This top was a purchase I made back in the spring as part of my capsule wardrobe. As with my Lululemon leggings, I had intended to wear it as lounge wear, but after wearing it to the gym a few times I decided it was so comfy and light for a workout top that I’d have to relegate it to my gym wardrobe. I should really get more of them so I can wear them to lounge in too–it’s that comfy.
The best part about this top? It can be worn two ways. First, as you see above and below, as a sort of tunic. It pairs well with shorts too.
And when you get tired of the breezy tunic look, give it a knot for a seriously cute update. I love it both ways, don’t you?
A word of caution: this top is very high quality, as all of Athleta’s garments are, but in this case it’s high quality and soft, which means it’s not overly durable. I made the mistake of wearing it with my backpack several times and the delicate fabric on this top got rather roughed up and piled. For that reason, I’d recommend waiting until it goes on sale to purchase one if you like the look–that way if you ever mess it up it won’t seem so dire. They’ve got a nice tie-back version on sale right now, if you’re interested. Or you could just treat yourself. I might. I definitely need this top in more colors.
