Here’s the J Crew Casbah Dress. This is my new favorite print and I love the green jewel tones.

Size 8

It is a side zip and has and extra zip for the bust paneling. I’ll try to get a shot of it later.  I tried a belt right under the bust but it didn’t look great, IMO. There is pleating right under the center of the bust which gives it that “float away from the body” look as well as the “I may be pregnant” look. It will be good when hiding “food babies” too.

I also bought the scarf in this print. Even though it’s wool it is very lightweight and sheer/thin. Texas seems to have skipped Spring and jumped right into Summer (92 today!) so I may not have a chance to wear this outside until next Fall.

This is what I wore today. It’s our wedding anniversary and Husband and I spent the day together by having breakfast, getting our free coffee, and getting massages, facials and pedicures. Here’s the new Anthropologie Apothecary Skirt. There are so many colors in this print but they all go well together. Also, this buttons down the front, just like the J Crew Dorrie Skirt. While at Anthropologie last night I spotted and met Molly, from AnthroMollogies! It was so cool to meet another blogger in person for the first time. And she is so nice and stylish in person!

I’m off to get ready for dinner. I will be wearing the Casbah Dress this evening.

Have a great Easter weekend!

Not only did I have a reward card burning a hole in my pocket but also a J Crew gift card. I’ve done a major closet clean-out and am now only (trying) to buy items I will know I will wear. I’m really trying to create 3 outfits in my mind when considering buying an item. I’m not consistent with that process yet but I’m getting there.

Rainy Day Utility Jacket in Forest- Size 6 – $188 sale $99.99 – My PS put this in the fitting room for me. I didn’t care for it but it has a hood, fleece lining and a drawstring waist.

Utility Shirtdress – #39623 – Size M – This has a belt, 3/4 sleeves and mandarin collar. It was a little snug for me in the shoulders and upper arms. I’m not in need of a casual dress

No. 2 Pencil Skirt – Citron – Size 6 – I love J Crew pencil skirts and I know this specific color has been loved by many but, unfortunately, I was not one of them. I think it’s the fabric. Or the fact that I would have to alter the hem and I don’t think that the color is for me. The color is more saturated IRL than compared to the online pic. This fit TTS for me.

Floral Tulle Mini – Size 8 – $110 sale $59.99 – This came out a few weeks ago and is already on sale although the website still shows the regular price. I thought it was cute when it came out but I already have too many dresses and skirts for “just that special occasion” that I have not worn or rarely wear. It is a bubble hem but it’s very minimal.
Vintage Cotton Raglan Tee – Size M – $39.50 currently 20% off $31.60 – Good fit…TTS for me

Lunette Mini in Dark Beechwood – Size 8 – This is a cotton sateen and J Crew describes this as a lantern silhouette. It’s tulip to me. The front and back are the same. I like the fit of the 8 because it give a little more length. I prefer the navy color and can’t wait to wear it through the spring and summer!

Dark Navy – Size 6

Camp Pocket Cardigan in Smoldering Brick – Size Medium – $88 Sale $49.99 – Good fit and the pockets are/seem silk but I don’t like that they are right on the girls.
Silk Pocket Tank in Wave Crest – Size 6 – $68 – Not a big fan of this. It’s a little snug in the chest for me.

Hope these pics and comments help.
