J Crew: Harlow Cardigan, Rainbow Stripe Sweater, Ruffled Popover in Polka Dot

~ Harlow Cardigan, Vibrant Kelly, Medium ~

This is the new cardigan from J.Crew. It’s merino wool with grosgrain ribbon tipping and gold buttons, like the wool Jackie. It’s a little fitted but you can stay in your true size. The arms are fairly long on me so I’d have to cuff them or scrunch them up. The Harlow Cardigan comes in an array of colors from basic black to Neon Wildflower. It’s a cute sweater but I’d probably get tired of the grosgrain trim.


~ Rainbow Stripe Sweater in Merino Wool, Medium ~

I’m on the fence with this striped sweater. I think I like it. The colors are good. The stripes match up from the body to the sleeves. It’s a lightweight Merino Wool. The Medium fits well, so it’s TTS. I can’t quite put my finger on it but I guess maybe there are too many colors, which makes it seem a little juvenile. It does work with the Sammie Pant in Corduroy in all colors.


~ Ruffled Popover Shirt in Polka Dot, size 8 ~

I Love!! I Want!! This ones was really cute IRL. The dots are white and the ruffle is at the neckline and down the button placket. It’s a thin cotton so it’s nice and airy. I think I would stick with the size 8. I’m fluctuating between and 8 and 10 right now so I’ve got to try shirts on, if at all possible. There’s also an Indigo Gauze Popover.


~ Structured Peplum Top in Stripe, Small ~

I really like both the stripes and peplum hem on this top. Since it’s structured and looks better fitted, I sized down to a Small. I feel the stripes make this top look a lot more flattering, especially the peplum portion. It’s also currently 25% off with code WEEKOFSTYLE.


~ Ruffled-Sleeve Top in Black Cherry Print, size 6, #F5331 ~

I loved this top at first sight. It’s not online but I hope it makes it there next week. The background is ivory with black cherries all over. My favorite Kool-Aid flavor is black cherry. Yum! This top is just like the Ratti Top, which I thought fit odd because of the pleating at the back of the neck. I think the difference might be the material. This top is 100% silk and flows nicely. I paid full price for it and have already worn it. The style number is #F5331 if you can’t wait to see if this shows up online. I’d say to take the smaller of your two sizes, since the size 6 fits great. I was at my store yesterday and either they put them away or they’ve already sold out of them.


What do you think of these tops? What about the black cherry print top?

    ‘My favorite Kool-Aid flavor is black cherry.’ — you are so damn cute! I didn’t even make that Black Cherry connection when I saw this top, duh. Someone was asking about this top on JCA because a few others spotted it in stores, and couldn’t find it online, but Ina said that this item is supposed to be from the October roll-out so her store ended up pulling them off the floor!! Which….whu?? I’m surprised they meant to debut this short-sleeved item so late in the year, when some parts of the country will have moved onto longer sleeves. (Of course, I’m sure this can be worn w/ a cardi, etc, but still surprising.) JC seems to be debuting a few items rather late into the season. Anywho, it’s really cute & that’s all that matters! Can’t wait to see it IRL.

    Loving that peplum, must try on, & don’t get me started on that Ruffled Polka-dot popover! Ruffles AND dots??!! Lo’ ha’ mercy, died & gone to polka-ruffle heaven. Also a must for me (despite having plenty of similar options, oy.)

    Agree with you about that striped sweater, too many colors possibly, pushing it into 4ever 21 territory. That cardi is cute, but i never wear them. Would you say it’s thin? Looks a little thin/see-thru.

    Anyways, have a great weekend, AB!!
