You know what I’ve come to realize since I’ve started documenting my shopping adventures, dear readers??  Of all the various pieces that make their way into my wardrobe, finding tops that I adore is the biggest challenge for me!!

I’m sure my love of sweaters is pretty apparent by now – here I am, wearing my amazing Free People cardigan again! – and my collection of jeans would be huge if I wasn’t careful about editing very regularly. A great dress always manages to catch my eye, and even skirts have started to find a bit of a fan club in me!!

But for some reason, I’m waaay more selective when it comes to tops!!  So often, there’s some detail that keeps me from making a purchase; the neckline isn’t right…or the sleeves…or the fabric.  I rarely like shirt collars, I’m not particularly fond of cuffs…and if the piece needs to be ironed??  Forget it!!

So now I have a new focus when I’m making the rounds of my favourite stores; I’ll be particularly zealous in my search for tops!!  And – as always! – I’ll keep you posted about my finds!!

    What a great boho chic look! Love the earrings too! I'm just the opposite …all I want to buy are tops! LOL. They just fit me better than pants, I guess! And I agree about the ironing … forget it!

      That's why we would make such a great shopping "tag team," dearest Dawn…you'd be scouting for fabulous tops while I was searching for amazing bottoms!! A match made in retail heaven!! ;D

    I am the same about tops! I have a rule that if I don't LOVE it I leave it! Too many times I have settled for something that's just ho hum and then it hangs unworn in my closet. It can be tedious to finally find what I want!
