Mason by Michelle Mason Top / J Crew Coral Pants / Jennifer Zeuner Necklace / Michael Kors Watch / Jacquie Aiche Bracelet / Ray Ban Glasses / Charlotte Olympia Heels / Celine Bag

I can’t really explain how much I love this top. For some reason, trying to find simple, versatile and statement tops is a lot harder than I thought. Either that or I’m just far too picky!

When I was traveling I found myself only wanting to wear a pair of skinny leg jeans, black pumps and a nice top to wear out during the evening. Classic and simple, the whole no fuss policy when you’re running out of room in your suitcase. I found this white fishtail top by¬†Mason by Michelle Mason on Shopbop one night when I couldn’t sleep in London and it was easily the fastest online purchase I’ve ever done to date. Unfortunately I think they sold out within the day but I have seen Shopbop restock this top one before so if you’re after it be sure to keep checking back. It’s utterly perfect to wear with a pair of coral pants I got on sale but were two sizes too big. Miraculously a seamstress in New York altered them to make them fit like a glove which now has me buying those “only one left” sale pieces that are too big and just paying the extra twenty-ish dollars to get them taken in to fit perfectly. Why didn’t I think of that sooner? At least I figured it out just in time to have this outfit to wear around the back streets of sunny Venice in Italy!
