I took a quick cruise through a boutique yesterday where I have found some nice items in recent years. Almost nothing appealed to me — this year continues to offer little that works for my style. Everything was smocked, spaghetti strapped, or short. Either shapeless or bodycon, almost nothing with a bit of structure.

This top was an exception. I like that the sleeves are more architectural/sculptural than puffy. And the color palette works for me — the blue would work nicely with denim. I was in a hurry and not sure of it, so left it behind.

I wonder how the sleeves would fare after laundering. Didn’t have a chance to look at fabric content or care instructions — as a summer piece I’d want it to be easy care. It felt like cotton.

The sleeves button at the bottom — and that is a little tight on my big arms but I can unbutton or move the button over. I love the collar style and the cropped length is perfect for me.

What does the YLF hive mind think? Worth returning for?
