I’m starting a new round up of clothes that easily work overtime in my closet. I can wear these tops to work with colored skinny pants or dress pants like these with pointy toe pumps. And I can dress them down for “play” on the weekend meeting a friend for coffee or brunch, running errands, or having a backyard BBQ or family get together. I always worry about paying a pretty penny for clothes I won’t get much use out of, or will only be able to wear on the weekends.  Obviously, with jeans and shorts – there’s not really a choice. But, finding a cute top that easily goes from work week to weekend fun (or vice versa) always helps me feel like I’m spending my money on a great find!

Today I am sharing a few new spring tops I found recently from some of my favorite places to score a deal: Amazon, Shein, and Target! See how I styled them for work and “play” below!

Floral Tee

Pair a floral tee with white pants, and bring out some of the lighter tones with colorful slides or sandals!

Finding a light pair of distressed shorts was perfect to offset the blue background of this tee.

White Sleeveless Blouse

I found this sheer white blouse and just LOVE the fit! It is so flattering with a front tuck, or just flowing loosely. I put a cami underneath, and since white goes with everything, it has been a constant go-to for me.

On the weekend, this blouse looks really cute with shorts, too. Here, I put together a dressier look, but I also think it pairs nicely with denim shorts or jeans.

Navy Wrap Tank

This wrap tank is so easy to throw on and feel put together! I just LOVE the high-low style. I think it really pops with my patterned bow slides.

I always think navy looks cute with a light-wash denim, and these Silver Jeans worked really cute with this top, too. I used my favorite statement necklace to add interest, and felt the brown sandals complimented the gold tones in the necklace nicely.
