J Crew’s peony tee (99196, $45) runs XXS – XL. Linen. Handwash. The color is called peony print (PPR). Use SUNNY for 20% off thru 3/8. 20% off tees also good in-store.
Size S – This size felt like the right size for me. I wouldn’t size down, personally. I don’t like things clingy at all. Check it out…

I like the colors of the flower and greenery.
I thought the flower was a tad big in scale.
Horrible neckline. I had a great striped J Crew tee that I had to dump because the neckline didn’t keep its shape. A lot like this. Perhaps you bought one, too. The one that Jenna wore on a show and we saw her neckline twisted as well. This is how we’re starting out and we haven’t even left the store? Bad.
This shot gives an idea of the weight of the tee. Light. It wasn’t ridiculously thin, but this is thinner than I’d like. I don’t really need to confirm to the world that I’m wearing a bra and its positioning of straps on my back.
I decided to see how it looked framed by a jacket. To give an idea if a cardigan would be nice with it. I’m wearing the Factory downtown field which I don’t see online. They have the navy downtown field (27584) in the J’Crewlets for $125 before any addtl discount or promo. I have both retail and factory and they look and feel exactly the same.
That flower is still too big for my taste.
Midnight floral tee ($45) – I wish this were in shades of pink. I did see it briefly in-store, but didn’t try it on. It has since sold out. I assume the fit is similar to the peony tee. Both are linen. I wish it were pink tones, instead of purple. Check it out on 1 More Shopping Blog and on Shop With M.
Madewell’s slideshow tee in stripe ($49.50) might be more my speed as well, if I wanted something floral. I like the allover print in front. The back is striped.
