Gap supersoft tee, Gap Factory Store, $2.97
Linda Allard Ellen Tracy silk wrap skirt, Goodwill
necklace, Forever 21
This tee combines two things I cannot resist: stripes and a bargain. As much as I love stripes, I haven't doubled up on them yet, so this skirt was a fun pairing.
One puzzling thing about this skirt is its construction. When I put it on so the flap is in front and the tie is at my right hip, there's a seam running down the center of the front flap. But when I tie it on the left, the flap is in the back and the front is seam-free. Every wrap skirt I've seen has the flap in the front, so I wear it that way. But it strikes me as strange that it'd be sewn with a seam running down the middle of the front ... although the pattern is matched up neatly, it's still an odd choice.
Hope you had a wonderful Christmas if you celebrate the holiday! We enjoyed a lazy, quiet day at home and did some cooking. My sister always leaves before New Year's Day and misses out on the Japanese food we make for New Year's, so this year we had our New Year's chow early. We enjoyed nishime (a kind of stew or soup with chicken, bamboo shoots, carrots, seaweed, and more) and also made apple blondies for dessert.
