So back in February when I said I cheated on my shopping ban, it all started with this one top from Elizabeth Suzann. This is the Georgia Tee in linen. I had been wanting this specific top in this specific color since December and when I saw it pop up on eBay I let myself buy it under the guise that it could technically qualify as a trade (just like I would trade clothes at Crossroads, which I did allow in my ban rules), meaning I sold some stuff on eBay that would more than cover the cost of this purchase (plus that money was just sitting in my paypal account so....). Anyway I bought it and I don't regret it one bit, even if it meant I broke my ban.
The Georgia Tee has proven to be everything I dreamed it would be. I know that's quite a statement about a linen top. But maybe that's the quality you get when you purchase something that is made thoughtfully by a skilled artisan. The Georgia tee comes in OS-, OS, and OS+ and here I'm wearing it in OS. It's such a universally flattering shape that I'm pretty sure almost everyone can pull it off. On me, the Georgia tee is the perfect cropped length, and it has a wide neckline so I feel it makes my neck look longer without cutting deep in the front. And my favorite thing about this top is the sleeves: I love how they perk up at the ends. It really minimizes the chicken wing (tricep) area.
And the washing and care for this is super easy. Just wash cold and I steam out the wrinkles with my handy dandy travel steamer (which I love so much that I think I might do a separate review devoted to this indispensable tool). As you can see, so far I've only paired this with my Grana silk ankle pants (because they go so well together), but stay tuned for more outfits incorporating this top!
