Surprise

top: Target, pants: Forever 21 (similar), clutch: vintage, shoes: Aldo, sunglasses: Ray-Ban

A story about this top -- it was a quick pickup from Target, and I was thinking that it would be the perfect top to wear with leggings, since it had a longer back. I wore it to work the next day [with jeans], and someone mentioned that they loved the crossed back. I was thinking to myself, "What in the world is she talking about?," but just said thanks and kept going. Later, I was washing my hands in the bathroom when I caught my side view in the floor length mirror and noticed these tails hanging down. Silly me, I never even realized that the back of the shirt was like this! I thought the whole time that it was just a longer tunic. Clearly, I need to work on my attention to detail, but either way, it was a win because I do love the fun surprise that the back of the top gives away.
