Three Outfits and J. Crew Postcard Print

Hi Everyone!

Here are three of my most recent outfits.  The outfits are all J. Crew, of course!



I wore this outfit to church earlier today:



And, here is the outfit that I wore yesterday:


Finally, here is the outfit that I wore this past Friday:


And, here are my thoughts on the J. Crew Postcard Print, which is one of my absolute faves!  The print is really fun and striking for summer!  This ruffle top is stunning.  I love how well the top and the print pair with dark denim.  The fit is TTS.  


I'm also a huge fan of the J. Crew A-line Button-up Skirt in Postcard Print and the Off-the-Shoulder Ruffle-Hem Dress in Postcard Print.  Both of these pieces are fantastic summer wardrobe additions!  I love how well this print works for pattern mixing.  The dress and the skirt fit TTS:




And, here is another styling option for the skirt:


I LOVE the J. Crew Button-front Ruffle Top with this print!

Candid Conversations: Where to Wear It

Hi Everyone!

Recently, I have noticed a lot of people making comments on various social media outlets about not having anywhere to wear certain clothing items.  I've seen various comments about loving a piece, but being reticent about purchasing it.  I love wearing bold statement pieces.  And, I love the idea of wearing those statement pieces in the most unexpected places.  I dress for myself, so I do not think about what others might have to say about an outfit.  I refuse to feel out of place wherever I go.  If I love an item, I don't let the question of where I'm going to wear it stop me from purchasing.   I will wear the item to church, to the classroom, to the park, to dinner.  I'd add the grocery store if I shopped for groceries, LOL!  For example, I wore the following outfit to church this past Sunday :


This skirt is my absolute FAVORITE--I felt fantastic wearing it!  And, I received so many compliments on this look.  I cannot wait to wear this gorgeous skirt again soon!  I encourage you to wear what you love wherever you want to wear it!  Be confident.  Be bold.  And, wear what you love!

Outfit Take Two!

Hi Everyone!

I am constantly thinking about how to style the items in my closet multiple ways.  I wore the J. Crew Collection Striped Sequin Skirt to church this past Sunday.  I LOVE this skirt because it's absolutely stunning and flattering.  And, the skirt is super versatile!  Here is how I styled the skirt initially:

I was totally inspired by this J. Crew Pinterest image:



And, here is how I plan to style the skirt the next time that I wear it.  This image is from the 769 Madison Avenue Collection Store in New York City:


I LOVE the idea of pairing the sequin skirt with these neutral pieces!  The J. Crew Short-Sleeve Popover in Piece-Dyed Linen and the J. Crew Elliott Leather Heels in Dark Cobblestone look SO good against the sequins.  The neutral colors really make the skirt stand out and pop.  I also love pairing the skirt with the J. Crew  Elliott Heels in Liberty Thorpe Floral.

The Thomas Mason for J. Crew Collarless Shirt also looks great with this skirt!

I love the pineapple print dress behind this look, too.  Fit is TTS!

J. Crew Puckered Gingham Dress with Eyelet Trim and 40% off!

Hi Everyone!

The J. Crew Puckered Gingham Dress with Eyelet Trim is an absolutely adorable and super flattering dress!  This beauty is really ideal for summer.

Here is an IRL picture of the dress:


I am constantly reaching for pieces that are easy to wear when it's hot and sticky outside.  This gorgeous dress is so easy to wear when it's hot and humid outside because the material is airy/breezy. The fit is TTS for me.  One reviewer on the J. Crew website suggests sizing down, but I would not. The eyelet trim adds the perfect touch to this gingham look.  Gingham + Pearls + a Denim Jacket = my ideal look!

This dress is 40% off today with code TODAYONLY.  And, here are a few of the other pieces that I own and love that are also on promotion:

J. Crew Spaghetti-Strap Dress in Ratti Pineapple Print

Hi Everyone!

The J. Crew Ratti Pineapple Print is SO unique and fun!  The colors are vibrant and striking.  This is absolutely one of my favorite prints!  And, it's a great pattern that screams summer!

The J. Crew Spaghetti-Strap Dress in Ratti Pineapple Print is without question one of my favorite dresses.  The dress is great quality and it's super flattering.  The spaghetti straps are adjustable and the dress is fully lined.  The material is cotton, so it's airy and great for a super hot summer day.  The dress fits TTS.  I paired my dress with the J. Crew Cropped Denim Jacket in Cavanal Wash (as seen on a retail store mannequin):


I highly recommend this fabulous dress. The dress would work well for a date night, for a summer wedding, or for church.

And, I could not resist the J. Crew A-line Skirt in Ratti Pineapple Print!  I love the idea of pairing this print with the J. Crew Made in the Shade t-shirt.  The skirt has an elastic waistband, so be sure to size down one size:


And, here are more J. Crew "pineapple print" options:

J. Crew Tie-Neck Top in Striped Silk

Hi Everyone!

The J. Crew Tie-Neck Top in Striped Silk is one of my favorite recent purchases.  This top is absolutely fabulous; it's unsurprising that it has received a 5-star review on the J. Crew website. I'm a total sucker for stripes, but adding an adorable bow to this top really makes it special.  I love the fact that this top can be worn sleeveless or with a cute blazer or sweater over it.  The armholes fit perfectly--there is absolutely no gaping.  This beautiful top is so versatile and flattering.  The styling options are endless.  I highly recommend this top!  The J. Crew Tie-Neck Top in Oxford Cotton is equally fabulous.

Here is an IRL  picture of the blouse:



I am wearing my normal size 12 in this blouse.  The fit is TTS to slightly big.  The material is silk, which requires this top to be dry cleaned, but I prefer to dry clean my clothing.  I'm wearing this gorgeous blouse with the J. Crew Rhodes Blazer in Linen, but the J. Crew Campbell Blazer in Linen works well, too.  This blouse also looks great in the model shot with the J. Crew Denim Skirt with Raw Hem.    

I am trying to get through a backlog of reviews this week, so please check back as I review the following gorgeous J. Crew pieces!:
