J.Crew has a promo ending today where you “buy more, save more”. With code MOREISMORE you can take 25% off your purchase of $125 or more, or 30% off your purchase of $200 or more. I took advantage of this and ordered a few things to try on that my store did not have, whether it was item, size or color.
The sweater runs a little large and the Small seemed to fit best on me. Since this is a sweater the shoulders are stretchy and not tight. The material is a cotton crepe feeling more on the crepe than cotton side. It’s already too warm here to wear this sweater, unless I’m indoors all day. Still, it’s a really cute sweater and the shoulders stay put with movement.
~ Sailor Pant in Heavy Linen, Navy, size 8 ~
The linen doesn’t give too much so I went with the size 8. They are cute but also a mess. The sailor buttons are functional but you don’t want to use those because there is also a side-zip. Add to this a lace-up back you can use to cinch the pants around your waist for a better fit. The length is absolutely perfect full-length though it’s not meant to be. I don’t have a full-length linen pant and if these didn’t have the lace-up back I would have considered them.
~ Short-Sleeve Popover in Drapey Oxford, Ivory, size 6 ~
I have this popover in Chambray and Olive and love them. I wanted to see how drapey this ivory one was and it’s a little lighter weight making it a little cooler feeling. I realized I have another white sleeveless top I have yet to wear and always go for color in the Summer so this one was returned. Still it’s a nice dressier top than the regular Popover.
~ Perfect Shirt in Piece-Dyed Irish Linen, Black, size 8 ~
I needed a black linen shirt. I wear these regularly throughout the Summer. Surprisingly, the linen Perfect Shirts keep me just as cool as a tee. I had been wearing a size 10 in button-downs but have gone back down to my normal size 8. This is a good basic shirt for me.
~ Linen Bermuda Short, Spice/Black/Bright Flamingo, size 8 ~
I loved all the linen Bermuda shorts offerings from last year. I have every single color so and wore them all Summer long. That’s why it was an easy decision for me to get all three color offerings of this season’s version. I ordered a size 8, which fit TTS for me. The material doesn’t have much give but they still fit a little loose, which I prefer. My favorite color is the black and the Spice will be great through Fall.
I ordered the One-Shoulder Dress in Eyelet. If it fits well I may have to decide between it and the Sheath Dress in Fringe. I’ll share reviews once it come in! Don’t forget to use Ebates before ordering!!
