You might be thinking, “Turtle tube top? Sounds like a Bad Decision to me!”
But you would be wrong.
I freaking love this tube top. Every year when I get out my summer wardrobe, I think about getting rid of it, but I just can’t do it.
I bought it in the summer of 2007 at Carson’s, but I was too apprehensive to wear it in public until after I moved out of my parents’ house and to Michigan.
At Red Hawk, Labor Day weekend 2007. This might be the first time I wore the TTT out in public. I wore it with these navy linen wide leg pants from Target that I adored until they fell apart.
St. Patrick’s Day 2008. Adding a bit of green, of course! Don’t mind me, I’m just helping myself to an Irish car bomb.
You can see more of the tube top here. It goes well with this cropped navy hoodie, which gives coverage up top but doesn’t cover the turtle pattern or compete with the kangaroo pocket.
At the Indy 500 in 2008 with Lisa. Trying to avoid tan lines!
Indy 2012. Too late to prevent tan lines. Here, the TTT is getting too worn, or I’m getting too old, or maybe both. Sigh.
