Banana Republic: Silk Ruffle Front Top in Seafoam
Silk Ruffle Front Top: $69
Available in Ivory and Seafoam
100% Silk; Hand Wash Cold
SOLD OUT online
Seafoam color... I really love this color although I don't think it compliments pale skin (or maybe just MY skintone) perfectly. Also, there is no zipper.... making it slighty more challenging to put on, but no weird zipper bump on the side.
Not too 'boaty', even in a Small (sans baby in the belly, I would have gotten an XS)
With white Jackie. I think you could also pair it with a light pink or lavendar for Easter. Do the ruffles look like a hot mess? I truely can't decide.
Here's the deal: I'm not sure if I'm keeping this or not. In fact, after taking the pics for the blog, I put it back in a bag with the receipt with the intentions of returning it. But, after doing this post, I'm kind of changing my mind and have a new fondness for it. A major reason I'm considering keeping it now is because it's hand washable. That is a difference maker for me.
I am definitely swayed by the color, which I love and don't have any camis or tanks in yet. Although, do I love this design? And, will I love it come August and Sept when I'll get the most wear out of it AFTER I have my baby?
Chime in: Should I keep this? I got it for about $55 after BR's latest promo.
UPDATE: Check out this Silk Dahlia Tank at Ann Taylor on sale for $29. This is a great alternative on the cheap... sizes are going FAST!
