Looks for Less: J. Crew Philo Eyelet Blouse

I've been scouring the J. Crew website quite a bit this weekend {if you follow me on Twitter, you'll know that I'm planning a trip to my nearest brick and mortar store today, and I like to go prepared}, and among their many drool-worthy items, I particularly love this blouse.  It epitomizes summer for me, but I can still think of twenty ways to wear it for spring.  After gazing at it for a while, I realized that it reminded me of a top from this post, which also comes in white:

Philo Eyelet Blouse, $78, J. Crew {link}
Embroidered Linen-Blend Top, $24.50, Old Navy {link}

I think it's a dead ringer.  What do you think?  Do you love the top from J. Crew?  What would you wear it with?  Do you think the Old Navy version is close enough?  {Do you want to come shopping with me today?  I'm leaving in half and hour.}  Leave a comment!

OH! I want to come shopping with you! I never have anyone to shop with. Too bad we live 3000 miles apart.

I think it's a great find. It's similar with a little less detail, but it's detail I could live without.

I'd probably wear it with dark rinse skinnies and a colored flat.

I actually like the Old Navy top better. :) Have fun shopping!

I think this is a good look for less. I went over to the Old Navy site and checked it out. I read the reviews on the shirt. I love how some sites do that now. Anyway, It got really bad reviews. SOOOO I'm thinking it's one of those shirts you can't order online but rather check out at the store. I plan to do that. Thx.

I love both tops! I definitely think a white blouse is perfect for spring/summer. I'm with you, J. Crew is amazing and if I ever win a mall shopping spree, I would probably spend all of my time there!

I actually think I like the Old Navy one better. Is that odd?! haha :)
