J Crew: Carrie Cami in Watercolor Floral, Toothpick Cone Denim Jean in Pacific Wash

Under the Rhodes Blazer in Italian Wool I wore the Carrie Cami in Watercolor Floral. I immediately knew I would be buying this cami as soon as I saw it in-store.

I took a size 8, based on previous try-ons. It draped well and wasn’t tight across the chest. Unlike the Silk Cami, this does not have adjustable straps. The cami is silk and the back is a racerback. Either a strapless bra or a cardigan you’ll keep on all day are needed for this cami.

The colors are beautiful. I would have never paired lilac and bright blue together but it totally works. I have several layering outfit ideas for this cami that I hope to show you soon.

I am completely set on denim right now but these were interesting. I have several pair of Toothpick Jeans and the material on these felt really nice. The Toothpick on the Miller Wash I have are super soft but these had a little bit of a rough but comfortable feel to them. I really liked them. And they fit great in my normal size 29. 

The inseam is 28-inches and are normal length on me.

They added a leather tag on the back of the jean as well.

Here are a lot more options in the Watercolor Floral print. I really love the print on the Colette Fabric d’Orsay Mid Heels.
Lastly, I’d just like to recognize my dad. His birthday is today. He’s been gone for almost 2 1/2 years and though it gets a little easier each year, the Holidays and birthdays get a little tough. Staying busy is tough, especially with no child at home now. That’s where this blog and you readers come in. Thank you so much for keeping me on your reading list. I love this little outlet of mine and the ‘friends’ I’ve made over the years.
I’d like to share with you one of my favorite pictures of my dad. We were living in Azores, Portugal and I was 4 & 5 during that time. This was taken during one of his many many BBQs he hosted. He loved to grill! And he loved that little beret too! Love you Dad!

Have a Great Day!

    I love that picture of your dad, good memories for you to go back to…

    I think the print is very springy and would only work in a mild climate Looks great on you!

    I often read your blog and really appreciate your reviews but rarely get to comment on any blog with two little ones always interrupting me. 🙂 the pic of your dad is lovely he looks really charismatic. I lost my dad in January and know how truly hard it is. I really wish you well.
    As for the reviews, I think the Carrie cami and that print look wonderful on you, very flattering. I bought the marble print top so will have to hold off on this one but not sure which print I like better. Thanks again for taking the time for reviews. 🙂

      Jan – I'm so very sorry for your loss. I wish YOU well.

      I would have loved if the Marble Print Top had been made on the Carrie Cami. I really like that print and am still contemplating getting the Chiffon Dress.
