Since clearing out my closet a few months ago (I wrote a post about that experience here), I’ve been more conscious of the clothing I bring into my wardrobe. One of the most recent pieces I’ve added is this Silver Dollar Top by Yoke Handmade. This is a special shirt for me to own because I’ve been following the owner, Kellen, since she started working on the designs for Yoke Handmade. It was fun to see parts of her drafting process, and now to hold and touch and wear one of her pieces.
Each piece is beautifully sewn in her home studio with tiny French seams and neatly pressed hems. It’s made out of lovely 100% organic hemp. The way the light filters through the ivory fibers, illuminating the delicate weave, it’s quite captivating.
What I love about this top is it can be dressed up or down (which is so good if you’re trying to keep a small wardrobe!) I’ve been wearing a lot of athletic clothes lately (hello joining the gym!). It pairs both with my high waisted running shorts and leggings and my high waisted nice jeans.
This is one of the few pieces of clothing I have in my wardrobe that I got brand new and didn’t sew myself. it’s a treat to have in my closet.
