SO, we're smack-dab in the middle of summertime. The heat's upon us, and in Florida, that means you can expect 100% humidity to go with it. It can be a less-than-comfortable end result, for climate.
When faced with this sort of weather, what does one wear? Something light, comfortable and summer-y of course.
The shop Assaf Pelleg sent me a fun summer tank/tee and it certainly fits under the above description.
One of the most awesome things about this review is where it came from.
That's right, Israel! I was so excited to get a package from one of my favorite countries. It's not every day you see a package with Hebrew written on it! ^_^
The shirt came with this pin, at least, that's what I think it is. Personally when I first saw it in the box, it looked like packing material. I think it's rather strange for a pin honestly, but I guess somebody, somewhere wouldn't mind wearing it.
The shirt is extremely lightweight, and very see-through - I added a black tank underneath for modesty.
I simply adore the pattern. It's so cute, and so perfectly summer-y! I don't think I've ever seen a shirt that had sunglasses covering it.
This is probably my favorite thing about the top, and it's also what first caught my attention in the beginning while browsing the AssafPelleg shop.
There's only one thing I don't like about this shirt.
You can't really tell in these photos, but the blouse has a fold of fabric that crosses the midsection diagonally, and while some women would be delighted with this addition, for covering their tummy regions, I am not a fan of it personally.
Actually, at one point my aunt said she had thought I'd gained a little weight, wearing this shirt.
(I'm not one to go making decisions based on what others say/think about it, but...The last time somebody told me I looked like I'd gained some weight...I can't even remember that time if it was in existence at all. So, yeah...)
It's not the pattern, or fabric itself. It's that fold running across the front. My mom said she would gladly wear a shirt with that kind of fold to help cover her abdominal region better. For me, it just poufed out and made me look pregnant...which I'm not.
So. This would be the perfect summer top if not for that fold. It does have a cute pocket on one side of the chest, which I like, but otherwise I'd totally opt for a version of this shirt without that extra bit of fabric.
That's just my take.
I'd still recommend this store, however. I'm a huge fan for a number of reasons right now. One, the clothes are made right in Israel! Two, it appears to be quality stuff. Three, very professionally-presented and organized. I could go on, but that might get boring for you readers so how about you just go check out AssafPelleg for yourself?
