I recently picked up this Nina Simone top from Black-owned business Grant BLVD. They’re local to Philly and uber-focused on sustainability. This particular top, for example, is made from old shirting fabric, so each one is a little different. AND?

They come with a matching face mask.

Grant BLVD’s Nina Simone Top (Sustainable & Seriously Cute)

We snagged this Nina Simone off-the-shoulder top from Grand BLVD. black-owned business, local to Philly, nursing-friendly & sustainable (+ a face mask!).

I went with a size medium, simply because I like the colorful stripe of this particular top, but the sizing is so forgiving that I could easily have fit a small, too.

I like that these tops stay firmly off the shoulder, and they are so lightweight (and comfortable) even in the heat. The vibe is flirty and playful, and a nice twist on a menswear shirt.

Bra? I’m just wearing a strapless. And if you are a nursing mama, the neckline is nice and stretchy — these tops would be perfect for nursing.

  1. If you’re trying to promote this business, you should probably edit this post — you have the name wrong two of the three times you mentioned it.

  2. This is so cute! Thanks for the sizing note; if you’re in a medium that means I would probably need to size up to account for broad shoulders (“off the shoulder” styles are always snapping back up on me). I love a lot of their other reclaimed blouses, too.
