If you haven't had enough of the black watch patetr, there is a Nightshirt in Black Watch pattern as well. 

I was extremely happy to see the Shearling Hoodie is back. I have had several in the past and I've worn them to death.

J. Crew - November 2016

Last weekend I headed downtown, so of course a trip to JC was in order. A few new pieces got my attention, among them the Tuxedo-Inspired Long-Sleeve T-Shirt (size S, heather dove). This tee reminds me of a similar one I got many years ago, but it is much nicer quality. The fabric is cotton/poly. I like the tuxedo front and the cuffs, which ar emade from the same fabric as the front panel.

Another top, a Liberty print button-down shirt (size 6, style F8165) which I cannot see on the website. This is my size in fitted shirts, so it feels TTS. I loved the print of this shirt a lot.

Next was the Metallic Chiffon Top in Ditsy Floral Print (size 4,  peri multi). The fabric is a silk & poly mix. While I loved the print, the top felt boxy on me. Fits TTS.

Lastly, the V-Neck Swing Sweater (size S, heather graphite). The yarn is a wool/nylon/viscose blend, all very soft. The description is a bit off on the website, as it talks about a wool & linen blend. It also comes in 4 other colours as well.

That's about it for now. Have you been to JC lately? What did you like? Please share! :)

Hope your week has started well, and have a great day tomorrow!

J. Crew Factory - November

A couple of weeks ago I visited the local Factory store with my shopping buddy CC. We saw quite a few fall and winter jackets, among which the Quilted Jacket (size M, warm bisque). I chose M for a better fit across the chest. It's all poly and machine washable, and comes in navy and black as well.

I am a fan of shirtdresses worn with Pixie pants or leggings for a very casual look, and this Flannel Shirtdress got my attention. I picked up also size M, but this was huge on me, so I would say go with your regular size in this item.

Quilted Puffer Vest (size M, bleached sand). I loved the colour and the look of this vest. It comes in 4 other colours as well.

Lastly, the Plaid Classic Button-Down Shirt in Perfect Fit (size M, black). This shirt is fitted, so size up for a looser fit. It is all cotton and machine washable. I loved the colours of the plaid pattern a lot.

What else I lik at the Factory:

How about you? Have you been to the Factory store lately? What did you like?

Hope you are all having a great Tuesday out there!
