I tend to reach for dresses quite a bit when I want to look “cute” during the summer. I also have an abundance of dresses. (I have more than enough.) But every summer I find myself realizing that I just don’t have a lot of cute tops, beyond tees– particularly of the striped variety. It’s definitely a “hole” in my wardrobe.
Earlier this summer, I added this embroidered flutter sleeve top into my repertoire and I’ve gotten so many great uses out of it already. While I think it looks particularly good with white jeans (the pop!), sometimes dark denim is the easiest way to go. I wore this exact outfit to a backyard barbecue where I knew I’d be a) eating standing up, b) chasing some kids around the grass, c) sitting on the ground. Jeans are also my go-to when I’m too lazy to shave my legs 🤪
