Every once in awhile I get the idea for something I would love to wear and I can see it perfectly in my head. Usually it would fill a critical hole in my closet too. But then, when I consult the internet or my favorite local shops to find this item (or something very similar) I am let down.
When it comes to shirts, white is almost always my go-to choice for what to wear. I have a white t-shirt that I love and have worn many times over the last three years. And thankfully, it still looks beautiful. BUT, I was ready for a grown-up version of my favorite white tee – I wanted a go-to white linen top. I looked around, tried a few different options, but kept running into details that were deal-breakers for me: sleeves that were too wide to fit under a cardigan, hemlines that were too long and would always need to be tucked, off-white instead of white.
It felt like the unicorn shirt.
So I turned to my designer-friend Haley, who owns Only Child, and the Only Child x Seasons + Salt Alta Top was born.
It’s the perfect, everyday linen shirt, in the perfect shade of white or Salt. (See what we did there?)
As usual, Haley’s talent and eye for detail are demonstrated in this Salt Alta Top. I loved it when she first released it in Beige, Cotton Ikat and Denim, but White has my heart, and it has truly made this style come to life for me. The trapeze cut hem lends a polished and finished look without the need for any front-tucking. The longer hemline in the back also means, no unwanted drafts or exposed skin.
And the part I’m most excited for? I can easily layer sweaters/cardigan/jackets over this top without fussing over the sleeves! I anticipate my Salt Alta Top being a year-round closet winner.
I look forward to experimenting with several ways to style this top including: with my Kamm pants (obviously), over my flax colored jumpsuit by Sotela, with my olive green Clyde work pants, and over my chambray dress, just to name a few! Oh, and if I pair this top with my cut offs shorts, it might just be a passable shorts-centric combo.
If you’re joining us on the June 30×30, consider adding the Salt Alta Top before you start your shopping fast. Or, snatch it up as soon as your retail break is over. I have a feeling it is a piece we will all wear for a long time.
