Happy Monday readers! We thought we'd start the week off with a fun and sexy blouse, the Open Back Top by Spring & Clifton. This cotton and cashmere mix has an open back with a single button closure at the top, cap sleeves, and a very simple front. If you like to show off some skin, this is a fun and different way to do it!

We love how flowy this next top is. The Loose Fit Bra Top by Rachel Pally has bra detail at the bust, pleating at the empire waist, an unfinished bottom hem, and banding and ruching at the straps. It's available in cream, midnight, and black.

It's been a little while since we showed you an eyelet top. The Deep V Blouse by Catherine Malandrino has eyelet detail throughout as well as yoke and pleating at the waist, textures throughout, pleating at the cuffs, puff sleeves, a lined bust, and a hidden side zipper. It's very feminine, flirty, and flattering, and we love how the sleeves aren't over the top, which could turn a beautiful blouse into an 80s nightmare.

The Shirt Snob thinks this next top is so cute. The Verve Rownia Top by Theory has a wide neck, five buttons at the bust, ruching at the shoulders, banding and ruching at the bottom hem and cuffs, rolled edges, and short sleeves. We think the wide neck is a nice feature, not enough shirts have it. This top is available in pewter and ginger.

The Shirt Snob isn't sure what it is about this next blouse that makes us think of Greek goddesses, but we can't help but be reminded of Grecian tops we found two summers ago. The Crinkle Silk Chiffon Flutter Tunic at Max Studio has a V-neck with contrasting color, flutter sleeves, a bottom hem that is longer at the sides, and pintucking down the front with contrasting color and sparkles. We think it'd be hard not to feel majestic in it!
This next blouse will be one you'll get a ton of use out of as you'll be able to continue wearing it for years to come. The Warwick Stripe Agnes Top by Theory is semi-sheer with five buttons down the front, a fold over collar, rounded bottom hem, short sleeves with two buttons at the cuffs, and smocked banding at the shoulders. Wear it to work or when you're hanging out with friends, as it'll work in most situations.

The picture isn't great on this one (it's hard to see details on black shirts), but we still think the Wicked Embroidered Smock Top by Twelfth St. by Cynthia Vincent is great. Made of 100% silk with a cotton lining, this blouse has embroidery at the scoop neck, sheer, flutter sleeves, ruching at the shoulders and pleating at the bust. If only it was available in more colors so we could get a better look at it!

Bluefly is having a sale on tops right now, with many up to 40% off. We found one that we just love, the Ivory Eyelet Tie Front Blouse by Rebecca Taylor. It has cropped sleeves, lace trim around the neck, a single tie at the front, a slightly flared hem, and floral eyelet detailing all about it. Originally sold for $260, it's now available for only $156. What a great deal!

The Jenna Top by C&C California is a great top that works well in a ton of different situations. It has a pointelle bodice, V-neck, a V at the back, ruching at the bust, and is semi sheer. We love the length of the sleeves, which we've started to notice on a bunch of blouses this season. This shirt is available in black, faded black, ginger, rose, and sweet pea.

This next blouse has a real girly appeal to it. The Puff Sleeve Top by Generra is semi sheer, has pintucking above the bust and at the back, puff sleeves, and is a cotton and silk mix. We love the print, which is available in opal multi and custard multi. It's fun and feminine and makes us feel young!
