The loose drapery style

I brought this striped top home from Japan, where I visited about five years ago. I really love the unique fit and style of this top - the drape and stripes combination provides an unusual look. I think I'll miss this Japanese style top when it's time runs out and it'll be thrown in the trash.
Actually, during most summers I wore this top just with shorts, but this time I decided to wear it with a maxi-dress. So it's something new for me. I think it has an even more Japanese look this way.

Alena love this Navy Nautical Outfit and how everything is loose and it flows. The long tunic tank and hat look great here. I am in love with your sneakers, especially. =)

Thanks so much for linking up with Budget Babes. You can link up a second outfit if you like.

Oh, cute! All the pieces are pretty for summer themselves, but combined are wonderful. Great, easy print-combining! Looking pretty!

Don't you love traveling and picking up an item of clothing? You'll always have a cool memory connected to it. And this top is pretty sweet- can't go wrong with stripes!
