Sometimes things are just meant to be. A couple of weeks ago my mother told me that had some casual clothes – mostly tshirts which were now surplus to her requirements.
In the spirit of my relatively streamlined wardrobe and a lack of need, I refused most of them. However, this one caught my eye.
I had no intention of rushing out to buy a pink and white striped rugby top but when I saw this in the pile I simply fell in love with it. This top is very lightweight and perfect for our generally mild weather for about 6 months of the year.
After wearing it for a couple of days when I first received the top, I washed and ironed it. While ironing it, I noticed that there was only one button on the placket. The button was white and I searched my collection of numerous white buttons but could not find any suitable ones but discovered that I had 2 pink buttons that were the right size.
When I was planning what to pack on our upcoming trip to the UK I decided to include this top. Even though it is quite light, it is loose enough to wear a thermal top underneath it and with the addition of a warm jacket I would be quite snug when out and about.
Even though this was an unplanned addition to my wardrobe, I am confident that it will be perfect for my needs and get plenty of wear.
