Perfect Little Summer 3/4 Sleeve Tee + Link Up

July 19, 2018

My mom used to live in tops like this in the summer.  Cotton knit, 3/4 sleeve, floral or stripes … And I totally get it.  They’re so versatile, comfortable, and flattering.

I miss my mom so much. And yeah, that lady was right about so many things!

Mom had great style. Of course I don’t think she would’ve been rocking the ruffle hem jeans and heels in her 80’s, but you never know with mom. She for sure would be rocking this top and this tote bag!

This pretty top is a new arrival at J.Jill!  While you’re there, be sure to check out the sale they’re having right now: take an extra 40% off all sale merchandise!

    Isn’t it nice when our moms are so fashionable? I definitely appreciate that my mom is still around although I might be able to twist her arm for the ruffle hem jeans. I mean heck, she’s wearing a ruffle hem skirt!!

    Every time I see you wear those jeans I love them even more. I want them, but I’m afraid they’ll just be too long and look ridiculous. Love them on you!!!! XO

    Great jeans, love the shoes too! A very cool look!

    It’s so nice to have that connection to your dear mum followed through in your outfits. It’s a pretty, feminine top. My mum wore mostly dresses, I think because she found they gave a sleeker line around the middle as it widened in her later years, avoiding a skirt and top meeting and bunching up and accentuating the area. Clever. X.

    Your jeans is perfect and your shoes are really eyecatchers too.

    Why is it that only when we are older we appreciate the wiadom of our parents… Love this look, and like your Mom I always have at least a few floral tops in my Summer wardrobe ?❤
