J Crew has had a promo every day this week with the final promo being 40% off Final Sale with code DAYFIVE. I wanted to share with you a couple of items I have been wearing that are currently included in this promo.

The main item that’s been a constant in my outfits is the Wide-Leg Cropped Jean in both the Lowry Wash and the Odell Wash. I absolutely LOVE these jeans. They are not too wide-leg but feel more like a Boyfriend Fit. I reviewed the Odell Wash here and have two pair of them, having paid $16 for one of the pair during a 60% off promo. Since I loved them so much I wanted a pair that weren’t distressed but still casual so I ordered the Lowry Wash and have rotated them with the two other pair.

I also recently purchased the Thurston Wash and they fit a little more snug and are a little longer than my other pairs. Alas, those were Final Sale so I’ll have to make them work.


I’ve been wearing the jeans with Silk Blouses like the Silk Twill Shell in Jungle Print, the Silk Blouse in Cobalt Leopard and an old-school-Crew favorite of mine, the Indigo Silk Blouse. The Odell Wash in show below. 

This is probably my favorite look so far. I can’t wait to add the Factory Wool Blazer over this when it gets a little cooler around here. I paired my new favorite blouse, the Collection Ruffle Pintuck Heart Dot Blouse (found on ebay) with the Lowry Wash, my TB Kerrington Mini Square Tote and some Louboutin Heels.

I don’t have any intention of taking these to be hemmed as I wear them rolled up a few times instead. I ordered a second pair of the Lowry Wash bringing my total to 5 pairs of the Wide-Leg Cropped Jean. They come in White as well but I don’t wear my other pair of white jeans enough to buy a second pair that I may not wear.

Skinny jeans have been tossed to the back of the closet for now!

Have a Great Day!

If you follow me on Instagram, you’ve seen this outfit already but I wanted to share the details with all of you. I have been wearing shorts all Summer long and am ready for long pants. I’ve been testing the waters with wearing jeans topped with a sleeveless top and that seems to be keeping me cool.

I really love the Carrie Cami in Watercolor Floral. I think the colors in it complement my skin tone well and they really pop when worn with white. The sandals are from J Crew and I love the color. They are some of my favorites though I don’t wear them enough.
This Navy short-sleeve pocket cardigan is from J Crew of yore; maybe 2008? I really love it and wish they would bring this back. The Factory had them about three years ago and I only grabbed one, in White. I thought they’d keep offering them but they haven’t been back since. I keep my hopes up during each new release, especially in Spring.
~ Cropped Skinny Jean, Tory Burch ~
~ Short-Sleeve Cotton Cardigan, old J Crew (Loft, Yoox) ~
~ Olympia Sandals, J Crew (Schutz, Fringe, Nine West) ~
I was pretty comfortable in this outfit for the evening. The sweater was so lightweight I barely noticed I had it on.
Hope everyone is having a Great Day!

I tried the Sunday Slim Chinos on last week and loved the feel of them. They feel like I’ve already washed them a thousand times. The fit is a little weird. There was only a size 6 as the biggest size in the Baked Terracotta. I tried them on and they fit. They are just a tiny bit snug but from current experience and the reviews online, they do stretch some. The size 8 would have stretched out way too much. I usually wear a size 8 in pants so I recommend you size down one. They come in Petite and Tall as well as Metallic Trim and Painted. Really???

I wanted to share with you how I recently styled the Sunday Slim Chinos for both day and night. The Perfect Shirt in Linen is one of my favorites and I had to replace the white one I had from a few years ago that got a hole in the shoulder. I use it now for a swim cover-up when we have guests over. I added my Tory Burch Tortoise Thora Sandals that I bought several years ago. I wore my Thora Sandals constantly every Summer, until I found my current Birks. I rolled these three times but may get them hemmed to regular length so the cuff doesn’t look so bulky.

 I swapped my Thora’s for the Factory Isabelle Raffia Pumps and added the Tortoise Flower Necklace to meet Husband for dinner that evening. Super easy swap and I still look nicely put together.
And I wanted to share with you my new sunglasses from Loft – the Ombre Retro Sunglasses. I wear my sunglasses daily and needed a new pair. I found these for $16 at the Loft a few weeks ago and love them. They are just the right amount of dark and both the frames and lenses go from dark to clear.
Sadly, the Sunday Slim Chinos are not included in the current J Crew promo of 30% off your purchase over $125. I do plan on getting at least one more pair but am just deciding on a color.

Have you tried the Sunday Slim Chino?

This was my going-to-the-dentist outfit yesterday. The Toothpick in Coated Denim are from last year and the coating has washed off. They are now just regular black jeans. I don’t wear a whole lot of black so this is the first time I’ve worn these since last January.

This Hugo Guinness sweater is really one of my favorites of the Hugo Guinness for J Crew. It just seems like the right sweater for layering anything under it. This and the Bliss Sweater are now 40% off with SHOPNOW. I finally ordered a few things today after filling up and watching what disappeared over the last few days.

Though it wasn’t on sale, I bought the Cotton Cable Sweater in Ivory. I’m planning on using it to transition to the Spring. I immediately imagined my Blythe Blouse in Polka Dot under the Cashmere Pinstripe Sweater in Grey/Black. I keep reaching for my Fair Isle Abstract Sweater that I decided to get the scarf.

If you missed my post from Sunday, I’m hosting a Give-away. If you haven’t entered, please do so in the comments of that post before this Sunday, at noon. I can’t wait to find out who the TWO lucky winners are!
Have a Great Day!

I had planned on seeing my niece play in a basketball tournament on Saturday but it was cancelled at the last minute due to the weather. I ended up running a few errands instead and then doing a little closet cleaning.The Tippi Houndstooth Sweater is such a pretty color. I forget that the Tippi is not a long-sleeve sweater so I had a little more cuff from my Polka-Dot Blythe Blouse {similar} exposed than I originally wanted. The Factory version of the sweater doesn’t have the Houndstooth shoulder patch but is still pretty.

I put tights under my trusty Pilcro Stet Ankle Jeans to be a little warmer during the day. I wanted to wear my Quinn Booties but since it was raining I didn’t want to mess up the suede. I use this spray but I still prefer not to wear my suede boots in wet weather. The Studded Strap Booties are a great pair of booties for wet weather. The sole is rubber so it grips the ground a little better.

In Wendy’s post yesterday, she posed the question “What ouftit would you wear every day?” I know in Winter and Spring, this outfit is probably what I would pick. I would switch out the heeled booties for my Cece’s but this is an outfit I am definitely comfortable in daily.

Have a Great Day!
