fly, butterfly

top, Forever 21
jeans, Macy's
earrings, local crafter

      I received several compliments about this top, but when I got home to take blog photos, I wondered whether it was a good choice to wear this top as is. What felt cute and easy-breezy looked shapeless on camera.  As an experiment, I belted the top and took a few photos.

      I particularly liked the photo above, as it seemed to highlight the waist definition provided by the belt. It's amazing what the right angle can do for an outfit photo!
    It's probably a very trite choice, but I couldn't resist wearing my flower earrings with this top.

         Tropical Storm Ana resulted in a very gray, wet weekend here in the islands. It was a nice change from the hot, humid weather we've been dealing with! I relished hot cups of tea and Jeff Buckley on repeat.

    I didn't think the top looked shapeless or bad at all in the first photo, but I must agree that adding the belt looks fantastic! I'll have to remember this; maybe loose and flowy isn't hopeless for me, after all!

    And oh man, Jeff Buckley. :D My man introduced him to me a few months ago. <3

  2. I like the way it looks belted and I think it also looks nice loose!

  3. Thanks, Nnenna! After looking at the photos I don't mind it unbelted quite so much.

  4. Aya - after looking at the photos a few more time, the unbelted look grew on me a bit.
    Yes, Jeff Buckley had a great talent - it's sad that he died so young! I actually picked up his album for free; it was sent to the college campus newspaper office and I took it on a whim. I actually didn't listen to it until I heard on the news that he had died. That piqued my curiosity (morbid, but true).


Thanks for stopping by my blog! I love comments, so please leave one if you like. :)
