It’s all this shirt’s fault. I’d had no intention of clothes shopping so soon after Christmas…but Avenue is right next to the doctor’s office and this shirt was hanging in the window and it looked like something I could combine with several other pieces in my wardrobe, so…I drove away. Ha. Tricked ya!
Went home, had some lunch. Could Not Stop Thinking About the Shirt. Drove BACK to Avenue. Found the shirt inside…and as long as I was going into the fitting room anyway I grabbed a couple other things on the way.
In the end, the plaid blouse did not pass muster. It was too…flimsy. It was a lightweight rayon and didn’t have enough body to stand up under a cardigan, which is what I wanted it for. So back it went.
BUT…I *have* been needing a couple more athleisure type tops to wear over leggings and sneakers, and this soft supple sweatshirt w cute asymmetric layered bottom filled the bill. It came home with me.
AND…two very nice lightweight long-sleeved tees – a light grey and a cream (cream not shown)…also made their way into my bag…
And THIS, waterfall thermal knit hoodie, very soft, very fluid, easy to wear…also came home with me. It looks nice over either of the long-sleeved tees.
So, for once a SUCCESSFUL try-on…and just when I’d been sort of down on Avenue. Sorry, old friend. You can still be my resource for leggings and sporty tops.
