Here are more photos from two recent JC visits. The No. 2 Pencil Skirt in Gardenshade Floral is currently on sale. With the additional discount, it is an even better deal. I got this last week during the 30% promo and I plan to wear it a lot this summer. One of the tops I paired this with is the Tippi Sweater. I am trying it with 2 different colours, and it works well with either. I blogged about the Tippi Sweater on several occasions before (here, here, here and here).
There is some pink in the pattern of the skirt, so I think a pink sweater would work well too. I found a 100% crewneck sweater called the Thandie at the Factory store which is very similar to the Tippi below. It was priced at $49.99 and with the current 40% off promo on sweaters at the crewlet, it came to only $30. The Jackie Pullover in the blue colour would also look good.
Next I tried the same skirt with the Natasha Top in size 2 and 'heather dark grape.' I am usually a size 2 in tops and 4 in shirts. It's also a pretty colour top that would go well with this skirt.
The Lila Patent Platform Wedges are my regular shoe size at J. Crew (size 8). The height is comfortable, but the leather edges were a bit rough. I also didn't care much for the canvas-covered platform. I think they made them look cheap, but that's just my opinion.
And lastly, I also tried the Natasha Top with the No. 2 Pencil Skirt in Double-Serge Cotton, also size 2 and 'natural' colour. See the 'mauve morning' version of this skirt from last summer here.
I have a few more try-ons for a future post. Hope you are having a great beginning of the week, everyone!
