The $42 Top You Probably Need.

Happy Friday, and happy Cinco de Mayo! This week flew by and now I have one of my girlfriends (Deirdre!) visiting for the weekend from Charleston. We had a fun dinner at Omar’s last night, another dinner in Brooklyn tonight, and tomorrow we are going to Eleven Madison Park‘s Derby Party. (It’s their last one!) I cannot wait. I have never been to Eleven Madison and I’m pretty sure that their Derby Party will be a pretty wonderful/delicious/amazing way to experience it.

So this top is one of the best things in my closet right now and it’s only $42! You probably need it. I don’t know about you but I really struggle with finding cute tops. Dresses are easy… tops are always a little harder! I got mine in my Trunk Club order a few weeks ago and I liked it so much that I went onto Nordstrom and ordered it in emerald green and red-orange. It’s a good one. It definitely runs a bit big (I’m wearing a size small and it’s baggy on me), so size down! Also: the light pink is a bit sheer so I layered it over this nude camisole. Anyway, it’s the best. Whatever you’re up to this weekend, I hope it’s fab! XOXO

PS – My Tory Burch Espadrilles just went on sale – highly recommend! They’ll be especially perfect for summer weddings and parties when you want some height but don’t feel like having your heels sink into the grass.

Also. If you are looking for the perfect Cinco de Mayo cocktail to make tonight, I have you covered. My passionfruit margarita is heaven, as is my fresh ginger marg. YUM.
