Friday we finally had some sunshine, even though it was still cold. I was so tired of wearing jeans and fleece and thick sweaters and sweatshirts. So I saw the sun shining and the blue skies and decided to dress up for the day.
Here’s the Polyvore
Here’s the IRL.
So I didn’t like the way the Elizabeth felt with the tee over it. I think maybe a Perfect Fit tee would have been better or no tee at all. Also, since I wore tights the skirt kept bunching and riding up. I should have worn a slip so it would lay better.
I did go by J Crew to return/exchange two pieces of jewelry and they loved that I was wearing all J Crew, including two new arrivals and using the canvas tote bag. I also went in to try on the Unagi, the Neapolitan and the Double-Stretch Serge Pencil Skirt. OMG! I loved them all. I did get the Unagi which is a great fit in my normal size 6. I tried them all in a 6 and I think I probably could have sized down in the Serge to a 4.
One of the managers/SAs saw me pulling items to try on and said, “We got a new skirt in. You’re going to love it.” And he ran to the back to get it. Apparently they were still pulling things out of boxes. He brought it out and it is this gorgeous lime/yellow/green and in a linen/silk blend.
It’s a Linen blend and the tag says FCI for the color…Something Citron?? I tried on the 6 and loved it. It fits like the Terra Paisley or Deco Shirred Skirts. I’m thinking a white button down, with rolled sleeves and this scarf (or something similar).
So I ended up exchanging the two necklaces for the two skirts. I didn’t even ask when the rest of the new arrivals would be out. I was too excited about my skirts.
