I Kinda Had To, Right?


Along with the new skirt, my birthday loot included a couple of pretty shirts that unfortunately didn’t fit. So I returned them to Nordstrom and came home with this in their stead.

I kind of had to, right? Butterflies, on a cotton/silk blend that is my favorite kind of fabric almost in the whole world. I didn’t think the colors would work, but the lepidoptera is more brown than orange and I squeaked in under my personal yellow-hues percentage. With brown Dickers and an Étoile Isabel Marant jacket? Oh yeah.

And I haven’t actually even had my birthday. Nice work family, thank you very much.

    @Susan B, I hope so. I’m thinking with straight leg GAP jeans and my cognac Ecco sneakers, for daytime in the suburbs…

  • I love it, and I am also a huge fan of that fabric. So light to wear in that California heat too. Your family has done well! And HAPPY BIRTHDAY! xox

    @Ann, Everywhere:).

  • That is lovely.

    (if you hang the shirt next to the milkweed, can you grow another shirt by next summer?)

    @JB, They are just so beautiful. I’ve loved them since I was a little girl, and we visited my father’s family’s house in New Jersey where the tiger swallowtails were everywhere.

  • Appears to be beautifully made with prominent butterflies perfectly aligned in the front.
