For our next kimono blouse, we've found the Solid V Kimono Top by T-Bags. This simple jersey shirt has short sleeves, a deep V-neck, unfinished bottom hem, and ruching at the empire waist. We really like the color and think it would look nice with a variety of bottoms. Besides coco, it also comes in a print version as well as in a mini dress.

We hope everyone had a good long weekend. We definitely did, but we're happy to be back finding the best shirts out there for you! We're going to make this week Kimono Week, showing you a bunch of great kimono tops we've recently discovered. We'll start off the week with the Kimono Blouse from Alice and Trixie. This silk blouse has a scoop neck, ruching at the empire waist, a tie in the back, and is slightly transparent but fully lined. The Shirt Snob got a peasant feeling when she first saw it, like it'd be great for a frolick in the fields. It's definitely romantic and beautiful and would be a fun one to wear. Also available in a black version.

We love kimono blouses and haven't shown our lovely readers one in a long time, so let's rectify that! The Japan Inn by Anna Paul is a beauty! It is made of 100% silk, has 3/4 length sleeves with lace trim, a deep V-neck with lace trim, and a tie just below the bust. The paisley print is just amazing, we love the colors so much.

We really love this next top because you can wear it with so much. The Serena Top by Susana Monaco is the sexiest turtleneck in existance we think! It has a slight ruffle under the bust and on the sleeve, verticle ruching at the bust, horizontal ruching below the bust, and is very fitted throughout the body. It is available in green, black, rose, and caramel machiatto.

We don't know much about the designer Cacharel, so after writing the post below, we looked around a bit to see what else was out there. It didn't take long to find another top we love from them. This time it's the Top with Bow. Made of a silk and cotton blend, this top has six shell buttons going down the bust, a scoop neck, a bow at the empire waist, and 3/4 length sleeves. Plaid is always great for the fall, so we can't help but like this blouse!

We love the print of this next top, the Sleeveless Patterned Button Corset by Free People. It has a button placket up the front, ribbon inside the collar, lace and patches with eyelet detailing on the shoulders, and little bows at the waist. Besides brown daisy, it also comes in pink rose and mushroom flower.

If you are looking for something romantic, you might like the Cotton Embroidery Top by Lauren Moffatt. Made of 100% cotton, it is semi-sheer with embroidery detail at the bust, shoulders, and body, pintucking and lace trim throughout, banding at the waist, a scoop neck, 3/4 length sleeves, and six snap closures at the side. You couldn't help but feel pretty wearing this!

Here's another simple one that we just love. The Caftan Top by Rachel Pally has a deep V-neck, ruching at the shoulders, ruching at the empire waist, and a tie at the waist as well. It has unfinished edges and 3/4 length flutter sleeves which we just love. It can also be worn as a mini dress, and it comes in nine different colors.
Happy Monday readers! We're going to start the week off with a simple, yet adorable cotton blouse, the Pamela Top by C&C California. It has a keyhole with a button at the V-neck, ruching at the shoulders and elastic banding at the long sleeves. We really love the keyhole, it's small enough so it isn't trashy, but it makes the top look so feminine! The Pamela Top comes in seven colors, so buy a few as these could quickly become staples of your wardrobe!

Let's have a couple from Ya-Ya day as we found a couple of really cute ones. First is the Martini Shirt. It has a deep V-neck, a keyhole at the back, and banding and ruching at the cuffs of the long sleeves. It's simple yet very elegant, and we love how you could wear it with a variety of different bottoms.
The second top is the Ribbon Cami Tank. Made mostly of silk, it has ruffle trim and chiffon detailing at the bust and the empire waist. There is also pleating at the front, ruching at the bust, spaghetti straps, and five buttons on the side. Comes in three colors, silver, black, and rose.
