Another office visit and a high school prep day are good reasons to dress up.

Monday I headed into the office again and chose the Ink Blossom Pencil Skirt. I honestly love J Crew pencil skirts. They are so flattering. I originally thought of wearing the Kelsey Ruffle cami with this skirt and even took a picture to debate it.

What do you think? 

I eventually decided on being a little less bold and more match-y.

Cami: J Crew Outlet
Skirt: J Crew – Ink Blossom Pencil Skirt
Shoes: Ann Taylor Perfect Pump in Porcini 

LOVE THESE SHOES. Lasted a 10-hour day and not a smidge of pain.

Here’s what I wore today for The Boy’s Prep Day at high school. Yay for me! I didn’t cry.

Dress: J Crew Bazaar Print Tunic Dress
Shoes: Christian Louboutin Hola Flat

Of course, since I went in to the office I had to stop by the J’Crewlet. I know I just went two weeks ago but you never know what new items could show up. I did a quick scan and saw nothing new. The Eden Corduroy Blazer was on sale for $59.50.

Then I saw this necklace on the way out. They just came in over the weekend. During the summer I saw this necklace in the B&M and wanted it so badly but I just couldn’t justify the cost. So when I saw this for $49.50 AND 30% off jewelry, I didn’t hesitate to march right up to the register and buy it.

Necklace: J Crew Outlet (similar to Pearl Twisted Hammock)
Style #27531
$49.50 + 30% off

This is the same necklace but in natural that I found at the outlet before Christmas, in the sale section. It was $19.99 plus 20% off sale items.

Pretty pearls…

Have a great evening!

Yes, I got a haircut over the weekend and LOVE IT! I’m going to “attempt” to start growing it out but it’s hard when I get cuts like this that make me happy.

I meant to post this last week about the “Mauve” Carnation Cluster Tee and the “Pumpkin” Merino Swirly Ruffle Cardigan.

Carnation Cluster Tee – Apparently the “Mauve”/Pink-y color is only in stores. I tossed the tag so I don’t have the actual color or style #. I will say that I bought a size Small as opposed to a Medium. The Medium ran really long, almost tunic-like, but the Small did fit better and wasn’t tight like most Small’s are on me.

I bought the Navy also but I’m returning it. I like this color, and really, how many similar tees do I need?

Merino Swirly Ruffle Cardigan – This is not online and the tag says HO 09 (Holiday 09). It’s 100% Merino Wool and comes in black and some other colors that I can’t remember. This color says CSP and retails for $98. I can’t find this color on Gigi’s list so it must be new. It’s pumpkin to me and such a fall color. I love it.

I tried it on with the Kelsey ruffle top, which I do not like. But I like the purple and pumpkin color combination.

J Crew says I have less than $100 to get a reward card. I’ve been eyeing these items.
Cashmere Bouquet Cardigan – $250 (I don’t know why but this is so pretty to me. I’m sure I’ll get sick of the “bouquets”.)
Mini Patent Campo Bag in Black Plum – $228 (Love this color!)
Terra Paisley Mini – $98 (Practical and will work well with tights and some of the boots I have.)

I have until Wednesday to decide.
