Even though this next blouse, the Square Neck Top by adam+eve, isn't a peasant top, it still reminds me of one. That's probably why the Shirt Snob likes it! This top is sheer with a square neck, pleating at the neck and back, short sleeves, and cutout banding around the neck. It's available in lilac and white.

The Shirt Snob rarely likes tops with one strap. However, this next top, the One Shoulder Top by Free People, is so elegant that we can't help but like it. This top is semi-sheer with the one strap over the left shoulder, ruching at the front by the strap, and is tunic length. At the back, the strap attaches in a knot to another strap that goes horizontally across the back. Besides that, the back is rather open. It's quite elegant looking actually. Available in five colors: taupe, turquoise, black, berry, and white.

Although we all wish that the world stopped during summer so that we could all go to the beach, many of us are stuck working instead of relaxing. So here's a pretty top to wear to the office. The Serena Blouse from Sunner is 100% silk, semi-sheer, has three buttons at the bust, pin tucking at the bust, a box pleat at the back as well as pleating at the shoulders, and elbow length flutter sleeves. If you can't have fun in the sun, you can at least you can look nice!

The Shadow Stripe V-Neck by Splendid is a fun and easy top. It has a V-neck with ribbed banding, short sleeves, and banding at the bottom hem as well. And of course there are the shadow stripes throughout that change in width. We think it looks great paired with white bottoms like on this model.

We love the prints by Nieves Lavi as we discussed earlier in the week, and the Neck Tie Long Sleeve Top is no exception. This blouse has a tie and keyhole at the high neck, three inch slits at the sides, elastic banding at the cuffs, and long sleeves. It's available in two great prints, grenada and paz.

We're going to do the same thing as yesterday and show you two shirts by the same designer. We love the Rock Top by LOVE from Ya-Ya just like we did the last one. Why choose one to show you when we could just write about both? This one has a deep V-neck, ruching at the bust and shoulders, and cap sleeves. It's available in heather grey and india, and it looks great alone or with a simple cami underneath.

Here's another Rebecca Taylor pre-order. We find these annoying as we want our new tops to ship right away! But the Wrap Back Top is definitely one you don't want to miss. It is semi-sheer with a round neck, ruffled sleeves and hem, a floral design throughout, and a loosely wrapped back.
Although it's only available for pre-order, we really wanted to show you the Candyland Top by Rebecca Taylor because it's so darn cute. We love the vintage print! This blouse also has ruching at the scoop neck, a V at the neck, and 3/4 length sleeves.

We love how colorful this next top is, the Lolita Top in Yellow by Iodice. It has flutter sleeves, rainbow embroidery at the waist and down the back, and a square neckline. It's perfect for the warm weather coming up!

We love this next top, the L Racer Top by The Breed, because there are so many different ways to wear it. This tank has ruching at the racer back, and draped sashes that extend from the back that you can tie in the front, behind the neck, cross along the bust, and more. We love the versatility, it makes this top seem like four! It's available in black and storm.
