What’s This Elephant Business?

When the weather turns warm after all those months of north-eastern chills, nothing feels better than slapping on that first tank of the season and pairing it with a light denim skirt and some cute, cushioned sandals.  Or at least I think so anyway.  I’m all about comfort in the summer — wearing things that my body can breathe in, that I’m not constricted and confined in (like one would be in a bodycon dress more appropriate for the autumn or winter), and that look adorable on top of all that.

I think this elephant mosaic tank is probably one of my favorite articles of clothing I’ve ever owned.  Though this can mainly be attributed to my obsession with elephants (I blame my mother) it’s also the artsy trippiness of the pattern and the lightweight feel of the material, perfect for the 90+ degree weather.  And the skirt, well, it’s not the most curve-showing piece of clothing I’ve ever worn, but there’s something sort of 90’s grunge meets 60’s hippy about it that I really love, and that I think has enlightened me to the amazing combination of two epic decades of fashion and culture that I will undoubtedly look for in future ensembles.
