Shopping can be such a crap shoot at times; you might buy something fully convinced that you’ll love it forever (or at least for a year or two), only to find it necessary to part ways much sooner for any number of more or less foreseeable reasons. Conversely, there are the things you never knew you couldn’t live without … until you get them. Such is the case with this Pleione top I picked up at Winners for next to nothing. I still have no idea why I was so drawn to it in the first place, but I do know that initial instinct was right on the money. This print – so simple, so (dare I say it) minimalist – goes with so many things in my closet, and the fabric and cut are wonderfully comfortable. Jackpot.
Whenever I wear this top, I’m inclined to keep the overall outfit pretty simple – and stick with a black & white palette, plus a single pop of colour. This time, though, I also added a
metric ton a lot of accessories. You can only keep those magpie instincts in check for so long.
