Embroidered Flutter Sleeve

I tend to reach for dresses quite a bit when I want to look “cute” during the summer. I also have an abundance of dresses. (I have more than enough.) But every summer I find myself realizing that I just don’t have a lot of cute tops, beyond tees– particularly of the striped variety. It’s definitely a “hole” in my wardrobe.

Earlier this summer, I added this embroidered flutter sleeve top into my repertoire and I’ve gotten so many great uses out of it already. While I think it looks particularly good with white jeans (the pop!), sometimes dark denim is the easiest way to go. I wore this exact outfit to a backyard barbecue where I knew I’d be a) eating standing up, b) chasing some kids around the grass, c) sitting on the ground. Jeans are also my go-to when I’m too lazy to shave my legs 🤪

The top is nearly sold out, unfortunately. However, I found a VERY cute similar option and it’s also available in plus sizes as well.

Thank you, thank you, thank you for being inclusive with the sizes! I wear a larger size and it is exciting to be able to shop the cute stuff you show.


I love the ruffle neck tops from JCrew – I think they have them in 2 Liberty prints this year. So comfortable and easy to wear. I think I have 5 of them – got their tartan ones over the winter and then I have white, navy and a striped blue one – continuous rotation in my wardrobe! That is a very cute top your showing too 🙂

I just ordered this top earlier in the week! Seeing these pictures are making me even more excited for it to come in, especially those detail shots.


The thought of your unshaved pale legs hidden under spandex tight jeans literally made me gag. At least you appear to be wearing bras again. I just don’t understand what this is – you’re wearing jeans, sandals and blue top. Ok. Clothes. Why is this blog content that anyone cares about?


Considering that you have been commenting on my blog multiple times a day for about six years…. I ask myself the same thing: Why do you care to keep coming back?


I love this outfit! So cute, fresh and summery! Keep doing what you do!

Love this deep navy blue and I’m a sucker for embroidery! Thanks for being size inclusive 💘


I can totally realte to the “never having any cute tops” vs dresses!!! This entire summer I feel like I have not worn shorts as much because my tops are just blahhhh compared to the rest of my wardrobe. Thats a cute one you have on! Your totally right, it would be adorable with white! Must find cute tops ASAP!
