Top-of-mind: Empire t-shirt from Zara

Zara_Puff-sleeve-empire-cut-tshirtIt’s about time for my first “I’m feeling guilty for not blogging” post. Well, I’ll postpone it because it’s also about time for a top-of-mind post!

I tried on this adorable puff-sleeve empire cut t-shirt at Zara in Chania, Greece. There was something about the cut and the gathering on the empire waist that I just loved. However, it felt a little short so I passed it up. I’ve been regretting that decision since, especially since it was only 13 euros! What was Brittany thinking? Ugh.

Now to get those trip photos organized!

Top-of-mind: Stripe confetti ruffle shirt from J.Crew

Stripe confetti ruffle shirtWho wouldn’t want a tuxedo shirt boasting stripes AND ruffles? The stripe confetti ruffle shirt from J.Crew feels like a whimsical version of their classic dock-stripe perfect shirt. The perfect shirt has been my favorite go-to shirt for about the past five years and they are surprisingly durable!

I would wear the ruffle shirt with black suit pants to work and, of course,  pair it with navy linen shorts for the final weekend of summer.

Top-of-mind: Striped cowlneck t-shirt from Gap

Gap striped cowlneck tshirtI’m quite impressed with Gap’s return to the basics, or at least some of the basics. For awhile there, Gap was trying to be “all hip, all the time,” but I finally feel like I can rely on them for classic items again.

If bringing back jeans that fit was the first step, then clothing you can wear to work was the second!

I love this striped cowlneck. Yes, it’s a t-shirt but it would pair well with simple black suit pants and a pair of my new favorite heels.

Top-of-mind: Basic Summer Blouse from Zara

zara polka dot blouse navyAnd now for another work top of the week. While I’ve had my fill of sheer and semi-sheer blouses, this polka dot cotton one from Zara is so cute! I would definitely snag it for $30 if I had a Zara close to me. (However, the closest Zara to Portland is Vancouver, BC –  a 5+ hour drive.)

For work, I would wear this with white pants or a summery skirt, and on the weekends I’d pair it with my new favorite linen short shorts from the Gap (as usual).
