DillardsI saw this Dillard's ad in a magazine recently and thought to myself,

"Self? I want to look like that this summer!"

Seriously. Flowy white top. Cute khaki shorts. Soooo many of you out there could ROCK THIS LOOK.

I'll assume you can find khaki cuffed shorts on your own, so let's check out some affordable flowy white tops, shall we?

We'll start with this one by Gianni Bini, which is somewhat reasonably priced ...

$88! Okay, it's a little on the expensive side for a blouse. But I don't care. I LOVE IT.

Moving on ...

 

J.CrewThis Tessa top (J.Crew, $79.50) gives you that vintage-y white linen style, while hiding your little mummy tummy.

 

AlyssaIn the catalog, J.Crew paired the Tessa top with this Alyssa top (J. Crew, $78), which was worn open as a vest. I love a top that can do double duty.

 

The Trend Boutique Jen's Pirate Booty tops like this one (The Trend Boutique, $129) are super-popular with celebs, and I've been coveting one for two years now. It's a top! It's a minidress! It's a swimsuit cover-up! YAY.

 

Neiman MarcusThis Splendid Jersey-Back Tunic (Neiman Marcus, $41 on sale) is perfect for those of you who prefer a simpler style -- and it's a great price!

 

Macy'sThis Charter Club tunic top (Macy's, $44.99 on sale) would look SO cute with khaki shorts. I'm looking for it the next time I'm there.

 

TargetGet the look for less with this Merona Smocked Neck Tunic (Target, $22.99). I'm not crazy about it in this picture, but it's getting good reviews, so it might be worth checking out next time you're there ...

What do you think of this look?
