Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great staple Bought this shirt in blue, wish they had the other colors available in my size because I would buy them all! Great wardrobe staple, especially for spring.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent fit! Could be worn casually, or easily dressed up. It is definitely my new favorite shirt and I wish I would have bought more colors so I could wear it all the time. Some of the stitching has some odd zig sag designs, but I think that is just apart of the design and barely noticable. Great length, great fit, great style. Seriously, you need to buy one now.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Met My Expectations I have a larger bust than most but heard that it ran large so ordered a small anyway because I don't like boxy or big shirts. The shirt fit nicely everywhere else and did gap in the chest area when I buttoned it up to the 2nd button, so I just unbuttoned it and it fit fine. It was snug enough that it didn't open up in the chest too much so was appropriate that way (though could work with a slim tank under). This is more of a casual shirt to wear on the weekends but could be pulled off in a more laid back office setting. I got the blue color and love it! The only strange thing about it is it looks like it's missing a bottom button but it isn't, the shirt is just made that way to not button down as far as expected. So might be better tucked in like the model shows. Overall, very comfortable and cute tomboy look, I like it styled a little messy with the collar not neatly folded down all the way and with a fun necklace. It would be cute tucked into a skirt for a girlier look as well.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Favorite Casual/Comfortable Shirt In My Closet super happy with the pockets and structure of this shirt, fits great, sleeves are possibly a tiny bit short but still cute fit. i really like the colors as well (bought blue, pink, sage green).

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I love the fresh fabric! I literally live on the button down shirts-it's like my uniform- and these shirts are perfect for the spring/summer. The fresh fabric with washed look is less feminine which I think is adorable. I have every color except pink and so far I have pair them with all the bottoms I have: velvet pants, leather pants, tuxido pants, pencil skirts, leather shorts, and even flower print chinos. I love it! I am plannining on wearing them with shorts in early summer.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great shirt I purchased this shirt in blue and have been very happy with it. As a nursing mom, I have been on the lookout for cute button-downs and this one is perfect.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Super cute lightweight shirt This shirt makes me feel like the hottest tour guide in Jurassic Park. It's super comfy and the light green color I got is perfect. A lot of people said that this shirt ran small, but I don't agree-- the description notes that this shirt runs "true to size", not loose or boyfriend fit, so I ordered my normal small and it fits me just like it does on the model, though maybe is a tiny bit shorter. I am a 34a though so I could see it fitting a bit tight if you are bigger on top. If you want more of a boyfriend fit, I would size up a size. This shirt does feel a bit crinkly and lightweight, but in a great way! Can't wait to wear this nonstop this spring and summer.
