Weekend Outfits: All J. Crew

Hi Everyone!

I've said this before, but I'll repeat it again:  I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE my retail Very Personal Stylist.  She's amazing.   She always helps me put together outfits that make me feel super confident.  She suggested pairing the Talitha Blouse with my Schoolboy Blazer in Linen.  I love this outfit combination.

Here is my outfit for a conference on Friday night:



I'm wearing the Talitha blouse in the wreath color above with the Navy Linen Schoolboy Blazer.  I was trying to squeeze out the last bit of summer with linen!  I wore the Lula Patent flats in Walnut.

I reversed the above outfit for Saturday.  I wore the Schoolboy Blazer in Linen in Festival Green with the Navy Talitha Blouse.  I wore the Crystal Cluster Necklace instead of the pearls in this outfit:



Finally, here is my church OOTD featuring the Tessa Top, the No. 2 Pencil Skirt in Neon Tweed, and the Desert Bloom Necklace:




Our camera is acting wonky, so apologies for the super light pictures.  

I hope that everyone is having a great Sunday!  Thanks for stopping by!

J. Crew Factory Polka-Dot Pencil Skirt

Hi Everyone!

It's no secret that I love polka dots!  I was super happy when the lovely AppGal reviewed the J. Crew Factory Polka-Dot Pencil Skirt here.  I don't live near a factory store, so I rely on reviews!

Here are a few IRL pictures of the skirt:






I really like this skirt!  I should note, however, that the skirt is not lined.  I know that this will be a deal breaker for some people, but  it doesn't bother me that the skirt isn't lined.

What do you think of the J. Crew Factory Polka-Dot Pencil Skirt?  Do tell!

Also, I'll definitely post a review of the J. Crew Factory Charley Sweater in Polka-Dot this weekend.  The sweater must have been very popular; it was sold out for a few days, but now it's back on the website with an October backorder date.

Thanks for stopping by!

J. Crew Silk Boy Shirt in French Hen, a new Tippi Sweater, and a new scarf

Hi Everyone!

I've been excited about the Silk Boy Shirt in French Hen since the lovely ajc reviewed it here.  Initially, I purchased the hen scarf; however, I like the shirt a lot better.

I'm sure that I'll keep my outfit simple like the website image here:


Here are a few IRL pictures of the shirt (apologies for the blurry images; our camera just didn't want to work earlier):






Also, here is an IRL picture of a new Tippi sweater:


I'm thinking of pairing this Tippi with a polka dot shirt underneath.  However, I'm on the fence about this sweater because of the tan stripes.  I just don't like the color on me.

And, finally, here are a few pictures of a new scarf:



What do you think of these items?  Do tell!

J. Crew Biennial Medium Satchel in Blue Grotto--Detailed Review

Hi Everyone!

I have more IRL pictures of the lovely J. Crew Biennial Medium Satchel in Blue Grotto.  I LOVE this bag.  Initially, I purchased the Biennial Satchel in Red; however, that bag was too large for me.

Here are a few IRL pictures of the Biennial Medium Satchel, which my amazing husband says looks like a mini bowling bag, LOL:



The bag is really roomy:




I think that this is a great bag!  The quality is superb, and as I've said before, J. Crew does color really well.

What do you think of the J. Crew Biennial Medium Satchel in Blue Grotto?  Do tell!

I'll post reviews of the J. Crew Factory Pencil Skirt in Polka-Dot, the factory Charley Sweater in Polka-Dot, and the J. Crew Silk Hen shirt tomorrow morning.

J. Crew New Arrivals: A Few Quick Pictures

Hi Everyone!

I stopped by the J. Crew retail store earlier today to check out the new arrivals.  Here are a few quick pictures.  It wasn't a big rollout.

The Optic-Dot Top:


I really like this top.  I love this website image featuring the Optic-Dot Top and the No. 2 Pencil Skirt in Graphic Print.  However, I'm not sure that I can pull off this bold pattern mixing:


The Optic-Dot Top came home with me.  There is a new Tippi Sweater hanging up behind me in the dressing room.  Here is a picture of the sweater:


There is also a new Schoolboy Blazer:



And, finally, I grabbed the Silk Hen Blouse:



I will post a review of the hen blouse later this week.  Initially, I purchased the hen scarf, but I returned it.  I decided that the blouse is much more functional for me.  

Also, I have the following reviews scheduled for this week:

Tuesday:  J. Crew Medium Biennial Satchel in Blue Grotto 
Wednesday:  J. Crew Factory Printed Pencil Skirt in Polka Dot and Charley Sweater in Polka Dot
Thursday:  J. Crew Silk Hen Blouse

What do you think of these new arrivals?  Do tell!
