Do you have one of those tops you are constantly grabbing and putting on whether it’s for work, on the weekends, and no matter your mood? Or maybe it’s a top you have that you put on when it seems like there’s nothing else in your closet to wear and it always makes you feel good? That’s this shirt. I had been eyeing it for a while in the stripe version (*obsessed*) but couldn’t justify spending the money on it. I figured I’d wait and it would go on sale eventually and it never went on sale and Madewell rarely ever has random sales anymore. Fast forward to about a month or two ago and bit the bullet.

When I first got it in the mail, I was a little hesitant thinking it was too big and boxy (I’m wearing an XS) but gave it a try anyways. I’m at the point that I have to make the conscious decision *not* to reach for it every day when I get dressed. It’s so cute with shorts and since it’s lose, it’s perfect for those hot days when you want your shoulders protected. I also love wearing it with a great pair of denim and sandals for running errands first thing in the morning. I’m planning on styling it again on the blog over the next couple of weeks for a fun date night/cocktail with the girls look! Told ya I was obsessed!

Do you have a top you find yourself reaching for constantly?

    I have this top in white and chambray- agree so versatile. Though I went down to an XS too and it’s still so billowy!

    This top is so cute! I’ve been reaching for my boyfriend white tee from Old Navy lately. It was a cheap shirt that has turned out to be such a good fit for the summer!

    I LOVE it! I’ve been eyeing that top recently and noticed a red striped version that’s on sale but I really love the plain white one. I want to wear it with a pair of high waisted jeans in the fall – ahh the possibilities!
