Now that I’m living in a zoom world, I’m all about tops, so when Patricia let me choose a second gifted item from her website this year, I pounced on the Nancy. It has all the features I look for:

  1. 3/4 sleeves to make me look more lifted (neckline vs waistline boobs),
  2. a scoopy cowl neck that breaks up the mound of fabric, and
  3. enough room for my large chest.

Patricia has also added a neat little asymmetrical detail–a drawstring up the left side.

I chose to tuck the Nancy top into my leather pencil skirt for a sleeker look.

For something more casual, I like it with white jeans.

I’m wearing a size medium in these photos. Due to recent weight gain, you may notice a little pulling across my chest, and the sleeve hems are snug but not uncomfortable around my arms. A size large would probably give me more ease, but I like the proportion of the medium.

The Nancy top is a year round wardrobe item, but I especially like it for the fall. If you’re looking for a single piece to spice up your wardrobe this season, consider a Nancy top.

(If you’re looking for something a little more playful and summery, I’m in love with the Sophia top and matching wrap maxi skirt. Or for something with a little more sleeve interest, check out this wrap top in white lace.)
