I think this weather was more the type where you could steam an egg rather than fry it. DC has been a few days of heat, rain, heat, rain and it's hard to pull together a work-appropriate ensemble and not sweat through it by time you reach the office. Karen Kane sent me this top and I positively love it; it's one of those tops that looks far better in person. The fabric is actually linen, but a lightweight slub fabric that is comfortable in the humidity and drapes so nicely. I've worn it before with the black pants for an easy early-morning outfit, and also like it with white jeans. It does say dry clean only, but I washed on gentle in a lingerie bag and let it air dry and it turned out nicely.
