Sleeves, Please: The Best Short-Sleeve Tops and Dresses


Short sleeved summer dresses and tops: you asked, we answered. Cam and I each put together a kick-ass short sleeved top summer outfit and rounded up a big ole list of our favorite short sleeved summer dresses and tops out there this summer….cam's summer top pick

top: OBEY Button-down Shirt – nursing-friendly(!), easy, simple, awesome short-sleeve top for Summer. I love it. Now, it wasn’t almost sold-out 5 sec. ago, but now that I’ve put it in a post, of course,…there’s only a couple of sizes left. le sigh. I  did find this BP. Short-sleeve Shirt and this Halogen Cuffed Cap Sleeve Button-down.

shades: BP. Round Sunglasses – I like to buy cheap, cool sunglasses…because I’m cheap. ha ha. I really just don’t need high end ones right now, with little kids…and losing them constantly and then dropping them every day. A solid few pairs of cheap sunglasses do it for me. Plus- then I can have a few different styles to play with. Nordstrom has BP., which is a very trendy line…and affordable.

shoes: Converse Jack Purcell Lo Top Sneakers – ugh…not again. Really? Sold-out. Can’t find anywhere now. Nooooo. I think they were actually men’s shoes, but whatever. I would have totally still worn them. Why does this keep happening to me? Okay, WELL THEN. Really, I’d wear any pair of canvas shoes with a top like this, because canvas shoes are one of my go-tos in the Summertime and they would help to dress down the collared shirt a bit. So…I just found Converse’s Dainty Ox Sneakers. Cute!…and they come in a bunch of fun Summer colors.

shorts: STS Blue Boyfriend Shorts – these shorts look so good. #word Longer, comfy…and cool. The sizing is a little different, so pay attention to that.

bag: Rebecca Minkoff ‘Medium Julian’ Backpack – because it’s beautiful and if you’ve been wanting to spend a little mas on THE bag…buy this bag. This is the kind of thing that just won’t ever go out of style…in MY opinion. 😉

Outfit Details

top: Rebecca Taylor’s short sleeve voile lace top , usually a top like this is out of my price range but after months of oogling (oggling? are either of those a word?) it online it finally went on sale (50% off). But better hurry, they are already selling out quickly.

shorts: Aqua Paper Bag Shorts, $58.00 at Bloomingdales, these shorts are right up my alley! High waisted, pleated and self-tie sash and most important…suuuuuper comfortable.

sandals: Honey Leather Gladiator Sandals from Urban Outfitters, currently 30% off of $49.99. These are just one of many sandals currently 30% off right now at Urban, if you’re in the market for an affordable pair of sandals).

beach bag: Mango Embroidered Beach Bag, and welp, dannnng it, it sold out- I’m having the same problem as Cam! BUT I found a Lucky brand bucket bag with a similar black and white embroidered pattern at Macys for $88.00.

sunglasses: Le Spec’s ‘Edition Five’ 51mm Sunglasses at Nordstroms, pictured here in the white marbled/gold option even though I  first became obsessed with these sunglasses when I saw them in the matte blush/gold color option and they also come in matte grey/gold, $125.00.
