J Crew Summer 2014: Embroidered Pom-Pom Tank, Embroidered Windowpane Top, Stripe Silk-Back Linen Tank

I have a few sleeveless top for review today. First up is the Embroidered Pom-Pom Tank, which is really cute though cut very boxy. I have on a 6 in Marine Salt and it was snug just below the underarms for me. Getting an 8 would solve that problem but would be even more voluminous in the body. A pass for me though I do love the strap detail on this. The dress looks to be identical to the tank, just with more length to make it a maxidress. I’m pretty sure it would fit exactly the same.

I grabbed the Embroidered Windowpane Top as it looked nice on the hanger. I loved it when I put it on though. I like that my shoulders have a little more coverage.  I have on a size 6 in Black and would stay with that option. Currently, the Pale Aloe is on sale + 40% off online.

I liked the Stripe Silk-Back Linen Tank immediately. I have on a Small in the Navy Stripe and that fit well. It looks odd in front since I have on a strapless bra but that is the size I would go with, wearing the correct bra. I love the gathered back and it looks cute with the Embroidered Cotton Gauze Shorts. This would be a great little top to wear for the Fourth of July.

Also, if you are interested in the Linen Chevron Maxidress in Black, it was on sale in my store for $99.99, plus 50% off. 
I ended up buying the size 6 and wore it with the Malta Mirror Metallic Sandals . I tried on the 37 but ended up with the 38 to accommodate my instep. If you are looking for a non-flip-flop option then these are great little sandals to just slip-on and go. 
Lastly, I received several gift cards for my birthday so I took a big bite out of the Final Sale today. Two items I was waiting on were the Linen Schoolboy Blazer in Dark Evergreen and the Puff-Sleeve Blazer in Black and Navy. They all came out to $71.99 each with the 40% off. Of course, 50% in-store would be better but my store either didn’t have them or weren’t on sale.

Happy Shopping!
