I have a pretty relaxed office dress code, which is why, on Cinco de Mayo, I decided to celebrate in a vintage top with embroidered flowers. Little did I know that nobody quite understood my choice of clothing until the next day, when I expressed my disappointment that I had been the only one who had dressed up.
“Oh that’s why you wore that!”
Though I can’t say I wasn’t slightly embarrassed, I love my little flea market finds, that flowy top being no exception. Even if Cinco de Mayo is still almost a year away, this Anna Top has a wonderfully cheery feel, with bright colors in a gauzy material. So, while I still might get some odd looks if I wear this out, it’s impossible not to feel slightly transported to a more relaxed, tropical location.
