What do we think about this top?

It's from Monsoon, I'm a sucker for a white lacy boho top, but it's £60 which seems a lot for a little summer too. I'm on holiday next week, do I keep? (Photos for comparison, model vs me and my lily white legs)

Love it. It looks better on you than it does on the model. Not jealous at all. Nope ... envy

It's really pretty - I think it looks better on you than the model tbh. I guess only you know if £60 is too much . . . I'd realistically only pay that for something I thought I'd wear and wear, but everyone has different budgets!

Beautiful ,you look amazing!

Love it! Although £60 is a lot for a top it's kind of a timeless piece you'd keep for years.

I love it! If you can comfortably afford it, keep it.

Looks lovely
Wish I had your legs and your bedroom!!

I love it but £60 is very expensive, can you not find a cheaper version?

If not keep it, you can roll it out for summers to come.

You Guys blush. Thank you, I honestly wasn't looking for compliments (and apart from anonymity needed to hide face and hair from eye makeup half way down my face and greasy hair grin).

Thank you I think I'll keep it, I always struggle to find these kind of tops, plus it can work off the shoulder if I want to modern it up a bit.

Thank you x

It looks great on you. I don't think it's expensive either. It's the type of top that if you had 5 that were as nice you wouldn't need a whole wardrobe of them.

You really do look fabulous in it.

You have great legs. And the top is nice.

Looks fab on you. Awful on the model. And your legs are awesome envy

I love the top and it does look better on you ..I'm also jealous that it's warm enough for shorts where you are ha ha

It looks smashing on you! I am also very envious of your beautiful bedroom and would be happy to housesit while you're away!

Have a fab holiday.

Agree with everyone else. You look great in it and much better than the model does!

So my mum was just visiting and asked what I was returning to Monsoon (bought the top in 2 sizes, so returning one). Showed her. She was flicking through this week's Grazia (I'd not even opened it), and lo and behold, there's my top in a High St fashion special! Even more validation grin

Looks so much better in you than on the model! Keep it, you look fab.
