Could This Be My Perfect Striped Tee?

I have only been looking for the perfect striped tee since always. Last spring, I hit the mother load of stripes at the J. Crew near my house, but I can't wear linen year round and the St. James quickly became my most worn top.  I looked at J. Crew's classic boatneck tee, but didn't think it would be worth spending $40 on a tee when there were several other options on sale.  And yet, I kept going back to it.  It didn't help that it seems like all the bloggers have it (see it on Blair, Allison, and Kelly) and I felt like this would be just another item that I chased onto the proverbial bandwagon.  I finally tried it on during my last trip and couldn't pass up their 30% off promotion on knits. I love the way the boatneck is flattering on me and the thicker knit make it a solid top that doesn't have to be layered on.  I wore it to work this week with my other problem item, my wide-leg Céline trousers, and received multiple compliments.  I admit that I love this top with these trousers much better than my last misguided attempt seen here. This fitted top in a contrasting color is a better silhouette than the boxy button down I tried before.  I am so glad I bought this in both the red and the navy stripes!
