First, before I tell you all about this colorful top I want to ask you a favor? I’m over on Chippmunk talking about the great deals I get from The Limited and I would love it if you voted for me! Not only is it awesome blog exposure for me but there’s chance I could win a $100 gift card. And you know I’d pick The Limited and show you how to get the most for $100! Just click on the “Love it” button.

Anyway, speaking of The Limited I bought this colorful tank top several years ago via a website that is no longer around. It was called MJR Sales and they sold overstock and slightly damaged items from Express, The Limited, Victoria’s Secret and a few other stores that were owned by the same parent company. Considering I love The Limited I was thrilled to find this top of theirs for $7. It has a small hole near the bottom right hand side that was obviously made when someone use a box cutter to open the box it was in, but I don’t mind. You can’t even see it when I have the top on.

Wearing this tank to the office, though, might not work for everyone. It could probably be considered a spaghetti strap tank and those are usually bad ideas for work. However, it also looks adorable with a cardigan and sometimes I wear it without one anyway. Such a rebel, right?

    Perfect choice of background, in that the geometrics of the building behind you repeat the shapes in your top.
    Spectacular. You and Jason have a wonderful way of back-dropping your photos in a way that really sets up the outfits. I could so wear that outfit, even at my age!!!

    I really like the white/tan combo here! I also really need to find myself a nice pair of white pants, they always look so sharp. Summer stuff is probably going on sale soon, right?

    Yay! Rocking the bare shoulders! I really like this top. I am in to the geometric patterns.

    I voted for you! :) I’ll vote on my work computer too (different IP addresses, heh).

    Voted–done and done! I like that top a lot, and it’s great that you can pair it with a cardigan for a more conservative workplace top. I like your outfits because they help me get an idea of what kind of things I should look for when I go shopping for work clothes. (Well, once I get a job….) I would never think to get a geometric print top and white pants, but now I’m seeing all the possibilities!
