I was super excited to get this top in the mail when I ordered it in March! I went on a crazy OTS kick and anything under $25 just had to be mine. I’m typically against the color red. One, because I don’t think it looks good against my skin – two, because it was one of my high school’s colors and I got so sick of having red on EVERYTHING – and three, because I find a lot of reds to not be true red and look pretty cheap. Alas, on my 16th birthday I got a car that, you guessed it, was red. I think since then I’ve tried opening my mind to this primary color little by little. I’ve certainly incorporated more red into my wardrobe and especially love it as an accent. It was a big deal when I got my first pair of red shoes a few months back. And I have to say that I love them!
Anyway, back to this top… so as you can imagine the red embroidery on the sleeves was a bit iffy for me since it’s..well.. red. I thought for summer and my vacation, though, it’d be the perfect pop of color against a white look! So that’s how I styled it – with white overalls and my chucks (which desperately need to be cleaned)! I L-O-V-E these white denim overalls I got from Old Navy and wear them almost once a week (I love them that much). The day I wore this look it was a bit chilly in Savannah and my mom and I were doing a trolley tour of the city so I thought I needed to be a bit more covered than this top allows.
My one hesitation about telling you to go get this top now is that it is cropped. I’m not much of a crop top girl myself so that was a bit of a turn off when I got it. But that just means it’s going to be a shirt that I pair with a lot of high waisted jeans and shorts! If you love crop tops or aren’t bothered by them then absolutely go grab this top! It’s a great deal! Also, the color of the embroidery is much more vibrant in person than online – seen here. Check out the pics above to get a more accurate representation of the color!
