Charlotte Taylor Adelie Blouse
Ok people, I NEED this blouse. How cute is it?! I was shopping online last night at anthropologie.com when I came upon this top. At first, I didn't know what the print was, but out of curiosity I clicked on the picture and to my pleasant surprise found that the yellow print was actually PENGUINS! I immediately turned to John and said, "I HAVE to have this top." Period.
The only thing I'm worried about with this blouse is the fit. According to the customer reviews online, the fit is very odd. Supposedly the band in the middle is disproportionately tight compared to the billowy top half. I haven't been to the store yet to try this on for myself, but I'll be sure to report back with a review once I have. The fit was so odd for one customer that they decided to pass on the blouse and wrote, "I was so sad and disappointed as I left the store penguinless," to which John replied, "She doesn't have to be penguinless - we can give her one of our penguins. We have thousands of them." Ok, I do not have "thousands" of penguins (but that's a whole 'nother story best left to a future blog post.)
This blouse is so gosh darn cute! I love the color combo (yellow is one of my favorite colors), and the peter pan collar is simply adorable. This top would look great paired with jeans and ballet flats (and amongst my ever-growing penguin collection!)
