1 TOP 2 WAYS: FRENCH CONNECTION PLEATED TOP

While out shopping for a dress to wear to a late summer wedding, I picked up this French Connection top on the sale rack at Belk.


I must say, I truly miss having an actual French Connection store here in Atlanta. I shopped there religiously. Unfortunately, the selections offered in Blomies or Belk just doesn't suit me, and the good stuff is too few and far between.

But I digress. 

I was super excited, though to run across this lovely, ultra-feminine top. The color is very soft, the fabric is sheer and breezy (just like I like it!) and will make a great addition to my "grown up lady" shirt collection. 

Here's how I'm pairing it:

Just ignore the mess in the background!!

OK, so I couldn't help busting out my cell phone to grab a few selfies in the dressing room. Paired with graphic print shorts or skinny jeans, you really can't go wrong with this pleated piece. And the bateau neckline adds an additional bit of whimsy. Smart purchase, indeed.

What do you think of this French Connection top? How would you style it? Leave a comment for me below!

  1. Love this post. Especially how you dressed one top two ways. I always get stuck with how to switch it up.

  2. Thanks, Dana! I almost passed it up (I have occasional bouts of cheapism!). But I'm so happy I went back to grab it!
