Embroidered tops are always some of my favorite pieces to wear throughout the summer because of two reasons: color and character. First, let's talk color! It's no secret that I love colorful fashion, and I really love the bright pops of colorful thread contrasted against each other, especially around the neck on this top. The rainbow of shades makes for such a vibrant, bold design. Second, character! Each embroidered top always seems to carry so much character with it. The handmade, hand-stitched look of the embroidery adds a more personal and unique touch to any outfit. Embroidered tops are the definition of casual chic, and I don't think I can ever have enough in my closet. Shop a few more of my favorite embroidered tops: here, here, and here!

Embroidered tops are a must have for summer, because they always pair perfectly with shorts or white jeans. They are one of my favorite pieces to throw on after a long day in the sun and always make for a bright and happy outfit. While at the beach, I paired this top with one of my favorite pairs of jean shorts, tan sandals, and my new favorite straw bag (under $100). This circle bag was one of my favorite purchases for this beach trip, and I have already gotten so much use out of it. It is easily one of my favorite (and most worn) finds under $100.
