Let’s talk about spring because I just spent four days without power due to a snowstorm, and now that it’s finally back up, we’re about to get hit again. This season has been relentless, we haven’t fallen into a routine since the kids were home for the holidays and things are
starting to falling off the rails.
When people say they love the snow, this isn’t what they mean, right?
Anyway, I’m trying to focus on the spring. Maybe refreshing our wardrobes will help us hang onto a thread of optimism. I was looking in my closet the other day and realized I need a ton of new white tops. Anyone else?
What I currently have is starting to show some wear so I need to replace a good bit. I’m not looking to spend a small fortune, under, well under $100 is more my speed. More than that is not worth it. White shows every stain, yellows quickly and sometimes turn that dingy shade of gray after a season or two.
Even though they are a pain to maintain, I do love a good white top. They add a brightness to your look, and often breathe new life into items you already own. Here are a few of the pieces I ordered.
I haven’t been to Express in a million years, but when I came upon this Tie Front Blouse I knew I would get a ton of use out of it. Pair it with a high waisted skirt, or slim line ankle pants. The top will drape beautifully over any simple bottom. Avoid pairing it with trouser and jeans with bulky waistbands. I also ordered this Square Neck Blouse. You can tuck it into any bottom for modern look.
From Ann Taylor, this Poplin Ruffle Neck Blouse is an updated version of a classic button down. Wear it the same way. This Lantern Sleeve Blouse is lovely. It’s a gorgeous basic, that you can pair with anything and add some interest with a statement or long necklace.
Clients use to love a tie front tops for the spring. This one from Nordstrom works really well with a light weight ankle pant in any color. Skip the necklace and go with an oversized earring or bracelet. I ordered this option by Vince Camuto because of how it drapes. It also comes in pink and black.
Finally, when I use to work as a stylist, every one of my clients had at least one of these blouses by NYDJ. They just go with everything. You can pair it with jeans and wear it out, or do a half tuck, wear it on it’s own or layer a blazer or cardigan. Also available in plus and petite.
