More J Crew Sale Goodies

I mentioned in this post that I bought some items on sale and using a discount code from J Crew. They arrived yesterday and I’m pretty happy with my purchases.

Surf Tweed Charter Skirt – I have this in the Linen in the Light Citron color. I sized up and still love the fit. A little bit looser and lower on the hip, but not a whole lot. 

Coral Reef Tank in Ivory – I wish this had been available in the Olive Green when I bought this. I don’t really need another white cami. But, it is very pretty and will go with several skirts in my closet.

Not a tucker-inner…There are two dangle-y ribbons on the side. 

Torque Moto Cardigan in Navy – I really like this cardi. I can’t wear it now – I was sweating bullets just this morning when taking the pics – but I can’t wait until the first cool breeze.

Sequin Starland Tank in Neon Quartz – I wanted to really like this cami/tank. Sadly, the stupid side zipper won out. It can’t be tucked in at all, unless I wear some Spanx and tuck it into those. I had so many options for this tank. 🙁

Yucky (right side) side zipper

So that one is going back. I’ll take it to the store and maybe they will have something I like. Other than the Silk Ripple Dress in Navy there’s nothing I really care for in the new arrivals (at full price, of course).

Here’s what I’m wearing today.

Shirt: J Crew Gingham in Purple 
Shorts: J Crew Bermuda (2009)
Shoes: Nada (It’s summer.)

Have a great day!!

    Ooh, I wish the starland had worked for you. 🙂 I love the tank, but if the side zipper does that, then definitely return. I actually had to return the original one I bought because the sequins were too loose. The second (and cheaper) one was much much better. LOL.

    I also love that charter skirt. Perfection on you.

    I just got the moto cardigan in the pinkish color from a JCA yesterday. I think I like it, but I was hoping Polyvore would provide some styling inspiration. Uhh… nope. How are you planning on wearing yours?

    oh wow. you must have been hot in that sweater! i was sweating just looking at the pic! But come fall, how perfect!

    I hate those darn side zippers! Don't the designers realize what they do to the garment!??!

    Cute casual outfit. Never thought much of the coral reef tank, but it's pretty on you 🙂

    What a shame about the starland tank, it is just so pretty! My favorites are the navy sweater and the skirt.
