Happy Wednesday, friends! We are officially halfway through the week, and about to head into one of my favorite holiday weekends… the fourth of July! This is the one holiday where, apart from Halloween, it feels as if everyone’s dressed up. But luckily for us, red white and blue can be worn year-round, giving us (I know I’m not alone in this) extra incentive to splurge on something cute in celebration!

Today, I’m introducing you to a top that isn’t only festive for the fourth, but one I wear on the reg. I purchased it for my trip to Iceland, and if you followed along on Instagram, you’d have seen that I wore it on multiple occasions. That’s because it’s the best basic to have in your closet… this j.crew striped boatneck t-shirt is comfortable, classic and oh-so easy and versatile to style!

Here, I tied it up with a sweet white linen skirt. I’ve worn it with white jeans and sandals, denim cutoffs, and can’t wait to incorporate it into my fall wardrobe with riding boots and blazers! If I’m being honest, I almost didn’t buy this top initially because I was worried it might be a little too boring or matronly looking. Friends, that couldn’t be farther from the truth. It’s truly become one of my most-worn wardrobe pieces! You’ll find it on sale for $25 here, and in other colors here!

Love from Texas,

    I love this look! It’s so cute for the fourth. The way you tied your tee to go with a skirt is such a good idea, I’ll definitely have to steal that tip! :)
