Hello! I’m still here, posting regularly on Instagram and unfortunately less frequently here. After a few crazy J.Crew sales, I was feeling pretty shopped out as January finished up and then they had to go and really put things on sale, practically giving the store away with $9.99 and $19.99 clearance sales. But my friend and stylist at J.Crew tempted me back in to see the spring new arrivals for February 2019 and while my store didn’t get a lot of the gingham offerings that we’re seeing across the website, I still found some goodies to try and a few things that made their way home with me.

This top comes in a pretty orchid color as well as navy but knowing me, I’ll be looking for some white tops to wear during spring and early summer so I went with white. I’m wearing a small and this definitely runs big. At first I thought it was sort of meh but it looks way better tucked in and I really liked it with these jeans and I’ll be also trying with my lighter wash jeans which is how the top is styled on the website. I usually admire these eyelet tops on others and often feel like I can’t quite pull it off but I liked the more subtle style of this and I like that most of the front is solid with just the lighter weight neck and sleeves. I hope I get a lot of wear out of this since it came home with me. I am wearing my usual size 29 in the jeans which fit perfectly. I’m a big fan of the vintage straight jeans and they’re a nice change from skinny jeans.
