J. Crew Cape Jacket in Wool Melton and meeting a blog reader!

Hi Everyone!

The J. Crew Cape Jacket in Wool Melton  caught my eye immediately, but I almost passed on it because I wasn't sure about the camel color against my skin tone.  I am so glad that my Cincinnati VPS encouraged me to try this beauty because I LOVE it!

The reviews on this jacket will be polarizing because it has an oversized fit (and, it is not offered in a petite size).  So, sadly, you will likely be sized out if you are on the smaller side.

Here are three IRL pictures of the cape:

You can see my amazing husband snapping the pic in the window, LOL!  

Fit:  I took the size M/L in this cape.  Again, I love this piece.  The quality is superb.  

I styled my cape with the J. Crew Always Chambray Shirt, the J. Crew Biella Tassel Loafers, and the J. Crew Toothpick Jeans in Classic Rinse.  I cannot wait to wear this outfit this Fall!  Here is the Pinterest image that inspired me:

While in the Cincinnati store yesterday, I met a super sweet/cute blog reader!  As I was checking out, she asked, "Are you Rynetta?"  It was the sweetest encounter.  I am SO grateful that you spoke to me.  I had a great conversation with her and one of her friends about teaching!

As always, thanks for stopping by!

J. Crew Carrie Cami in Watercolor Floral

Hi Everyone!

The J. Crew Carrie Cami in Watercolor Floral caught my eye as soon as I walked into a retail store this past Monday.  The colors are absolutely breathtaking.  And, the Carrie Cami is one of my faves because it is a versatile and flattering piece!

I love how the watercolor floral print looks with the Deep Burgundy Downtown Field Jacket:

Fit:  I took my normal size 12 in this cami.  I highly recommend this print/cami!

J. Crew Collection Pencil Skirt in Graphic Peony

Hi Everyone!

The J. Crew Collection Pencil Skirt in Graphic Peony was at the top of my must-have list from the rollout that was released online today.  A fun, bold, and unique floral pencil skirt is a staple in my wardrobe.

This beautiful print does not disappoint IRL!:

I love the way the skirt is styled in the catalog with the Thomas Mason for J. Crew Bib Top.  I am wearing the skirt with the J. Crew Short-Sleeve Popover Shirt in Oxford Blue.

Fit:  I took my normal size 14 in this skirt, so the fit is TTS.

J. Crew Soft Lame' Shirtdress

Hi Everyone!

The J. Crew Soft Lame' Shirtdress was a surprise love for me!  I am super glad that I decided to try the dress.

Here are two IRL pictures of the dress:

Fit:  I took my normal size 14 in this dress.  I decided to wear the dress with the J. Crew Twisted Hammock Pearl Necklace, but the Gem Cluster Choker Necklace works well, too.  As Fall approaches, I will swap my Lillian Low Calf Hair Wedges for the Collection Dulci Calf Hair Kitten Heels.  The Clare V. Haircalf Foldover Clutch looks great with this dress, too!
