Done Wearing Jeans

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.

    We are so funny trying to figure out the color codes! My guess is Faded Citron?

    You look so cute in your outfit! I like it better with the grey tee. I usually only go two layers before claustrophobia sets in!

    The colors in the watercolor are so great for you.

    Does the new skirt w/the mysterious color code have pockets?

    We had a great time in San Antonio! We went to El Jarra (??) on Friday night and then the Gruene Dance Hall on Saturday night. I loved the dance hall and the live music!

    We were so tired of being inside today that we drove out and bought new pillows for our house! All this cold weather does is make me want to buy more things because I'm stuck inside my house all day and I keep finding things I "need" to have!

    I have to get out soon or I will be broke!

    Jess – Thank you! I bought it last summer at J Crew.

    Gigi – The skirt has front slant pockets. I guess once we figure out the actual color it can be added to your list. Kathy may have the best guess of Faded Citron.

    Sarah – How fun! I just got back from Gruene this evening. I've seen many a great band/singer at Gruene Hall – Lucinda Williams, Los Lonely Boys, Bob Schneider, Willie. I love that it doesn't matter how famous the singer/band, they all have to go through the front side door. And the hallway to the men's room – backstage! LOL! Glad you had fun!
