Getting Into The Swing Of Things

My dear friend Sloane gifted us her ridic amazing house in upstate NY as a wedding gift and we finally took advantage of it this weekend. [Yes, you should absolutely click that link and ogle the house pics featured in the NYTimes.] We've had a blast driving around and exploring the area, but just hanging at the house has been so fun and relaxing. See: tree swing. I stayed on that thing 'till my butt begged me to stop.

I thought this Free People top would be country-almost-fall apropos. I have to admit: sometimes when I'm working from home I accidentally on purpose watch the 4th hour of the Today show-- that's right, KLG & Hoda. I kind of live for them. One day they were talking about this top which they apparently both have. Although I'm totally over and even slightly mad at the off-the-shoulder/cold shoulder/bold shoulder trend that took over this spring/summer season, there was something different about this top. The print, where it hits, and of course the extreme bell sleeve. I've easily worn this 5x since I bought it...and bought one in solid black because I'm so in love with it. And that's how you truly know if something in your closet "sparks joy," right?!

OutFIT or LeaveIT?: See aforementioned "I'm in love with this top comment."
