joie rancher top for less

joie rancher top for less

The Joie Rancher top has been on my wishlist for awhile. It's a great basic top that can be easily dressed up with an interesting necklace or scarf. Of course, for my current place in life, a silk top is no longer an everyday wearable item. While on a recent shopping trip, I saw an affordable version of the Joie top at Forever 21. I hesitate to say "knockoff" since it's obviously a simple design, but the shirts are very similar.

The Forever 21 tops are on the left above, and the Joie tops are on the right. I picked up four of them, one in each color shown above, and two in white (insurance against certain staining). They are flattering, washable (100% polyester), and nursing friendly. I love that these tops are as easy and comfortable as a tee but a bit more polished. They may not look or feel quite as luxurious as the higher quality version, but they are infinitely more practical.

Here's the patterned version, with Gap jeans (which were on sale in store for $13), thrifted necklace, and Target sandals.

My obsession with snakeskin is not going away. I love how the pattern and texture can act as a neutral, but also add interest to an outfit. It will also never go out of style. Here are some of my current favorite iterations:  

Although snakeskin has traditionally been reserved for accessories, I love that it's showing up now as a pattern on clothing as well. 1) Chaus Snakeskin Print dress at Nordstrom, $129; 2) Joie Drew C Snakeskin Tank at Shopbop, $83; 3) Equipment Liam Silk Python Print Sleeve Blouse at Intermix, $198; 4) Trove Contrast Yoke Tank at Nordstrom, $35; 5) Rhyme Snakeskin Woven Tee at Piperlime, $59

 

I especially love the Rachel Roy shoes above, they might be added to the wishlist. What about you - do you love snakeskin too?
