New J Crew arrivals and ootd
Once again I was lured in by the extra 30% off sale tricks of J Crew. Today my box arrived and I'm not at all disappointed!
I ordered the lightweight boyshirt in stripe (inspired by Ina, Gigi and Rynetta). I decided on a size 0 and I think it's a good fit on me. I could possibly have gone with a 00, but it might have been a bit tight across the chest. This was a really adventurous order for me, as I rarely wear shirts, preferring knits and non-collared tops. However, I love this shirt and think I'll wear it a fair bit.
Here, I'm wearing it with a daft expression and cobalt J Brand jeans:
I swapped the jeans over here for J Crew Pixie pants, bought on eBay for a steal, and not running shoes! They are tan pumps:
I also ordered the Tippi sweater in Tipsy Parsons print, and this too is a winner. This is an xs, which is a nice, slightly slouchy fit on me. Again, probably could have gone the xxs, but I'd rather risk a larger fit than have tight sweater syndrome. Again, I'm wearing with the usual daft pose and expression, and black Pixie pants:
I love the print - it reminds me of an old wallpaper design. It's a mixture of black, dusky pink and cream. I think it will get a lot of wear with pants and jeans this winter. Also with a couple of skirts
Finally, yesterday's work outfit: petrol blue DVF dress, Jenny Kee scarf, Lover leather jacket and black tights with running shoes.
Any Online shopping moments of weakness for you?
PS if anyone knows how I can get this silly iPad to allow me to insert hyperlinks to other's blogs I would be eternally grateful. I can't be bothered hand coding....
