Tubing (See Jane Wear)

American Apparel tube top onesie, Anthropologie shorts, Steve Madden wedges, c/o Banana Republic necklace, c/o Foley + Corrina bag, Elizabeth and James sunglasses
As mentioned a few weeks back, Eric and I finally painted our bedroom this weekend.  While in the throes of preparing the room, I found a one-piece, American Apparel tube top that I'd completely forgotten about.  I folded it away and thought to myself, 'what was I thinking' then after watching an episode of Sex and the City, decided to pull it back out for a wear.  The episode featured the girls in LA and prior to leaving, Carrie was wearing a cropped tube top with loose, parachute-esque pants.  I remembered how much I loved tube tops in high school, college (and even two years ago--this purchase was is proof) and decided to revive it.  Long live the tube top!


Was it sweltering where you live, too, this weekend?

So funny because I remember myself thinking last year, why do I have this tube top in my closet. Then this year when I bought this skirt, I was hoping I still had it because it was going to go perfectly with it. Luckily I did because I've been able to wear it more this summer than I thought I would.

I saw that Sex and the City episode too this weekend! Oh yes, the weather was super hot here too.

Who didn't love the tube top back in high school?! I like how you've styled it here, making it look completely modern and on-trend. Also, it was SCORCHING here in NYC this weekend...hoping for cooler temps this week!

Nicole Marie said...

if you can pull off a tube top then wear it! they look ridiculous on me and i look like i gained 15 pounds!

Marissa at Style Cusp said...

It was SO sweltering here - I'm on vacation in Maine way up north, and it was 100. I think that is a record.

You've completely inspired me to pull out some of those tube tops I have hidden away and wear them like this. You look lovely, J!

I love it when you find a piece of clothing you totally forgot you had, it's the best feeling, much like finding a $20 bill in your pocket you thought you had spent. I love this outfit, especially your wedges! You are so tanned and I am so jealous!

I will NEVER get tired of a tube top - it is the one piece of clothing - aside form jeans - that I can say I have consistently worn since HIGHschool! I love them. Still.
Pairing the black w/ the necklace looks great!
