J Crew: Graphic Peony Top, Reese Pant in Graphic Peony

From the March roll-out, the Graphic Peony print surprised me IRL. I didn’t really take any notice of it online when it arrived but in-store, I loved it.

I originally tried on the size 4 and it just fit. With a tiny bit of weight loss and a non-padded bra it would have been a good fit. But since I buy-for-now-sizing, I tried on the size 6, which you see here. I love the stripes on the sleeves that contrast so nicely with the peony print on the body. The best part? It’s machine washable!

It covers those thick arms of mine!

These pants! Love them. The pants have the Peony print while the side is the stripe. The size 6 was a great fit. I think I would like to try the 8 Petite to get these cropped above the ankle. Right now the length is perfect, hitting right at the floor.  

The only thing I don’t like is that they are lined. It creates a little bunchiness in front. I think these would work great without the lining and I could wear them in the Summer too.

My own jumpsuit with both the top and pants.

I had a hard time deciding which to get but eventually chose the top. I can definitely wear it in the Summer and am already planning on wear it with white bottoms. I wish this print had come in swimwear. I would have bought a new bikini if it had.

What do you think of the Graphic Peony print?
