J Crew Resort/Spring 2012 Reviews

A lovely little J Crew box came Monday from my favorite brown Sancho. A few items that I didn’t mind paying full price for and a non-final sale sweater.

Jardin Skirt – Tropical Cove, 8 – I knew I was going to get this skirt in this color, it was just a matter of when. The Jardin Skirt is one of my favorites from 2011 and this color of blue is so lovely, I can’t seem to get enough of it, as you’ll see below.

9″ Chino Short – Bright Green, 8 – I always get at least one of the new colors of the 9″ or Bermuda shorts each year. This is the same color as the Boardwalk Cargo Short from last year. Such a pretty green and I quite like it with my dots I wore Monday.

French Dove Graphic Tee – Casablanca Blue, M – Again, my new favorite blue color. This has an embroidered red heart at the bottom of the tee.

Fisherman Sweater – Byzantine Blue, M – I have this in Beechwood from 2011 and love it. I hope this color is in my store because though the Medium fits, I would like to try the Small. I did get this with the 30% off, since it was moved to a promo price of $78 last week. You can now get it with the 40% off, since it is still on promo. It was removed from promo this morning. Hope some of you were able to get it yesterday.

Have you tried any of these items?

    First, thank you for posting the Feb catalog pictues. I was unable to comment on that post for some reason.

    I love all the blues you picked out! I was tempted by the fisherman sweater in blue since it is only on promo, not fs, but I hadn't seen it in person before. I love how it looks on you. Now you've got me doubting what size to order. Do you think the cotton will stretch out?

      I have the Beechwood in a Small. It fits slim on me but that is because my normal top size is a Medium. The Small was tight through the arms and fitted through the body/waist. The Medium is just a little longer in the arms and length. I don't think this will stretch too much because it feels tightly woven. I'd get your regular size in tops.

    Thanks for the feedback Audrey. Unfortunately, JC took it off promo this morning so it no longer qualifies for the 40% off. Their loss, I'm not buying now!

    I love that color on you. Seeing all these spring items it keeping me from ordering final sale dregs.

    I love that striped skirt on you, very chic. The blue linen tee is waiting for me at home so I'm glad to see that you love the color, the tee is so cute. I first tried the summerweight bermudas last year and they are fabulous. That green is amazing, but I'll have to go for the violet.

    Thanks for sharing the photos and reviews. Always appreciated.

    Ok, fit twin…I've been looking. I'm absolutely sure of it. You're losing weight. You look fantastic.

    Love those particular blues & greens together. What's the 2nd, striped skirt?

      Thanks! I'm glad you can tell because I can't. I was beginning to think getting my butt kicked by Jillian Michaels every day wasn't working. It's also helped that Husband has been in India for 2 weeks so I've been eating in and better.

      The skirt is from The Loft, Colorblock Stripe Skirt. I reviewed it in my previous post. http://audreybella.blogspot.com/2012/01/loft-reviews.html

    Love it all on you! The skirt, sweater and tee are in my sights. I must have that Loft skirt as well (super cute things there, thanks for those great reviews!). I"m going there tomorrow to check it out.

    ShopWithM – Can't wait to see what you try on. If you see the striped skirt I hope you try it on/review it. I'm hoping the size 4 I bought was not a fluke on sizing and that it does run one size small.

    The skirt, short and shirt are cute but the sweater is the best for me.

    Thanks for your reviews. I'm definitely going to pick up the green shorts (I can't wait for Summer) and the blue tee when they hit sale. Thanks!

    Love your blog! I recently started following you, and I love your outfit selections! I am glad to find someone that blogs and wears a similar size as myself (6/8). Thanks!

    I'm trying to narrow down the colors I want in the chino shorts – they are all super-saturated bright and I want most of them!
