Light and airy this is top is perfect for summertime trips just about anywhere. Originally inspired by the spring break beach movies, the Betty Top easily transitions from beach cover-up to boardwalk dinning. Moving the waist shaping to the outside of the lace column keeps the lace in line and uniform.
