It's a Wrap

In keeping with my new tradition of posting pictures of what I plan to wear to events, here is the blouse I am planning to wear, with brown linen pants, to church on Easter. Originally from Ann Taylor Loft, I found it at Salvation Army this week for $3 American. It is silk, with polyester lining, and a side zipper. This is what it looked like when I pulled it out of the washer, with one little exception: I sewed the wrap neckline in place.

Other fixes for wrap necklines:

  • The most obvious, wear something under it. That would be a topic for an entire post, if inspiration struck.
  • Turn the top around.
  • My personal favorite, and this really does work, a straight pin. Simply slip in a pin vertically. I have never been poked! (But, of course, I wouldn't do it when I would be working with babies.)

What I love about this blouse, besides the fact that I have nothing remotely like it, is that it is a perfect fit with my limited color palette. It goes with everything!
