Sandals: Urban Outfitters
"I was never one to believe the hype, save that for the black and white." - fun.
If 2012 was the year of the mullet dress, 2013 is shaping up to be the year of the mullet top. These "party in the back" tops are all over the place right now. I must admit I'm not really into the ones that are your basic tee in the front and then have some crazy, kooky print on the back. They seem a bit disjointed to me. However, this little lacy number, I can get down with.
This top comes in many different incarnations on Anthropologie's website. There's the Lace Divide Tee in 4 options, the Lingered Lace Top I'm wearing here in 4 options, and there's even a emerald green one on sale. I was very tempted to get it in a solid color, especially the green one on sale (because you all know how I love me some green), but I decided to step out of my safe, solid colored box and go with this black and white striped version instead. I know, how very avant-garde of me... Anyway, with black and white being the only colors in the top, I knew I wanted to liven things up a bit by adding some color on the bottom, and what better color to gussy up an outfit with than red?
Speaking of bottoms, I suppose I should be upset that my thighs are touching in all these photos. I've heard that thigh gaps are all the rage these days. I think that's one trend I'm just going to have to ride out. I love to get my eat on too much. Besides, who knows? If mullets can make a come back maybe, just maybe, fat thighs can too.
