I received the J. Crew Silk Butterfly Blouse earlier today. Okay, I LOVE this print!
Here are a few IRL pictures of the blouse:
Again, I really like the print. I’m trying to decide how I feel about the fit. I rarely wear shirts without layering with a sweater. So, at the suggestion of my amazing retail VPS, I’m thinking about wearing this shirt with a navy Tippi sweater over it. I tried a coral Tippi, but you can see the print clearly under the sweater.
What do you think of the J. Crew Silk Butterfly Blouse? Do tell!
p.s. I have a review of the Tartine Satchel in Casablanca Blue and the Beaded Rose bracelet scheduled for tomorrow.
Thanks for stopping by!

I like it a lot. I think it would look nice with merino color block cardigan in grey mint … Just my opinion 🙂

Rynetta, this is such a cute print! I saw this after I placed my order for the silk tipped boy shirt, but I'll have to pick up the shorts in this print when it's warmer! Again, thanks for all of your reviews, it really makes shopping easier!
I really love this print. It looks a touch big, but I still love it on you. I think layering with a Tippi would look great. Was reading on another blog, a tip for layering – try a cami/shapewear over the button up – won't add bulk, but will help with the visible prints/buttons when layering.
I think this print looks adorable – would you say those butterflies are a pinkish/blush color? Or is that just the photography? So cute! I don't see what you are referring to as far as fit – not clear in the photos; but I always have trouble with the blouses b/c to fit my chest, the sleeves and body are big/long. But I usually wear a vest or cardigan, so it works out ok. Show us some of your outfits with it soon!?! Thanks!

Rynetta, the blouse is beautiful!! Thanks for posting your review and photos. I was just putting sets together for styling this one since it was also on my list of favorites. I'll post those tomorrow. I was wondering about the color IRL, does it have blue or yellow undertones? Thanks! 🙂

thanks for the review – the butterflies are really fun – i'd pair it with a cardigan so you can see more of the print but the sweater over top also works. can't wait to see what you do with it.xox P

That color is gorgeous! Definitely on my watch list.
swoon! I thought I could pass this one by, but the dark green is so cute!! Thanks for showing it off!
I like this blouse – is it similar quality to the Blythe Blouse? It is such a fun, graphic print! I know it wouldn't work for me as I am too short, and busty! I would be afraid it would look like the butterflies were alighting on my chest! I like the nvy tippi idea a lot. WOuld it match with last year's basketweave skirt that you have?
I absolutely love this ! I agree coral would look nice with this, and it's too bad the Tippi showed the print through it.
