A couple of weekends ago, while visiting Seattle with CC, we stopped briefly at J. Crew as well. The new arrivals were in, but a lot of them seemed to be already sold out in my size. Initially, I didn't take the Regent Blazer to try it on but after seeing it on CC I wanted to check it out as well. I liked the longer fit than that of the Schoolboy Blazer. As I am looking for more jackets these days, I am putting this on my list. I might even go for a tall size, to get a slightly longer jacket. I am wearing size 6, for reference.

Next were the Shiny Puffer Vest size S and the Drapey Wool Sweatpants size 2. I took size S in the Excursion Vest but this one seems a tad smaller on me. I loved the colour of this vest! The pants are incredibly comfortable, as I expected them to be, based on my experience with the wool sweatpants I got last winter. In my opinion, I think they run a bit large. I usually wear size 2 in the Minnies and Pixies, and size 4 in the capris. I didn't try on size 0, for comparison. I put these on my list as well. They would be perfect for when I walk my pooch in the winter.
Lambswool Shirttail Sweater in Blue in size S and 'heather carbon.' I wasn't crazy about this one at first, but I can see it looking nice with a pair of tight pants for a casual look. The dark grey is my favourite shade of grey and I liked the textured pattern of the knit on this sweater. The pants are the same as above but in size 4 and 'heather charcoal.'
Lastly, the Collection Sophie Calf Hair Loafers size 8, my usual shoe size. I found the width comfortable and the print really cute on these loafers.
That's all for now, but I have a few more photos for a next post.
J. Crew is offering 25% off 'fall must-haves' through September 8. I am not sure I am ready to shop for fall yet. Today I was till eating ice cream at the beach. How about you? Are you shopping fall items yet? If so, please share!
Hope you all had a great long weekend, and have a great short week ahead!
