New J Crew Loot

Thank you Canada Post for my new duty-free J Crew loot!

Here is what I got.

Merino Lea Cardigan in snow. This is the last one I am ordering; I swear.

Printed silk twilll boatneck top. I thought I was ordering this print.

But this is what I got.
This is much brighter than something I would normally wear. Maybe it will turn out to be a good thing and force me more out of my comfort zone. I might have to get it tailored a tad bit. It flares out a bit at the bottom and that irritates me slightly.

Taffeta A-line skirt in champagne.
I love this skirt. I love that it is silk, but yet sturdy . I feel like it is not going to get heavily wrinkled in the course of a day like the silk Dupioni skirt.

And last, a swing skirt in bright poppy. I ordered this skirt about a month ago in a medium pewter. I love it but it is a bit big on me. I sized down for this one and it is a much better fit. This will be great for summer days, when a skirt and tank are my daily uniform.

Overall, I am pleased with this order. J Crew currently has an Extra 30% off promotion so I am going to try to score some more Final Sale gems tomorrow. I've got a few more purchases in mind. I'm thinking about the Victoria ruffle cami and the Linen-cotton Wendy skirt. What do you think; should I or shouldn't I?


  1. I have the silk twill boatneck top in the print that you got (navy/orange) I really like it! That said, I haven't worn it yet... but I plan to! I'm thinking keeping everything else very neutral and jewelry minimal and it will be a really fun look. :) And I recently got the Victoria cami in olive which is great and have been checking out the Wendy skirt! I like your choices :)

  2. Eek. I waited too long on the Wendy skirt. It's sold out.

  3. I absolutely LOVE the j.crew swing skirts. I guess they were from last summer's line, and I got the gray and the black. I'm like you...my summer outfits usually just consist of a comfy skirt and tee! This year, the Esplanade skirt looks identical and they have some good colors too. Great finds you have here! Oh, and I actually like the boatneck print that you ended up getting better than your original choice! I would keep it if i were you...so cute!
