What: Banana Republic Floral Silk Tee
Why: When I bought this tee in the Spring of 2009, I was desperate for some tops that fit and that were just plain pretty. It is a little bit looser on me now, and I did, in fact consider giving it away last fall, but I couldn't. I'm glad I kept it. Wearing it brings me joy and makes me feel pretty. It is very thin, thinner than I would usually buy in a tee, but the combination of thin silk and thin cotton knit works here. The wide scoop neck and the soft drape make it very cool and feminine without being frilly. In the past I've only worn it with chinos, but I see heretofore unrecognized possibilities.
