J Crew Review: Tessa Top

I ordered the Tessa top in Dazzling Sun during the 30% off promo as a ride-along.  I fully intended to return it, especially since I already have the Safari Cat Tessa ($29.99 + 30% off) and picked up the Chili Tessa ($49.99 + 30% off) last week.  I really thought it would be more of a mustardy yellow like the #2 pencil in Golden Sunflower, but it's not.  It is a beautiful yellow - bright, but not neon.  As you can see below I immediately put together several outfits.  I guess it's a keeper :).

As I mentioned previously in my review of the Safari Cat Tessa, I love the fit on these tops.  They are flowy, but no overwhelming.  I took my regular J. Crew Perfect Shirt size of 4.  I could have gone with a 2 and it would have been more fitted, but I like the flowy look.  I like the weight of the linen - not too light and not too heavy - just right.  Also, I wore the Safari Cat to work all day and suprisingly I was not a wrinkled mess at the end of the day.

I have much love for the linen Tessa top! 

Excuse the wrinkled mess - it just came out of the J. Crew bag.
