I have a new favorite shirt in my closet right now:
Seriously: IGNORE THE SHOES! I know they're bad. They are the only flats I had that I could put my sexy custom orthotic insoles in. Since I'm still in physical therapy for my ankle, comfort had to override fashion.
I love the top though. It's from eloquii by The Limited, the split sleeve colorblock shell. I worried when I first bought it because it is a silky non-stretch material, however when it came in, I was thrilled to see that while the front has the silky/drapey/non-stretch fabric, the back is a soft stretch knit, so it fit great. Here are the eloquii images of the shirt, plus the 2 other colors it comes in, which I now want.
I got compliments on the shirt from 2 people at the doctors office as well as the Starbucks barista. Not bad for a 3 hour span of wearing it, right?
I felt so happy in the orange, that I got my nails done in OPI Cajun Shrimp – a perennial favorite of many, but a color I've feared for being “too loud” on me. As always, I got the OPI Axxium no-chip gel manicure by my girl Koula at Bak 4 More Studio in Lexington.
It's safe to say I now have an orange crush.
