This past weekend was so beautiful and sunny that I was able to get out of the house and finally get to some stores for a little shopping and try-ons. I met some cousins for a late lunch at Whiskey Cake so my time was a little limited. My first set of reviews for 2015 come from Tory Burch.

~ Olympia Tee, Comet Plano Stripe, Medium ~
I love the shape and style of my Zora Tee from last year so I was very happy to see this style back again for Resort. The Olympia Tee is 100% Linen and the front is also embroidered. The size Medium fit well through the body but the arms were pretty snug. Due to the embroidery on the sleeves, there was no give in that area. 
The colors are great for Spring and Summer and the contrasting embroidered trim breaks up the pattern in the front. I didn’t get a shot of the back but it is blue and white striped and different from the front. 

~ Lou Tee, Medium ~
The Lou Tee is one I immediately added to my wishlist. I knew that even though it’s similar in style (large stripes) to the Zora Tee, it would be one I’d wear frequently. This is also a Medium and the sleeves are a little looser and have some give. 

The back has a diamond print and the colors blend well with the front of the tee. The neckline and hem trim have sequins to jazz up the tee a little more. I don’t find the v-neck too low but a little cami will help for a little modesty if you like. Overall, I am very happy to have found another dressy “tee” to wear through Spring and Summer.

~ Brandy Pants, Navy, size 8 ~
I grabbed these to try on with all the tops I brought to the dressing room. They fit ok in the size 8 but you can see the pockets do not lay flat. I need to size to a 10 for a better fit through the hips. This is also supposed to be a cropped pant so I’d need to hem it several inches to achieve that look. I like the pants and the navy color is great for Spring but overall, they do not work for me. 

Though the Olympia and Lou Tee’s are priced a bit high at $195, I know that I will wear them a few times a month, easily bringing down the cost-per-wear. I have not had any issues with my Zora Tee regarding quality or fading. The tee has held up well with the number of wears and it will be a work-horse again this year.

I am in the office today so I really hope I can stop by the J Crew Factory to bring you some reviews of what’s in-store.

Have a Great Day!
