Today's OOTD
posted by Colleen Shirazi on Wednesday, May 9, 2012 at 9:46 PM (Pacific)


Shirt: J.Crew boy shirt in Indian voile
Cardigan: J.Crew Jackie in Dark Charcoal
Earrings: made by me (silver chains, green amethyst, aquamarine) (didn't come out in the pic)
Skirt: gifted
Nude fishnets
Shoes: Cole Haan

J.Crew has stocked these shirts for a while, and I spotted this bluish minty green one...I want to say a year ago, but it's been sitting in my closet, and I'm not any more sure.

In any case, I rather like it, though I don't see buying tons of this model. It's papery thin, a tad difficult to iron...I don't see starching the collar, so it just sort of flops over. It's pretty, though; I don't generally like mint green, but the blue tone elevates this above plain old mint, and the onion-skin fabric feels refreshingly cool. Minor details: a front pocket (even this mundane feature seems to be missing from clothing these days), and the faint sweet scent of Indian cotton, reminiscent of a sunny field.
