J.Crew popover blouse

I couldn't resist getting this piece when I spotted it stores. I wore it quite casually here today with Zara's crochet shorts and a pair of sandals from Aldo. But what I really treasure this piece for, is its vibrant flame pop of color when paired up against the usual office attire of black pencil skirts, trousers, blazers, and such- it keeps the ensemble from being boring. I usually shy off from getting such bold colors like this to avert attention, but my summer tan seems to make me I think I can pull this off (for now!).
Checking off both the dressed up and dress down ability of this blouse, it passes the qualifications of a versatile piece. And you know I damn well love my versatile pieces! It's cut to be flattering, appropriate, and makes the outfit well put-together for being a sleeveless top.
I'm slightly obsessed with J.crew at the moment and of course have my mental wishlist ready: bags (like this and this), shoes (like this), and omg let's not get started with their jewelry (it would get out of control if I started listing). Safe to say, I have not lost my mind and purchased everything in there...yet.
