Back to Basics

So, I'd been on the lookout for a basic black and white striped top for quite some time when I stumbled on this one at a clothes swap a month ago. It was a little large, but I knew I could make it work.

I think the half-sleeves look so much better with the boat neck than the cuffed sleeves did. Don't you agree?
