After yesterday's casual theme, let's get back to something a little dressier. The Short Sleeve Pin Tuck Blouse by Catherine Malandrino definitely fits that bill. This V-neck is a wool and silk blend with embroidered eyelet detail on the waist, cuffs, and bottom hem, pin tucking throughout, darting at the bust, and a side hidden zipper. This is a great one to wear with a skirt or skinny pants. Also comes in antique white.

The Shirt Snob has had a hard time finding a simple shirt that she really likes lately. So we're going to share one we just found with you. The Very Light Fashionable Jersey Long Sleeve Top by Splendid is semi-sheer, has some ruching at the top, a scoop neck, and a slight bell at the long sleeves. You won't stand out in a crowd wearing this shirt, but it's comfortable and easy while being a little more exciting than your regular tee. Just throw it on with a pair of jeans and you're good to go. Comes in navy and charcoal.

Here is a beauty from Nanette Lepore, the Heirloom Floral Charmeuse Top. This 100% silk blouse has ruffle trim at the rounded neckline and sleeves, shirred raw cut sash at the empire waist, is lined at the bust, and has an invisible back zipper. It's very flattering, and we love the print as well.

Yet another print we love! The Tulip Jacquard Silk Top by Marc by Marc Jacobs is so stunning, we just can't get enough of it! It is pleated at the neck with a five button closure and tie, ruching at the shoulders, a tie at the waist, and cap sleeves. The print is monochromatic tulip and flower detailing. It is so delicate, and we love how it shines. Besides bluebeard, it also comes in new prussian blue and tinted pearl.

We must admit that the Shirt Snob hasn't always loved paisley. It's taken us years to appreciate it, and now only some paisley items we approve of. Here is one, the Retro Paisley Top by Guess. This blouse has a deep V-neck, lace alone the cap sleeves and neck, an empire waist, and button loop closures down one side. We love the rich colors, it's just so pretty! Great price too at only $69!
Here is another pretty one if you want to be a little dressy. The Long Sleeve Empire Blouse by Development is 100% silk, semi-sheer, with an empire waistline. There is ruffle detailing on the sleeves, front and neckline and lurex stitching detail. A tie with balls on the end is at the sharp V-neck, and there is also a hidden side zipper. Comes in beige and grey.

Happy Tuesday everyone! We hope you all had a great long weekend with better weather than we had up in the northeast! We are going to start this week off with a beauty from one of our favorite designers that we should show more of, Nanette Lepore. The Debutante Silk Top has a deep V-neck, pleating in the back, a seam under the bustline with a bit of ruching, and ten buttons going down the front. We think the best part though is the removeable tie at the neck. It's a great way to make one shirt look like two! Comes in three colors, ivory, black, and chocolate.

Why don't we finish the week off with the same designer we started with, Catherine Malandrino? This top, the Deep V Short Sleeve Blouse, we can't stop looking at, maybe because of the gorgeous ginger color. Made of 100% cotton, it has pleating at the bust and waist, contrast piping at the edges, embroidered banding at the V-neck waist, cuffs, and bottom hem, short sleeves, and is lined.

We know some schools are already back in session, but where we are they don't start until after Labor Day, so on we go with our Back to School options. Here are two options from Urban Outfitters, the Soundgirl Western Plaid Button Down and the Lux Peter Pan Collar Top. We know the plaid shirt may not be everyone's taste, but at this time of year the Shirt Snob just can't help herself. The air is getting cooler, and along with craving apples, falling leaves, and Halloween costumes, we crave plaid. This top has buttons going down the front, a bit of metallic thread woven into the plaid, a lace trimmed placket, three button cuffs, and pintucked shoulders. It runs a bit on the small side too, so keep that in mind.
The Lux Peter Pan Collar Top is semi-sheerwith tonal stripes, a rounded collar, double button placket, and slightly puffed sleeves. It comes in three colors: pale dirty rose, ivory, and olive. We like it because you can wear it with a pair of jeans or a nice skirt to dress it up a bit, and you'll always stand out with the collar.

Let's make today a Joie day! This next blouse would be great for work under a nice suit. The Angel Drawstring Blouse has a ruffled collar, buttons going down the front, ruffles on the front, a drawstring around the waist, and 3/4 length sleeves. It comes in three colors: chalk, pecan, and caviar.
