The Classic ‘White Cotton Top’

There is something beautifully timeless, simple and elegant about the little white cotton top. I love pairing mine with blue denim in the summer and this season’s must have basket bag. (Any form will do!)



The top I am wearing in the cover photo is from Urban Outfitters and I think it’s a bit of steal at £36, especially given how beautifully soft and delicate the cotton is. Urban Outfitters is not usually a place I shop (a little too youthful for me!) but I get an enormous thrill from finding something from somewhere unexpected. I would say size up with this top, I am wearing a small. It is a little shorter in the body, but perfect to wear with all your high waisters (does anyone wear low cut anything anymore? I find it so uncomfy)

Here are my finds…

    Looks lovely. I bought a white ruffled cotton poplin top from M&S when I was in London in May. Just waiting for spring here in Oz so I can wear it. We’re up at Falls Creek in the snow for a week so it’s all about thermals and jumpers for us!
