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?

J Crew’s new promo, through Tuesday, April 14, is 25% off with SHOPNOW. There seem to be a few exclusions like Collection and third-party brands. I had placed and order as well as shopped in-store during the 25/30% off promo last week.

~ Perfect Shirt in Linen, White, size 8 ~
I have several of these in various colors. My favorites that I wear consistently are the Navy and White. At the end of last Summer I found a hole at the shoulder on my White shirt so I needed a new one. I’ll keep the other for a pool cover-up. That one is an 8 Petite and I may have caused the hole since it was getting a little snug in the shoulders. This new one is a size 8 and fits well. The white is very bright, maybe because it’s new. These really are a perfect Summer staple for me as I usually feel cooler in this shirt than a tee.  

~ Metallic Linen Boyfriend Tee, Small ~

This just fit in the arms and might actually be a little snug. That’s me and not necessarily the shirt itself. I’d do better in a Medium just for a little more room in the arms, especially with that dropped shoulder. I wasn’t really thrilled with this overall but I will try the Medium on, if it’s in-store. I have the Metallic Linen V-Neck Sweater that I prefer to this tee. 
~ Pull-on Short in Falling Flowers, Classic Ivory, size 8 ~
These were probably my favorite from the roll-out and though I’ve tried on the Factory Pull-On Shorts before and returned or passed on them, I really liked this Retail version. The size 8 fit well and though the inseam is 2 1/2 inches, you can drop the waistband to your hips for a little longer look. I really like the look of these and will probably get quite a bit of wear out of them this Summer. 

Lastly is my Easter Sunday outfit. I wasn’t thrilled with the colors of the Stacked Sequin Shell but I did like the White/Grey of the Stacked Sequin Sweater. I bought a Small since the sweater looked really big in the Medium. It’s a nice fit throughout and stretch some too. The sweater is sheer so a nude bra or cami is needed. The Vintage Apricot color of the 4″ Chino Short is a perfect match to the sweater as well, as one of the sequins is the same color. I threw on a nude cami underneath and was pretty cool all day until the Cascarone fight. This is me and Husband right before we were smashed again.
