Scalloped Edges



When evaluating the contents of my closet the other day, I realized I don't have many lightweight sleeveless blouses (an essential for the hottest days of summer).  So when KiwiLook sent me this breezy tank, I was so excited by the versatility of it...not to mention the scalloped detailing & open back design.  I've worn it in more casual ensembles (with cutoffs & flat sandals/printed cropped trousers & wedges), but was happy to find that it works just as well paired with a pencil skirt & heels.  




What I'm wearing:
 Double Zero top c/o KiwiLook, New York & Company skirt (last seen here), Zara sandals & clutch (similar), Target necklace (similar), Vintage & Banana Republic bracelets, Mudd sunnies (on sale here), Lips: L'Oreal Colour Riche Volcanic

What a fun top! So I have dress that has an open back like this top & haven't worn it yet because of the bra situation. I think I just need to pick up some of those stick on bras. Is that what you are using?

Too funny, just this week I was thinking that I don't have any nice sleeveless blouses for summer! They are perfect for this hot weather. I LOVE that top on you! The scalloped edges are so pretty, and that open back is gorgeous!! Great outfit!

Can you please tell us the bra you chose to wear with this? I would LOVE to wear something backless but I have THE worst luck with undergarments that would accompany them.

Meredith said...

This is a beautiful combination! I love yellow and navy together. The back of that top is beautiful!

I second Alice's comment above--I'm always terribly concerned about boring, prudish, practical issues like what bra to use for a style like this. Can you enlighten me so I don't have to keep buying the same old button downs every time? Thanks!

Ma Knorr said...

Wow! That top is gorgeous. Great outfit. :)

Rachel said...

Hey there - love the top! What type of bra do you recommend for open back tops like this?

JustPatience said...

One of my favorite things is mixing prints with brights and I always get giddy when I see a blogger outfit with the mix. You look as pretty as always.
