The trendy chest strappy look
Hey guys! It's MONDAY. Just saying that makes me feel like eating some ice cream... [edit: I ate an ice cream cone. I did it - I consumed the forbidden calories] Today I'm sharing some clothing deets...and hope to vastly improve upon the quality of these kind of posts! But bear with me because my experience with this shirt was kind of a love/hate relationship.
Sam was out of town last week for work in Nevada and he left again bright and early this morning for a week of work in Houston - so yesterday we had a fun little date day in Austin. We went to Spartan Pizza (spare yourself, go to Ropollo's instead), Gelateria Gemelli's (get their peanut butter straciatella because it's amazing! But all of it is) and then some jazzy bars on Rainey Street. It was much much needed quality time and it was perfect!
So let me preface the outfit sharing with a few things. I planned on having more pictures but 1. I forgot because I was too excited about time with Sam to worry about my phone/pictures. 2. Going out of your way for an outfit photo takes some serious work of which I had neither the will nor the equipment for and 3. I ugly cried while pouring my heart out to Sam about stuff and therefore had no makeup left for a spontaneous photo sesh.
So anyway, like I said in my previous post, we attempted to put a little more effort into what we wore for our datey day. But since it was still nearly 90 degrees and Texas outside we kept our familiar shorts and threw on some trendy shirts and called it a day. I'm not lying to you when I say I simultaneously loved my shirt yet wanted to throw it away at the same time. It was comfy and fit perfectly and I love the new strappy style - I think it's a flattering touch of detail. BUT this trend was so in-my-face on Rainey St. that I wanted to run and hide from the fifty other girls (okay, three) wearing the same strappy chest look and throw on literally anything else. UGH.
Basically wear a strappy chest shirt (if it's a crop top you get extra trendy points), some booties and a plaid shirt wrapped around your waist with some shorts that show half of your ass cheeks and you're set. You've officially reached BASIC on the trend front. That was me. Minus the crop top, the plaid waist shirt and the shorts the showed my butt cheeks. BUT WHATEVER, it's okay, I own that. I'll try again next time...
With that, I'll say i still really love this shirt. I'll just wear it, idk, not downtown again.
