Collared Eyelet Tee (size small) in Ivory
Liberty Postage Stamp Mini in Tresco Floral (size 4)
Excuse the belly shot. I'm trying to show that the skirt is sitting very low on my hips. Normally, I size up in JC minis but it is definitely not the case with this one. I'm obsessed with this print and think it is more manageable as a mini but definitely draws a lot of attention! The hips were also jutting out on the side. Perhaps my normal size 2 would fix all these issues!
The top is very sweet - J. Crew is very into Peter Pan collars this spring! The fit is awful - way too baggy and no waist shaping. I know this is a size bigger than I usually wear but it is clear that the cut of the shirt is straight.

Liberty 5" inch chino shorts in June's Meadow Floral (size 2)
I sort of liked these together. The shirt is quite thing and so appropriate for spring/summer. It might be a little short for some but I thought it very cute - I like the wide neckline. The shorts are another great way to enjoy the liberty print thing. The inseam is just long enough and the fit is quite slimming.
Liberty Toothpick Jean in June's Meadow Floral (size 27)
Eek. So cute. I realize that floral jeans will probably be out by next season but there is something so charming about them. These fit just like the Emma and Georgina Floral toothpicks (I always have to size up in toothpicks - closeup of pattern above). At first I thought I would like this print better (and I do close up - it's lovely) but I sort of like the way the Emma and Georgina looks on my body better.

I love the Lodden Paisley in this green colorway. GORGEOUS. This blouse is really, well, blousey. This is the smallest size and it is still pretty big. And I have to say it - I hate elastic hems. I never know what to do with the bottom of the shirt. Plus the side view is a bit pregnant looking. I really do like this blouse I just wish they made it with a regular hem.
Liberty Craze! Which pattern are you going for?
