My Summer Go-to: The Peasant Top


 I mentioned in my Fringed Bag post last week, that the summer always sees my style err on the side of boho, it just lends itself so well to my practical lifestyle and laid back way. Therefore Summer to me is often about the Peasant Top.
A key piece in my capsule that's for sure, and they are the type of item that you can pull out summer upon summer. Two of mine are years old, and two were new this summer, but i can guarantee they will be worn again and again. They are the simple throw on with jeans and head out the door type outfit, which we all know is my absolute favourite.


These tops work so well through to early autumn, and my four will be on constant rotation.
So i thought we could see whats out there at the moment Peasant Top wise.

First up we have a new to me brand, but one i have instantly fallen for
Joie
Beautiful laid back pieces, lovely cuts and floaty fabrics..

I absolutely love the red and black, I actually used to have one just like this but spilled the dreaded foundation down it and it never washed out #sadtimes..
Shop Joie

A favourite brand of mine of which i have multiple pieces from them: Madewell
 Madewell Peasant Tops
Absolutely adore the idea of a black peasant /boho top, for now with light wash jeans, or come autumn wear with some coated /faux leather jeans for an edgier vibe.
Then we have the classic blue and white peasant top which is just summer personified to me. The gorgeous simple embroidery is reminiscent of a quaint Kefalonian town, making me wish I was sat beach side instead of looking out the window and only seeing rain..bah.. Least i could look the part, right?

River Island bringing some pretty options

The pink off the shoulder number is just the softest of pinks, I love the embroidered detailing, again could be worn with white, blue or black jeans, ooo or khaki.. How perfect with some khaki chinos.
The denim is sublime, if i were in the market to buy more, then i would have to have it, its also on sale too, making it a complete bargain. I love the idea of this now with white jeans, but come autumn layering it under a big cream cosy cardigan, with black jeans and boots.. another absolute winner.

Next up the epitome of boho cool Free People
 Free People Floral Blouses
I think I actually 'Ahhhhhed' at my screen when i saw these beauties. How special are they? Red just works so so well for now and for later, but the detailing and the print just absolutely won me over

Finishing with some from another favourite of mine Warehouse


Pretty embroidered tee, really easy to wear piece, or the really special sheer number. Both so so pretty.


Are you a fan of the Boho/Peasant blouse? 
Do you own any?

  2. I haven't tried them either but can see how they are easy wear but look good too. My favourite is the red and white. You look great in your collection of tops.

  4. I bought one a few weeks ago from Dorothy Perkins in black and white and haven't stopped wearing it. I bought another one today from M&S in the sale, a lovely navy with white embroidery. I love the ones you picked especially the Free People ones.
