Yay! Not only are the J Crew Fall arrivals now in store but I received my rewards card today too!

I’ll post better pics of what I purchased along with prices later this evening.
Since hubby was still recovering from surgery he couldn’t take me to lunch or dinner for my birthday. That didn’t stop me though. The boy and I went to Mariposa Cafe at Neiman’s and then I picked up dinner from PF Chang’s. For lunch (and a little NM shopping) I wore my Jakarta mini and my Rosette Tee with my Corso Como Espadrilles. I think the Rosette’s and the swirly Jakarta print were a good fit together. You tell me if it went together. (I really need to do Polyvore.)
I finished the Birthday off with cake and my favorite wine, Santa Margherita Pino Grigio. And I saw the new fawns. They are over a week old and have grown a lot. They were half this size last week. (Sorry for the crappy image but when I went outside the momma and friends were 5 feet from me wanting food.)
They are still cuties.
My son and I had a “date” night and went to see Wicked. I LOVED it! I didn’t want it to end and wanted to see it again right away. It was a great show and the boy and I had a great time. The boy looked so handsome too. He indulged me which I very much appreciate.
I Jcrew’d it out for the show.
J Crew Twisted slub V-neck Tee
J Crew Delfine Pencil Skirt (love this!)
J Crew Men’s English Leather Equestrian Belt
Banana Republic Daisy Ring
J Crew Dangling gold Disc Necklace
J Crew Crystal Chain Necklace
Christian Louboutin Wall Street Mary Jane’s (I got these for a STEAL!)
I thought I’d look too “nude” or “brown” but the skirt really does make the whole outfit. And the shoes…oh how I love Christian Louboutin. I lusted after these shoes when they came out but the price tag was way too high. Then I walked into NM last week and there they were…on the SALE rack…the last pair…IN MY SIZE. How much better could it get? How about an extra 25% off starting the next day and they’d hold the shoes for me?!?! My lust turned to love. I felt like Wilma and Betty saying “CHARGE IT!”. (Anyone remember that episode or am I aging myself?) Ha Ha…
I was so happy. It was my birthday treat. I get one every year. (Last year I bought the Coach Francesca bag in Teal. It’s so beautiful.) Save up for it and everything. But I expected to pay/spend more so I bought a great pair of chocolate ballerina C/L flats that were on sale too. HAPPY BIRTHDAY TO ME…
Life IS short…Buy the shoes (especially when they are on SALE!)
I wore some of my new J Crew stuff last week to get my haircut. I paired it with my new Christian Louboutin SKY-HIGH espadrilles. I thought for sure I’d break an ankle or worse but they were actually quite comfortable. And I got them on sale…woo hoo!
Perfect Denim Shirt, Jakarta Shorts, J Crew Men’s belt, Christian Louboutin espadrilles

They looked really good with the outfit. I didn’t really have any cute brown flat sandals (surprise!) to go with it. I’ll wait until after the summer to see if I still want/need them and then they’ll be on sale!
Side-view of haircut…I LOVE IT! My stylist is awesome and always funks it up differently each time. Although, I can’t seem to style it the EXACT same way.
It’s hot over here in Texas, so stay cool people.
