J Crew: Indigo Vintage Cotton V-Neck Tee, Patio Pant

J Crew has a new promo that started today and runs through Sunday. Take 25% off $100 or 30% off $200 with code SHOPMORE. If you want to see what I’m considering, I’ve updated my August picks over on the side-bar –>. One of the items I included is the Indigo Vintage Cotton V-Neck Tee. The Indigo Tee actually comes in a variety of necklines as well as stripes and either short- or long-sleeve.

My store only had the V-Neck available. I thought I would have preferred the crewneck but once on, I really liked it. I wanted this to fit well and not very loose so the Small is the perfect fit to achieve that. The Vintage Cotton Tee is so very comfortable and I love the Indigo color. I would/will buy a long-sleeve version.
~ Patio Pant, Navy, size 6 ~

I’ve been waiting to try the Patio Pant since they first arrived in April/May. But my store never received them and they sold old very quickly online. They are back in stock in several colors. I like the comfort level of these, cotton with stretch, and the size 6 fits ok. If they came in petite I would prefer the 8 Petite. The inseam claims to be 25-inches but they run just slightly cropped wearing heels on my 5’2″ frame. Which is good because I would be lazy about getting them hemmed to the perfect length. I think the size 8 would be a better fit for the length to be just at the floor and to have a little room in the hips and thighs without them being too loose. If you do vary in pants size like I do, I would get your larger size. Especially, if you are hippy like me.

Overall, I liked both of these items and I did buy the Indigo V-Neck Tee. I am passing on the pants since I don’t have anywhere I would wear them regularly.
