T-shirts: This one is a no-brainer. We all have our favorite t-shirts. I get that special shopper’s high when I find the trinity of all t-shirts. Those are the ones with the optimal combination of fit, softness and style. It doesn’t have to be anything fancy, in fact, my favorite t-shirts tend to have a worn in, vintage vibe. My old Queen concert t-shirt is one of my favorites, I feel kind of hip when I wear it. Unfortunately, my teenage daughter has taken possession of said t-shirt, so I need to find a new one to get that “hip” feeling back (and I’m not talking about bursitis).
Silk Blouse: My current obsession is with silk blouses. The obsession is partly due to the 10 year hiatus I took from silk blouses during my kids’ ‘sticky finger stage’. Now that I have the all clear, I am a woman possessed. I love the way they drape and instantly make an outfit look polished.
Tropical/Floral: This season the style gods have gifted us with some beautiful floral print tops! From the navy and white gardenia print blouse from Vince (shown above) to the brilliant blue and white chrysanthemum blouse from 0039 Italy (top of page), the options are endless.
Linen Poncho: Whether it’s black or a blue and tan ikat print, a linen poncho can actually be quite chic. They are fun to accessorize, comfortable and flattering, fitting for countless occasions.
All of these styles, and more are at Quinn and Foster, located in Downtown Bellingham at 128 W. Holly Street.
