Shopping my closet yet again, I completely forgot that I had this J Crew Argyle Sweater. I remember when it came out last Spring, I simply had to have it and when I got around to ordering it, it was completely sold out in my size. Anyway, after stalking the site for a several weeks, (and this was all during J Crew's website fiasco), I finally found one in a Medium (yes, this sweater fits on the small side) and crossed my fingers that it would get shipped out to me. I was lucky to have gotten it.
Similar with the J Crew Chambray Skirt. FFM was the first to discuss how much she loved this skirt on the J Crew Aficionada site late Spring last year. Up to that point, I hadn't given this skirt much thought. Anyway, after her post, I checked it out and fell in-love with it. I had originally ordered it in a size 4. While the Size 4 fit in the waist, it was too short. I really wanted a skirt that skimmed my knee. So, after more scary stalker like behavior on J Crew, I finally found one in a size 6. The 6 is truly large in the waist. But to get the length I want, I had to size up. I wore the skirt for the first time today and I had it sitting right on my hip-bone. I like the look of it this way.
I paired both pieces with a Perfect Fit Flower Tank in Camel, left a couple of the top buttons on the sweater open to showcase the flower underneath plus donned the Wood-Bead Fireball Necklace to pull all of the browns and caramel shades together. I also had on Chocolate Brown opaque tights and knee-hi Franco Sarto Boots.
To keep warm, I wore the Lucinda Stadium Coat in Navy and a Camel Pashmina Scarf looped around my neck.
