She Just Needs a Top

“I just need a top,” says my daughter, who will be entering her teens in a few months. She reserves dresses for major holidays and special family gatherings. For all other occasions, that demand more than a cool sweatshirt and leggings, she prefers to pair a pretty blouse with black or indigo denim. So here we are. I make suggestions “hey, what do you think of Agatha Cub?” but she has the final word. Sometimes I miss the days of dressing her but love watching the development of her own style. With the holiday season just around the corner, we’re on the lookout for dresses (a little later) and blouses. She’s looks for the right fit and style. For her body type and taste, tops from J.Crew are always good. From the printed tees to dressy shirts, she usually finds something that she must have. Here are her picks for the season.

Girls' Ruched Striped Top J.Crew
I love the blouse she picked. Clean stripes, cool cut and perfect with jeans and flats. Just add a simpleĀ cardigan for extra warmth and a pop of color. Ruched Button-Up in Shirting Stripe

Girls' Tie Sleeve Top J.Crew
Do you see a trend here? She likes stripes. I like how this blouse is a slightly darker shade, a good transition piece from summer to fall. Tie-Sleeve Top in Stripe

Girls Ruffled Top, J.Crew
She always has one or two crisp white blouses in her closet because “they go with everything.” Ruffled Long-Sleeved Top

Girls Ruffle Embroidery top
My turn. If I could add one more, it would be this piece. She said no. Ruffle Top with Eyelet Embroidery (back view in image)
