White Out

So maybe this better qualifies as casual? It's all about the material (in this case washed denim), I guess. And an easy, breasy, beachy, white top.

I'm actually at a loss for cute white tops in my wardrobe. I think I have just the one, and I'd like to do better. So I was determined to unearth said cute options across the Internets, and I came upon this butterfly top from Eloquii on clearance. Once it arrived, I decided that all that material wasn't doing it for me, though. I thought I'd only end up wearing it with jeans, and what fun is that? So back into the box it went, and on top of my kitchen table it waited to be returned. And waited... I never managed to send it back before the return window passed. But what the heck, for less than $20, I could find some way to work this bad boy up. It's really nothing a little animal print belt can't fix...

Of course, now that I've actually worn it, I've started envisioning all sorts of ways to wear it. Bottom line, it'll be a summer staple.


  1. I don't  think I own any white tops, I need to do something about that. The leopard belet really jazzed this one up :)

  2. Oh I have totally done the same thing with online purchases - decide against it, never get around to returning it, only to try it on again and love it.  Those sleeves are fantastic!

  3. You have such a dressy idea of casual, but this is so pretty!  Casual for you, I suppose... :)

  4. ha! yep, exactomondo... i just can't work a tee and jeans the way i can a pencil skirt, ya  know?

  5. thank you!! it's amazing what just a belt can do for an outfit! white tops can be a great summer staple - good luck with your search!

  6. Great outfit...Love the skirt!!
