J. Crew is enticing us with new colourful arrivals in an attempt to get us out of the winter doldrums and get out there shopping. The website got a make-over as well, and opinions on it are divided. I have no complaints about it. White always showcases products better by offering more contrast.
I am scrolling through the new arrivals and am filling up my
shopping bag wishlist, looking at casual items only for now. First item I pick since I already tried it on in the store and know it fits TTS is the Cotton Waffle Pullover. I could have it in all the four colours it comes in. :)
I stop briefly at the Denim Western Shirt. I say briefly because I just saw the Banana Republic's Soft-Wash Denim Shirt last week and it's priced much better. It also is very nicely made, and with a 40% coupon just around the corner at BR, it is so much more affordable.
Another stop at the Contrast Stripe Tee. I like the neon peach pink version.

Toothpick Jean in Garment-Dyed Twill. I tried the bright papaya version here. The colour is much brighter in real life, as you can see from my photo.

9" Chino Shorts. I'll want them in
every white and/or khaki colour for walks at the beach.

I will have to compare them to the Summerweight Chino Shorts which have a 10" inseam to decide which look better.

No. 2 Pencil Skirt in Double Serge Cotton. This can be either casual or dressy, so I put it in the 'casual' category for now. I tried the warm jade in the store (photo here) and loved it, but would love to have the light rose instead.
