Without Optical Brighteners

It's the 4th of July and I am still in a fall frame of mind.  Today's outfit reminds me of the forest - the dark browns and greens - wood nymph colours.

Pink Calico - Woodsy Top

The woodsy top is another find from the mercadillo.  It's sleeveless and v-neck - perfect for those hot balmy days in Spain.  Not so good for north of the 49th.  I layered it with a tank, a sleeveless Ann Taylor shirt and a jacket overtop. I am trying another no-scarf look so filled up the neck area with necklaces again.

The top I think is German or Austrian or something. 

The tag says "nur flüssiges waschmittel ohne optische aufheller verwenden von links waschen und bügeln feucht in form ziehen"

which when plugged into the translator means: "only liquid detergent without optical brighteners use of wash and iron inside moist form in draw"

Probably because of the beads and sequins:

It wasn't hot enough to not wear the jacket, but had I taken it off, you would've been able to see the wonderful thick-waistedness of the tube waist skirt!:
