I can see this top becoming a 'go-to' in my wardrobe. I bought it to go with the Patterson skirt and it works perfectly. The tie bottom means I can create a bloused effect or wear looser over skinny jeans. The sizing is quite generous (I'm a 16-18 and purchased the XL). It has lots of movement room over my large upper arms which is always a concern for me. The light material will make it lovely for layering during cooler months, but will still be an easy wear piece when the warmer weather returns. I'll confess I bought the cream top as well and extra glad I did now.
