J.Crew – Jackie Cardigan in Herringbone, Art Tees, Rayner Chino, Cropped Wide-Leg Pant in Linen-Cotton

~ Jackie Cardigan in Herringbone, Medium ~

The Jackie is cotton but a little thicker due to the herringbone weave. It feels textured. I like the contrasting ringer neck and sleeve hem. This is TTS with my normal Medium fitting just fine, even with a layered tee. I do wish this was in Navy though I have wish-listed this gray.


~ New York Destination Art Tee, Medium ~

I didn’t mind buying these full-price since I know I’ll wear them the rest of the Summer and layered under cardis and blazers in the Fall. They’ll get enough wear to bring the CPW down. I wasn’t going to get the NY Tee but there’s a Doxie on it. This specific tee I tried did seem a little snug in the arms, probably due to the ringer detail but the others were TTS.

~ Cropped Wide-Leg Pant in Linen-Cotton, Ecru, size 8 ~
~ Sloan Gingham Leather D’Orsay Flats, size 6 1/2 ~

These run small in the hips. The fly is button-front and you can see how it pulls, not laying flat at all. I like the width of the leg. The hem isn’t all the way to the ground so I would need to have them hemmed to cropped length. I don’t even think a size 10 would fit well across the hips. There’s too much pulling on the 8. The pant is a linen-cotton blend and doesn’t wrinkle as quickly as 100% linen pants. The Sloan flats are popping back occasionally. They’ll be a great little punch of color in the Fall. If you prefer, there’s also the Elsie D’Orsay Heel.


~ Rayner Chino, Blue, size 8 ~

I can’t tell if this color and the pink sold out or were taken off the site. But these were in-store and I was able to finally try the Rayner Chinos. I was really hoping I would like them but I am not a fan. As much as I love wide-leg pants these are ill-fitting from the waist to the start of the inseam. Basically the rise feels too long. When I sit down it bunches. This doesn’t give me high hopes for the jean. I do like the fit of the leg, where the rise ends to the hem. The 25-inch inseam is the perfect pant length on me.


I’m super sad about the Rayner Chinos. I am hoping the Rayner jean doesn’t fit like the chino. I tried them in petite and they were really tight so I need to try my normal jean size of 29.

What do you think of the Destination Art Tees?
