Anyone else struggling to find cute tops this season? Myself, I’ve had to work hard at it – and am still on the hunt. I know I am not alone. I’ve had many friends and readers ask me lately, where are all the fun tops, to pair up with denim, hanging out?
I had a chance to pop into Nordstrom, and Nordstrom Rack this week, with the mission of finding some fun tops for us Moms, to wear around everyday. The criteria? Comfortable and stylish, all wrapped up in to one, not to much to ask, right?
Let’s take a look!
Plaid is big right now, so we’ll start with that. For my Old Navy and Target plaid shirts, click into this post HERE.
I had been hearing and reading lately about celeb brand fave, ‘Rails’. My Nordstrom doesn’t ‘The Rails’ in store, but there was a return for me to try on:
‘Kendra’ shirt | Rails
Rails at Nordstrom| $128.00-$138.00 HERE
All Rails shirts and shirt dresses are on 25% off promo, now for Saks Friends and Family Event.
Live locally? Papillon Los Altos stocks Rails shirts as well!
If a traditional plaid shirt isn’t your cup of tea,
I thought this was a fun way to wear plaid, by Bobeau:
a party in the back:
Long enough to wear with skinnies or tucked into boyfriends or bootcut jeans. I like the rolled up arm.
At Nordstrom Rack, $26.97, true to size, but size up if you like a looser tunic fit.
This pretty top is also Bobeau and would look great with black skinnies or coated jeans:
Now $26.96, HERE
and this from Pleione,
now $36.97, HERE
Banana Republic has some great plaids, also on promo:
I tried this tunic style (right), on at Nordstrom – not for me. I can’t find a link for it, and forgot the brand. If you are interested, it was in the TBD department.
Maybe if I were shorter, and wore it as a dress?
Or with leggings, and a sweater vest? Belted?
This goes to show, somethings don’t translate in the dressing room!
Looking for a plaid tunic? This one by Caslon has good reviews HERE
That poncho sure was cute though!
Trouve grid pattern cape, $98.00, HERE
I love this find, from Target!
What got me to buy, was the longer length,
Speaking of wraps, I love this cardigan wrap from Nordstrom Rack
In black and camel, by Brochu Walker was $365.00 now $79.97 at Nordstrom Rack HERE
I love the sleaves! Perfect for layering with a blouse or shirt and for showing off your arm candy!
This next sweater was interesting:
Leith wrap sweater| $64.oo| in 3 great colors (dark green and merlot!) | Nordstrom HERE
Can be worn longer over bootie or above hip.
More like a sweater, I like the side slit on this heavyweight tee from James Perse:
At Nordstrom in black and at Saks, now on promo in grey HERE
$145.oo with 25% off
Next up, a tee with a twist and the perfect layering piece!
White knot tee by Stateside | reg $72.00 on promo now $54.00 | in white, black and grey – cute tee with a twist! Runs true to size. In a small here. | Nordstrom HERE
Trouve layer tee | 48.00 | pair this tee up under a poncho, sweater or jacket! | in white, grey and black, needs a cami underneath | Fitted, true to size | Nordstrom HERE
Splendid Waffle Open Cardigan
What I loved about this cardigan, was the side details ( right).
Trending this season, I love the sleeveless turtleneck silhouette. I’ve tired on many, and my favorite it this style from TopShop:
Tabard Turtleneck Sweater
I did size down from my regular size, I did find it to run a tad big.
Banana Republic has a similar style on promo this weekend:
Seen on the blog and on my Instagram feed, I love this wrap top from Amour Vert:
‘Agnes’ surplice tank | black, grey and stipe | $88.00 | Nordstrom HERE
I bought it in grey in a small. First, I wish I bought black. Second, I should have sized down. Great top for day or night. Can be tucked in or out.
TopShop V-neck Tee
I love the fit of this tee, ran true to size. A cheeper option to James Perse.
Short sleeve, $20.00 HERE | Sleeveless (not available online) | Nordstrom
Old Navy Round- Hem Tank
I love the longer length of this tank.
The perfect layer tank, in 5 colors | $12.97 HERE

I own this tank in black and light pink.
Here’s how I wore my Old Navy tank, today:
Have a fabulous weekend!
