Another casual weekend look and homage to IK

Hi all! Hope everyone had a great holiday weekend! I had a full day of family visits, gardening, playing and cleaning with the family. I wanted to be comfortable and look good. I would have preferred longer clams but I have poison ivy on the back of my legs and anything touching it is extremely annoying. I wanted to wear my locket necklace but when I put it on it created an unattractive boob trough. I remembered IK's post about wearing a sports bra as a regular bra. May people commented that they wouldn't do this because it creates a uniboob. I decided that this would be the perfect time to use this trick to keep the locket in the right place. Did I succeed?

Target striped dolman sleeve top, old cut offs, Me Too ballet flats, and my trusty sports bra :)

    OMG - so sports bra negates boob trough???? Fantastic! And you know what? You don't look like you have uni boob at all!!!

    This is a fab little casual number Rita and I really like the touches of gold throughout.

    Sorry 'bout the poison ivy - that stinks!

    How inventive and it looks like it worked perfectly.

    Sadly my sports bras are like steel belted radial tires and I don't think I want to wear those babies for more than running.

    Oh, my! I have never heard the term boob trough before, but I love it with the fire of a thousand suns... so perfect. I like the outfit and support whatever means you tried to make it happen. Sports bra FTW!

    Your boob solution works perfectly! You look comfy and fab. I'm SO sorry about the PI - yucko.

    Love it. I spend most summer weekends in a sports bra - never thought of the necklace issue though!

    Interesting solution to locket placement! I love that top on you.

    Perfect use for a sports bra! I'm sure the girls appreciated the extra support, too.

    Sorry about the poison ivy! You look great though! I love your MOTG looks--thank you for posting them, I am trying to study MOTG looks more carefully and you look like you have yours down! Very creative with the sports bra supporting the locket!

    I love the creative use of sports bra. And I LOVE a dolman sleeve more than is really reasonable so this is the best! Hope the poison ivy heals quick.

    GP: I know! I have trouble on the weekends too! That's why I'm trying to make more of an effort to document even non-work days.

    The sports bra was a funny solution. I'm glad it didn't turn out too bad. Hubby liked it too.

    Perfect outfit for the days activities. Thanks for reminding me I need to update my sports bra collection.

    You look great, even if you felt all itchy! What a great solution to the boob trough. LOL at that phrase!!!

    I am so glad you are posting your MOTG looks.
