So many lovely options here -- thank you!
Roxanna, thank you! Good suggestion. So far, Baker fits have not worked for me but if I get to do in person try ons I might find out differently now.
kkards -- that is true -- I should check the Bay and see if they have any in stock.
Gryffin, that is a gorgeous top. I agree it is a hard hole to fill! I'd probably prefer the top in black also (or ideally, in navy!) -- there is something very elegant about dark lace, I feel.
CF, thank you. I was looking for something a little dressier or elevated than that top, though if in silk it might work.
Marilyn, absolutely!! I love the Jackie shell and have one in navy cotton. It's excellent. I would like some in merino also. I was looking for something with a bit of interest or pattern or "festive" feeling to it...
Thistle, I immediately thought of AT, too, but weirdly there was very little of interest there!
I have added a few Finds also...not exactly what I thought I was looking for, in some cases, but might work for the purpose...
I'm nervous about that BR top which I like in both the botannical and the leopard -- because I can't be sure the neckline will work. They don't show it on a model (that I could find). It's a V neck -- and if it is drapey, it might be too wide or loosey-goosey for my frame.
