Spot the Stripes

The third time's the charm for these adorable striped flats (if I may say so myself). The first pair fit much too small. The second pair was bought on sale, waiting to be worn with the right outfit. As it sat there, J.Crew decided to discount the flats even further, so back goes pair #2. Say hello to pair #3, bought during the recent final sale (which for once I didn't dread over fit).

That's my Goldilocks moment of the sale season.

Have a great day!

    1. What size do you wear, Molly? A 5.5 is still available (though I recommend you go up half a size from your normal) :)

  2. Adorable outfit, and I love those flats! I spotted them in the J.Crew final sale, but my size was sadly already gone. Love the polka dot dress, too. Great outfit :)

    1. Boo! I've been through the dilemma of "buy now at full price" vs. "wait for a final sale but risking my size be gone" too many times myself :( Perhaps keep an eye on eBay?

  3. i bought those flats awhile ago, i love them. i also have the similar looking heels. i bought the flats half a size up, since thats what the reviews i read said to do and they fit perfectly. i love them with that polka dot dress!

    1. Lucky duck! You're talking about the peep-toe version with a bow for the heels, right? They are SO CUTE! I saw something similar at Ann Taylor Factory where in place of a bow, they used a knot. The shoes themselves had the same navy/white stripe combo. SO CUTE but my size was long sold out.

    2. Alright, I just realized I capitalized SO CUTE twice. Still on a little coffee high even late in the afternoon apparently, haha.

  4. This is a lovely pairing. polka dots(check), stripes(check) and throw in some pop of color, perfect !!! Sadly my size was gone before I got my hands on it.

    1. If you must have them, I say call a store to see if they can search their in-store inventory. Or keep refreshing the site to see if there are pop-backs (unlikely given it's final sale, but someone may have bought it prior at a regular sale). Good luck!

    1. Are the leopard ones considered part of the Viv line? If so, I hope you went up half a size! As always, looking forward to your J.Crew reviews :)
