I’m off to jury duty in a little while but wanted to post a few pics of what I wore last week. I hope to post my court outfits by the weekend.

I couldn’t wait to wear my Double-Serge Stripe Pencil Skirt and was able to head in to the office on Wednesday last week. I paired it with my black cashmere tee and black suede Bronson Booties. I went sans tights only because it wasn’t a cold day. Necklaces are J Crew.

This was just a quick dinner outfit I wore on Friday.

J Crew Cashmere Tee in Matisse Blue –  These are just so easy to wear (and layer…see below).

This was to go see Black Swan Saturday night. After telling husband I never get to pick a movie when we go out he surprised us with tickets for Saturday night. And by us, I mean me and The Boy (Husband too, of course.) There was no right way to tell him that the movie wasn’t quite a teen-age boy kind of movie so I just encouraged Husband to watch the other trailers and decide for himself. We took The Boy anyway and he walked out of there saying it was a scary movie! and he was going to have nightmares. Funny that he thought of it that way. Oh, he also said he will never tell his friends he saw it, even if it was with his parents.

I purchased both the Matisse Blue and Rose Dust Cashmere Tees on final sale and was very happy with them. I am hoping to pair the Rose Dust with my Lolli pants soon. The Boutonniere Blazer has been a great staple I’ve been using as outerwear since I purchased it. It hadn’t been that cold for a real coat but that all changed this weekend. I will be able to use my new Italian Wool Blazecoat this week.

Now off to jury duty.

Have a great day.

I’ve been struggling with what I really want to buy during this 30% off promo at J Crew. I have been lusting over the Wool Origami Sheath Dress since it first popped up online.

But I have also been eyeing the Heidi Dress in Prince of Wales Wool. The two-tone really intrigued me. Online says it’s catalog and online only but my store had it along with the Wool Flannel.

So I decided to go to the store to try on the Heidi Dress. There are some new SAs and Personal Shoppers and there’s one girl who is so helpful. Each time I’ve been in and given her something to start a fitting room I find several outfits when I arrive, accessories included. Most of the time I’m not interested in the extra stuff due to time constraints and they are just not my style but I really appreciate the effort.

Anyway, I tried on the Heidi in a 6 and 8. The 6 was a perfect fit and the 8 was a little looser but still a good fit. The PS also brought me the Super 120s Petale’ Dress in Black. It was $49.99 in-store, plus the 30% off. I tried the 6 and it fit great. I didn’t even bother with the 8. It’s a shift dress with and I had the PS bring a belt. It totally change the shape of the dress. I loved it.

So here are the IRLs of the two dresses along with a few other things I bought online last week with the 25% off.

Double-Serge Stripe Pencil Skirt
Size 8 – Fits perfectly…I normally wear a 6 in JC Pencil Skirts. That size was sold out so I got the 8 and I’m glad I did. A 6 would have been returned.
Worn with JC Black Cashmere Tee
Flannery Peep-Toe Mary Janes
The material, it’s like a quilt, which I’m not a big fan of, but this skirt is lovely.
And…Merry Christmas to me.
Buena Notte Bag – There were two in-store, returns, and it is gorgeous. Sammy, the cat, ruined my dressy black clutch. I think this will do nicely as a great substitute.

I hope the pics helped if you’re still deciding on any items.

Have a great evening.
