White, Lace Tunic & Going to Jail

Free People white, lace TUNIC. Also available as SLEEVELESS tunic via Nordstrom. Black, skinny JEANS. Similar JEANS for under $60. Similar white BOOTIES on sale. Another pair HERE and HERE. Halston silver metallic HEELS under $90! Similar sunglasses HERE by Prada. 

This top is undeniably a Free People. I actually got this exact top I'm wearing first semester of my senior year of college... nearly 3 years ago now, and I haven't slowed down on wearing it for even a second! 

This top has been with me around the world even. It's been worn on countless trips and even was exact top I moved to London in August of 2015. I can confidently say this it's my favorite item in my closet. At the end of this post I'll even tell a very interesting and possibly exciting story about a memory in this top, but first, let's talk outfit details! 

It's long-sleeved, but it even comes in a sleeveless version also linked! I honestly love the long-sleeve because it's still very breathable, yet it's a good piece to have year-round. I often wear it over a pair of denim shorts when it's too warm to wear pants. It also comes in many colors so why not get a few?? The more the merrier! 

Quick life update, last night I took my first graduate school test. George Harrison (my cat) and I are settling in great in our actual apartment. He is actually really terrified of heights and gets really annoyed every time he looks out the window, but he seems to be getting more used to it! I'm slowly but surely adding pieces of furniture to my apartment. It seems to be coming together nicely, and I'm so excited to see the end product!! 


So in November of my senior year of college... it was actually the Sunday after Thanksgiving, I wore this top out with a friend. He picked me up and didn't tell me where we were going, but I just went with it. We drove a tiny bit outside of town, and he pulled over and parked in front of 3 large grain silos (yes, I lived in Arkansas). He said we were going to climb them and when I asked if it would be ok, he assured me it would and that he had climbed them multiple times with people before. Going to a school in the middle-of-nowhere Arkansas, this was actually a common activity for students to do for fun. 

We climbed up. Maybe were up there for 5 minutes... and you guessed it... the police showed up. A cop was checking out his car and searching around the area. We decided it would probably be a good idea to go down. The cop said it would be a $400 fine for trespassing, but also said he would let us go fine because he climbed the same grain silo when he was our age, but since he called it in already he had to run our IDs. 

No big deal, right? No. When he called the dispatcher he looked up at me and said, "You know there's a warrant out for your arrest?" I said no... Well, apparently there had been an issue with a ticket I got over a YEAR before, and since then I had a warrant out for my arrest. I was literally a fugitive on the run! 

So here I am, in this gorgeous top being put in the back of a cop car! A K9 unit to be exact. 

I'm frantically texting my 3 roommates/best friends. To which none of them believe me and ask when I'll be home. After being taken in, handcuffed and booked, I think they finally got the picture. The friend I was with went immediately to the station to work on bailing me out. 

Let me just say... IT WAS THE BEST NIGHT OF MY LIFE!! I really had a blast in jail. A cop tried to set me up with his much-too-young-for-me son and showed me pictures of his grandkids. A bunch of cops gathered around to hear the story of me climbing the silo, I saw a man get brought in for public intox in his whitie-tighties and I got offered a job as the file girl for the station! 

I was placed in a cell for about an hour to which I counted all 534 cell blocks. Once I was released I was greeted by my 3 roommates and got a good-bye hug from one of the cops. 

I'm not saying you should go to jail... buuuutttt.... jkjkjk! I was bailed out and everything was cleared up. I'm no longer a wanted person! 

That's all the story I have in me for today! But I hope you all have a happy Wednesday! xx


  1. I love this top (and your story, haha!) but what do you normally wear under it? I see it looks like a black tank/bralette of some sort. Do you think any cute v-neck bralette would work?

    1. I usually just put either a black or white cami on under! I have a black bodysuit under it in these photos! A bralette would also be super cute!!

  2. Omg this is too funny!! Plus this top is super gorgeous!!
