I love a good windowpane print. There’s something about the shadowy interplay between black and white that is at once elegantly timeless and graphically modern. I practically wore out my favorite windowpane scarf this winter, so as temperatures finally started to warm up, I began the hunt for a more lightweight iteration.

After plenty of online window shopping, I finally found exactly what I was looking for in this printed silk tee from J.Crew. Not only do I love the small-scale windowpane print, but (almost) more importantly, I love the small design details. Supple silk inhabits an oversized t-shirt silhouette, mixing high and low aesthetics with signature Lyons aplomb. Slender black piping traces the shirttail hem, furthering the fun interplay between casual and luxe. I really could go on about this shirt for awhile…I think my day job is rubbing off on me.

But, in wrapping up this post, I suppose I should mention that since my #WearMoreHats campaign of 2015 began, I’ve been stocking up on headwear in earnest. My latest acquisition—this white straw Panama hat—is miraculous in that it both fits my very large head and cost a mere fifteen dollars. Win/win/windowpane.
