J Crew: Lace-Stripe Skirt, Grotto Pendant Necklace, Collection Antique Floral Shorts, Collection Silk Foulard Shorts

Wanting to try a few more shorts for Summer as well as the Lace Stripe Skirt in Strawberry Rose I ordered during the SHOPNOW.

Lace Stripe Skirt in Strawberry Rose – I previously tried on both the size 6 & 8 in-store and decided on the size 6.

The color is just as I expected and not too pink. It’s more Coral-Pink and very pretty. The pockets are always a nice feature.
Grotto Pendant Necklace will look great with the Silk Crepe Maxidress in Brilliant Blueberry.
Collection Antique Floral Shorts – I liked the print of the Antique Floral Skirt but new I wouldn’t wear it but once or twice before selling it so I chose to try the shorts. I have the print in the Merino Silk-Panel Sweater and love it! These fit well in my normal Shorts size 8. These are not lined and are a Cotton-Silk blend. 

Collection Silk Foulard Shorts – Again, I love this Foulard print in the Minnie Pants I have so I wanted to see the shorts in person. I was hoping they weren’t too delicate of a silk and I was right. They are lined and are very comfortable. My size 8 seemed loose until I sat down. Sizing to a 6 would cause pulling across the hips so I would stick with your normal size. 
So here’s where it gets a little odd. The button goes through two holes and then hooks, making an asymmetrical drape in the front. There is no other zipper or buttons on the shorts.
