J. Crew - May

Last weekend I was in the Village again and of course I had to stop at JC for a few minutes. I tried on the Faux Leather Zip Dress (size 6, black), which I really like, but unfortunately in the regular sizes it's too short on me (5'6"). I am tempted to order a Tall just to see how much longer it would be. What I noticed was how heavy this dress was when I first picked it up.

Fringy Tweed Jacket (size 6, ivory multi). I really liked this jacket. Size 6 is a bit tight in the shoulders on me though. The skirt is the Frayed Denim Pencil Skirt in White (size 28, white) and I got it a couple of weeks ago or so. I think the fringes will need a trimming soon. :) The shoes are the Metallic Suede Cleo Loafers are old and I got them either last year or the year before.

Le Capitaine Garment-Dyed Sweatshirt (size S, navy). I expected this to be made of thick, sweatshirt material, and was pleasantly surprised to see it is light weight. Size S is my usual size in these tops.

Striped Tunic (size S, muslin cobalt) was also a like. I liked the thickness of the T-shirt material. I would probably wear this either at the beach or around the house.

Patchwork-striped T-shirt (size S, red ivory multi) is my favourite of thetwo colours this T-shirt comes in.

Cotton Cable Crewneck Sweater (size S, navy). I liked the yarn and the three colours this sweter comes in. It should be nice to wear it on a cool, summer evening.

What else I'm liking at J. Crew right now:

How about you? What are your favourites at JC these days? Please share! Thanks for stopping by, and have a great day out there!

J. Crew - April (II)

I have a few photos from my latest JC visit that I wanted to share. First of all, the Women's J. Crew for the Xerces Society Save The Bees Tee (size M). Fifty percent of the profits from the sales of this tee will benefit this society in its effort to save the bees. I loved the print a lot as it is quite colourful. I sized up to Medium since I would like to wear this tee a bit looser. There is also a girl's version that is equally cute. The skirt is the Frayed Denim Pencil Skirt (size 28, doran wash) and you may have seen it in a previous post in a larger size.

Nex item I tried on was the Midi Skirt in Cotton Clip-Dot (size 4, burnished orange). This is not a style of skirt I would normally look for, but I thought it was fun and of course, I loved the colour. Size 4 is my usual size in this style of skirt at J. Crew. It is all cotton, lined, and has side pockets. The T-shirt is the Striped Boatneck T-shirt (size S, ivory vivid flame), also all cotton.

Lastly, the Denim Jacket in Ecru Wash (size M, ecru wash). It is a cotton/elastane mix. I loved last year's version, and love this year's as well. I didn't end up buying it last year because I settled for the white version instead, so I think I will take the plunge this year. :)

That's it for now, but hope to go back next week sometime. How about you? What do you like in this roll-out? Please share!

Hope you are all having a great weekend!

J. Crew New Arrivals Picks

This morning JC had a new roll-out and I just had a look at the newest arrivals. I had been told by the store assistant this would be a large one,

Embroidered Linen Top. I love all 3 colours this top comes in.

Next was the Classic Popover Shirt in Stripe Gauze in vibrant red. I have a couple of cotton gauze from J. Crew from previews years and they are still holding up well.

Garment-dyed Cotton Popover Sweater would be nice to wear at the beach during cooler evenings.

Short-sleeve Shirtdress in Linen is a beautiful casual dress:
