My ABSOLUTE Summer Must Have Piece

We’re in the thick of summer, and the temperatures seem to be only be rising. Warmer temperatures lead to more “lazy days,” and I find myself reaching for one piece over and over. It’s light, it’s airy, and it can be dressed up or down…

It’s the J.Crew Factory Crinkled Gauze Boy Shirt (AND BONUS IT’S ON SALE RIGHT NOW)!
It truly is my ABSOLUTE summer must have piece. I remember when I first saw it online, it spoke to me. It has a certain timelessness to it while still being modern. I HAD TO HAVE IT. I drove to the local J.Crew Factory store and tried it on, and I loved it more on than I did in person.

Below are 3 summery outfits that incorporate this perfect piece.
