Tassel Top

A few weeks ago Melissa and I were wandering around Old Town / Lincoln Park looking for a place to shoot some photos when we popped into A New Leaf to take a peek. Since it was so windy outside, we decided to take a few photos inside instead! There’s a strip on Wells Street that has three flower shops in just a few blocks… A New Leaf near Real Good JuiceGreen about a block up, and another location of A New Leaf a few blocks up from there. While I love stopping into any of the three on my almost-daily smoothie runs to RGJ (it’s an addiction at this point), if I had to pick just one, Green would be my favorite! It’s like a forrest inside and they have a great selection of random vases, too. Plus, I’ve had the best luck with their flowers lasting the longest once I’ve gotten them home! I usually end up just grabbing my flowers at Whole Foods or Trader Joe’s when I’m grocery shopping, but when I’m looking for something special I love popping into one of these three shops. (If you follow me on Snapchat, those giant gorgeous peonies that I posted a few weeks ago were from Green!) Liz recently shared some of her favorite flower shops in Chicago and I need to venture to some of the others that are new to me!

Anyway, I picked up this tassel top before the weather warmed up (it’s unfortunately since cooled back down in Chicago) and had been dying to wear it out and about. I’ve worn it out twice so far and have gotten countless compliments… Who doesn’t love a few fun tassels? It’s such a steal at $27 that it’s sadly almost sold out. But I scoured the web to find a few similar styles at all different price points! Here are some of my favorites…

    Love this top. In fact, I love this entire outfit! It’s perfect for Spring and it’s both casual & dressy. I also love the store as the backdrop. It’s so pretty in there!

    I have been checking for new updates and I can’t believe that I missed this post yesterday!

    When you take photos inside, do you have to ask for permission or just do your thang? haha

      We always ask! Since they’re open for business, we never want to get in the employee’s way or annoy the customers and affect their experience. We’re super quick about it and try to find a spot to shoot off the beaten path!

    This top looks way better on you than on me! Did you wear a cami underneath? I found the top very sheer.

      I didn’t wear a cami underneath. I had a few people ask about this on Instagram and you can see from the photos that’s its on the sheer side (you can see where the blue from my jeans stops). I wore a nude strapless bra for these photos, and twice when I’ve worn this top out, and definitely didn’t feel overexposed at all. You could always wear a halter-style cami and tuck it into your jeans if you felt more comfortable that way!
