As much as I love clothes, I have a very complicated relationship with tops. Not shirts so much because I have an entire drawer of band t-shirts, but with actual cute tops to go with my skirt collection. It's not that I don't like tops or that I don't sometimes look for them. It's that I don't know how to. I'm picky. I don't really love constricted necklines or sleeves. Too short of a sleeve is weird too, right? If it's button up, it probably will gap at the chest or be baggy everywhere and then, and then there's the whole thing that tops usually cost more than a dress. A dress is basically an outfit. So...what's the point?

This is my actual thought process and why I am mostly lacking. I have been making an actual effort to look and purchase tops. I generally end up giving them away, but at least I try. This top though? I scored it at the thrift store for a mere $1.50. I didn't expect it to work, but it fit like a glove and I can see potential and unlimited outfits with it. Jamie is our newest Flock Together member and I'm over the moon because she and I are under five feet tall soul sisters. I just made that up, but we are both small and this skirt belongs to her. I realize the shirt is hardly showcased in these photos, but that just gives me an excuse to wear it more often, okay?

This head warmer I am wearing was a gift from my sister, Lisa! She's the best. I send her photos of expensive items I see in the store and she whips up a better version in multiple colors for me. It's the perfect solution to staying warm, stylish and avoiding hat hair.
