Current Obsession: Eileen Fisher Linen Poncho Top

Current Obsession: Eileen Fisher Linen Poncho Top(Source: Eileen Fisher)I'm a big fan of clothes that you can live in. And I mean that literally, as I'm one of those individuals who admittedly on occasion falls asleep in my clothes. It's a big challenge to pass my test to be a piece that can go from the office, to the airport, to a beach cover-up, and also be a lounging-around-home staple. Well, I found a new one.

This sweater—a birthday gift from some ladies that know me all too well—is beyond my new obsession. Don't even get me started on how I used to think Eileen Fisher was only for the hip moms out there. Confess: it was a secret you were keeping, right? Which reminds me, have you seen the The Fisher Project? It's a hip new collection with a few pieces out now and more to launch this fall. (Think simple neutrals the brand is known for with an imaginative flare.)

I digress. Back to the point: This top is breathable, soft, and has a cut that is fashionable without being avant-garde. I know the price point even on sale ($129) doesn't make for a fleeting purchase, but we are talking cost per day/wear with this item. I've already gotten my worth, as it made it through the above cycle, and it's only been a month. I'm picking up the white one for this summer's Home–>Office–>JFK–>TBD destination–>Couch trajectory.
