Have you ever bought something at a store with 100% no idea how you would wear it once it made its way back to your closet? I was standing in a Banana Republic dressing room totally in love (love at first sight type of love) with this green knit top. The problem? I had no idea how to wear it! Yet, there I was, at the cash register, receipt in hand. Ladies and Gents, I just broke #1 Golden Rule of shopping: “Don’t buy it if you don’t know how to wear it.”
You know what? I wanted to wear it so badly, I just knew I could make it work. I stared at my closet for what seemed a full day. Dust began to accumulate on the top of my head. Exaggeration? No way. Suddenly it came to me. (And, of course the light bulb in my closet turned on simultaneously.) My knit tank would become my new favorite summer cover up! I loved styling it with my favorite maxi – it keeps me warm when the temperatures cool down at night and is the perfect layer for strappy dresses not quite fit for the office.
