Here's a cute one for spring. The Daisy Jacquard Silk Top by Marc by Marc Jacobs has a V-neck with a tie, 5 buttons at the front, 3/4 length sleeves, a button at each cuff, and smocked banding at the shoulders. We can't help but love the daisy print throughout. You may also like the Daisy Jacquard Silk Blouse which is a similar top with a key hole at the scoop neck.

Happy Monday readers! Here's a pretty one to start our week off right! The Bliss Bird Embroidery Top by Elissa Coleman is a semi-sheer top with a V-neck, ruching at the bust, dolman sleeves, hand stitched bird embroidery at the neck, and is 100% silk. There are a ton of great white tops out there right now, and this is definitely one of our favorites!

Here's a cute and inexpensive one that would be great to add to your spring wardrobe. The Deep V-Neck Flutter Sleeve Top by Zoa is a semi-sheer blouse with a deep V-neck, loose sleeves, and a tie and gathering at the bust. It's only $57, and it's available in six colors: white, pink rasberry, sunburst, perri, apple, and black.
Nanette Lepore is by far one of the Shirt Snob's favorite designers. With this next top, the Venetian Gate Top, she certainly doesn't disappoint. It has crocheting along the body and trim as well as in two panels going around the top, a deep V-neck, and there are two tab closures at the bust. The colors go great together as well. We just find this blouse stunning!

Here's a simple yet elegant blouse that almost anyone can afford. The Ori Cap Sleeve Drape Top by Velvet has voile yoke above the bust, ruching at the bust, unfinished and rolled edges, and cap sleeves. And at $64, you can afford to buy it in more than one color. It's available in turf, electric, and white, but turf is definitely our favorite.

The Shirt Snob really likes the Roll With It Eyelet Jersey Top by Joie because it is so casual and yet so crisp and fresh. It has eyelet yoke at the shoulders, lace trim at the placket, four button closure at the neck, cap sleeves, unfinished edges at the cuffs, and slits at the sides. We think it's perfect for the summer and could be dressed up really easily.
Another Joie blouse that has eyelet detaling is the Candy Kisses 3/4 Sleeve Top. It has a tie and keyhole at the neck, frayed edges at the collar and bottom hem, ruffled cuffs, 3/4 length sleeves. If you're looking for something a little more romantic, this is the top for you.

We couldn't decide which one of these next two blouses we liked more, so we decided to show you both! First up is the Ines Batwing Tunic by Sofira. It is hand embroidered cotton lace with a very deep V-neck, has an elastic empire waist, loose fit, and batwing sleeves.
Then there is the Ines Puffed Sleeve, which is almost identical but has long puffed sleeves instead of the batwing ones. We love how you can choose which style you like of this top, which would be a great cover up in either design.
Not all great tops have to be super expensive. We really like this next one, the Short Sleeve Bow Tie Top by Zoa, because it's very reasonably priced at $59 and so cute. This blouse has a scoop neck with a drawstring bow, is sheer with dots throughout, and has a loose, comfy fit. It's available in both black and white.

Here's a fun one for spring! The Batik Long Sleeve Square Neck Top by adam+eve has such a great bohemian print, it looks like a blast to wear. It is semi-sheer with banding at the square neck, 3/4 length bell sleeves, and pleating at the bust and back.

There are a bunch of items out there right now that are very nautically inspired right now. We aren't huge on this trend, but the Stripe Cast Off Top by Alex Gaines is one we would happily wear. It has a scoop collar with banding, puff sleeves with ruffles, and red and white stripes. You can wear it with a blue bottom to really get into the nautical mood, or just wear it with a nice pair of jeans to play down the nautical look.
