I am not an artist.
My outfit is not made of actual honeycomb.
And yet, I would love it if both of these falsehoods were truths.
I imagine an artist wearing this top. It is so cool. So many different colors paired with an intricate eyelet pattern shaped like honeycombs and a centralized stabilizing mustard stripe.
I told my husband, “Hey, honey, don’t I look like an artist in this?”
And he said, “Well, you look like you are wearing an art project.”
I’ll take it.
I know I have mentioned it before, but I miss my Grandma. She was very proud of our beekeeping family. She incorporated a bee into pretty much every single one of her outfits. I have taken to wearing more bee items since she has passed. It makes me feel closer to her. So, I wore this top with my Modcloth Honeycomb Earrings and bee wrap bracelet.
I first tried on this Gabo Eyelet Tee in one of my review posts back in the spring (found here). I waited patiently for it to go on sale and I was able to grab it in August during Anthropologie’s extra 20% off sale price, sale.
It is a tricky top, because it is so boxy. I paired it with a long tank top to add an extra layer as it is see-through. This is not my favorite shape for a top, but I had to have it based on the honeycomb eyelet and multicolors.
Do you ever dress in a shape you do not love but wear because of a pattern or a color? Do you wear something to remember a loved one by?
