This Years Version of Last Years Top

Have you ever noticed that sometimes retailers will bring a popular item back from year to year with just a slight variation? This black linen top with white embroidery is one I got last year at the J. Crew Factory Store. I loved the embroidery and the the gathering at the yoke along with the cute keyhole closure in the back. I really am a sucker for details.

Fast forward to this years version of last years top. They brought it back with just a few changes. It’s available in white and navy (which I think just might be the new black – you heard it here first?)

I love the sweet colorful embroidery on the front of this top. With so many colors it lends itself to being paired with numerous bottoms from colored jeans, to denim to and an array of solid colored shorts and it’s a perfect weight for warm summer days.

Take a look at the beautiful embroidery and color palette on the navy option and just imagine how many different bottoms you could pair it with. I think it would be super cute with my coral pants from Loft I’m wearing with the black version from last year.

Both of these tops also come in the form of shift dress. I love how J.Crew thinks about the quality and wearability of items. The white dress is lined so there’s no worry about seeing through it but since that’s not a problem for the navy, it’s unlined.

If you’ve been looking for something with embroidery this add to your closet than one of these would be perfect.

Hope you’re having a great week. We’re half way to another Friday.

    I'm a sucker for just about anything embroidered and I'm loving that navy dress! I may have to be a sucker for it, too!

    Love that navy option- very different! I purchased an embroidered top at a resale shop years ago and wish I had held onto it- everything old is new again!

      That's the truth and as soon as I get rid of something I want it back…why is that? Missed your blog today. Hope you are having a great day and enjoying your week.

    Ooooh I love the embroidery detail! And you are so right it would definitely become a wardrobe workhorse. I placed an order with J Crew Factory yesterday and I saw this top but didn't appreciate the detail until I saw it here. Dang it! I just may have to place another order. Have a wonderful Wednesday!

      Happy Hump Day!
