Tops I Need Before Summer Ends

Summer went by too quickly, and fall is just around the corner! Here in the DMV area, we've already been experiencing breezy nights, which I'm not mad about, but I can't deny that I'm still wishing that we get to have more summery nights.

These past few months, I've been growing my wardrobe, and I noticed that I have a lot of dresses, rompers, bottoms, and outerwear, but not enough cute tops! So for today's post, I decided to create a wish list of the tops that I NEED before we finally wave goodbye to summer, but also, I wanted to show you two new pieces that I got recently!


One of the two tops that I recently got from Shein is this super cute Sash Tie Embroidered Gingham Top. This has got to be my trendiest piece of clothing because it incorporates 5 trends all at once! Gingham? Check! Embroidery? Check! Ruffles? Check! Bows? Check! Floral? Check! It's crazy! But you know what's even crazier? This top is under $15! It's very lightweight, very flattering on any body type, and this one comes in a few sizes. Just for reference, I got the size small. This trendy top is versatile because I can easily mix and match it with a few pieces in my closet depending on the occasion I'm wearing it for. For this look, I went for a really easy and casual look, so I just paired it with my black lace shorts, and I wore my lacy flats for coordination.

White Front Knot Embroidered Shirt


The second top that I got is this pretty White Embroidered Shirt with a Front Tie. I love shirts like this because it's easy to style. I am in love the embroidered sleeves, and the front knot made this shirt not-so-basic. I can easily pair this with any bottom, but for this look, I kind of copied the first outfit, but I just switched up the color of the shorts. I went for an all white number, and because they are of different fabrics and texture, the outfit turned out nice. Peep me practicing my "butt pout". 😂

Which top did you like better?

I linked up a few tops that are in my wish list, so feel free to browse! I made sure I only included tops that are within my budget, aka, under $20, and I hope you find ideas and inspiration below.
