Earlier this week I had an appointment downtown and I stopped briefly at J. Crew to see some of the new arrivals in person.
Right at the entrance I noticed the Linen C'Est La Vie Tee in 'blue floral.' I tried on size S, my usual tee and top size at J. Crew, but it was too large. I would size down in this one. The neck edge is also unfinished, as you can probably see if you zoom in on the photo below or on the one on the website. The skirt is the Trellis Floral Skirt size 4. This is the usual size I take in A-line skirts at JC. It's quite short on me (5'6"). It's cotton with a bit of stretch in it, and it is fully lined. There is also a Merino Baseball Sweater in Trellis Floral, as well as a tee, but in coral and white.
Next was the Linen Baseball Tee in Lovebirds, also size S. This fits TTS to large, in my opinion.
Next was the Surf Varsity Jacket size 4, my smaller of the two JC jacket sizes. The website calls this 'neoprene-like bonded jersey fabric.' Now I know what it reminded me of when I first tried it on: my neoprene computer bag I got from the Apple store a few years ago. Either that, or a wet suit.
Lastly for now, the Marled Jeweled Sweatshirt in 'navy vanilla' and size S again. I liked this piece the best of the four. It's all soft terry cotton, so what's not to like?
What else I'm liking at J. Crew:
Cutout Floral Sweatshirt (navy)
Side-Stripe Skinny Sweapants (black)
Lucie Mirror Metallic Slingback Flats (saw pair on display and they looked adorable)
Collection Everly Calf Hair Pumps (online only)
That's about it for now. Tomorrow I am meeting CC for lunch and very likely we will stop by our favourite retailers.
J. Crew is still offering 40% off the sale prices (or 50% in some cases) with code HAPPYSALE through Feb. 4. Did you find something interesting this sale round? If so, please share!
Thanks for visiting and have great weekend, everyone!
