outfit: queer eye, my 90 year old patient, and the plastic problem.

With all the awful things going on in the world lately, I was yearning for a bit of an escape this weekend, and did so by binge watching new Queer Eye.

wardrobe: the short sleeve

This summer calls for the simplest short sleeve shirt and Everlane has made the perfect one.  It’s nice to have a button up that you don’t have to tuck in for those times you don’t want to show the waist line of your pants/skirt.  Keeping it untucked keeps you nice and ventilated in the summer heat. The straight horizontal edge makes this okay.  And because the shirt has a short torso (but falling short of ‘cropped’), it looks great with a pair of high waisted shorts when you’re out of the office.  Plus, since it is 100% cotton it’ll keep you feeling fresh in the muggy summer heat.  Whereas, polyester and silk tend to get clingy and hate to say it (smelly) in this weather.  I also love the A-line detailing of the shoulders which softens up the edges and gives it a modern European touch.  Not to mention, $48 for a well constructed 100% cotton shirt is a pretty good deal for something you’ll probably have on heavy rotation.
