Little Black Top

So I have to confess that I’m not totally in love with how this outfit looks in photos. But I’m still sharing it because I’m obsessed with the top. I originally bought it to wear with white jeans for a casual nighttime outfit. It’s such a great piece so, again, feel free to ignore the outfit and just focus on the top, ha.

It’s a little thicker than the usual camisoles that I reach for at night and the bows are just such a fun touch. The fabric is a tiny bit stretchy and lays so smoothly. The best part is that you can re-tie the shoulder bows so the top fits just right. Actually, the best part might be that it’s under $20 right now.

Seriously, those bows!!! It also comes in a white and a striped option. Then there’s another similar option with a different neckline.  Oh, and there’s a gingham version too. So many options!!!

I love that its entirely adjustable. And the bows – I have been in love with black tops and dresses with shoulder bows ever since watching the final season of the Marvelous Mrs. Maisel. They looks so classic and fun and elegant…my list goes on haha. I can’t wait to scoop this beauty up, xAllie


For what it’s worth, I think this outfit looks fantastic! You look like you’re doing some last minute errands before hoping on a private helicopter for a weekend getaway.

Also, you are SERIOUSLY selling those sandals to me. Love them!


This is basically my personal uniform. Love it! Would you say the top runs true to size? Factory sizing can be all over the place.


If you’re on the fence, I’d go up a size… but with the adjustable bows you can make it work


You’re being too hard on yourself, the outfit looks like a totally pulled together daytime look!


I wore this top last night to a baseball game! It’s such a great piece. Love how you have it styled here!


I love that you can re-tie the bows at the shoulder for a more custom fit – but I’d be afraid that my bow would be ugly or it would come undone during the day, lol. There are worse things to worry about, I suppose!


You should have seen how many times I tried to retie them for this post! Ha!


I don’t know I love the whole look! I want the top in white but I’m not sure since it’s final sale

I’ve never purchased anything from your site (although I come on here almost daily!) but I finally purchased something, this top!! I couldn’t resist the price point and bow.. and I also snagged a few other items from J Crew Factory, a site I have never shopped before. I can’t believe how amazing their stuff is! I am so excited to try everything I bought 🙂


I’ve been reading your blog for awhile but never commented, although it is definitely my favorite. I just ordered this adorable top since it is such a great price, and sent the link to my friends too. I love that you are “real” in your content and outfits. I can’t wait to wear this on my vacation to Maine!


The whole outfit is such a fun summertime lunch look, it looks great! And the gingham version is so tempting…!!


I actually clicked every link BUT the top haha! So thank you for throwing this up anyways 😉

Carly, I love your jeans! So classic but trendy at the same time. And they look extremely flattering!
