g.i. jane.

i don't think i've seen mesh since the eighties...
and even then, i didn't wear it.
crochet, maybe. mesh, no.
i hate the fussiness that goes along with wearing see-thru tops. it's hard to find the perfect underthings, and if you have tank top straps and bra straps showing, it's just messy. i got this top for christmas and immediately thought g.i. jane. maybe because of the color. but then again, i'm a sucker for anything racerback, so it got the green light.

this weekend we said another farewell to my nephew who went back to college after the holiday break. this time for the long haul...six months. my sister got a little teary eyed towards the end of the night. i guess it doesn't get any easier
letting go of those kids.

Way to bring mesh back girl! I've had a mesh top in my closet forever that I have been trying to figure out how to make work. I love that you kept everything else simple. Love the color too! I don't even want to begin to think about my kids going off to college! :-(

Mesh normally reminds me of a boyfriend I had in high school with the teen-'stache and mesh half-shirts. LOL

But this one is nice, and you've paired it up well.

Very cool tank. Love it.
Thanks for the compliment on the hair. I love how drastic it is.
You could totally go half lighter with the right stylist.

Great necklace!

I really liked the result! Not at all messy! I had some tops a few years ago, that had mesh, but they came with their own under-top, so they looked nice!
Really liked the jewellery you chose!

you are in my brain, woman. just this weekend I was browsing some random site looking for mesh tops. granted, it was to work out in, but now that I've seen yours, when the shopping ban has lifted, I may have to look for one to wear a la OOOOOOOMPH!! Love it!

I agree with you about mesh. I used to have a black tank top but never wore it because it was annoying to find something to fit neatly beneath it. Love the green color of this one and you styled it well. Liking the first pic too :)

I like the mesh the way you've styled it, as well as the starfish bracelet.

I know what you mean. I hate finding shirts to coordinate with see thru shirts but I must say you did a fabulous job!! I love this look on you!
Now about that wine!!! Oh my goodness I must try that-RED VELVET- I'm sold!!

Tara said...

So cute! Who'd have thought mesh would make a comeback?

I pass this wine in my grocery store and wonder if it's good all the time! Next time I'll pick up a bottle for sure now.
You look fab in that racer-back...arms to make GI Jane jealous;))

letting go is hard. i like mesh tops when i run or do my exercise routines. suddenly, it's also important to look good while exercising. i am going gaga of Stella McCartney for adidas.

Tiffany said...

You look like you could kick butt! I love that shirt on you. And that last photo is simply gorgeous!

SpryOnTheWall said...

I can't even imagine my girl going off to college, I'll be a mess when that day comes for sure. Seriously swooning over the starfish cuff!

Corinne said...

I know EXACTLY what you mean about the hassle of layering! But you pulled it off great & look fab! Love the starfish :D
