After having worked with the Centre for Nonviolent Communication for a number of years, I have a bit of a thing about giraffes. (A lot of people refer to Nonviolent Communication as 'Giraffe Language; the giraffe has the largest heart of any land animal.) When I spotted this tee shirt in Zara, I had to have it then, and I must say that it has managed to keep its original shape extremely well - rather better than I have, in fact.
I haven't decided yet whether to pack it for Paris or not; I'm such a wimp when it comes to temperatures anywhere below around 25 degrees Celsius, even in June, there's no guarantee I'll feel warm enough to wear it.
I was never that much of a fan of the humble T-shirt until I started working in Singapore schools, at which point I realised a plain or patterned tee can be a fantastically hard working garment that won't look like a sweaty rag before you're even half way through the day. Prior to 2012 then, I owned one T-shirt that I really liked and that was about it.
Maybe I'll try putting it over the top of a long-sleeved vest? Or maybe that won't work at all? Who knows?
Hi there. My name is Liz and at age 50 and after 20 years of shuffling to and fro between Singapore and the UK, I've learned a thing or two about what to wear and how to have fun wearing it.
