    Promising review: "I love this shirt! The color is slightly more muted than the color in the photo, but it's more like a soft rose color than a bright pastel, and it's really pretty. The material is comfortable, especially the sleeves — not scratchy at all." —Rebecca P.

    2. A pleated top so cute you'll actually be excited for video calls so your coworkers can see how ~adorable~ and very chic the bird print is.

I pair it with jeans for casual days or a skirt with a cardigan for a cute wholesome look. I wish it still had more colors or patterns available because I'd buy them in a heartbeat (or next sale)." —Katrina Jeannette
