I had some returns to make and thought I would try on a few new arrivals I had eyed in the catalog. I have to say, besides the liberty prints this spring, I'm not loving the patterns at J Crew. It's probably good for me to take a little break anyway and focus on basics like nice work pants and a few holeless t-shirts anyway. With school about to end, I have to face facts that I will mostly be wearing casual shorts and tanks anyway. I will miss my little work wardrobe this summer :)
Jeweled Collar Short-Sleeve Shirt (size 2) in Navy
Cafe Capri in Seersucker (size 0)
I've seen people out in about in one or the other of these little jewel-collared numbers and I think they look so cute! I think the sleeveless version of this is better. The short is boring except for the jewels and feels a bit funny with the juxtaposition of a manswear shape and jeweled collar.
The pants I've tried on before and are lovely. See my full review here.
4" Chino Short (size 0) in Neon Pink and Navy
5" Chino Short (size 0) in white
Moto Mini in Linen (size 2)
This was something that intrigued me in the new rollout. There was no size 0 so I can't really review it the way I would like to. The linen is nice and the little funky details add some pizazz. It is a bit short (of course). I liked it overall but would really need to try on my regular size.
No. 2 Pencil Skirt in Polka Dot Jacquard (size 0) in Navy Ivory
The fabric has some texture to it which appeal to some. Gives the skirt a bit of thickness and makes it seem a little more luxe in my opinion.
What do you think of the latest offerings?
What do you choose for shorts - 4 inch or 5 inch? I can't decide!
