Soft, airy ringspun cotton with an addictive texture and a light, cool handfeel, embellished with darling flowers in silk habotai (which means "light as feathers"). Fitted. Crewneck. Short sleeves. Straight hem. Hits at hip. Import. Machine wash.
I tried this on in a size small in the caspian blue color. I think the fit is true-to-size, and it's a fairly comfortable fit. The shirt has some stretch to it, so it's a bit on the clingy size, but I think it still fits. I would have liked it to be a bit looser on the arms, and I would not size down in this one. If you're looking for a more relaxed fit, then you can definitely try sizing up.
The fabric is the standard ringspun fabric, so a light to medium weight cotton with a bit of stretch and texture. I wouldn't go so far as to say that it's a coarse feel, but I also wouldn't call it smooth, either. The fabric isn't super thin or super thick - it's probably somewhere in the middle, but closer to the thin side, I would say - and the caspian blue tee is not see through, which is always nice.
I think the pattern is...interesting. I am honestly not such a fan, but I think that's because I'm not really taken with darker colors like this. I would have liked to have tried this on in the ivory color, to see if that makes a difference. The flower pattern is very nice to the touch, and is done very well. The texture of the pattern and the pattern itself work fairly well with the tee, I think.
Because the pattern is fairly simple (in terms of color and design), and sticks with a dark palette, I think you could easily pair this with a number of different bottoms and layering pieces, in a variety of colors.
I left this tee behind because I am not crazy about the pattern. I have seen others in the blog circle totally pulling off this tee, but I am not super into the pattern for myself. I know that I could not justify paying so much for a tee I would pretty much never wear.
What do you think? Do you like this tee? Do you own it? Which color do you prefer? What would you pair it with? What colors would you wear with it?
