WIW: White BFs with EF top

It is hot and humid today,so the Kut Catherine boyfriends feel just right. I am showing them with a K/R EF linen tank from the last Clear the Rack sale. I hoped it would be super cool for these hot, sticky days and my other sleeveless tops are more to much more fitted. The color of bright pink is a wild card. YLF liked the color on me last summer in a similarly colored dress and a trench, but I am not completely at ease with it. It is definitely better on me in summer light than winter.
The first photos don't show how bright the color is so I added the last two,which are more the actual tone. Do you think the color is ok from what you can see ?
1: top tucked to make faux side assymetry.
2: top with normal semi- tuck
Which do you like best? The top is too voluminous on meto wear untucked.
Jeans: Kut Catherine boyfriends
Top: Eileen Fisher linen
Belt: Target
Shoes: Julianne Hough
I welcome your thoughts and suggestions.

    Those are all the same top Joy?! Wow is there ever a difference in the way the color shows up. It's hard for me to tell how the color reacts with your skintone in these pictures, but from a distance, I like the bright color on you. Is it cool or warm? I think either the side tuck or the semi tuck work just fine. Long live the semi tuck. With all the voluminous tops out there it's all most of us can do to get a little corner of the hem tucked into our pants, lol!

    ETA: forgot to mention the Kuts! They are fabulous on you, of course. :D

    From what I can see, it looks amazing on you.  Great fit, great colour.  And it looks so cool and comfy!  I so wish I could try some of this EF stuff on....

    Crutcher, these boyfriends are wonderful for summer. They are thick enough for no show-through, even if I wear red undies:)
    Claire, yes all the photos are of the same top. I had a hard time getting a photo. The color of pink is sort of midway between warm and cool. A coral (warmer) would look better on me but my shopping friend insisted this was good and the price reductions made it less than I'd pay for a Halogen polyester top.

    Elizabeth, we must have cross posted. I wish that you could try EF on too. This is a regular XS. I often like a Petite XS (PP) but in cotton tees they can be too short. This piece would probably fit best in a PP since it feels generously sized.

    Well I think the pink top looks fine Joy. Colour and fit look good. The white BF's are lovely and what fab shoes too!

    Love it all. The EF piece looks amazing on you.

    Great outfit any way you tuck it!

  • Aida replied 6 years ago

    The color looks great to me Joy! Really lovely rich shade, from what I can tell it seems like it would be very pretty for you. Plus I just adore how candy pinks look with whites. Both semi-tucks work for me, though if you do the first one (on the side) I would vote no belt so that you get a neater diagonal looking hem.

    Gorgeous all the way around Joy.

    Diane, Suz, Angie, Shevia, Aida, and Shannon, thank you for your encouraging comments. Tags are off as, no matter what the color, this soft breezy linen top was perfect for our 108F heat index today,as were the BFs.
    I ended up wearing the front semi tuck most.
    Aida, thank you for the belt comment. I will try without although this pair of BFs will drop down to ride on my hip bones without a belt. That may be a good thing. I also have a narrow white belt that may work better being less bulky.
