The lined silk chiffon Anne Klein tank top has also clocked 2 years in my closet and is much more of a champion, great for packing, belts nicely, and was comfortable in the classroom when I shuck the blazer/cardi to lessen the sauna effects (did I mention our classrooms are not air-conditioned and our first two weeks back have happened in 20 to 30 degree temps?). I generally can't wear orange, but seem to be able to handle it in this combo, and I love the ethnic-geometric print.
Cashmere cardi, so lightweight, is Club Monaco and in its 2nd year. At cpw, this one's practically free, an absolute
The blazer is another mainstay, pictured often in my What I Wore. It's by Smythe, whose offerings as I've seen them this fall have disappointed me in a quest to get one more classic-with-an-edge blazer. Stupidly, I resisted a perfect olive-khaki one in the spring, and now that I want its like, it's not around. (Still, the lesson there is one it might be dangerous-to-my-wallet to heed.)
And the shoes are Repetto, not the ballet flats but rather with a très cool square heel, about an inch. Have to say that while they're classic, I probably wouldn't shell out for another pair of Repettos. On my foot, at least, they're not particularly comfy, and the look can be got for a much lower price. The sole is quite thin, and I suspect they'll need a replacement soon (which may clunkify the look a bit as well). But they are very French, of course, and let me walk a bit of my beloved Paris around with me for the day.
