching the bus to work today and we seem to be in the middle of a spate of afternoon thunderstorms, so in the interests of dry feet I have avoided sandals.
This top is one that I really think I should be giving a little more love. It has just the right amount of volume to look good both tucked and un-tucked and the gathering at the neckline is flattering. As you can see, I have also had fun with a statement necklace. The top has enough detail that it looks good without further decoration, but I wanted to bookend the black shoes.
