I have been seeing these choker style tops all over blog land and I thought they were so interesting I wanted to give one a try. It wasn't until last Thursday when I was shopping that I saw JCPenney was finally carrying them in their a.n.a. line. JCP had a great sale last weekend, plus I was loaded up with JCP gift cards, coupons, and rewards so I was able to purchase two new tops and some fun accessories. Would you believe this cute top was only $14.99 last weekend? I know, what a score, right?
Everywhere I went women complimented me on this top. It was very reassuring that I made the right decision in purchasing this top. I was torn between two colors and I had the hardest time deciding on this one and the pink version seen HERE. I finally decided on the white because I thought it would be more versatile and I also didn't think the shade of pink in the other top flattered me. But, I ALMOST came home with both of them!
I wore my top with a pair of Liz Claiborne boyfriend jeans and white flat Liz Claiborne sandals. I chose a red cross body bag (Charming Charlie's, gift from my daughter) and red earrings and bracelets to bring out the red in the top.
My earrings were a gift from a co-worker who made jewelry.
The sleeves are a 3/4 length bell sleeve. The top is see-thru, so I wore a camisole underneath, but a pretty bralette for the younger more daring generation would look nice too!
I really love this new style of top and I hope they stick around for awhile. I think it's a very flattering neckline for most women, and I like that the built in choker kinda acts like jewelry, so I didn't have to decide what necklace to wear with this top.
So what about you? Have you purchased any choker tops this season? I'd love to hear from you!
Have a Great Day! Amy

This is such a pretty top, Amy! I like the color you chose and the casual way you styled it. I haven't given this trend a try yet, but you are certainly inspiring me to try it soon!ReplyDelete
Thanks Jeannie! I tried the pants with dressier pants, but I just preferred the jeans! I can't wait to see you style one of these tops!Delete

Trendy & Tidy
Thanks Sarah! I've been looking for a choker top for awhile now. I'm happy I found such a nice one at a great price!Delete
I also love the choker trend Amy, you are right it suits many women. I like the delicate pattern on your blouse, gives a fresh vibe to the outfitReplyDelete
What a fabulous, fresh summer look, Amy! And what a steal for that beautiful blouse! Love it and those great sandals, too!ReplyDelete
Thanks Mary, I love it when I get deal like this!Delete
You always find the best pieces at JC Penney as always, like this entire outfit shows. That top is so pretty and I need to head over there and purchase it. Sounds like your Father's day was a dream. All that yummy food!ReplyDelete
Thanks Ada, it helps to limit my regular shopping to just a handful of stores. I become very familiar with them, their brands, and sales. I'm anxious to see what color/print you pick out!Delete
That top was a great find! I can't believe how inexpensive it was and it so cute on you!ReplyDelete
Thanks Laura! JCP called it their "Biggest Sale of The Season!" I bought several great items that weekend.Delete
The top looks really nice, love the print. The choker detail looks really neat too, but it would probably bother me so I probably won't be purchasing any of these tops.ReplyDelete
You are too funny Elli! The choker did not bother me at all, which is funny because I read the JCP reviews and a lot of women said the choker was too tight on their neck. It wasn't on me. I didn't even feel like I had anything on my neck. BUT, I did size up to a size L in this top and I would normally wear a Medium. I never tried the medium on, I just grabbed a large because I like these type of tops roomy. I wonder if I bought my usual size if the choker would have felt uncomfortable?Delete
this look is perfect for Independence Day. Thanks for linking up to Top of the World Style.ReplyDelete
That's a good idea! Maybe I'll wear this outfit on that day!Delete
I have already visited JCP to check out these tops after seeing how cute you look in yours. Love your Liz bf jeans, too. Great fit and wash. Sounds like you guys enjoyed a perfect Father's Day and you were perfectly dressed for the festivities.ReplyDelete
Thanks Leslie! Did you end up buying one? As for the jeans, the Liz Claiborne brand seems to fit my body like a glove, so I will probably be sticking with them now! Yes, we had a great Father's Day!Delete
