This might have made a perfect 4th of July outfit but I couldn’t save it that long – plus red, white, and blue are year-round classics around here. My mom surprised me with this J.crew popover (that’s the term J.Crew uses to describe it) last month. At first, I wasn’t sure how to wear it. It’s not a top that you really wear on its own (though you absolutely could if you wanted) but I wasn’t quite sure exactly what to pair it with either. After trying it on over several different tops, I quickly realized it’s not as I difficult as I thought. It magically goes with lots of different things. It’s great over a solid tee, but I love to mix it with other patterns (like this striped top you see here). It’s surprisingly easy to wear, and it sort of jazzes up any old outfit – throw it on over a white t-shirt and jean shorts and you’re set to go.
