The Demoiselle Top is my latest release in the summer issue of Amirisu. It’s my first time working with the magazine, and I’m so honored to be a part of it. Amirisu is a Japanese based magazine with absolutely stunning designs and photography. It’s in English and Japanese, in print and online. The summer issue features natural yarn dying, which has got me in the mood to take a class!

Demoiselle is a fun spring and summer top with a bold lace motif. It’s oversized with batwing sleeves for total style and comfort. Amirisu paired it with linen shorts for a hot summer day – if you’ve been following me for any length of time, you know my first thought is to wear it on the beach!

I’m actually going to put together a series of fashion boards for this top for various looks in the next few weeks so stayed tuned for that!
