I haven’t done an OOTD in a while but the Jardin skirt is too pretty to have it miss out on any blogger love. I tried to re-create this image from the August Catalog for a hot summer day.

Skirt: J Crew Jardin Skirt, Rich Purple
Flats: Joley Peep-Toe in Pink/Blush

Sammy decided he was in a hurry and couldn’t wait for me to take the picture.

Well, here’s what he was in a hurry to do. I have no idea what he was doing exactly but it seems I interrupted him.

Have a Great Day!

I’ve been searching for this guy for a couple of years.  I found his Crewlet sister back in 2009. I couldn’t believe my luck when I did a search on ebay and found him!

Upon closer inspection of the original, he also has a bow, just not pink. But I love him anyway.
Now, if I could just find these.

So I really bit hard on the latest ‘MUSTSHOP’ promo at J Crew – take 40% off sale and Final Sale items and Free Shipping on $100 or more.

Cashmere Gloves$48 $29.99 $17.99
I bought these in every color available for Christmas gifts next year.

Convertible Jeweled Gloves$198 $99.99 $59.99
I’ve been eyeing these for a while. 
Not being able to find my Coach gloves this week was a good reason to buy new gloves.

Pearl Cobblestone Bracelet$78 $69.99 $41.99
I really wanted the Olive Moss but this is such a unique dress the Dark Charcoal is just fine. Once I saw it pop back I was not about to let it get away from me again.
See it on One Fashionista Diva – doesn’t she look gorgeous?
Short Chalet Shearling Boots in Desert Brown – $198 $150 $89.99
Love that these were a pop-back. 
I have been wanting some “wear-out-of-the-house” cozy, Ugg-type boots. I think these will do.

Lindy Leather Platform Peep-Toes$265 $149.99 $89.99
I plan on wearing these with several of last year’s pencil skirts (Pastiche, Contrast Pencil Skirt, Turkish Delight, Impressionist Pencil Skirt).
Vintage Cotton Ruffle Shirt – $45 $19.99 $11.99
I bought the white a few weeks ago in the B&M. It’s a little shear but a great layering tee with some detail. 
I bought the Bright Dahlia and the Olive Moss.

Cashmere Crewneck Tee – $145 $99 $59.99
I have a few of these in the short-sleeved version and love them.
They have been very versatile, with jeans and skirts. 

Have a great day!

This post was totally inspired by Ginger Girl who also found some great items. Check out her picks here.

I popped in to J Crew over the weekend and found a few things I liked.

New cardigan that’s not online
Style #32329, Color HMO-Heather Moss

Forgot a belt? Just adjust the double zipper pull.

And the new Oxford Shoe Tee
Style #31251

I’ll be travelling during the rest of the week so I’ll have some OOTDs to share this weekend.

Have a great week.

I want to apologize. I have not been in the mood for blogging. September always seems to be the one month I can’t get it together and everything just sucks. But we’re half-way through, right? So forgive me if I don’t finish out the month strong. Ok?

Here’s what I recently purchased when “attempting” to make some returns at J Crew. You all know how that goes right? Especially on “new roll-out” day?

I returned these.

(I returned this because I love my Alma Mater blazer from Anthropologie. I also recently purchased the J Crew Outlet version of the Eden blazer in Iris and have the Wool Schoolboy Blazer in Redwood that I have yet to wear.)

(I bought this in Mink also and kept that one. $59.99 in store)

And brought home these.

Bici Tee (very cute, spokes are sequined)

Then I stopped by Ann Taylor to see if they had the matching belt to my Perfect Pumps in Porcini. They did.

And I also bought the Tiered Shirt with Grosgrain Trim in Smokey Mauve Yarn to get 25% off. I really wanted another pair of their Perfect Pumps but don’t need them so I held off.

Have a great day!

P.S. – I had a “mini-stop” at the J Crew Outlet on Sunday and saw they had the “Paris Tee” the “All Spice” Tee (from this post) and the Flower Sketch Tee in Olive Moss. All direct from the retail store and not an “outlet” version. I don’t recall pricing, sorry, but there was a % off all tees.
