J Crew shirt, Topshop jeans, Acne boots, coach bag.
And the following day:
J and I found a restaurant with views over the harbour, food and booze, all for not too much $$$. Score!
The girls had unlimited passes to all the rides, so we could relax in the bar while they had a great time. We checked in with them every hour or so, and had lunch together outside. It was chilly, but not too bad - and the rain held off until later in the day.
J and I even managed a quick walk along the foreshore of the harbour to Lavender Bay. It's such a beautiful walk, even in the dreary weather.
I'm wearing a J Crew sweater, as some of you may have spotted!
Shame about all the ugly high rises along the foreshore.
Today, my friend C returned from her business trip to NYC. She did a bit of shopping for me:
J Crew Compilation necklace - I love this - I've been lusting after it since seeing it on Rynetta and Gigi. It didn't disappoint me at all. It's fairly heavy and really is a 'Statement' necklace. I'm not sure whether I'll manage to wear it in the way that the J Crew stylists favour, but I'll try!
The other J Crew item she bought for me is the scarf in punk floral:
I love this print, but knew that that shirt and skirt were too faffy for me. The cashmere sweater would have been great, but too much for a non classic cashmere and it looked more teal than green.
The scarf seem like a good way to add a bit of brightness to my winter outfits:
I'll take some better pics tomorrow. Today was very grey and rainy, so no natural light to speak of in our house.
In other exciting J Crew-related news, the Collection silk skirt in Monarch print (butterfly red skirt for those who don't memorise J Crew's complicated names) is due to be delivered! It was back-ordered until July 12th, but evidently someone returned one in my size or they miraculously found one hanging out in the warehouse. Anyway, I hope it'll arrive tomorrow afternoon, so I'll post pics of it soon (if it fits).
I'm a bit nervous, as some people have found it a very small cut. We will see.
Hope you've had a good weekend.
