Hello Monday!! March and spring have finally caught up with me. I’ve not been very good lately at documenting what I’ve worn, or even outfits, and I plan to remedy that ASAP. This week, I’ll have plenty of outfit posts, and I’ll do a recap of what I wore in March, and have a look at my weekend trip to Florida and what I packed.
This James Perse cashmere tee has been such a challenge to wear/style. I got it during a private sale last year, and I’ve only worn it a few times. Now, though, I’ve discovered the perfect ways to wear it; either as a tee like this, when it’s around 70 degrees, or layered over a tank dress for a little warmth on my shoulders.
I took it with me to Florida to throw on over my Lanston tank dress if we were going to be inside in air conditioning and it served this purpose very well. I wore it this past Friday exactly as you see here, and although it was still a teeny bit cool for short sleeves, it’s quite warm on my shoulders, so it felt okay.
Honestly, the sleeves bother me a bit on the cashmere tee; i wish they were either longer or shorter. The length is a little “off” for my larger upper arms. I don’t think there’s anything I can do about it besides roll them up, which I’m not really a fan of either.
Ultimately, I’m not sure this was the smartest James Perse purchase ever, but I do love it, and will try to wear it as a layering piece this spring over tanks and sleeveless dresses. It’s just again more proof that I don’t tend to wear items like short-sleeve sweaters, sleeveless turtlenecks or similar styles that require more “effort” to style than I want to put in!
How was your weekend? Do you wear short sleeve sweaters? What items in your wardrobe are challenges to style?
