J. Crew No. 2 Pencil Skirt in Geometric Print

Hi Everyone!

I've been eyeing the J. Crew No. 2 Pencil Skirt in Geometric Print since it appeared on the website.  However, I hesitated to grab it because I was concerned that the print would be too much on my rear.  Then, I saw this lovely skirt on xoxo of the wonderful Will Work 4 Shoes blog here, and I knew that I had to have the skirt!

I grabbed this beauty just in time because it is sold out in my size online now.  Here are a few IRL pictures of the skirt (please excuse the mess in my closet):



Here is a closer picture of the pattern:


I plan to style the skirt with navy like it is on the website here:

Madewell Giant Jackalope Sweater and the J. Crew Factory 50% Off Promotion

Hi Everyone!

I hope that everyone had a great Thanksgiving!  We had a fantastic holiday.  We typically spend Thanksgiving with my former dissertation director and her amazing family (her fabulous husband was on my committee as well).  It's always a blast for us; we got up early to do some Black Friday shopping at the J. Crew Factory store, which was loads of fun.

Now, here are a few IRL pictures of the Madewell Giant Jackalope Sweater.  I LOVE this sweater!:



I can't wait to wear this lovely sweater!  The material is great and I really love the color of the jackalope!

Finally, here are two photos that I snapped in the J. Crew Factory Store.  I have the Puffin Sweater in the first picture and I love it!  



I LOVE the skirt in this second picture.  Too bad the store didn't have my size.  I'll have to order this beauty while the 50% off the entire store is going on.


I know that the critter sweaters aren't for everyone, but what do you think of the Madewell Giant Jackalope Sweater?  Do tell!

Hi Everyone!

Happy Sunday!  This is a quick post featuring the outfit that I wore to church.  Can I just say that I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE the J.

Here is my outfit:

J. Crew New Arrivals: A Few Pictures and an OOTD

Hi Everyone!

This is my first time blogging since Sunday.  I worked the election in my precinct on Tuesday, and I am just recovering from both the mental preparation and the actual work.  I LOVE working the elections, but I always feel super exhausted after it's all over.

Here is a picture of my OOTD from today:


I'm wearing the J. Crew Hacking Jacket in Vibrant Orange from last year with a necklace from Francesca's Collections.  

Also, I stopped by the J. Crew retail store earlier today to check out a few new sweaters and a new bubble necklace.  Here are a few pictures of the things I grabbed:

Take A Bow Sweater:






 A Tippi Heart Sweater:


A Tippi  Sweater with Stripes (this one didn't come home with me, but I'm thinking about grabbing it):


And, finally, a new bubble necklace in a mint color.  I know that some people are tired of the bubble necklaces, but I love them!:


Anything catch your eye?

Thanks for stopping by!
