We cannot get enough of these delicate floral prints that are all about! The Ellie Girly Tunic by Madewell has such a print as well as a scoop neck, four buttons and pintucking at the front, ruching at the waist, picot edges at the bottom hem, ruffled cuffs, and short sleeves. It is 100% silk and semi-sheer.

We adore the cross-stitching throughout the Harmony Top by Joie. It's a feature we don't see on many blouses. There is also a tasseled tie at the split V-neck, smocked elastic banding at the neck, hem, and cuffs, and short puff sleeves. It is 100% silk and semi-sheer as well.

The bold and bright colors on the Bias Stripe Top by M Missoni make for a look that will stand apart from everyone else. There is an asymmetrical neckline, bias seam at the front and back, an asymmetrical hem, and thick shoulder strap that tapers at the back. It is also finely knit.
The Cross Button Top by L.A.M.B. is a fun take off the typical button down blouse with the buttons being asymmetrical. There is also an asymmetrical hem, woven banding at the placket, pintucks at the back, ruching at the V-neck, placket, and shoulders, and long puff sleeves.

We liked the Houston Top by Joie when we wrote about it last December, but now it is available in porcelain, a much more suitable color for spring. This blouse has a V-neck, smocked elastic banding and crocheted trim at the placket and edges, pintucking at the front, back and hem, ruched shoulders, eight buttons down the front, and short sleeves. It is sheer and made from a cotton and silk blend.

The Washed Silk Blouse by Rebecca Taylor is a pretty top in a nice spring color. There is ruching and twisted banding at the scoop neck, pintucks and four hidden snaps at the bust, draping at the sides, a deep keyhole at the back, gathered elastic banding at the cuffs, and 3/4 length dolman sleeves. It is 100% silk and extra long at 29 inches.
The Palace Top by Joie has a very small floral print throughout. It also features a split V-neck, seven buttons at the front, pintucks, ruching, and eyelet border at the bib, accordion pleated ruffles at the arm openings, and no sleeves. It is a wrinkled silk chiffon and semi-sheer.
