While I'm still totally addicted to my pooch-hiding sweater, I do realize that once the temps warm up, I'm going to need a new alternative. The hunt is on! Or…was on, rather.
On a quick shopping trip right before I took the boys to Gulf Shores, I stumbled upon two gorgeous pieces that are pooch-hiding perfection.
They are effortless, cool (from both a temperature and style perspective), and best of all? No shaper cami required!
I'm wearing Free People's Convertible Crochet Halter in Ivory, $128. This top is amazing. There's not a hint of pooch, the drawstring straps make nursing a cinch, and the straps can be configured to make it a halter top, empire-waist top, etc.
Best of all? This top looks crazy-amazing with everything: boyfriend jeans, skinnies, over maxi dresses and flares.
My favorite? Over flares…
The top is gorgeous, but it's hard to not be distracted by that sunset. Sigh.

The other top I'm loving is Gap's Solid Mixed Media Tank in wassel, currently on sale for $30.

This top has a banded-waist bottom to hide the pooch, and the cowl is just low enough to be able to nurse. Like the Free People top, the shape is crazy-versatile. I've been wearing mine with skinnies, flares, boyfriend jeans and little skirts or shorts. This top also comes in a gorgeous pale, pale pink ("hushed violet") that would be perfect with some light-washed flares or white denim.
Have you guys found a perfect go-to piece for Spring / Summer yet?
