Gap Chiffon-Trim T in Pale Plum and Silver Accents

I'm back after the long weekend! It went by way too quickly so here's an overdue post of a work outfit from last week. Of course recent holiday shopping for others also meant unintentional shopping for myself. *sigh* I picked up several long-sleeve tees from Gap (on sale of course!) that are perfect for layering especially since it's been getting chillier in SF. Luckily for me, the Gap I went to in Downtown SF had a plethora of colors to choose from. I love basic long-sleeves, but this time in addition to 2 others, I purchased one in a mauve (aka pale plum) color that I don't have anywhere else in my wardrobe at the moment. I think long-sleeve tees can really be dressed up or down depending on the accessories.

Accessories: F21 faux pearl earrings (similar) -- Lovisa beaded bib necklace (similar) -- F21 bangles (similar) -- silver mesh ring from HK (similar)

I wanted to showcase the Gap chiffon-trim T without the cardigan (I am wearing a cami underneath though) so you guys can see how it really fits. It's definitely a pretty long shirt with some room in the back but it fits my arms well. I also adore the softness of the cotton fabric and color! I probably would have preferred a Petite size but couldn't find any at the store.    
Hope everyone enjoyed their Christmas weekend and had a lot to eat...I know I did! Did you get some amazing presents?

  3. i totally agree with you about the long sleeves shirts being able to dress them up or down! i need more of them. i love that you paired it with the statement necklace to dress up the outfit. i'm jealous that you can wear flats. i love pointed toe flats, there something so sophisticated and chic about them.

  19. pretty flats, karen! thanks again for your comment :) i discovered that sponging on the glitter was a good way to use that one nail polish since i love the glitter but usually want the base color to be even more sheer. for my topknot, i just gather my hair in a ponytail (you can put an elastic here but i usually don't) and just start twisting it around itself, into a spiral kind of shape. then i put an elastic around it, and use large bobby pins (since my hair is super thick) to secure different points of the bun to my head, and then a few small bobby pins for extra security. :) happy new years!
