Blue in J.Crew

Most of my purchases in the past two months has been from J.Crew. Their sales have been so... hard... to... resist. Armed with a gift card from Christmas, I lasted maybe... a month before spending it all. Try as I might, it's kinda hard not to be excited about wearing all new items at once, even if I do look like a walking J.Crew mannequin. I'm sure all the time I spent browsing the sale section and perusing the catalog has me mentally drawing heavy inspiration (if not ripping off exact styling) from photos I've seen. The closest sources I could find are plaid + bow tie and plaid + skirt.
sunglasses: Xhilaration (sold in stores)
lips: Revlon Super Lustrous Lipstick in wink for pink (sold here)
bow tie: American Eagle (similar)
shirt: J.Crew perfect shirt in ivory tartan (similar)
skirt: J.Crew Collection circle skirt (sold here)
rings: Forever 21 textured horse shoe (similar);
Forever 21 braid & chain stack ring set (similar)
tights: Forever 21 (similar)

  7. This outfit looks stunning on you. The circle skirt looks shorter on you than on the jcrew website. I like the shorter length a lot better. Those tights are a great find! No kidding about J.Crew's sale recently. I'm weaning...

    1. Yeah, I'm not sure how to explain the shorter length. I went up a size because I wanted the skirt to sit lower on the waist. I think the skirt definitely poofs out a lot more on me than on the model... somehow there just seems to be a lot more extra fabric, so that probably helps with the illusion of length.

  8. I love this skirt! The pleats on it are just perfect. And girl, you do NOT look like a walking j.crew mannequin. A few other bloggers though? I just want to tell them that there are other stores in the mall other than J.Crew!

    1. If you pore over the catalogs like I do, then you'd think so! Lol. Maybe not normally, but at least with this outfit ;)
