One of the more popular items in the recent J.Crew spring rollout is the Peony Tee. 100% linen, with a pretty picture of the lovely spring bloom, this one has my name written all over it. :) With the 20% off, the price was high for a tee, but I've been brainwashed b/c it doesn't feel completely insane.
I love the feel of the linen, and the print and colors are a bit muted, nothing neon. A bit more coral than pink. The background color is an ecru, not a bright white. I tried on a size small and a size medium. I could do either. I like my tees slouchy, so I think I preferred the medium, though I run the risk of it stretching out at the bottom. It may have given a smidge more length too, in the medium, which I like. The tee isn't too short and boxy, like the recent tees, thank goodness. That would have totally ruined it for me.
It is thin, and it's almost, but not quite, see-through. I was wearing a nude t-shirt bra, and it was fine for me. Any other kind of bra, and you're going to have issues. This does not bother me, and I'll be happy to have a lightweight linen tee to throw on in the horrid Midwest humidity this summer. :)
I've been playing with some styling sets on Polyvore:
What do you think of this tee?
Have a great day!
