After a quick stop to the room to drop off my bag, I settled on El Jardin Tequila Bar & Restaurant for lunch. The weather was gorgeous and perfect for outdoor seating (all they have). Mango was the fruit choice of the day as I ordered a yummy Chile Mango Margarita and the Baja Fish Tacos with a Mango Salsa and Avocado Sauce.
The real deal…no Photoshopping these images.
I was so tempted to order another Margarita but you would have had to pick me up off the floor. Delicious with a nice kick to it, due to the Chile, but, hello Tequila.
After lunch I stopped by J Crew in Westfield Valley Fair Mall across the street and picked up this versatile necklace.
I cannot stop wearing it. It just seems to go with everything, even my Apple Print Tippi Sweater I wore yesterday. It’s almost becoming second nature to grab this necklace to wear with whatever I have on. The receipt stated this was the Dorado Necklace. I have no idea if this will show up online Wednesday or if this is in-store only. My VPS said they had it for about two seconds before they were sold out.
Then I was off to Anthropologie, as Husband and I had stopped in Kate Spade the day before. I was able to find a few items to try on. They had quite a few party dresses and items out already.
Guimauve Top, Sz Medium – This fit well but I’d like to try a Small to be sure. This was really cozy on and would look great with some dark jeans and heels. Wishlisted.
Beaded Poeme Top, Sz 6, Ivory – A great little top for Holiday parties but definitely needs a cami underneath. It also comes in Pink. It’s also a little heavy due to the beading. I vary between a 6 and 8 in tops and felt this was a great fit. Wishlisted
Emperor Kiss Sweater, Medium – Oh this is such a super cute sweater. I doubt it will make it to sale. This would fit in well with all the black and gray I’ve been wearing lately. Wishlisted
, Sz 6 – This was a perfect fit and beautiful for the upcoming Holidays. I don’t have a need for it but would love to find one. Wishlisted
Violante Dress, Sz Medium – This is another dress that would be great for any Holiday dinners. The Medium fit a little loose in the bust so if I were to get this I would like to try a Small or Medium Petite to see if that works any better. Wishlisted
Emerald Founce Skirt
, Sz 8 – I was excited to try this skirt on as I loved the color. Sadly this skirt was all kinds of wrong. The waist was a little loose, the hips were really tight and the flounce I just didn’t like on me. Pass
Odette Skirt, Medium/Small Petite/XS – This skirt was right in front of the store on a display. I walked around twice before I actually found it and grabbed a Medium to try on. That is the larger pic of the three and it was loose in the hips and too long. The back is pleated on this sweater skirt with a felted wool swan. I asked the SA for a Small and she brought a Small Petite. It’s still a little big on me so I sized to an Xtra Small. Though I was Spanxing it that day, the XS was the best fit. I can’t explain why. This was also after lunch too.
I purchased the Odette Skirt but may return it as I don’t really have a great need for it. I do have plenty of Cashmere sweaters in various colors to go with the skirt as well as plenty of shoe options but it doesn’t fit in to my day-to-day life.
What do you think of these items? Anything catch your eye?
Have a Great Day!
