Bows are a girl’s Best Friend

I am obsessed with anything that has a bow, but I would argue that nothing is as charming as a bow on a top. It is even better is when a top has a flattering cut and a bow. Cut to my brand new favorite Anthropolgie top, which is literally the ideal shirt to have a bow and probably the cutest top I currently have in my wardrobe for Spring.

I love this top because it has a super feminine look and can totally dress up a casual outfit. This pairs really well with denim of pretty much any color, but I wore it with white denim, to accentuate the bow. I am drawn to any piece of clothing that can dress up denim, because it makes planning a cute outfit for drinks or brunch so much easier. As much as I love dresses and skirts, I sometimes focus too much on what I can wear as a jacket or what handbag I can bring; so it makes my life far easier when I find a top that is super versatile and can go with many different pairs of denim, while also taking the outfit to a higher level.

The fluttery sleeves and waistline add to the appeal of the front of the top. I have found that with many tops with a back detail the front is super plain, which can be great but not always. When the front of the top is less detailed, I frequently feel pressured to wear my hair up to accentuate the back detail or wear a big chunky necklace in order to compensate for the plainness. When I’m out to brunch with my friends, everyone is going to be looking at the front of an outfit, not the back so I just want there to be a bit more detail when I buy a piece like this. I am thrilled with the front detail of this top. I can wear my hair down, with simple jewelry and still feel completely finished. The top runs true to size, I am wearing an XS (my normal size) and it fits perfectly.

There are so many places and so many ways to wear this top. I cannot wait to break it out for the different Spring and Summer events I have coming up. Thanks for stopping by! Make sure you check out the individual pieces of my look with the links below.

Denim – J.Crew // Top – Anthropologie // Necklace – Touchstone by Swarovski // Shoes – J.Crew

If your size is sold out online and you’re really interested in the top, considering calling a local store. Even if they don’t have it, they will try to find it somewhere for you and the store can be called to do a send sale directly to your home. That’s how I scored this one!

If you love the necklace and do not know anyone who sells Touchstone, please reach out and I can put you in touch with my friend’s consultant, from whom I bought this necklace.
