summer tops

 {Wearing: Top Shop Blouse, H&M Shorts & Blazer, Zara Pumps, J.Crew Necklace and Matt & Mat Clutch}

I'm not prepared for hot weather at all. I have enough shorts and skirts to get me through the summer but I realized that I don't have enough tops. My need for tops is a legitimate need. Not my usual need which is actually a really impractical want. I have a closet full of blouses but very few of them are sleeveless and even fewer are pieces I would be willing to get all hot and sweaty in. (Don't act like your summer tops don't go through a heck of a lot).

My choices at this point are to avoid going outside, make friends with an air conditioner, or do some shopping... I think I know what I have to do.


  1. I love your collared shirt/stone necklace that you paired together! Perfection. xx. McKenna Lou

  2. Gorgeous top! Love the necklace too!



  3. This has to be one of my favourite outfits so far on you! that top is gorgeous with the necklace!


  4. This top is so cute, Melissa! Definitely get your shopping on ;)

  6. I find top are SO difficult to shop for! And THEN there's the whole issue of matching it up to the rest of the closet. I never seem to buy tops that actually work with anything else I own. Sigh. I feel your pain.

    That topshop option is so cute! I think of all your options, the shopping is probably the most fun of them. Besides, you can combine the three options by going to an air conditioned mall, with friends, for some cute tops shopping!

  7. I love the top and how you styled everything perfectly. You look great.


  8. So cute, that floral top is gorgeous! This happens to me all the time, one year I'm in need for bottoms, and the next I need tops, is like a never ending story, but we girls love to shop!

    Cee. ♥

  10. Oh make friends with an air conditioner, for sure! I am bffs with a fan but I'm not sure it'll take me through the heat of summer...
    Also shopping sounds like a good idea ;) Cute top!

  11. Very nice look and beautifull top

  12. I am actually jealous that you have weather hot enough for that super pretty outfit you're wearing. It's been so cold and rainy in Toronto I've been in winter/fall clothes :(
    and also I realized that I have dresses and way more bottoms than tops so I get you!
