Holla holla! Hope your week is running smoothly! Glam squad, I have a confession, I'm super obsessed with this linen top from Express. It's similar to their popular Portofino top but in a different fabric (still an amazing fit). I try so hard not to buy pieces for my wardrobe that are the same but in a different color.  Operative word here: TRY!  To me, it takes the special-ness away from the piece and then I feel like I'm constantly wearing the same outfit in different colors.  So when I saw this top, similar in style to the Portofino but not in fabric, I ran right to the checkout line! I keep telling myself it's ok because it's a different texture!  Am I right?!?
     This skirt from the Gap outlet is one of my favorite finds and satisfies my need to wear stripes! If you follow along on Pinterest you know I have a true obsession with them! Is that another confession??  The best part about these pieces is that they are so versatile and great for both spring and summer seasons! Happy Friday Eve friends!! Hope you have killer plans this weekend! Happy Mother's Day to all the mommies out there, including mine!!

  1. You probably know I have this exact top and I LOVE LOVE it. Also loooove how you styled it! It looks so great with that skirt. And yes, it's similar to a Portofino in fit, but for me, the linen-cotton fabric makes it quite different. Such a breezy spring/summer vibe and feel to it. And the pocket styling is fun, too. :) Love this look (and not just because I have the same shirt! ha ha)!

    2. OMG, that would be dangerous. And fun. There would be a lot of "put THAT in your blog and post it." ;)

  3. Hahaha loved the title and your confessions. I actually have a similar shirt in a little lighter shade. Mine is silk-linen blend a little see-through. I have many shirts like the Portofino one plus several Portofinons. I am one of those people if I like something I buy it in multiples or have similar pieces like it. I figure why ruin a good thing lol. So you get my OK.

    I adore your striped mini skirt, belt & clutch. I am wearing a striped skirt today also, and a similar-colored top.

    Great minds think alike, not?

    And thank you for the Happy Wish, May your mom have a lovely day as well!! Enjoy your weekend with her. <3 Ada.

  6. I am totally guilty of buying the same piece in several colors. I figure if you love it enough you might as well! But I try and only do that with classic pieces that I know I can style several different ways. Anywhooooo - I am so loving this look - the pastels are so pretty and that skirt is gorge, just like you :-* xoxoxoxox Danielle @ For the Love of Leopard
