I’m trying really hard to shop my closet as best I can. I haven’t worn the Potpourri Mini since Spring and warm weather arrived and the Tiered Silk Cami in Papaya has been sitting in my closet waiting patiently for the tags to come off. I don’t have any thing other than work (from home) today but this isn’t too much for just around the house.

When this top first showed up in stores I didn’t like the fit. The tiers looked to add extra weight but I did try on the 8 only. I didn’t jump on the bandwagon until two months ago when I saw how great yogagirl looked in one of hers. So then I stalked pop-backs and ebay not really knowing my size. Turns out the 8 is too big, the 6 is loose but fits but I can also wear the size 4 and 2. How’s that for vanity sizing? I was able to get the Papaya, Light Berry, Antique Stone and the Toffee in those random sizes. I’d love the Deep Violet/Purple yogagirl is wearing but I am satisfied with the ones I have. And the yellow is so bright and pretty too!

Blouse: J Crew Silk Tiered Cami
Skirt: J Crew Potpourri Mini
Shoes: Target Merona Essie Espadrilles (just like the J Crew Caribe)
A pretty good match.
Here’s the J Crew Trevi Shell that I changed into for the NJHS Induction Ceremony. I didn’t wear the little belt it comes with.

It’s taking all my will power to NOT go to Anthropologie to see their sale items. And J Crew should have more new arrivals in-store this week. ACK! Hopefully, the new outdoor furniture we are getting this week should be enough to satisfy my shopping cravings.

Enjoy your day!

Sorry I haven’t been posting. My week got a little better, then it got worse. My poor sweet little Bella is having back surgery today. She has a ruptured disc and has been in so much pain. She stayed at the vet hospital last night and will be there over the weekend. She looked so sad when we left her yesterday. But when she comes home she’ll get lots of “mommy-loving” while she recuperates. I may even let Husband make bacon as a treat for her.

Here she is with her “brother” Gus.

The sun is coming out today so here’s an OOTD using my Watercolor Potpourri mini from J Crew.

An option with wedges…
Here’s what I wore for St. Patrick’s Day. Husband and The Boy both wore green on their boxers, not realizing it until later and after they got pinched. I told them if you couldn’t see it that it didn’t count.
I think most people who purchased this top from the Liberty of London for Target wore it on Wednesday.
I didn’t put this back on but this is the top part of what I wore to the office on Tuesday. I love the Burnished Olive Jackie with the Rose Vines Shirt. I think it looks great together.
Have a great weekend. Husband says he’s taking me shopping today. I haven’t been to J Crew to see the New Arrivals so he’s in for a treat/surprise/shock to see me in action.

Friday we finally had some sunshine, even though it was still cold. I was so tired of wearing jeans and fleece and thick sweaters and sweatshirts. So I saw the sun shining and the blue skies and decided to dress up for the day.

Here’s the Polyvore

Here’s the IRL.

And here’s what I really wore.

Um…yeah…I have my gray tee on backwards. It went over my head the right way. Not sure what happened.

So I didn’t like the way the Elizabeth felt with the tee over it. I think maybe a Perfect Fit tee would have been better or no tee at all. Also, since I wore tights the skirt kept bunching and riding up. I should have worn a slip so it would lay better.

I did go by J Crew to return/exchange two pieces of jewelry and they loved that I was wearing all J Crew, including two new arrivals and using the canvas tote bag. I also went in to try on the Unagi, the Neapolitan and the Double-Stretch Serge Pencil Skirt. OMG! I loved them all. I did get the Unagi which is a great fit in my normal size 6. I tried them all in a 6 and I think I probably could have sized down in the Serge to a 4.

One of the managers/SAs saw me pulling items to try on and said, “We got a new skirt in. You’re going to love it.” And he ran to the back to get it. Apparently they were still pulling things out of boxes. He brought it out and it is this gorgeous lime/yellow/green and in a linen/silk blend.

It’s a Linen blend and the tag says FCI for the color…Something Citron?? I tried on the 6 and loved it. It fits like the Terra Paisley or Deco Shirred Skirts. I’m thinking a white button down, with rolled sleeves and this scarf (or something similar).

So I ended up exchanging the two necklaces for the two skirts. I didn’t even ask when the rest of the new arrivals would be out. I was too excited about my skirts.
