I consider myself to be a reasonably accomplished shopper…but the one piece that tends to challenge me regularly?? The basic “top!!”
Jeans, sweaters, dresses, and skirts are rarely an issue; I almost always find something new to love with every visit to my neighbourhood mall!! But when the hunt is about a straightforward top (like a tank or a blouse) it’s much more likely that I’ll return home empty-handed.
I’m not sure why I’m so fussy about tops…but I am!! There are so many details that need to be exactly right; from the fabric, to the neckline, to the type of sleeves. The fact that I fell head-over-heels for this little plaid number is really no big surprise, though!! The blouse isn’t new – you’ve seen it before in my “A little flare” post – but today it adds a perfect touch of colour and pattern to my tomboy combination of distressed jeans and slouchy cardi…
…all topped off (hehe!) with this adorable, flower-embellished hat!!
