J Crew: Firework Floral Short, Firework Floral Skirt, Sleeveless Sequin Firework Floral Top

The Firework Floral items are all from the February release. One of my original pick was the Sleeveless Sequin Top. My store had several more items in the print for me to try on as well.

This was a nice fit, not pulling across the chest or anything. I like the rounded hem on it, much better than the straight hems. The sequins are a nice touch but I overall I wasn’t a huge fan of the top in person. Especially after seeing the red background on the next two items. 

I liked the feel of the material on this skirt. It’s cotton in a thick twill. It’s not super thick but good enough for Spring but maybe a little warm for Summer. I like the red background more than the white. It seems to make the blue in the pattern pop. The size 8 was a decent fit to a little snug in the waist. That’s my extra baggage doing that and not the skirt…take your normal size. 

At 18 inches it hits at just above the knee on me.

Back zip…booo…

You can see the two prints together here. Though I like the red/white-ivory/blue of the top, the skirt just looks so much prettier, IMO. 
~ Firework Floral Short, Dark Cognac, size 8 ~
The material on these shorts feel like the Pleated Crepe Short from last year. They are a little bunchy in the front but the waist fits me fine. These will be great for a date night in the Summer. A little dressy but still keeping you cool. 

If I had to choose I would probably get the short. We have more shorts-weather days than any other type of day. These really would be great for date night with the Hubby.
Are you watching the Oscars? I have my wine, Milk Duds and Pizza all ready tonight. 
Have a Great Evening!
