I love summer tops and I NEED summer tops.Â What I look for in a shirt or blouse or cami or whatever style, are the following: color, comfort, fit, transferability, material, and care.Â I have a sleeveless cotton navy top with bias cut ruffles in the front that I have probably had for 5 years. And yes, I wear it early and often every summer season because it’s comfortable, fits well, can be worn casually during the day with white shorts and I can change into white cropped jeans for later and throw a scarf/wrap around later if I need, and it’s really easy to care for.Â It’s lasted a long time and I love it. And I promise, while it’s boring and classic, it’s useful and actually, I’ve received random compliments on it because of the ruffles.
But I can’t wear that everyday (nor do I want to) during the season, so I’m constantly ISO the perfect little guys that will do me right daily and nightly.Â Then I look for is it right for the occasion and does it fit my style and personality?Â Hey, it’s summer and it’s time to get topsy turvy and fun and funky (or not) with these pieces from Meringue Clothing (online) and Meringue BoutiqueÂ in Altanta (in store and on the phone, please call to order and use code SHOPMER for your deserved 25% off).
