J. Crew - February (V)

The Downtown Field Jacket in size S has been around for a while, but I have never tried it on. I got the Waxed Utility jacket at the end of last year's season, so I had no use for 2 similar jackets. I like mine better, as it is a bit longer and has buttons instead of snaps. All that said, both are good for our wet climate. All I could I wish for was that they had a hood too.

I blogged about the Natasha Top here before. The skirt is the new No. 2 Pencil Skirt in Medallion Paisley.  I am a big fan of pencil skirts, but I wasn't too excited about this print. It's still a very nice skirt for the summer.

Space-Dyed Cardigan in size S and 'space dyed royal.' The other colour is 'space dyed grey.' Fits TTS and loved it in real life. It's much more colourful than in the photo.

I blogged about the following items before. The Cotton Waffle Pullover in 'copper' can be seen here and the No. 2 Pencil Skirt in Gardenshade Floral can be seen in Monday's post here. The pullover seems to be quite well done and it's wishlisted. I am wearing the 'heather chalk' below. See the 'copper' on CC here.

And lastly for now, the Olympia Suede Wedges. I was instantly attracted to the hot pink heels in one of the spring preview photos, but only the wedges were in the store when I visited. These are my usual JC shoe size (8) and 'apricot mist' colour. They are very comfortable to walk in.

On my list to check out soon:

Malta midheel sandals in 'fresh mango'
Sydney patent sandals in bronzed clay
I have a few more JC items to show as well as some factory ones, but in a future post.

Have a great end of the week, everyone!


  1. I really like the Space Dyed Cardigan!

  2. Regarding the downtown field jacket, wish they'd also add a belt, and make it in a nice shade of brown. Boden has something similar to what I described but I haven't tried it. Thank you for the reviews!

  3. With as many jackets as I own, the downtown field is one of my very favorites. I'm with you on the medallion paisley skirt, not sure about that one, reminds me of tiles. Love the space-dyed cardi on you.

  4. Pamela, thanks for visiting! It's really beautiful IRL!

    JustVisiting, I should make my way to Boden to see it. Thank you for dropping by!

    tiffany rose, a jacket like that s bound to get lots of wear. It's so versatile, and I am surprised I didn't own one until last year. You are also right about the tiles & the skirt. Thanks!
