Kelsey Top by C&C California
Here is a feminine and quite pretty blouse. The Kelsey Top by C&C California has sheer lace inset at the bodice, five inch lace banding at the bottom hem, a scoop neck, six buttons at the bust, ruching at the bust and back, and short sleeves. The lace makes it quite girly, while the dark color gives it a nice edge so it doesn't come off as too sticky sweet.

Innocent Tops: Twisted Cowl Top by Vince and Cotton Voile Top by Rebecca Taylor
If you want a top that gives off an air of innocence, we have found two that we believe would be perfect. First up is the Twisted Cowl Top by Vince. This wrinkled baby doll top has a scoop neck with one inch banding, ruching at the empire waist, horizontal pintucking at the bottom hem, short sleeves, and is lined. You could wear this blouse with a ton of different bottoms, and it's definitely one you can keep in your closet for years to come.
There's also the Cotton Voile Top by Rebecca Taylor. This blouse has a V-neck, short sleeves, pleated details on the sleeves, under the neckline, and at the bottom hem, lace detail at the edges, and is 30 inches long. It's also a pale pink, which helps make it look rather angelic.
