Everyone has one – that piece in your wardrobe that you bought because it looked so good in the fitting room but somehow, it ends up hanging in your closet untouched forever. I bought the shirt in these photos before moving to Florida. It looked great when I tried it on in the store, then it got packed up in a box, shipped to Florida, and hung in my closet for a good 4 months without wear.
For me, this top was hard to wear because 1) it’s very sheer, 2) there’s not a whole lot in my wardrobe that looks good with neon yellow, and 3) it’s a flowy top that hides my curves instead of working with them.
Saturday rolled around and I needed to throw something together to wear for date night. The destination was Olive Garden thanks to a free gift card John got at work, and afterwards we planned to see Ted. I wanted something simple but still polished, so I turned to my favorite red skirt. Something made me grab for the neon yellow top and suddenly I’d finally outfitted the impossible top!
My advice for outfitting your stubborn piece? Try pairing it with something unexpected that you would never consider. I never would have thought to put these two pieces together, but I figured I’d give it a try and was pleasantly surprised with the result.
