I was pretty happy last week with everything I picked out to wear for my Capsule Remix. I realized that I need to include an additional top, as a back-up, in case one is not easily laundered (i.e.-Dry Clean Only). I usually know ahead of time what the plans are for the week and if we have anything scheduled for the weekend. Last week, though, I originally was not scheduled to go in to the office on Friday, but luckily I had already planned out to wear my favorite outfit.

For this week’s remix, I have to plan around the weather. We already dropped to the 60s and had quite a bit of rain. My original plan was shorts and skirt but I have changed that to jeans and pants along with long-sleeve blouses and a few lightweight sweaters. Everything this week is J Crew, except the White Denim Jeans.

Lest you think I’ve stopped shopping during this remix, I have some Mother’s Day finds from The Limited, Banana Republic and Anthropologie coming up this week!

Did you hear???? J Crew now has REVIEWS online! Will you take advantage of that new feature? 

I haven’t purchased any J Crew Minnie Pants since they first came out a few years ago. I even sold the few pair I had due to fluctuating weight and fit issues with them. The print on the Minnie Pant in Foulard was too interesting to not try on. These are a size 8 and though they fit, they are a little bunchy in the front.


I had a size 6 brought to me and those fit much much better. I’ve already worn them with the Drapey Crepe Tunic in Navy. Always a good sign for a purchase when I wear it right away.

I was also able to try the Campbell Capri in Latticework Medallion. I chose a size 6 based on Gigi’s Review. I absolutely love the fit of these. The rise seems a little higher than the Cafe’ Capri. The length is about the same. I have hemmed all of my Cafe’ Capri’s and will probably do the same with these instead of ordering the 8 Petite. I like this print so I’m happy to have found a replacement for the Swoop Dress in Latticework Medallion that I returned.

With “heels” a la Gigi
Have you tried the Minnie’s in Foulard or the Campbell Capri’s? What do you think of the fit?
